Angel Asks:
What Would You Do?

Angel is a little bit spunky. Of course there are times when she messes up. She is always trying to better her life by trying to do the right thing. This book looks at some interesting situations and Angel wants to know what you would do. Take these circumstances and think about what would be right in your life.
This is an interactive book from Zion Zoo Stories to help your child look at 10 situations that could occur and what to do about it. This is a good book to teach the right and wrong principles God has laid out for us.

Billy Bison Goes Bad

Zion Zoo Stories presents another venture into the lives of the inhabitants of Zion Zoo. The characters here parallel us, as we sometimes stray from our walk with God. Throughout it all, there is always a way to turn things around as we are shown through God’s Word, the right way to live. Follow along with your child as Billy finds out that, even though we are basically good, we can be influenced if we hang around the wrong people (or animals) and get caught up in the works of darkness. Of course we can always get back on track by asking God for forgiveness and turning our lives around.
God bless you as you delve into another adventure from Zion Zoo Stories.

Billy Bison Goes Bad
(Spanish Edition)

Las historias del zoológico de Zion representan otra aventura de los habitantes del zoológico de Zion. Los personajes aquí nos reflejan, ya que algunas veces nos alejamos de nuestro caminar con Dios. A lo largo de todo, siempre hay una forma de cambiar las cosas como se muestra a través de la palabra de Dios, la manera correcta de vivir. Sigue junto con tu hijo como Billy descubre que a pesar de ser buenos en general, podemos ser influenciados si pasamos tiempo alrededor de la gente equivocada (o animales) y quedar atrapados en las obras de la oscuridad. Claro está, nosotros siempre podemos regresar a nuestro camino, pidiéndole a Dios que nos perdone y cambiando nuestras vidas.

Dios te bendiga mientras te sumerges en otra aventura de las historias del zoológico de Zion.
Mr. Dennis

Jerry Giraffe Gets Fat

Jerry Giraffe Gets Fat is the first book in Zion Zoo Stories that highlights a principle that God wants us to live by. We should all listen to what God tells us through his scriptures and live by them.

Luke 6:31 “And as ye would that men should do to you, do ye also to them likewise.”

Background of Author: Dennis A. Crumrin
My wife and I were involved in Children’s Church for over 25 years. I was the leader and my wife was an expert puppeteer.  We did not use the regular church curriculum. Each week God would give me a scripture to work with and then inspire me to create ways to inspire in the kids what God was trying to teach them. I would usually create a theme with different methods to ensure the kids would remember.  I might have a fun, scripture learning game, a puppet skit, a song or two and then before the class was over I would have a story about some of the animals and characters of Zion Zoo or any other story that God would put in my head. I was Mr. Dennis, the Head Zookeeper. Ashton and Kaylin were assistant Zoo Keepers. And of course there were all of the animals. Each week one or more of the animals or people would embark on life’s adventures and learn from their experiences at Zion Zoo.
I have kept several of the stories that I used and my desire was to recreate an atmosphere in these books, that adults could either read or act out the stories to their children, and of course, so the kids could read them for themselves.
I hope you enjoy these books, and I especially pray that God will use them to touch the hearts of people everywhere.
God Bless You,
Dennis A. Crumrin (Mr. Dennis)
