Bestselling author Anthony DeStefano brings the vain and possession-loving Roxy the camel to life to demonstrate the familiar Bible verse: It is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle than for a rich man to enter the kingdom of God. Little ones ages three and older will learn that possessions are only things…and definitely NOT the most important things.
Brightly illustrated by Richard Cowdrey and written in engaging, funny rhyme, this storybook follows Roxy’s journey from her waterless home in the desert to a great city of beauty she’s heard about but never seen. Along the way she learns that the only way to attain true happiness is to share—or even give away—what she possesses.
