Olive and Friends

As part of the Blog Tour for Olive and the Great Flood, I want to share with you this short video showing Olive as she interacts with her new friends on the ark with brief notes of what the book is about. You probably already know the story of Noah's Ark but not how special the little dove really was. This will also give you a glimpse of a few of the beautiful illustrations by Kathleen Bullock. Hope you enjoy!

The full schedule for the tour can be found at Connie Arnold, Children's Author. Be sure to comment to be entered to the prize drawings for a gold dove wind chime or a copy of my first children's book, Animal Sound Mix-up.

May you be blessed in remembering how God saved Noah and his family along with the animals (including Olive!) and celebrate the promise of the rainbow and God's abundant love and protection.


Olive and the Great Flood

Olive and the Great Flood is available from Amazon, Guardian Angel Publishing or a signed copy from my Children's Books website so you can share her story with the little ones in your life!
