While traveling to another village, Eli is caught in a strong and terrifying storm. Disoriented and afraid, Eli begins to pray for God's help. When there's no answer, Eli pushes aside his anger and remembers the wisdom learned from his mother, that God always answers our prayers but in ways not always anticipated and at times not always expected. Eli the Elephant is an encouraging book for both children and parents about prayer and the patience we need while awaiting God's faithful response. His tender care of Eli was very sweet and the persistent follow-through on His plan to have Noah choose Eli for the ark was great (and it showed Noah being very obedient to God, even when it was not convenient or easy for him to do so). It gives parents many ways to discuss the story and the biblical truths with their little ones. I love when Noah hugged his trunk and was so excited to find him and get him into the ark. - Jennifer R., Dallas, Texas Download and start listening now!
