Book Review - Eden: The Animals Parable by Keith Korman

Readers will be immersed in a intricate retelling of the Gospels in a new way.  We learn of Jesus and his disciples and his journey through the Holy Land through eyes of the animals that follow him; most notably his loyal dog and companion named Eden. Jesus's flock is joined by a donkey, small lambs, field mice, and a fox who follows but unsure what to do. The animals witness the divine events and don't follow understand what they see. 

When I first received this book, I thought it was something completely different. I don't understand how the first part of the book is a part of the Gospel and felt it could have been left out. The retelling was an interesting but difficult to read and understand during some parts. While, the cover looks kid-friendly, I am not sure if I would share this book with young readers.

**Disclosure - I received a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest opinion**
