About the book

When an unusual creature is found under the old garden tree, not quite everyone is impressed. However, it takes a family on an experience they will never forget.

Noah and the Nestling is a heart-warming story aimed at children between the ages of 2 and 7 years – yet, its poignant message is relevant to all children.

Mary’s inspiration to write and illustrate this book was God’s love for children. Once, many years ago, she nurtured a baby bird presented to her by her cat. The whole experience brought home to her how we, as a people, care so much for the well-being of animals – how most of us would go ‘above and beyond’ to save the life of a creature. But what about our unborn children, she wondered. Her prayer for Noah and the Nestling is that it would ‘instil a deep truth’ in our children that all life is a precious gift from God.

“This beautiful story helps those who want to teach children how precious early life is. Its approach encourages a view that however small a human life, it has huge value.” – Andrea Williams, chief executive of Christian Concern
