Lessons From All Things Bright and Beautiful  Jun 5, 2008
After my friend Scott Patton had finished "Learning With the Lizard" he showed me some of his artwork for his next book. To be honest I loved the artwork but I had to ask him "Just how exactly are you and Sam going to write a devotional book about plants?" The devotional book I was referring to eventually became "Stories Under the Sycamore Tree" by Samuel J. Hahn and Scott Patton. The book is divided into nine sections each featuring plants which are referenced in the Bible. Each chapter begins with a plant as the subject, a Scriptural reference is given for the basis of the lesson, then the lesson about the plant is given, along with the plants correlation in the Bible, there is a lesson summary, then a prayer which follows to close the chapter.
Our family has used this book for family devotions.
This would make a great addition to any family library!
 
Stories Told Under the Sycamore Tree  Jun 24, 2006
What a great adventure awaits the reader when illustrated pages turn on the theme of the plants in the Bible! Each of the 52 lessons is prefaced by a relevant scripture; then follows an inspiring and factual message by author, Samuel J. Hahn. Lessons are drawn out as an object for living and the reader is blessed with a prayer connecting the themes each plant displays. Colorful and accurate illustrations of each flower, tree or shrub by Scott Patton compliment the text. This is more than an inspiring resource, it is a joyful discovery!
 
stories told under the sycamore tree  Jun 16, 2006
What an enjoyable book. The delicate illustrations enhance the stories and information. I have used this book as the basis of a program for a club meeting. You can read it all in one stretch or just take a topic at a time. Soothed by the language in the tales, you are surprised by how much you have learned. I keep this book in the guest bedroom for my friends to enjoy when they visit. As a librarian, I recognize the pleasure awaiting readers who purchase these stories.

This interesting book about plants and trees mentioned in the Bible could provide
a whole unit of study for a group of young people or adults. It includes little known
facts and uses for so many fruits, flowers, and trees. It is so informational! I enjoyed the book very much.
