A free-spinning whimsical re-telling of the Biblical classic, Zacchaeus.
A poignant message for our time in playful rhyme and verse.
The engaging illustrations set the tone for a delightful reading experience for the entire family!
Dedicated to children everywhere
The story of Zacchaeus I’d like to share
Within these pages the story is told
Of a man named Zacchaeus, a mean man of old
An exciting retelling of how Zacchaeus met
A pilgrim named Jesus whom he will never forget.

Zacchaeus was a clever crook

as we have read in the Holy Book.

His riches grew as he robbed the poor,

and still in his greed he wanted more.

In physical form, he was not tall.

The Bible says he was very small.

It seems that he was curious too f

or what the Bible ways is true.....

“Trot-trot! Clop-clop! ...the sounds grew loud,

As on came the Carpenter, the donkeys, the crowd.

And Zacchaeus was in an emotional glee

As he looked down from out of the Sycamore tree.”

(excerpt from page 10)
