Adam Named the Animals from A to Z (Roma Downey's Little Angels)


From executive produer Roma Downey comes a faith-affirming brand created just for preschoolers. As twins Alex and Zoe are pondering the names of the animals at the zoo, the Little Angels appear and begin to tell the story of the job that God gave to Adam in the Garden of Eden -- to name each animal. Charming illustrations join the text, which names an animal for each letter of the alphabet. This book is great fun -- a biblical story, an alphabet primer, and a romp through the zoo all rolled into one. Ages 2-5.

Meet the Author


Born in Detroit and raised in Southern California, Diane Stortz has lived in Cincinnati, OH, since graduating from Arizona State University with a BA in journalism. She writes for children and adults with one goal: Making God's wonders known to the next generation.

In January 2000 Diane joined a group of women who planned to read through the Bible in a year and meet weekly to discuss what they had read. The experience taught her that reading the Word to get to know God changes lives because God changes lives. Her heart’s desire now is for children (and their moms and dads) to know God’s Word so they can know God.

Through her blog at, Diane helps parents, grandparents, teachers, and caregivers find the best in Christian children’s books. She also offers encouragement and tips for engaging the Bible, sharing God’s Word with children, and the importance of reading good books aloud.

Diane and her husband have two married daughters and five young grandchildren—all boys! When she's not writing, Diane enjoys walking, gardening, and planning her next trip to visit her grandkids.
