Tweaky and Miriam is a 38 page, large 8 x 10 picture book.
Tweaky, the hummingbird, is a fictional character
who helps make the Bible story of Miriam come
alive. Sing Tweaky’s song and read his story and
then read the true story from the Bible in Exodus
1 and 2. As you know, Tweaky is a fictional character
that is not in the Bible, but Tweaky enhances this
story. Miriam is frightened when her mother makes
a basket and puts baby brother in the bulrushes.
I’m sure she was upset when she saw him being
pulled from the water. Tweaky helped her stay
calm so she could decide what to do. She was
brave when she suggested her mother for his nurse.
God puts us in situations sometimes when we can
help others. We just have to be willing to be used.
Your child will enjoy Tweaky’s story.  As they sing
his song, Tweaky becomes a comfort to them. What
better way to get children interested in reading the
Bible than through getting involved in the Bible story.
They will want to read the true account from the
Bible and learn about Miriam and Moses. They will
want other books about Tweaky and children from
the Bible. Start a collection for you and your child—
you will want the whole set.
