Tweaky, the hummingbird, is a fictional character
who helps make the Bible story of Samuel come
alive. Sing Tweaky’s song and read his story and
then read the true story from the Bible in I Samuel
1 - 3. As you know, Tweaky is a fictional character
that is not in the Bible, but Tweaky enhances this
story. The Biblical account is mostly about Hannah,
Samuel’s mother. Nothing is said about how Samuel
felt when his mother left him at the temple. Our
story focuses on Samuel and his feelings. I’m sure
he was afraid when his mother abandoned him at
the temple. He felt humiliated when Eli’s sons
teased him. God knew Samuel and he had a plan
for Samuel’s life just as He has plans for our lives.
We just have to be quiet and listen to Him speak.
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 Samuel. They will want other
books about Tweaky and children from the Bible.
