The Ruby Bird

Based on a true story from the Ottoman Empire. Presented with a ruby and emerald broach, the Ruby Bird fell into the hands of the Sultan Suleiman the Magnificant. For years, the broach lay in a jeweled box, untouched, until his seventh wife found it. She pinned it on the sultan’s turban, and soon after, the Sultan passed away. Upon his death, the palace became a museum. His statue, garbed in his royal robes and jeweled turban was displayed in a museum as a tribute to the glorious years of the Ottoman Empire. A trusted night watchman stole the ruby bird from the turban and sold it in the black-market bazaar for a handsome price. He and the Ruby Bird disappeared. And thus the story begins.

A read-aloud book for young children, filled with stories that will amuse them and tell of God’s great love for each of them. I believe we must teach our children, even before they can talk, about honoring their parents, forgiving, finding the joy in giving, waiting on God’s timing, saying a simple prayer, sharing, and loving one another. The Ten Commandments are hidden within each story—not with don’ts, but with dos. Love one another as God has loved us.
