Lily’s Desert Adventure is the second book in a first reader’s bible series that tells the story of the life of Jesus through the eyes of a little donkey named Lily. In the first book, Lily’s Secret, the carrot-munching, care-free Lily overcomes her initial fear and self-doubt of her ability to fulfill a huge responsibility, to safely carry Mary and Jesus, the unborn child, to Bethlehem. Once Lily successfully completes her task and Baby Jesus had been born, she thinks they can all go home. But when the Wisemen visit the Holy Family, she senses that something has changed.
In the darkest hour of the night, Joseph wakes her and says they have to hurry to a strange new land to keep Jesus safe. She is off to the desert, her journey still far from over, and another adventure begins.
