Yorkshire Parables does exactly what it says on the cover. It tells modern-day stories aimed at children aged 6+ (and adults), inspired by the parables of the Bible. They give a positive message about living your life and caring for other people.
There’s even a hidden ‘Easter-egg’ competition in this book. The names of some local Yorkshire businesses are hidden in the text of some of the pages. Crack the code, follow the instructions in the book, contact us, and you’ll have be entered into a draw to win the product you’ve found at the end of the year. The prizes vary in value: the harder ones to find are generally the more expensive ones!
