'God made the stars and put them up high to shine down on earth from up in the sky.' But long ago God made a special star. He put it in the sky to send a message: 'Jesus our Savior has come ' We can look at the stars at night. And we can remember that a long time ago, Jesus' star shone among them.

You can find Claudine diving the oceans with Technicolor fish, camel riding in the Sahara, trekking in a jungle populated with wild monkeys, or exploring the African savanna in search of huge elephants. Although adventurous, she sometimes gets scared when coming upon a giant spider or other scary beasts. At that time she heads back to the comfort of her studio, where she draws all the wonderful things she saw and dreams of her next visit to faraway lands.
