Lost in the African Bush, is an adaptation of a radio script that played on the Children’s Bible Hour. The story is about Elijah Bingham and his wife who were missionaries in Africa.
The premise for the story is that Elijah and his wife sometimes traveled to the United States where they stayed with a boy named Micah and his family. While visiting, Elijah told the story about the time he got lost in the jungle. Micah and his family hear how God helped lead Mr. Bingham home one very dark night when he had forgotten his flashlight.
Micah learns how God can help us in unexpected ways when we are faced with danger.
The illustrations by Mitch Heinze are done with muted colors but with great attention to detail.

What I Dislike: Nothing.
