    Book of Mormon Animals

    Some of the animals mentioned in the Book of Mormon are pictured on these two pages. For a family home evening activity, have someone look up the reference where the animal’s name first appears and read the scripture. Then color the animal. (If possible, make copies of the pages for each family member or take turns coloring the animals.) No one knows what the cumom and curelom look like, so draw what you think they might look like.
