Overview

From Scholastic and the American Bible Society comes a collection of timeless stories of faith and values for parents and children to share all year round.

Arranged by months and themes, the Bible stories, hymns, prayers, and classic stories in the collection emphasize faith and values. For example, in June, the story of Abraham recalls the theme of honoring our parents, while in January the story Jacob and Esau with its theme of forgiveness is a perfect way to start the New Year. Other stories in this collection include the story of Moses, Naomi and Ruth, Esther, Jesus the Teacher, Palm Sunday, and classics such as The Boy Who Cried Wolf and Androcles and the Lion.

The perfect collection for parents and children to read aloud and discuss.

Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Carlee Hallman
This collection of poems, Bible stories, fables, and adaptations of stories from books is intended to be read with parents. Told with a minimum of excitement and emotion, the works were chosen to instill virtues such as: kindness, honesty, and humility. Some of the selections are Moses parting the Red Sea, Jesus' teachings in the Sermon on the Mount, "The Ant and the Grasshopper," "The Story of William Tell," and "The Sluggard," by Isaac Watts. The material is arranged by months of the year to correspond to holidays found in a particular month. The months of the year, therefore, are listed in the table of contents" instead of the works themselves. Though not numbered, the Ten Commandments are separated according to Reformed religious preference. Colored watercolor and pen illustrations by Miralles mark the monthly divisions while grayscale illustrations by Vicente are found within the stories. This book harks back to an earlier time of moral lessons and sweet, literal illustrations.
