Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
Beginning with a map of places in the Bible, this handsomely illustrated book follows the order of the Bible and introduces readers to key characters in the Old and New Testament. "What did God create to fill the universe" is followed by "Where did Adam and Eve Live." Offspring may follow parents, and events may cause other events, and so knit this book of short selections together like one continuous story. The narrative quality of the text ends abruptly with facing pages of three questions and answers about Saul/Paul. For those familiar with the stories, it's a good review and for those who aren't, enough information is given to make this an interesting and mostly coherent view of the characters, events, and outcomes of the Bible. What it lacks, of necessity, is the poetry, complexity, and emotional power of the original. The full-color paintings, by a variety of artists, are shared in another volume, The Kingfisher Children's Who's Who in the Bible, but are computer manipulated or edited so as to appear slightly different. Both cover somewhat identical content; however, this one covers more events, which in spite of the Q/A format, reads smoothly and easily. It's a good choice for family read-alouds and a good reference volume, as well, with a glossary and index included. 2002, Kingfisher Publications,

Gr 2-4-Chronological excerpts from Old Testament stories and New Testament accounts of Jesus's life and teachings and Paul's experiences answer such questions as, "Why did God send a flood to destroy the world?" and "Who killed John the Baptist?" The material is freely interpreted. The simple, clearly written text in large type is interspersed with brightly colored realistic illustrations in various sizes by several artists, resulting in an eye-catching but somewhat cluttered format. Most of the pictures are repeated in Claire Llewellyn's The Kingfisher Children's Who's Who in the Bible (2002). Citations to specific Scripture passages are not given. Useful as a supplement to Bible-story collections for church-school classes.-Patricia Pearl Dole, formerly at First Presbyterian School, Martinsville, VA
