K-Gr 3This inviting Catholic Bible for young readers gathers 105 well-known stories from the Old and New Testaments. The text is based on Saint Paul’s Holy Bible and it has been approved by the International Catholic Society (SOBICAIN) in Spain. Narrated in a traditional manner, with short, rhyming sentences, the accessible compilation includes important stories such as the Creation, the flood, Daniel in the lion’s den, and the life and miracles of Jesus. The watercolor cartoon illustrations emphasize the actions, and they carefully avoid nudity in Genesis and overly graphic representations of the passion and crucifixion. Though some of the vocabulary may be challenging for beginning readers, an appended glossary provides the meaning of dozens of terms likemirra (myrrh), lepra (leper), and langosta (locust). Recommended for public libraries and bookstores.
