Children's LiteratureThis retelling of stories from the first five books of the Bible and the four gospels closely follows the Biblical record. The author's true storytelling ability will help a young audience relate to the material. Some background is included and connections of time and place between the stories are supplied to aid understanding. The author has an overall grasp of the material that allows for a graceful interpretation to make the texts meaningful. Passages inappropriate for young people are glossed over. This book comes with a gold-tone cross necklace fastened to it. It is one of the "Gifts of Grace" series. The cheap gray paper and paperback format does not do this book justice. Young readers will enjoy this insightful retelling of the Biblical stories and gain a better grasp of the way they connect to one another. 2005, HarperFestival/HarperCollins Publishers, Ages 8 to 12.
