Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
Gr 2-6-In a clear, conversational style that is without sentiment or distortion, this superb retelling of the principal events in the Old Testament, the Gospels, and Acts, as well as a few cogent excerpts from Paul's letters and Revelation, smoothly weaves together a memorable, extensive narrative of God's relationship with the Jews and Christians of biblical times. Filled with expressive action, the glowing, folk-art watercolors are arranged around the crisp, easily readable text and decorate the outer margins of the pages and endpapers. Although there are many fine Bible-story collections, this is a worthy addition to the genre because of its scope and style of writing.-Patricia Pearl Dole, formerly at First Presbyterian School, Martinsville, VA Copyright 2003 Cahners Business Information.

    Simple

    This is a great bed time story bible for young kids. My toddlers love it. The stories are short and concise but the core of the story is not jeopardized. It is a great book for teaching kids bible stories. I think it may be to simple for the 8 to 12 age bracket that they suggest.
