Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Carlee Hallman
This retelling of Bible stories is written to be read aloud. Surprisingly some of the stranger and gorier stories are included such as the smoking fire pot moving over animals cut in half, those who plotted against Daniel being eaten by lions along with their wives and children "until only their bones remained," and Jael killing Sisera with a tent peg. The Ten Commandments are written as eleven sentences and are not numbered so no one tradition is favored. However, the Roman Catholic interpretation of Peter's confession is used. The Gospels are combined to become one narrative such as the boy with the loaves and fishes in the feeding of the five thousand being followed by Christ's and Peter's walking on the water. The colored illustrations of Samson pulling down the temple and Jonah and the giant fish are truly fearsome. Other pictures pick up interesting details such as the buyers examining Joseph's teeth as he is sold into slavery and David with the piece of Saul's cloak after Saul's night in the cave. The Bible passages are cited before each story. An error cites Genesis for the story about Solomon. Although the stories are factually told, the spirit of the Biblical narrative seems missing. Reviewer: Carlee Hallman
School Library Journal
Gr 2–5—The retellers do a credible job of adapting more than 50 Old and New Testament selections in sequential order. Each story is related in language that evokes biblical storytelling, giving the collection the feel of a real Bible with the accessibility of a shared read-aloud. The verse from which each story is derived is given under its title. For example, the collection opens with "The Creation of the World" (Genesis 1–2). Welply's realistic illustrations are not much different from those in any other children's Bible, but will help readers contextualize the place and time. A trusted name in children's literature, Osborne doesn't disappoint here, though she breaks no new ground.—Lisa Egly Lehmuller, St. Patrick's Catholic School, Charlotte, NC
