The Story For Little Ones

Foreword by Max Lucado & Randy Frazee, illustrations by Josée Masse


Price: £14.99
Publisher:Hodder and Stoughton
Published:Spring 2012
Apparently simple illustrations are actually detailed enough to express the stories well and accurately. The accompanying words are taken from the NIV Readers edition as are the words on The Story for Kids, for adults and for teenagers, but here they are adapted to suit the age group. For instance in the story of Moses it says Pharaoh did not let the Israelites ‘keep their baby boys’ rather than the phrase in the book for older children ‘you must throw every baby boy into the river Nile.’ Each of the thirty one stories end with a statement about God in bold type.
This ranks among the very best of Bible story books for this age group. Highly recommended.
