This is fun!
Bible stories told with rhymes that just beg to be read aloud!
Seventeen stories from Old and New Testaments told in such a delightful way that you just want to keep reading. Quite a heavy book, so definitely one to be read by an adult to a small child, but rhyming stories with superb collections of words to get your tongue around will surely entice older children to read it too! If I started to quote my favourite pieces for you I would end up copying the whole book.
Cartoon/Disneylike illustrations like nothing youve seen in a book of Bible Stories before. Colourful, expressive, it surprised me how much I loved them.
If you want something very different, yet still true to the Bible, then take a look at this and smile as you read.
Now Im going to read a bit more....
