My Little Blue Book of Stories and Pictures

45 Old Testament Stories and Activities to use at Home - Tiddlywinks series

by Maggie Barfield illustrations by Sonia Canals


Stapled A5 Pbk.
Price: £4.99
Publisher:Scripture Union (SU)
Published:01 September 2011
This is one from a set of 4 books with a total of 180 stories from the Bible. Each is lovingly presented with quoted verses from the Bible, a child friendly version of the story, a thought provoking simple picture to colour, and a short prayer. This Blue book looks at stories from Creation and the people involved, His first call to Abraham and some of his descendants through to Joseph and Moses. With a focus on the books of Samuel, children are able to see God through several of the stories with Samuel and David before seeing where God intervened with His love along the way. I have enjoyed using these with my young children as prompters for new stories and as reminders for stories we already know.

There is an A4 identical version of the book available.
