My Little Purple Book of Stories and Pictures

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

by Maggie Barfield illustrations by Sonia Canals


Price: £4.99
Publisher:Scripture Union (SU)
Published:16 March 2012
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 Purple book looks at stories from Creation, those God first called His chosen people and some their lesser well known descendants as well as those we are more familiar with. The focus in Kings and Psalms helps children to appreciate where some of the Bible characters fit in the bigger picture and look at the many different ways that God shows His love. 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.
