Candle Bedtime Bible

Three, Five and Ten-Minute Stories

by Karen Williamson Illustrated by Christine Tappin


Price: £7.99
Publisher:Candle Books imprint of Lion Hudson
Published:September 2013
This book features three to five and 10 minute bible stories, allowing you can pick the quick ones if you want, or choose the longer ones if you want to snuggle and spend time with the children before bed.

Of course the great thing with this book is that though it's being sold as a bedtime bible and designed ‘for parents' it's actually a really good story bible with great, well written bible stories and illustrations that are very sympathetic to the original material whilst being fun and engaging for younger ones too. But what is really good about it is that it is perfect for any time of the day-and to be honest because of the time grading involved it also makes a great bible resource for teachers or childrens workers too as the 3 minute stories would be great for assembly time!
