My Very First Bible Stories

by Fiona Boon designed by Gabrielle Mercer


Padded Hardback
Price: £6.99
Publisher:Authentic Media
Published:January 2012
The original illustrations to these stories caught my eye immediately. They have the appearance of being reproductions of collages. Perhaps they Are! It certainly makes for an attractive and unusual appearance with the many different textures, it is a pity not to be able to feel them, but they are a pleasure to look at.
Then I started to read and the stories are told in rhyme – always a sure favourite of little ones who soon learn the words and ‘read along’ as the story is being told to them. From Creation to Heaven, and a whistle-stop trip though the Bible between, These stories are packed into one page rhymes which tell the individual stories with accuracy and charm.
A lovely book.
