Review:
In this unusual book Dr Hazel Butler uses the shape and words of 76 rhymes and songs from our childhood, as the starting point for her re-telling of many Bible stories in a fascinating and intriguing way that hopefully will make you smile but also make you stop and think more deeply about the original stories.
Firstly she sets out the familiar rhyme then tells the story behind it where known, then with the relevant Bible verses quoted below, she weaves her own delightful rhyme to suit her chosen verses.
Researching the origin of the rhymes would have been a worthwhile task, to change the rhymes into works containing the message of the Bible is a labour of love that we are privileged to share.
