This Bible storybook is sure to inspire all who read it. It covers some of the most popular stories from the Bible. In the table of contents each chapter name has a list of the chapters from the Bible, so that the reader can find the exact stories. Each story begins with a quote from the Bible and ends with either a selection from Psalms or a prayer.

I think this book of Bible stories is going to become a family favorite, to be passed down for generations.
One of the best parts of this book was the illustrations, by Alida Massari. I could study and learn from them on a daily basis. They would also work for art study. I liked how there were the same stories, but they were told in a new way. Lois Rock included more of the back story and a little bit of the future of God’s people. The quotes were from the Good News Bible, so they are easier for young children to understand. I appreciated the extras between the chapters, it was nice having different Psalms, poems, and prayers between the chapter. I also liked how the table of contents included all the books of the Bible that the stories were taken from.
I really recommend this book to families of young children. It will become a classic in your family. Find a copy for the young children in your life.
