The Lion First Bible by Pat Alexander

The Lovereading4Kids comment

Sixty Bible stories are retold here in easy-to-understand language matched by attractive illustrations. Taken from both the Old and the New Testament some are already very familiar such as the story of Adam and Eve, the story of Joseph and his coat of many colours, the story of how David defeated Goliath and the story of the baby Moses being hidden for safety in the bulrushes. The stories of the birth, life and death of Jesus are also included.


The Lion First Bible by Pat Alexander

The Lion First Bible has had previous sales of over 1.25 million copies, and is now available in paperback format for the first time. This Bible includes more than sixty Bible stories, specially chosen for young children: a foundation on which to build a growing knowledge of the Bible. With colourful, child-friendly illustrations and clearly laid out text, this retelling is ideal for beginner readers, and fantastic for reading aloud.
