The Lion First Book of Bible Stories by Lois Rock


The Lion First Book of Bible Stories by Lois Rock

With an easy-to-read text from a much-loved reteller of children's Bible stories, and lots of illustrations packed full of character, this treasury of Bible stories is designed to introduce young readers to the great stories that have shaped western culture. 18 stories are retold from the Old and New Testaments, covering the Bible's most well-known events and best-loved people, from creation to Jesus' crucifixion and resurrection. Along with Barbara Vagnozzi's bright illustrations which fill the pages, these easy retellings are compellingly child-friendly throughout.


Right from the first page I found that the words were itching to be read out loud. There is every opportunity for plenty of expression and the chance to make the stories really memorable for a young child.
