The Lovereading4Kids comment

Fifty Bible stories are retold here from both the Old and the New Testaments in this fine hardback with lovely, gentle watercolour illustrations throughout. Each story is prefaced with a one-line introduction explaining its place in the Bible, so children can gain a deeper understanding of the broader sweep and purpose of the Bible's stories as a whole.

Glowing pencil and watercolour illustrations add to its charm and appeal, and is specially presented in a pink edition, to make a wonderful gift for a girl.


The Lion Bible to Keep for Ever by Lois Rock

A leading Bible storyteller, Lois Rock uses all her understanding and skill to retell 50 favourite stories from the Old and New Testaments, with simplicity and sincerity.


Attractive illustrations with a soft focus and muted palette are sophisticated enough to appeal to older children, and the volume's small-but-thick size also gives it the look of a book intended for children in upper-elementary grades or middle school. An excellent choice for family reading or religious education programs. -- Kirkus Reviews
