An accomplished author and illustrator team come together to present a children's Bible, full of charm and grace. 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. 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. This keepsake Bible is graced with glowing pencil and watercolour illustrations, which add to its charm and appeal, and is specially presented in a pink edition, to make a wonderful gift for a girl.
