Bibles for Children - the Jesus Storybook Bible!

The Jesus Storybook Bible: Every Story Whispers His NameI'm happy to share another children's Bible storybook with you . . . the Jesus Storybook Bible written by Sally Lloyd-Jones and illustrated by award-winning artist, Jago. This Bible storybook, "invites children to discover for themselves how Jesus is at the center of God’s great story of salvation—and at the center of their story, too."

Author - Sally Lloyd-Jones
Illustrator - Jago
Publisher - Zonderkidz
Ages 4-7

I love how each Bible story is tied in to Jesus and shares the most important story in the Bible with children! The first "story" explains this book the best. It says, "God wrote, 'I love you' - he wrote it in the sky, and on the earth, and under the sea. He wrote his message everywhere! Because God created everything in his world to reflect him like a mirror - to show us what he is like, to help us know him, to make our hearts sing." It goes on to say while some people think the Bible is all about rules telling you what you should or shouldn't do, it really is here to show us, "how life works best"! I love how it says, "But the Bible isn't mainly about you and what you should be doing. It's about God and what he has done."

The Bible stories are re-told like you or a grandma, might tell the story to your child/grandchild with the focus ever on Jesus - from cover to cover! The illustrations are unique and colorful. This is a Bible storybook children . . . of all ages . . . will love and is most importantly, one where they will be able to see there is a point to all the varied stories in the Bible . . . it tells us the "one Big Story of how God loves His children" and we can be His children! This truly is a wonderful Bible storybook! You can see a free download of one of the stories here!
