The Bible and Me: Stories with a Message to Live By by Lois Rock, Alida Massari (Illustrations)

Thoughtfully retold, The Bible and Me begins with the faith stories of the Old Testament that tell of God’s unfailing love. The New Testament describes the coming of God’s son Jesus Christ, who by his life and teaching showed how all people could be reconciled to God. Finally, the stories of Jesus’ friends and followers are that of their faith, hope, and love. Each story ends with a prayer, psalm, or passage for reflection.

My Review

This hard covered book will become a go to book at your home for your little ones, geared to the 5 to 8 year old, great for little hands to bring to you to read to them.
As you turn the pages bring God’s word to them in a way they can understand, they eyes will be quickly drawn to the bright colors and illustrations on the pages. Bible stories retold in a way your little ones can understand. Starting with the Old Testament and forward to the New Testament, we travel from the Beginning, the great flood on to exile and return, then on to the child of Bethlehem, with 128 pages through to the new Jerusalem.
What a great gift for your own little one, or another child that you want to share your faith, hope and love with, and then with a special time for reflection. The perfect book to cuddle up with your child and share the word of God with, sharing the stories his unfailing love, giving the right messages for them to live by.
I received this book through Kregel Publishing and was not required to give a positive review.
