The Bible is retold in twenty key stories, ten from the Old Testament, ten from the New. Each occupies 6 double page spreads, making the book easy to read in episodes to a very young child. The stories are told simply yet faithfully and with great respect for the original text. Alex Ayliffe's illustrations are bold and engaging. Schools will find this a useful resource for assemblies and story times. The text is simple enough to be read by the newly-independent reader.

We have used this in our Religious Education Classes in grades from Preschool through grade two. The children love the pictures. The stories are easily read out loud. I have gone out of my way to provide them to all our classes.
