It was illustrated by Richard and Frances Hook. The pictures throughout this book are truly a work of art. From the moment that I opened the package, I was transported back to my memories of the art work in my first Children’s Living Bible. I spent many hours of my childhood looking at those pictures.
In reading through this book, I can tell the care Mr. Taylor has taken with the details of Scripture, and he has included a few questions at the end of each story to give you a springboard for discussion. My children seem to remember Bible stories when they have had time to think and discuss the stories. And they also enjoyed retelling the stories back to me. The stories in this book are broken down into small sections, so it is easy to read and get to the meat of each story in a brief amount of time. That is an important thing for young children, especially if you have 5 boys.
I enjoyed sharing this book with my children, and I am sure that it will become a classic book that we will have on our family bookshelf for many years to come.
