During our Bible time last year (when I had a Kindergartener and a 1st grader) I used The Jesus Storybook Bible by Sally Lloyd-Jones. My children and I really enjoyed our time together in this book. The illustrations were so interesting to my children. They would request that I wait to turn the pages so that they could look at each one a little longer.
I also love Sally Lloyd-Jones’ framing of these stories. The tag of the book, “Every story whispers His name,” is very appropriate. Each story drives you to the next one, to the Rescuer, to the One God promised, to Jesus. Many times while reading to the children, I had to fight my tears because I saw myself and my Rescuer. This book is so special to me now. That’s why I am excited to announce that…
Zondervan is publishing a deluxe version of The Jesus Storybook Bible. This will include audio recordings of each story, which can be purchased separately.
I listened to a couple of the online samples and am very pleased. Suchet’s narration is engaging. I know my little ones will enjoy listening to these CDs over and over again.
