This story has a cartoon action type feel to it with the drawings but still depicts the bible stories reverently in my opinion.
I love that after each story section there is a “Life, Faith, Action!” segment which gives a little recap of the story, asks the reader some basic questions to build on Faith, and has a little prayer.
Also included in the back of the book is a “Hall of Fame visual index” which includes a list an alphabetical list of people throughout the bible (like Deborah, Abraham, Isaac etc) with some brief facts.
This book is recommended for ages 8 and below and is perfect for younger readers wanting to look at pictures or older readers wanting to read on their own. My boys enjoyed reading it before bed.
I received a copy of this book complimentary for blog and social media review. All opinions are my own.
