100 Bible Stories from the Old and New Testaments told with scripture (Holman Christian Standard Bible), age appropriate discussion questions, brilliant and lively illustrations (Heath McPherson), and the best of all—the Christ Connection. From Adam and Eve to King Saul to Jonah to Mary and Joseph to the crucifixion to the first church to Revelation, each tied together to explain the purpose of Scripture. What can very easily be understood as segmented, unrelated stories becomes an epic adventure with one central character—Jesus, and one central purpose—God’s plan for salvation.
The Extras in this book are over the top brilliant. A Parent Connection guide on Page 6 provides practical tools to use with your child while studying the stories told on the pages. The Big Picture Icons are divided topically and initiate a meaningful dialogue, in addition to organizing the information. There is also an option to scan a QR code and download a free App wherein the illustrations come alive with movement and audio.
The cover of the book is sturdy and able to stand up to some rough handling.
There is a bookmark sown in for easy place-keeping.
The illustrations are appropriate, without being unrealistic, making this book a resource for younger (preschool) and older (elementary-aged) children alike.
