Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Grade 2–5—The retellers do a credible job of adapting more than 50 Old and New Testament selections in sequential order. Each story is related in language that evokes biblical storytelling, giving the collection the feel of a real Bible with the accessibility of a shared read-aloud. The verse from which each story is derived is given under its title. For example, the collection opens with "The Creation of the World" (Genesis 1–2). Welply's realistic illustrations are not much different from those in any other children's Bible, but will help readers contextualize the place and time. A trusted name in children's literature, Osborne doesn't disappoint here, though she breaks no new ground.—Lisa Egly Lehmuller, St. Patrick's Catholic School, Charlotte, NC

I loved reading the Magic Treehouse series with my young kids. These bible stories are just as enjoyable. We took the book out of the library originally, but I'm buying a copy we can keep reading for years.
