About Catherine F. Vos
Catherine F. Vos is the author of The Child’s Story Bible. She inherited these adapted biblical stories from her mother and recorded them in her spare time, shaping each story and creating each illustration. She married Geerhardus Vos in 1894 who later became one of the most influential Calvinist theologians of the twentieth century.

The detail in this book is astounding. Several times my husband and I have read something out loud in this book and thought, " that wasn't in the Bible!" When we stop to look it up, sure enough, Vis had pulled up a detail that we just never noticed before. The author's respect for scripture and attention to detail shows throughout the book.
Vis is also very talented when it comes to making my these stories dramatic and emotional. The stories are engaging, and even my 21st century kids beg for more every night. I can't recommend this book highly enough!
For those starting out with young children, I highly recommend trying and buying lots of different children's Bible books. I love all the different things that different Children's Bibles incorporate. And I like that the kids are really drawn to all the different ones. It makes reading and talking about the stories and integrating the truths into our lives easier, as opposed to having just one single Bible story book. And the more I've gotten, the more interested my kids are in our family devotion times where we read straight from the NASB.
