The Bible and Me

I received a copy of THE BIBLE AND ME: STORIES WITH A MESSAGE TO LIVE BY by Lois Rock from Lion Hudson via Kregel in exchange for an honest review.  This hardcover book is beautifully illustrated by Alida Massari. 

I read this children’s’ book a little differently than previous books.  Normally, I read them and think about my days in college learning to be an elementary teacher.  I think about the kids I taught and the kids I know through family.  This time, however, I thought about my soon-to-be-born baby (although this is geared more towards children than babies).  This is definitely a book I want to keep so that someday he can cherish it.  It is a hardcover, so it is perfect for treasuring for years to come.

The illustrations accompany child-appropriate retellings of well-known Bible stories.  I can see a parent reading this to his or her child, and having the shortened version expanded into a conversation.  I can also see the parent starting a conversation from these stories on how to be a better person and how to seek greater fulfillment from each day.

I highly recommend this as an addition to any children’s home library and as a great gift.
