Some old friends visited us this fall and passed along a fabulous recommendation: The Jesus Storybook Bible. I bought a copy and have been reading it to my children before school every week day. There are lots of great resources for kids out there, but this one is really amazing. The short narrative retellings of biblical stories portray Scripture as one big story (which it is). The idea of the book is that “every story whispers his name.” Each Old Testament story somehow builds toward the idea that God has a big “Rescue Plan” and the Rescuer (Jesus) is coming. And the art in the book is amazing. If you’ve got kids between 3 and 8 or 9, this is an excellent resource for helping them learn from and love God’s Big Story.
