99 Stories from the Bble, by Juliet David Illustrated by Elina Ellis

4.5 Stars!

ABOUT THE BOOK -
Following the narrative of the Bible, this collection of 99 stories starts with At the Beginning, and covers a wide variety of key events, including Samuel Listens, Esther, A Blind Man Sees, and Jesus Walks on the Lake, through to One Day Jesus Will Return. Each story is told over a double page spread with vibrant illustrations and some full page art.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR -
Juliet David has written many children’s stories and Bible activity books. Her other interests include painting, music, and travel to Israel and other Bible lands. This experienced author lives in London with her family.   

ABOUT THE ILLUSTRATOR -
Elina Ellis - I started drawing as soon as I learned how to hold a pencil, or probably even earlier. It helped me a lot in life. The kids at school used to like me, because I drew funny caricatures of teachers and the teachers liked me because I drew all the school posters.
After school and university I used to draw for newspapers and magazines and now I enjoy illustrating children’s books and creating greeting cards.
Illustration is my passion and there is no greater reward for me than to know that my pictures make people smile.


MY REVIEW -
This is a real nice hardcover Bible story book. It is very simple, even simple enough for real young children. I think this would be a great book to read each night before bed along with your bedtime prayers.
Even though it is real simple and may be a little to simple for older children, only touching on the actual Bible, I think it is enough to give young children a taste of the Bible and to get them interested and possibly wanting to know more.

This pictures in this book are beautiful! A full color picture for each page, for each little story. This bright colors and simple pictures will be sure to draw in young eyes.

And trust me, the pictures I took do not do it justice!
