The Bible and Me - Stories with a Message to Live By - By Louis Rock & Alida Massari


5 Stars!

ABOUT THE BOOK -
Lois Rock and Alida Massari have teamed up to create a Bible storybook full of inspiration and delight, sure to elicit moments of contemplation. Each section begins with a Bible quote and ends with a prayer or psalm that fits the theme of the story to help readers reflect further on what they've read. Alida Massari's richly colored and deeply peaceful illustrations fit perfectly with the meditative theme. Includes twenty stories from the Old and New Testaments.
Thoughtfully retold, The Bible and Me begins with the faith stories of the Old Testament that tell of God’s unfailing love. The New Testament describes the coming of God’s son Jesus Christ, who by his life and teaching showed how all people could be reconciled to God. Finally, the stories of Jesus’ friends and followers are that of their faith, hope, and love. Each story ends with a prayer, psalm, or passage for reflection. 

ABOUT THE AUTHOR AND ILLUSTRATOR -
Lois Rock is the author of numerous children's titles that have been translated into more than 30 languages, including A Child's First Book of PrayerThe Lion Book of 1000 Prayers for Children, and My Very First BibleAlida Massari is an award winning artist.

MY THOUGHTS -
Loved this one! I am so glad I got to review a Bible story book that was for older children instead of toddlers for a change (5 - 8 yr. olds)! This one is perfect for those in-between children. Too old for simple picture Bible story books but to young to really understand the full meaning of the Bible.

Each story begins and ends with scripture right from the Bible. So if it was me doing this with a child (my someday grandchildren) I would take a moment and look up the verses in a Bible with the child to show them that they really do come from the Bible. Then read them from the Bible so they can hear it from there. This is a great segue to get them used to reading the actual Bible. I really like this idea - using both together like as a Bible study.

This is a gorgeous hardcover book with even more gorgeous pictures!



I highly recommend this Bible story book, especially for Grandmothers to do with their grandchildren.  :-)

Thank you Kregel Publications for sending me this beautiful book for my honest review!
