Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "Gr. 3-5. This big, rich collection of biblical selections includes stories from the Old Testament, up to the book of Esther, and from the four Gospels and the first chapters of the Book of Acts in the New Testament. Rock recasts the biblical texts in a simple and direct, yet dignified language that simplifies without losing the essence of each story. Balit's stylized watercolor-and-gouache paintings, reminiscent of ancient Near Eastern art, appear in clever layouts on every page and add to the book's vitality. An index references the Bible chapters from which the stories are taken. Also included is a listing of people from the Bible, briefly telling who they were and citing the books and chapters of the Bible where they are mentioned. A good source that blows some fresh air into the sometimes musty realm of Bible stories. --Todd Morning"
