Stories from the Bible
Reading through the text written by Kathleen long Bostrom, I am struck by how she has remained true to scripture which is important to me, yet at the same time her words have managed to bring scriptural accounts to life for the young reader.
“And he gathered the water into crashing, splashing oceans and seas, and shimmering, glimmering lakes that trickled and rippled into streams and creeks and puddles. Land spilled out and settled beneath the sky, mighty mountains and valleys, rocks and sand and clay.” – Text from Stories From the Bible.
Don’t her words just bring to life a picture of God creating our earthly home so beautifully?
The book is illustrated by Dinara Mirtalipova, she has done a lovely job illustrating the stories. Her bright, colorful drawings are appealing to the young reader. I think my favorite illustration in the book has to be of Jonah and the Whale. I love her cross-section representation of Jonah sitting in the whales belly, and the whale itself has to be the most colorful whale I ever did see.
