This book is a must in every family library, pre-school library and sunday-school teacher's resource box. The stories are clearly told with appropriate Scripture references, the illustrations are delightful and are great discussion pieces, and each story finishes with an assurance to the child that they are loved by God. Both my 4 and 8 year old children demand this book regularly at bedtime. I look forward to a sequel.

I think this is the best Bible story book that I have ever seen. It is light and fresh, but also insightful. It is beautifully illustrated (as always) and some of the illustrations are really comical.
I was, however, slightly disappointed with the text as it lacks the exuberance that makes some books a pleasure for adults to read and re-read and re-read. But it is a minor gripe - my two year old loves this book and often requests it.
I would certainly recommend it and plan on buying their 'Animal Tales' too.

A creative presentation of some of Jesus' stories - retold and illustrated with insight and humour. My two year old particularly likes the 'missing coins story' as a cat features quite prominently. Slightly less exuberant than other books written by these authors, but a FAR better read than most Bible story books.

As usual Nick Butterworth has hit exactly the right spot. The stories are retold in a way that children will listen to and understand. My own children and Toddler group can not get enough of this book. The illustrations are again amusing and perfect for the text. Keeps the adult reader as interested as the child listener. We have bought many copies of this as gifts.It makes a perfect CHRISTENING PRESENT.

This book is great for a family. I would love to use it for my church, but it does not give permission for photocopying use. This is frustrating, as one usually only wants 1 or 2 pages when teaching a parable.

The book itself is in good condition and the content is ideal for a group of children to use as a team effort but some of the pages at the beginning had already been 'coloured' in.

I bought these as a Junior Church prize- they are excellent as they have the drawings and words and children can colour them in - they are a good quality book

A perfect choice for working through some bible stories with my toddler. I love the Nick Butterworth renditions and this is a lovely accompaniment. :D
