61nhd8vcrbl_aa240_ Recently, my husband came in from putting Jack to bed and he was all excited. He had just been reading our son a new children’s Bible storybook and he was delighted with it’s Christ-centered approach. So, because we like to keep you up-to-date on the resources we are benefiting from, here is Steve’s endorsement of the Jesus Storybook Bible: Every Story Whispers His Name by Sally Lloyd-Jones and illustrated by Jago:

I love this Bible because it does what few other children’s Bibles have done: it keeps Christ at the center of every story. From the very beginning, every page includes some connection to the person and work of Jesus Christ. The pictures are fabulous, and the story is told at a level that even our four-year-old Jack can understand. He gets it: Who is the Rescuer? Jesus! What is God’s Secret Rescue Plan? The gospel! He is learning about the Never Stopping, Never Giving Up, Unbreaking, Always and Forever Love. Even his toddling intellect is beginning to grasp that the whole story of the Bible points to a Savior. And we’re only at Jacob and Rachel! I highly recommend this Bible as the primary reading Bible for toddlers and younger school-aged kids.
