This colourful, chunky board book retells the Bible in 20 favourite episodes so that young children may begin to explore the Bible for themselves. The simple, short stories highlight key aspects of the Christian faith - love, obedience and trust - whilst Melanie Mitchell's bright and smiley characters exude cheerfulness and faith. The padded covers and rounded corners mean that this book is ideal for little hands and everyday play. The result is a very useable book which feels about the same size as a proper grown up Bible and that very little children can browse or their own or have read aloud to them.
