Thirty stories from the Old and New Testaments are retold by Elisabeth Gilles-Sebaoun and lovingly illustrated by Charlotte Roederer. From the beginning ("In the beginning, there was only God.... There was no sky. There was no earth. There was no sun or moon. There were no people or animals, either."), through the Creation, the Garden of Eden, Noah's Ark, Moses, the birth of Jesus, the Last Supper, the Crucifixion, and the Resurrection, Gilles-Sebaoun recounts, simply and compellingly, the best-loved stories of the Bible. Each page is divided roughly in half, with Roederer's warm pictures above and the text below. A helpful summarizing phrase is conveniently located on the outer edge of each page: "A Companion for Adam," "The Israelites Become Slaves," "God Chooses David," "Jesus Found in the Temple," to help young readers find their place and identify the salient points of the stories. Here is a perfectly lovely introduction to the Bible, for reading aloud or reading alone. (Ages 4 to 8) --Emilie CoulterAbout the Author:
