Lois Rock is the author of over twenty books for children. This exploration of the wonderful variety of questions that children ask is drawn from her memories of when her own children were young.From School Library Journal:
Grades 2-6--A bright, appealing collection of 100 stories with full-color, stunning illustrations and borders on every page. Rock's introduction explains the diverse array of narratives (mysterious, joyous, perplexing, miraculous, sad) and describes the flow of stories, beginning with the Creation, through Abraham, to Jesus, and the fulfillment of the Old Testament prophesies. Balit, bringing a Middle Eastern background to her art, uses bold colors and ornamentation to add drama to each illustration. Her characters are powerful, angry, fearful, and brave. Quotations are taken from the New Revised Standard Version (NRSV), Good News translation, and the Jerusalem Bible. Readable and appealing, with good balance of tales (66 Old Testament stories, 34 New Testament), this is a fine collection for public libraries and Christian schools and homes.
