A beautiful hardcover book that would make a nice special-occasion gift. (slipcover, gold page edges, ribbon bookmark)
Bible references given
Helpful extra information like word definitions in the margins, and pages on topics such as “Illness in the Time of Jesus,” “The Great Jewish Feasts,” and “The Religious Leaders” which give context to the stories.
Great job on the Catholic lesson in the loaves and fishes story.
Title: The Beautiful Story of the Bible

Recommended Ages: Readers
Very kid-friendly storytelling – short and easy to understand
The Last Supper story almost matches the words of consecration at Mass
Mary has a prominent role throughout the New Testament in this book
I love that it has Jesus saying to Peter, “You will be the shepherd of my flock.”

Red text on a few pages is a little harder to read
