    My daughter loves to have Bible stories read to her each night. We have a favourite Bible that we read from each night. While we love to read stories directly from the Bible they can sometimes be difficult to understand so we will often search out stories from the Bible that are geared more toward children.

    The Bible and Me Stories with a message to live by is a wonderful retelling of faith stories from the Bible. The book starts in Genesis, chapters 1 and 2, with the story of In the Beginning and ends in Revelation with The new Jerusalem. The book shares with your child the story of Gods good news and his unfailing love for each of us.

    The illustrator, Alida Massari, has done a beautiful job interpreting each story. Many of the stories in the Bible are scary and often the images that go with them are scarier. The illustrations she has created are beautiful and calming. She has made excellent choices in the way she has depicted each one, perfectly drawing each image so that they are suitable for children.

    The Bible and Me is written for children ages 5-8, but I believe that older children would like this book as well. The text is sometime difficult to read, but that only because they use the old Biblical names and terms like Nebuchadnezzar and covenant. The length of each story is perfect for young readers. Each story begins with a verse of scripture from the Good News Bible and ends with a prayer, psalm, or passage for reflection.

    The Bible and Me isnt a replacement for a Bible, but it is a beautiful retelling of many of the Old and New Testament stories of faith, hope and love.

    Disclosure: I received a complimentary copy of The Bible and Me from Kregel publishing in exchange for my review. All opinions are 100% my own.

    The artist, Alida Massari uses a style of art and coloration that is somewhat different from the typical children's story book, especially Bible story books. Colors tinged with rustic burnt sienna and blues of different hues and greens sprinkled throughout the browns along with the style that has an Italian flare or Russian iconic semblance bring a totally different and welcome sense to this book, The Bible and Me: Stories with a message to live by. Ms. Massari's bio is "Alida Massari is an award-winning artist who studied Illustration at the European Institute of Design in Rome. She finds inspiration from ancient art and architecture. She describes her work as modern with an ancient atmosphere."

    As I began to look into The Bible and Me I note the comprehensive scope of this children's book. It begins at the Bible's opening, Genesis 1, and concludes with the final story of The New Jerusalem from Revelation. At the end of the first story, Genesis, a song from Psalm 148 is in verse.... "Praise the Lord from heaven, all beings of the height! Praise him, holy angels and golden sun so bright."

    Each story is clearly a gentle rendering of Biblical text so a child can understand and yet is not couched in such simplistic phrasing that takes away from the meaning and majesty of God's Word. And each story concludes with a Psalm, a hymn, or some other beautifully appropriate reading.

    Bible selections are taken from or adapted from the Good News Bible. My Bible version of choice is the beloved King James and I would have preferred reading the selections in that version. I found this to be a beautiful book and the stories are sweetly told holding to an accurate telling of the Scriptures. This does not replace a Bible. It is a Bible story book with re-tellings of the most familiar stories from Scripture and beautifully illustrated by this unusual art form.

    Many will find this a book to have in their homes or to gift a child. Again Lion Hudson Children's books has produced a winner.

    The author's bio shows her talent and experience to be.... "Lois Rock has established an international reputation as a children's writer. Specializing in Bible stories, prayer books, and information books, her books have been translated into over 30 languages with sales approaching 4 million copies. She draws on her experience as a mother of three, and as a leader of church children's groups."

    I received a complimentary copy from Kregel Publishing to facilitate a review of my honest opinion. I was not compensated to review.

    This hard covered book will become a go to book at your home for your little ones, geared to the 5 to 8 year old, great for little hands to bring to you to read to them.

    As you turn the pages bring Gods word to them in a way they can understand, they eyes will be quickly drawn to the bright colors and illustrations on the pages. Bible stories retold in a way your little ones can understand. Starting with the Old Testament and forward to the New Testament, we travel from the Beginning, the great flood on to exile and return, then on to the child of Bethlehem, with 128 pages through to the new Jerusalem.

    What a great gift for your own little one, or another child that you want to share your faith, hope and love with, and then with a special time for reflection. The perfect book to cuddle up with your child and share the word of God with, sharing the stories his unfailing love, giving the right messages for them to live by.

    I received this book through Kregel Publishing and was not required to give a positive review.
