In my preschool teaching days, I would search high and low for a book that grabbed my student’s attention and taught them something. If that same book stirred them to then go create or explore for themselves after we had closed the cover, well it quickly became a classroom staple.
Lisa Hendey, in her usual deft, engaging, and humble writing, draws the reader (young and old) into many wonderful biblical history stories while weaving in the call to tell your own. A classic in the marking. This book is simply brilliant.
This is a picture book for all ages, and one my family will read, again and again. I can see us using it to recall the great Christian history we are part of, while chronologically our own story.
