First published in 1982, Read Aloud Bible Stories, the first of four volumes written by Ella K. Lindvall and illustrated by Kent Puckett has now sold over 250,000 copies. Select Bible stories, including the stories of Zaccheus and Jesus calming the storm, are retold in clear, simple language children will enjoy and understand, without sacrificing any of the accuracy of the original biblical narrative. A ‘What Did You Learn?’ page at the end of each story encourages discussion between parents and their children as they learn to apply the teaching of God’s Word.
One of the more than 300 reviewers who have given Read Aloud Bible Stories a 5-star rating on Amazon wrote, “As a former Christian school librarian and mom, these books are winners with children! […] Though my own children are now 36 and 32, I am still buying these for baby gifts and reading them to my grandchildren!!”
