About Me

My photo
Mysteries, polka dots, California Rolls, TJ Maxx, cozy blankets, rainy days and getting the first spoonful of peanut butter out of the jar make me smile. Spiders, rude people, cold fingers and toes, baby leashes, people that don't wrap their packages before going to the Post Office, poison ivy and Math (pretty much all of it) make me want to scream. My perfect day would be spent with my wonderful husband and sweet girls- watching movies in our jammies! Of course, having the movie theater to ourselves would be great, too. Please pass the popcorn and M&M's.:) I am saved by the grace of God. He is my constant companion and hears my every prayer. What a blessing! I'd love to hear from you!

The Book of Books

The Bible, the story of God's people, has been passed down through the generations. But how often does a combination of the complex or outdated language, the extensive genealogy lists, and the unfamiliar culture stand in the way of young readers' understanding of a truly great story?
In The Book of Books, Trevor Dennis uses his natural gift for storytelling to create a story everyone can understand and enjoy reading. Young readers will appreciate Dennis's honest and simple way of retelling the most famous Bible stories. Written in novel form, each chapter--from the story of creation in Genesis to the description of the Heavenly City found in Revelation--transitions smoothly into the next.

My Thoughts:

The Bible can be a bit intimidating to read, especially for children.  The Book of Books retells Bible stories in a very reader-friendly manner.  The words are entertaining and engaging without being overly simplified. Trevor Dennis makes children (and adults) want to read more!  My family and I really enjoyed The Book of Books particularly because we were learning more about the Bible in a fun way.  The Book of Books would be a wonderful addition to your home library!
