This is the first page of the first chapter of the book. As you can see, the pictures are stunning! They all reflect what you're reading about on that page and they really make the story come alive. Each chapter isn't too long; they were just the right length for me to read one chapter to my 8 year old son every night before bed. The story is very well written and it was very easy to see how the whole Bible is connected from the beginning to the end. My son enjoyed listening to the story every night and often commented on how the picture related to what I read. He says, "It's good. It has very good colors and pictures." I also liked that it has a built in ribbon bookmark so it made it easy to mark my place every night. The color of the bookmark also matched some of the pictures.
At the end of the book is "A Note To Parents." It talks about why he wrote the book, explains the imagery, and what he hopes we'll get from the story.
