Reading is a part of our household. There are books everywhere - under the beds, on the shelves, atop the counters, in the nightstand, on the floor, in the basket, and in the beds (yes, my kids sleep with a different book each night!). Each child has their favorite(s) but our favorite book to read together as a family is The Jesus Storybook Bible: Every Story Whispers His Name. In it, we read a different TRUE Bible story each night that always ends by coming full circle back to Jesus - the Rescuer for us all.
As a Christian and a parent, I am thrilled with this book. The gospel is told in every story and leaves the child with great hope and good news. I ALWAYS end up in tears as I read the last two to three sentences of each story because it reminds me of God's goodness towards me, an undeserving sinner. I pray my children see Jesus as they listen and read it, too. Oh, and I can't forget to brag on the illustrations by Jago. They are amazing!
Since it's release in the spring of 2007, only the book has existed. But, in October (that's next month!), the Jesus Storybook Bible Deluxe Edition is being released - which includes the complete book on audio CD read by award-winning British actor, David Suchet.
