About the Book
This is a picture book recounting the gospel in one single story. It packs a ton of information into a forward moving text that keeps little ones focused and engaged. Recommended for ages 4-8.
The illustrations found in this book are agonizingly beautiful, while remaining age appropriate, as it unfolds the story of Jesus from the beginning of creation to the cross and resurrection. It captivated the attention of my two sons (ages 6 & 8) and opened up incredible ongoing dialogue after reading the book every night before bed. I found the Gospel presentation in this book to be simplistic and theologically sound. The artwork is engaging and at times mesmerizing.
Thank you, Ben Irwin and the team at David C. Cook for graciously providing this book to review. My boys absolutely love it! It’s a new favorite of ours.
