44 Stories Paint Vivid Picture for Children

Posted by Les Ellison  ·  Be the first to comment

In The Jesus Storybook Bible, Jago's rich illustrations of people and planets, eggs and elephants perfectly match Sally Lloyd Jones word craft and word play.

The Jesus Story Book Bible claims a wide age range for its readership; as wide as 4 to 10. And the truth is - as ever, you know your own child best. But as we’re on ages, I’d give this book to a 4 year old for the pictures and an eight year old for the text. By 10, I think most children are about ready for a full text Bible – though I’d challenge any 10 year old, already in possession of Sally Lloyd Jones and Jago’s masterpiece, to even think of parting with their copy.

Jago’s artwork – the full page illustrations, page corner motifs and behind-the-print ‘wallpaper’ is exquisite. His artistry not only has immediate impact, but stands up to intense scrutiny. Examine the overlaid patterns and tiny details in his richly coloured drawings and everything from people to planets and eggs to elephants gets the same attention their creator gave the original.

Sally Lloyd-Jones’ word-craft perfectly matches the depth of beauty in Jago’s illustrations. Her straightforward style has all the alliteration that children love, the simple repetition that helps them remember and word sounds that roll around the tongue. These are stories any grown-up will love to read out loud and any child will want to repeat, remember and then read for themselves. As bedtime stories or a base text for teaching the Bible to young children individually or as a group, The Jesus Storybook Bible is a combination of words, pictures, meaning and memorability that’s hard to beat.
