Full Product Description

  • Want the Bible to leap off the page?
  • This Storyteller Bible is made to be read out loud to kids
  • Hearing these stories brings them to live, and will remain in the imagination
Simple, fun and colourful The Lion Storyteller Bible portrays Christ and his teachings in a fast moving, engaging style that appeals to children aged 4 to 8.

The illustrations will fire children's imaginations immediately with the message that God intends for us all. Storyteller Bob Hartman uses a simple language that's excellent for reading aloud to children without ever talking down to his audience. That makes it deal for anyone involved in teaching God's messages to school age children,

Brightly illustrated in colour and spread across two pages, the stories and pictures are easy to share. The Lion Storyteller Bible is sure to be a favourite for many years with Sunday school teachers and families alike.

This lovely book is well written with the stories from the Bible told in a form and length that make great spring-boards for talking with children about the themes and message of the Bible in an age appropriate language.

This further re-issue The Lion Storyteller Bible's highly acclaimed 2008 version integrates more than 20 new Bible story re-tellings with the 50 tried and tested stories of the 2005 original.

It also includes a useful appendix of Bob Hartman's hints and tips for storytelling, as well as 4 CDs on which the stories are narrated by voice-over specialist, David Holt. Newly commissioned illustrations throughout will capture as much warmth and appeal as those in the first (2005) edition.

The Lion Storyteller Bible broke new ground in its presentation - both verbal and visual - of Bible stories. It has been immensely popular, with sales in the UK exceeding 130,000 copies and editions printed in more than 11 languages. Since The Lion Storyteller Bible was first published Bob Hartman has established an international reputation as a storyteller and writer.
