The Jesus Storybook Bible.

    No, the Bible isn’t a book of rules, or a book of heroes. The Bible is most of all a Story. It’s an adventure story about a young Hero who comes from a far country to win back his lost treasure. It’s a love story about a brave Prince who leaves his palace, his throne—everything—to rescue the one he loves. It’s like the most wonderful of fairy tales that has come true in real life.
- Sally Lloyd-Jones, The Jesus Storybook Bible. 

Our kids were graciously gifted this Bible a few weeks ago by our friend Joshua. It's beautifully written, bringing all Bible stories to your kids in a way they'll understand without skimping on the truth. The illustrations are darling. I can't rave enough about it. If you're curious at all, here's the website:

I have to share this with you today as I am studying Mark 10:13-16.
In those three short verses Jesus gives children equality, importance & love. All three of which they did not always  have in the ancient world (and now).

I looooooove this book! Purchased it for myself about four years ago and can't wait to have children to share it with.
