19 Bible stories teach kids all about the children in the Bible who followed God’s plan for their lives.

 The children of the Bible were ordinary children. Some of them were obedient and brave. Others were scared and lonely. But God had a special plan for each of them. God has a special plan for your children too.

Children of the Bible consists of 19 engaging stories written by Wendy Maartens that introduces children to the childhood of well-known Bible char­acters such as Joseph with his colorful coat, Moses in the basket, Samson with his long hair, and special Baby Jesus.

Children of the Bible concludes with leading questions that children can use to write their own story. This is a Bible storybook perfect to teach little hearts that anyone can be used by God to make a difference – no matter age or size!
