This time, I am dipping in to the new Barnabas Children’s Catalogue. Barnabas is part of the Bible Reading Fellowship.

The Barnabas Children’s Bible.

Aimed at 8 to 12 year olds, this is the ideal transition from a book of Bible stories to the text and layout of an adult Bible. It is not a direct translation of the whole Bible but the stories chosen retell the main events of the Bible with a continuous thread. This book has over 200 illustrations and an encyclopaedia section at the back to help bring the world of the Bible to life.
Ref. 978 1 84101 526 2 £12.99.

Little Elephant (A story about being loved) by Catherine House and Olwyn Whelan.
