Item description for The Story Of Ruth by Maxine Rose Schur & Gwen Connelly...

Kar Ben Publishing Publication Grade 2-4-This retelling of the complicated Bible story begins with Elimelech and Naomi's journey to Moab due to the famine in Judah and continues with the marriage of Kilion and Mahlon to Moabite women. After the death of her husband and both of her sons, Naomi returns to her homeland. Her daughter-in-law Ruth decides to join her: For wherever you go, I will go. Wherever you stay, I will stay. Your people shall be my people, and your god, my God. Ruth's courtship with Boaz is included along with the account of the birth of their son Obed, grandfather of David, the first king of Israel. The color illustrations are flat and unappealing and the text is dense, weighted down by all of the minor details. The author's note explaining the connection between the Book of Ruth and the Jewish holiday of Shavuot is interesting and informative. However, Jean Marzollo's Ruth and Naomi (Little, Brown, 2005) is a more attractive and child-friendly version of the story.

Reviews - What do customers think about The Story Of Ruth?

A children's picture book about the Biblical character, Ruth  Feb 15, 2010
The Story of Ruth, retold by Maxine Rose Schur, details the story of Ruth from the Biblical book of that name. The story is true to the scripture, starting with the famine that struck Judah, forcing Naomi and her family, including her daughter-in-law Ruth, to leave their homeland, and ending with Naomi and Ruth back in Judah where Ruth marries Boaz.

At the end of the book is an explanation about why the Jewish people read the story of Ruth during their celebration of Shavuot.

The watercolor illustrations, by Gwen Connelly, are very detailed and expressive.

What I Like: The illustrations are my favorite part. Their detail and vibrant color enhance the text.

What I Dislike: Nothing.

Overall Rating: Excellent.

Age Appeal: 4-8
