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
