Reviews - What do customers think about Whitney Sews Joseph's Many-Colored Coat: And Learns a Lesson About Jealousy (Emerald Bible Collection)?
The most charming children's book since A WRINKLE IN TIME Sep 27, 1999
How imaginative, a little girl goes back in time to be a part of a great Bible story! I can't wait to read the other books in the series.
A series that empowers girls religiously while being fun Aug 22, 1999
This series has a wonderful idea at its heart: After beingfaced with a difficult problem, 10-year-old Whitney travels back intime to ancient Israel with the help of her grandmother's magical Bible. There she ends up playing a key part in the world's best-loved Bible stories. When Whitney returns to the present time, she finds she knows how to better handle her own problems. What makes this book and the other one I've read so far (Whitney Rides the Whale with Jonah) is that Whitney is very active in both time periods -- she deals with her problem in the present, and she makes a real contribution to solving the Biblical problem when she goes back in time. All that plus humor and a character kids will identify with. I can't wait for the rest of the series.
