Reviews - What do customers think about Tomie dePaola's Book of Bible Stories?
A book to treasure May 17, 2008
Wtih dePaola's beautiful, iconic illustrations, the words of the New International Version of the Bible come alive. He has taken some of the most important stories (for instance, Noah and the ark, Adam and Eve, Moses, Jesus's birth and resurrection) in the Bible and made them appealing to children. DePaola's illustrations are never "cute", never cloying, but bright, crisp, and reverent.
Bible stories brought to life by illustrator May 5, 2000
By combining the text of the NIV Bible with illustrations by Tomie De Paola, this book vividly portrays the story of Christianity from creation through the crucifixion and resurrection to the coming of the Holy Spirit. Children of all ages will be drawn to these stories with their beautifully drawn illustrations. The color, simplicity and depth in the illustrations immediately connect the text to a mental image and make the stories come alive. This is a wonderful book to give to any child.
