The story of God's people is often confusing to kids, because the events in the Bible are not always sequential. Now kids can discover not only what happened, but when it happened, and what else was happening at the same time in this collection of 60 Bible stories and events retold in chronological order for children ages 8 to 12. This helpful resource includes sidebars and inserts of important and/or fun historical events that parallel the Bible stories in time. A full-color illustrated Time Line helps kids keep track of what else was going on in the course of history.
