Bible Stories for the 40 Days
This book contains a wonderfully told story from the Bible for each day of Lent. Parents and teachers can read this book with very young children; older children will make it their own. Stories from both the Old and New Testaments bring to life characters we all need to know, from Adam and Eve and Noah and his family to patriarchs, matriarchs, liberators, judges and prophets. Also included are often overlooked stories of heroic women. When a story is read each day, the characters take us through the forty days of Lent and toward the celebration of Easter each year. Children (and adults) will love these stories so much you'll want to keep this book out all year long.
