This little Bible retells 20 key stories, ten from the Old Testament and ten from the New. Each story occupies 6 double pages and is accompanied by bright paper-collage illustrations, making the book easy to read in episodes to a very young child. The stories are told simply yet faithfully and with great respect for the original text. First published in 2003 and translated into 15 languages, My Very First Bible is now available in a smaller gift format with luxurious padding, foil titling and gilt edges.
