Laurie Lazzaro Knowlton’s first published work was a note passed to a boy in elementary school. You would have thought that this most embarrassing moment would have stopped her writing career. But instead, Laurie is the author of thirty five books and author/illustrator of two more. Laurie lives in rural Ohio with her husband and two daughters and loves writing surrounded by horses, cattle, dogs, cats, and five turkeys.
I am so impressed with Believe Storybook that Zonderkidz has published. This beautifully illustrated book brings the Old and New Testament together to explain to kids (and adults) just what and why Christians believe. Divided into 3 sections (Think, Act and Be Like Jesus) with a total of 30 chapters, this book explores the key beliefs of the Christian faith through questions, Bible stories and commentary. Each chapter begins with a a Key Question, such as Who is God? The narrative then includes an Old and New Testament story illustrating the idea. A Jump to Jesus transition between stories shows kids how the Bible fits together. The chapter ends with The Jesus Answer — a reiteration of the Key Question with Jesus as its focus. A Key Verse allows for Scripture memorization, an important part of knowing just what and why you believe.
I wish I had had Believe Storybook when my kids were younger — it is an informative and entertaining way to teach your kids about God. And in this world where Christian beliefs are under attack, parents need all the help they can get!
Audience: ages 4 and up.
