This classic collection will introduce children to six favorite, age-appropriate Old Testament Bible stories, including Noah and the ark, David and Goliath, and the story of Esther. Each story is told in fewer than 250 simple words that toddlers can understand and concludes with a one-sentence summary, a one-sentence prayer, and a short Bible verse. The bright artwork focuses on the land, the people, and the natural world of the Old Testament.

Joseph Cowman can't recall exactly when he fell in love with creating and building. He remembers scouring his surroundings as a child for metal scraps, wood, plastic tubing, bolts -- whatever he could find to assemble something useful or beautiful. But his real passion became building worlds and telling stories through his illustration. Joseph lives in Idaho with his wife and children.
