Description

Master storyteller Jakob Streit retells vivid stories from the Old Testament, from the creation of the world, through the sons of Cain, to Noah's Ark. In addition to stories from Genesis, Streit includes stories about Michael and the Dragon, Edelweiss and the Mountain Flowers, Why Roses Have Thorns, and many more, integrated into the flow of Bible stories.

This book is perfect for use in Year 3 (age 9-10) in the Steiner-Waldorf curriculum, or as a reader in Year 4.

This is the first of Jakob Streit's three books of Bible stories, followed by Journey to the Promised Land, and We Will Build a Temple.
