Description

This is Jakob Streit's third collection of stories from the Bible, retold for children. It includes stories from the Old and New Testaments, and some from the Apocrypha.

A master storyteller, he brings the stories vividly to life, telling them in a way that will capture children's imaginations. They're perfect for Year 3 in the Steiner-Waldorf curriculum, but will also be of value into Year 4 and later.

Includes stories of Solomon, Elijah, Tobias, Isaiah, Jeremiah, Daniel, Nehemiah, Jonah, Heliodorus, Job, Judas Maccabeus and John the Baptist.

Jakob Streit's other books of Bible stories are And There Was Light, and Journey to the Promised Land.
