Favorite Parables from the Bible - I'm Giving One Away!

When my children were little - a long time ago, I bought a few books for them by Nick Butterworth & Mick Inkpen (the creator of Kipper the dog);  The Lost Sheep, The Precious Pearl, The Two Sons and The House on the Rock. These books became some of our favorites! I loved the simple way they told Jesus' parables with humor and a flare for storytelling! I loved the simple illustrations. There were excellent reasons these books were some of my family's favorites!

Favorite Parables from the Bible: Stories Jesus Told provides you eight wonderful Bible stories in one book. In addition to the four stories I mentioned, this book also includes The Ten Silver Coins, The Little Gate, The Good Stranger and The Rich Farmer. Children ages 4-7 are going to love this book - and so will grandmas! :-)

So, when Zonderkidz decided to re-release these books - combined in one book with four additional stories, well, I couldn't have been happier! I'm so thrilled a new generation of children will be able to enjoy these stories! These books release in January and they absolutely are "must-have" books for your home library.

And then, as if the re-release of Favorite Parables from the Bible wasn't enough wonderful news, Zonderkidz is also re-releasing a second collection of stories from Nick Butterworth & Mick Inkpen; Animal Tales from the Bible: Four Favorite Stories About Jesus! This book has The Fox's Tale (Jesus is Born), The Cat's Tale (Jesus at the Wedding), The Magpie's Tale (Jesus and Zacchaeus) and The Mouse's Tale (Jesus and the Storm)! (I'll be giving this book away on my other blog - About the Children's Department)

I'm absolutely thrilled to announce, not only did Zonderkidz send this book for me to review, but they are making another available for me to give away (USA only)! If you'd like to be in the drawing for Favorite Parables from the Bible - Stories Jesus Told,  which will be on January 15, 2013,  please comment below to let me know if you have followed on Google+, Google Friend Connect, followed by liking on facebook with the tab in the "Find us on Facebook" box ON THE BLOG (not just liking the post) and/or have followed grandma's cookie jar by email.

  1. Am not familiar with these books but they sound delightful and would be a great addition to our Sunday School library. I follow you on fb and email.
