I'm excited to tell you about a beautiful Bible story book illustrated by Michael Welply. Jehovah's Mighty Acts Bible Stories by Nathan J. Langerak is published by Reformed Free Publishing Association.
Always eager to find an engaging Bible story book for children, I sat down to read the book first. Immediately, i was so impressed with the lovely illustrations. I had to stop reading and flip through the pages to look at the pictures. There are 31 Bible stories starting with Creation and ending with Esther. The focus is on stories that display God's mighty acts like creating the world, appearing to Moses in a burning bush, the escape from Egypt, the day the sun stood still, and rescuing the Jewish people through Esther.
You see, this book is more than Bible stories, there is deep theological truth in each lesson. It is like mixing Scripture with theology class and making it easy to understand for children. I loved it!
In the chapter 2 "God's Friends" we meet Adam and Eve in the Garden. We learn lessons on marriage, friendship, ruling and took care of the animals. We learn that Adam and Eve ruled like a king and queen in the garden. They enjoyed a sweet friendship, a reflection of their friendship with the Lord.
Now to complete the review, it had to be child-tested. So, my daughter read the book to my grandson who liked it, but his mom felt that it was a little too old for him. That made sense because Rusty is four. The book is written for ages seven to ten. My daughter enjoyed the book, though and wants a copy for her homeschool library.
Now to find someone in the age group it's written for.
I had my friend Gracie read the book and she enjoyed it! She felt like the stories made more sense to her than ever before and she understood them better. She loved the book!
Reformed Free Publishing Association
Reformed Free Publishing Association produces books and materials for those Christians who lean more to a Calvinist bent in their theology. Books, Bible studies, biographies, devotionals, and audios are available for all ages. I really like their children's section which includes Bible storybooks, curriculum, and piano music.
I recommend that you check them out.

As you go through the journey of homeschooling, remember that books play an important role in your child's education--one of the most important roles!
Of all the books in your house, the Bible is the most important in training for life and godliness. Bible storybooks are great for younger children because they impart a love of the stories throughout Scripture of real people who encounter a Real God who loves them.
God bless you in your homeschooling adventure.
