Once upon a time there lived a man and a woman. They were the happiest people on the planet.
True, they were the only people on the planet, but they were still terrifically happy.
Unfortunately, things didn’t stay happy and wonderful for long . . .
The Bible is full of exciting stories that fill children with awe and wonder. But kids need to know how all those classic stories connect to Scripture’s overarching message about God’s glorious plan to redeem his rebellious people.
In The Biggest Story, Kevin DeYoung—a best-selling author and father of six—leads kids and parents alike on an exciting journey through the Bible, connecting the dots from the garden of Eden to Christ's death on the cross to the new heaven and new earth.
With powerful illustrations by award-winning artist Don Clark, this imaginative retelling of the Bible’s core message—how the Snake Crusher brings us back to the garden—will draw children into the biblical story, teaching them that God's promises are even bigger and better than we think.
Ages 5-8 (read to me)

My take on this book:
What a wonderful way to introduce Bible stories to youngsters.  The Biggest Story by Kevin DeYoung is filled with brightly colored illustrations that will capture there imagination and draw them into the stories of the Bible. Written in a simplistic way that will allow youngsters to understand and connect with the stories, while also teaching them the message of the Bible.  Written for youngsters, this is actually a book that young and old will appreciate. Once I picked up this book I read it cover to cover because of the smoothly flowing story that unfolded inside. While I have read the Bible extensively I have to admit there is something about the illustrations and wording of this book that inspires and put a smile on my face as I read it. A great book for gift giving, and I could see using it in home study or even in Sunday school. What a wonderful way to capture your youngsters imagination and get them hooked on God's word. I only wish there would have been a book like this when I was growing up. 

A complimentary copy of this book was provided for review.
