This boxed set combines a book of bible stories and a prayer book for children, making the ideal gift for a birthday, christening, or First Communion. A First Bible Story Book retells 13 specially selected stories from both the Old and New Testaments – from Noah’s Ark to The Last Supper. Mary Hoffman’s lively storytelling preserves all the mystery, wonder, excitement and adventure of the Bible. A First Book of Prayers has prayers to suit all occasions and themes, from prayers about friends and family to prayers about being happy or sad. Combining traditional prayers and psalms with specially written prayers, it is an inspirational book that the whole family can share and enjoy. Both books are aimed at young readers of 5-7 years, and feature the charming illustrations of Julie Downing. This delightful boxed-set is the perfect introduction to the Bible and to prayer and will be treasured for years to come.
