Jesus Storybook Bible

I cannot say enough how much I love this Bible! We read it most evenings with the girls before bed, and I am continually amazed and blessed by the beautifully, profoundly written stories and the amazing, unique illustrations. The girls, too, look forward to Bible time. And they ask such thoughtful questions.
Tonight we read about Jesus praying in the garden before his crucifixion. They were completely stunned that Jesus was going to die. They had to keep looking ahead to the pictures of Jesus on the cross and then Jesus alive again.
They kept asking:
"Why Jesus have to die? Why He have so many oowies? Jesus came BACK again? Why He still have oowies on his hands?" Matt and I probably talked with them for 20 minutes about our sin and Christ's payment. It was really wonderful. So wonderful.
Have I mentioned how much I LOVE this Bible?

okay how funny, i JUST got this in the mail today from amazon! i saw someone else's copy awhile back and just loved it, and am so excited to start reading it with our little ones! (i too love the illustrations, which include darker-skinned people, which of course is appealing for our family.)
