Jesus Calling Bible Storybook was written by Sarah Young with Jean Fischer, illustrated by Carolina Farias and published by Thomas Nelson in 2012.

Sarah Young wants children to learn the stories of the Bible, but more importantly she wants them to listen in their hearts to what Jesus is saying about those stories. She asks readers to discover what Jesus is saying to them.  She offers insights into each story which come out in a faith-nurturing and child-like way.  She has a most refreshing way of explaining difficult concepts. From the first story of Genesis to the last in Revelation, Young gives a complete look into the Old and New Testaments. Some examples of chapter titles are: Adam and Eve’s Big Mistake; Jacob, a Man with Two Names; Mary Meets an Angel; and, He is Here.

The art work is colorful, uncomplicated and true to each story. Its warmth matches the loving tone of the writing. Written for 3- to 7-year-olds, Jesus Calling Bible Storybook is a must for family devotions. They will find a heartwarming look into God’s Word and His grand plan to send Jesus, His Son.
