These are the bugs and the rats and the slugs that crawled on the crooks and the thieves and the thugs.
These are the Israelites thrown in a pit, panicking, scampering lickety-split

Genre: Picture Book
Target Audience: Kids 3-10
Subjects: Bible Stories
Summary: What will Paul and Silas do stuck in that frightening Phillipi Jail? What will Moses and the Israelites do when they face that sea with the Egyptians closing in behind them? Read these stories to find out!
Notes: “The house that Jack built” has become a style all it’s own, a style duplicated in lots of other books – including these two. These two books tell their story with the building upon repetition that makes it so easy for kids to learn and even memorize. It can help children develop sight word vocabulary. And it’s an entertaining twist on a Bible story. Each story uses fun, entertaining language to tell the Bible story. Then each book ends with where to find the story in the Bible and one verse from the story in the NLT. The picture are simple, building on each other just as the text does, helping to illustrate the ideas.
I can highly recommend each of these! They are a great addition to a child’s library!
