Review: What a cute way to share a biblical story with young child.
This was so sweet, I love the way the author created these mice and Albert was able to tell a story of his ancestors that were there during this event in time that related to what they were up too.
The story is told in a fun and cute way, it’s so engaging and comes with beautiful art work showcasing the story. The biblical story is shortened but gets the beautiful message across.
I really enjoyed this story of Joe and his mother and of Elijah arriving at the word of God, the way it was told was really sweet and makes it easy for kids to understand. I also loved the first drawing of the little mice all covered in flour it was so precious.
