I found these books accidentally and felt like I’d discovered a treasure I needed to share!
I gave a set of “Bible Stories for Girls” and “Bible Stories for Boys” to a young friend being baptized. She and her brother both have Biblical names, but neither her name nor her brother’s was mentioned in the books! (Abigail and Joshua) So clearly these books are not comprehensive. But what a treasure for girls and boys to get acquainted with important, world-changing women as well as men in the Bible.
