Joseph and the Jealous Brothers
Praise for the Young David series: A superb new series for primary-school children ... It stirred my own limp faith, let along my three-year-old's burgeoning spirituality. It was moving, too, to hear my child's voice so clearly in David's many phrases: "Dear God, why doesn't anyone want to play with me?", or in the eager question, "Will I get a crown?" after his anointing - so well does the author understand the modern child.
Praise for David and the Hairy Beast: Absolutely fantastic! Our boys love this book - highly recommended.
Praise for David and the Hairy Beast: Delightful tale for the very young ... this story of typical childhood fears is sensitively and humorously explored using lively, vivid text ... and beautiful illustrations.
What a beautiful book! Fiona Veitch Smith introduces us to the young Joseph with obvious affection and careful attention to Scripture. She weaves a wonderful moral tale which children will adore and want to come back to over and over again. Andy Catling’s illustrations complement the story perfectly, bringing the characters yet more alive. I especially loved all the antics of the cows on Jacob’s farm! The words and pictures both deserve many revisits, and this will soon become a firm favourite in any household with young children. A masterclass in how to bring a Bible story to life for youngsters. Am buying this book for my nephew (3) and my niece (5), who will love it! Very highly recommended!
