The meaning of each story is brought out with a variety of both spot illustrations and larger pieces on every page. This also makes for a lively and engaging layout with plenty to encourage the young reader to turn the pages. Encyclopedic double-page features throughout the book bring to life the cultural context of the Bible and highlight the point and purpose of these ancient stories. Containing 51 stories, the text is simple and with just 150-200 words per double page spread and complete stories spans just 2-3 spreads each.
