Joanna Rivard grew up in Nigeria and England and studied French at Oxford University. She has a PhD in French existentialism from the University of Michigan, but (given the choice) prefers writing children’s stories. She lives in Toronto with her husband and two children who refuse to share her accent.

The first thing that I noticed about this story Bible was the truth in the portrayal of the people. Let's be honest, the images that we see of our favorite Bible characters most often are very much historically inaccurate. Jesus, often shown as fairer skinned and blue eyed, is a prime example of that. Familiar as these images may be, it's likely not an accurate portrayal given the location of these stories. The darker skinned characters in the Tiny Truths Illustrated Bible are much more likely how these people actually looked in life. This is something that I appreciated for it's historical accuracy. I could see this having appeal for those who are of other ethnicity as well, but I cannot speak on that from experience of course.

Of course, my daughter didn't think about ANY of that, she just thought the illustrations were cute, colorful and caught her eye. The stories took many of those classic Bible stories we know and love and like any good Bible story book tells them in a way that kids can understand. I felt like it brought in enough details from the original stories to truly get a firm grasp on what the stories were all about without overly watering them down, but not so much that kids grew bored of them. They are broken into shorter stories, perfect for bedtime reading.

This truly is a great way to introduce even the smallest of children to the Bible in a way that they are sure to love! I know my family has!
