100 Bible stories and 400 illustrations from The Children's King James New Testament (Harper & Row), and 100 more stories and 400 more illustrations were done for The Children's Old Testament (McGraw-Hill) Mrs. Palmer and Mr. Lee were hired to do these excellent stories and illustrations.
Stories were to be short and simple
No more than 500 words per story
No pictures purporting to be Jesus
A single line of Scripture below each illustration
Four illustrations for each story
Each illustration to cover a part of the story
(so the child can follow the story by relating to the illustrations)
Many unique Bible stories which have never been seen in a Bible story book
Originally, all this was done in lovely color. This paperback edition is in black and white (due to the cost of producing that many illustrations in color). You will find them fascinating, authentic, with no flights of fancy, no imaginative additions from the Author, strictly Biblical!
