SPCK Group

Perfect for ten-minute reading times for independent readers and shared reading, these ten Bible stories are retold from the perspective of characters witnessing the events of a Bible story.

These engaging narratives include a servant girl's viewpoint of seeing Daniel in the lion's den, a 10-year old brick-maker retelling his sister about Nebuchadnezzar's gold statue and the bravery of the men in the fiery furnace, and a young lad telling his bemused friends about the talking donkey of his master, Balaam.

Stories featured come from both the Old and the New Testaments. Experience the exodus with Moses and the healing miracles of Jesus through the wonder, excitement, and emotions of a young person, just like you. What would you have noticed and felt if you had witnessed these events?
