WOW. Forget reading this review- just go read this book! It's a Juv nonfiction, so it won't take you long. I read it during a break at work, then brought it home to read again and to look more closely at the illustrations.

The Biggest Story connects all the main "stars" of the Bible and weaves them into a beautiful, bigger tapestry that points to Christ. Everyone from Adam to Noah to Abraham to David (and lots of people in between) are all connected, and all point to Christ. I love how DeYoung keeps making the comparison between the first Adam (Adam) and the second (Christ).

Even better: it's all done in the most strikingly beautiful children's book ever. Seriously, I could stare at these illustrations all day. There is so much detail in each simple illustration. That sounds like a mistype, but it's not. Each page has only 1-3 illustrations, but each one is intricately thought out. Even just the orientation of the image speaks volumes in some cases. The glossy pages make the bright jewel tones really pop out. I got my copy from the library, but am petitioning the hubby to buy a copy for the fam. ;)

One last thing: there's a couple tiny pockets of dry humor in the book. I LOVE DRY HUMOR. It's done in a subtle way, and very very very lightly, keeping the tone of this religious book serious enough.
