    This is a beautiful illustrated story Bible. This means that it doesn’t have an exact word for word translation of Bible stories. Instead, stories are told in language that children will understand. And in the New Testament, if a story is found in multiple Gospels, multiple citations are found at the beginning. I love the length of the stories and the Wondering questions at the end of each story. These stories would be great to read to young children before bed. Examples of I wonder questions: “ This is a beautiful illustrated story Bible. This means that it doesn’t have an exact word for word translation of Bible stories.

    This is a beautifully written & illustrated Bible storybook for children. It is titled for the "I wonder" questions that come at the end of each story, inviting the child reader or hearer to imagine herself in the story & to imagine God's own response to the actions of human beings.

I love this approach. I also love it that Nellist chose to give significant space to the women & girls of the Bible. I love it that she lets us know about various humans' failings & mistakes, rather than making the characters heroes. God is the hero! And I love the epilogue, where she invites children to contemplate their own lives as part of God's story. There are a couple of things that would have made me love it even more. (1) The illustrations are very traditional in representing the clothing & environment of biblical times. However, the characters' hair is often auburn, brown or even sandy. The Bible's writings emerged from the ancient Near East, where most people's hair was dark brown or black. There are ongoing discussions to be had here, but I would have preferred to see darker hair since otherwise the representation is of the time/place. (2) I am very interested in Gospel interpretations for kids that center Jesus's message of good news for the poor & warnings for the rich. Mary's song would have been a great place to do this, and of course Jesus taught often on the topic, modeling challenges to those with power/wealth, tenderness & attentiveness toward those at the bottom of the social hierarchy. I don't find this theme explicitly expressed here. But the parent or teacher could easily add their own "I wonder" questions to help draw it out. Still, five stars because it's a lovely book, exuding a real spirit of wonder & hope.

    Since I am the author, I am clearly biased, but I'm giving my five-star review to Alessandra Fusi, the illustrator, for her gorgeous illustrations. The way she's depicted these Bible stories will cause children to wonder about our great God as much as my words do. And what about that cover? I can't take any credit for that, but it's absolutely gorgeous! If you're looking for a different kind of Bible for your children, I hope you might check this one out.

    This book is fabulous! The writing is excellent (the verbs are especially wonderful) and the illustrations are beautiful. Maybe the best part is the "I Wonder" at the end of each chapter... ponderings that are not just for children but for all ages, questions that we learn to lean into without knowing all the answers while trusting in a loving God to see us through. Every church should have this book in their library and every parent of faith should read this with their children. This book is fabulous!

    Love the beautiful imagery the the author paints with her words and the illustrator captures with her art. A beautiful addition to my families bookshelf that my 4 year old daughter eagerly flipped through the pages to “look for Jesus.” The “I wonder” section at the conclusion of each story is very helpful in getting my kids to think about what we just read. And the gender neutral God language sets this children’s Bible apart. Highly recommend.

    I am so excited about I Wonder by Glenys Nellist. The author tells stories from the Bible in such an engaging way for children. I love the I wonder questions she puts at the end of each story. The book is a perfect size and the illustrations are beautiful. I really appreciate the fact that God is gender neutral and the skin tones in the illustrations.

I mean, we've all heard the stories of David and Daniel, but how about Elijah or Nehemiah and Esau? Plus, this book reminds us of many of the amazing women of the Bible, including Miriam, Rahab, and even a nameless servant girl. The entire book is written in Nellist's signature blend of lyrical phrases that are completely accessible to children. (Note I did receive a digital advance review copy, BUT I've ordered a copy to use with my kids and look forward to it coming out next week!)

I love that Glenys did not skip over Jesus’s death but makes it clear it is not where the story ends. God continues to work through the faithful people of the early church And continues to work through each of us even today.

    Celebrate the Wonder of Scripture Subtitled “Exploring God’s Grand Story,” I WONDER covers 16 Old Testament stories and 14 New Testament stories. In simple yet profound words, Glenys Nellist tells each story in a biblical yet engaging way for children.

In simple yet profound words, Glenys Nellist tells each story in a biblical yet engaging way for children. For example, the well-known story about Noah in part says, “Every day, God’s heart grew more and more sad as the people on earth hurt each other. They chose hatred instead of love, and meanness instead of kindness. But God was watching someone special. His name was Noah. Noah was good and kind, and most of all, Noah loved God. One day, God decided that the only way to fix the earth was to start all over again. And Noah was just the man to help.” (Page 22-23) Each story ends with three simple “I Wonder” statements. For example, the story about Noah ends with “I Wonder…if God still makes new things. …if God loves seeing rainbows as much as I do. …how Noah’s wife felt about it all.” (Page 27) This section can be a great conversation starter with your child. The well-known stories take on a fresh perspective in I WONDER. For example, the story of Jesus and Peter walking on the water from Matthew 14:22-32 is told from the perspective of Peter. Or the empty tomb after Jesus’ resurrection is told from the perspective of Mary Magdalene (John 20:1-18). Each page of I WONDER is illustrated with vivid color and detailed illustrations from talented artist Alessandra Fusi. As Nellist and Fusi combined forces, they have created a rich reading experience for every parent and child. I hope I WONDER becomes a classic Bible story book which is read over and over. I loved the stories and highly recommend it. W. Terry Whalin is an editor and the author of more than 60 books including his latest 10 Publishing Myths, Insights Every Author Needs to Succeed .

    From the introduction to the epilogue, Glenys Nellist encourages her young readers to wonder about God's story. Specifically, how they are a part of God's grand story. This illustrated Bible is beautifully written, is poetic and personal, and makes the sometimes-stilted Biblical words and concepts easy to understand for children.

This illustrated Bible is beautifully written, is poetic and personal, and makes the sometimes-stilted Biblical words and concepts easy to understand for children. There is little theologizing in the story of Jesus' death, which is always important for me to check when I am reading children's Bibles. The story is presented simply and straightforward, and the wondering questions encourage exploration of the emotional landscape the reader might be experiencing while reading about Jesus' death. When possible, stories are told from women's perspectives, such as the woman who anoints Jesus' feet and Jesus' ancestor, Rahab. The art is engaging and vibrant, and the complexion of the people depicted is appropriate to the ancient middle East. This will be a beautiful children's Bible to share with kids who are ready to use their senses and their emotional intelligence as they explore where they are in God's grand story and in God's family.

I absolutely love the "I Wonder" questions at the end of each story! They are just perfect, thought-provoking, and had me really pondering them. Here are few examples: "I Wonder... if God goes with me wherever I go... how I might be part of God's story... if Jesus still needs disciples... how I could help poor people." I think children, families, students, and religious teachers, will be thrilled with this book, as they read it, and use it to learn, and teach about God, in a deep, and special way. Kids and adults will be encouraged by this book, to be more loving, become more grateful, and find the beauty in life!

The thought questions!! I love them! They're things that a child can easily understand and ponder, but the questions themselves are often very deep and can lead to some great discussions with your child, or even just guide them to do their own deep thinking. The questions can range from everything from 'I wonder what Gabriel looked like' to 'I wonder how Noah's wife felt about it all' to 'Does God still make promises?'. I love how the questions not only lead to deep thought, but also can help a child look at things from different perspectives. I absolutely adore this Bible and cannot recommend it enough; it'd definitely one I'll be buying as a baby shower gift.

All with words based on scripture and full color illustrations Adam and Eve seem more real and human just like us. Daniel was such a strong and wise man, is it any wonder why God used him? The book also brings important questions that we all have ventured to guess or wonder about. I Wonder is a really good teaching tool and really got my kiddo to thinking about what he has read.

    Glenys weaves together stories from the Old and New Testaments to share God’s story of love and forgiveness with children in an age-appropriate way. Each story ends with three open-ended “I wonder” statements that are likely to spark some great spiritual conversations. The artwork is beautiful and while the book is not as thorough as some story Bibles, the heart of the gospel is made clear. This book would be great to use for family devotions. Highly recommend!
