The Biggest Story

We all love great stories. This is evident as we see stories told in so many ways – movies, books and video clips posted on Facebook.

I’d like to point us to a children’s book that describes the greatest story of all time: The Biggest Story – How the Snake Crusher Brings Us Back to the Garden.

This book is beautifully illustrated and exceptionally written. The very first week we had it for sale in our Library, my youngest daughter saw it and immediately used her own money to purchase it.

“Once upon a time there lived a man and a woman. They were the happiest people on the planet. True, thy were the only people on the planet, but they were still terrifically happy.”

Unfortunately, things didn’t stay happy and wonderful for long…

Check out some of the beautiful illustrations:
