Having sold well over 250,000 copies, and inspired a wide-ranging series of publications including board books, big books and sticker books, My Very First Bible has become one of Lion Children's most popular Bibles. It is now available in a new mini edition. My Very First Bible includes twenty key stories, ten from the Old Testament and ten from the New. Each story is illustrated with characteristic paper collage illustrations - a style which has secured this Bible's popularity - and occupies 6 double page spreads, making the book easy to read in episodes to a very young child. The stories are told simply yet faithfully and with great respect for the original text. My Very First Prayers is also available in a matching mini edition.
