This is the classic story of one man’s selflessness in helping his neighbour. The cherished parable starts when a man travelling towards Jericho is assaulted by thieves. He is left to bleed and suffer on the road as two ignorant locals walk past. But the good Samaritan demonstrates exactly how to love thy neighbour – the way that God wants us to.
The Good Samaritan is full of colour illustrations that accompany simple text for pre-school children. This attractive book is 16 pages long and includes double page spreads with a related prayer at the end of the story.
‘The vivid collage-style pictures, by Alex Ayliffe, beautifully complement Lois Rock’s spare, direct text. The stories are told with an exquisite simplicity which faithfully reflects the language of the Bible.’ – Times Educational Supplement about My Very First Bible.
Clear, strong pictures not only help children remember the stories, they help grown-ups voice the story for the youngest children (2 years up), with simple words and sentences for those early ‘read for myself years’ of 4 to 6.
