Based on Psalm 8, cosy up with your baby to share the warmth and comfort of being loved by God, reaffirming how wonderful they are to you and God. This is one of a series of delightful books by storyteller Bob Hartman based on biblical passages, which reference children and convey simple biblical truths that God loves and values them and they are wonderful and unique. Illustrated with clear, engaging, charming baby faces, which reflect the love, delight, warmth and emotion in the simple narratives. Research shows that babies are born being able to recognise faces, enabling them to connect quickly with their caregivers, so these books will be perfect for sharing with any 0-2 year olds. A perfect gift for newborn babies and first birthdays.

Bob Hartman is a performance storyteller par excellence. He has been entertaining audiences on both sides of the Atlantic for over 25 years with his books and performances, which bring together retellings of Bible stories and traditional tales from around the world with his own imaginative stories. His books are full of humour and insight, whilst his storytelling sessions are exciting, engaging, dynamic – and above all, interactive! He is well known for his hugely popular The Lion Storyteller collection, the Telling the Bible series, and the highly acclaimed picture books: The Wolf Who Cried BoyDinner in the Lions' Den and The Three Billy Goats' Stuff.

Ruth often describes her job as “drawing baby toes." Ruth graduated from Birmingham City University in 1996 with a First-Class degree in Visual Communication: Illustration and had such a lovely time she stayed on to do a Master’s degree. In 2018, Ruth was nominated for the Kate Greenaway Medal for Illustration. Actively involved with her church, Ruth helps to present a monthly service called “Everybody Sunday,” which creatively presents a biblical theme to an all-age congregation. You’ll find Ruth drawing and drinking tea at home in North Staffordshire, where she lives with her husband, two noisy teenage children and a sleepy cat called Orlando.
