“Wherever I go, I meet many children (and adults), who love getting involved in the telling of stories. Active participation is at the heart of this Act-Along Bible!”

Professional storyteller, performer and award-winning children’s author Bob Hartman has made interaction central to the retelling of these 29 Bible stories. The narrator and those taking part act out roles in the stories with movement, sounds and actions. Imaginations will come alive as they pretend that they are involved in the story. Become Noah’s sons helping their father build the ark, Hebrew families recalling the events of the Exodus, soldiers in Gideon’s army, shepherds on the hillside around Bethlehem, fishermen on Sea of Galilee, and donkeys that ride Jesus into Jerusalem. 

The interactive narrative will keep children fully involved in the storytelling, while having plenty of fun, humour, and creativity to help become familiar and recall special Bible moments. A memorable and engaging way to explore stories of the Old and New Testaments at home, in children’s groups, and in classrooms.
