Paul Writes (a Letter) Reviews
Chris Raschka's art is not my favorite style. I have enjoyed his Caldecott-winning picture books and used them in my library story times. However, his illustrations, while true to his style, are perfect for this pared down re-creation of Paul's message to the early Christians. So effective.

A very cool book about the letters paul wrote in the bible! A fun read!
Raschka paraphrases the letters of Paul with jaunty script and in easy to understand phrases for anyone (references included). Paul's letters never felt more like letters.
These can be some of the more boring passages for children, but they've been brought to life in this book. I'm going to be sure to use it in my GNC class that is going through Philippians with Phil Vischer.
Raschka introduces Paul and depicts him writing his various letters that appear in the Bible. Raschka picks a few verses from each and rephrases them in his own words.
A great intro to Paul and his epistles for kids. I really appreciate that Raschka included the references he paraphrases at the bottom of each page. I also found it interesting that of all the things he could include, he chose to include one or two verses that are good advice for anyone (and that kids can understand) and then perso ...more
