Share the glory of the cross with kids by reading this storybook together, and then using the 15-door Easter calendar and included family devotional in the run-up to Easter.

The beautiful hardback Bible storybook for 3+ year olds takes children on a journey from the Garden of Eden to God’s perfect new creation. It is a gospel presentation that focuses on the significance of the temple curtain. God said “because of your sin you can’t come in”, but the moment the curtain tore in two, everything changed. Children will learn why Jesus died and rose again and why that’s the best news ever.

The Easter calendar is an innovative resource for counting down to Easter Sunday. It comes with two weeks of Easter family devotions based on the passages used in The Garden, The Curtain and The Cross Storybook. A useful homeschool resource.

Faithful, theologically rich children's books are a rare treat in Christian publishing. Laferton has provided us one of the best little treatments of biblical theology available for parents to read to their children. The Garden, the Curtain, and the Cross not only teaches children stories in the Bible but the story of the Bible - one that culminates in the atoning work of Jesus Christ who gives broken sinners access to God. This book is a tremendous resource for parents and children who want to better understand the grand storyline of Scripture.

My grandchildren loved this book—and so did I. Both the pictures and the words have made the Bible's story of redemption clear and beautiful. This is a book that invites us in.

I am so excited about this book! It is colorful, engaging, and creative, and that's just the icing on the cake! Our children receive invitations to participate in many different stories—stories of who they are, their purpose, and what God is like. The Garden, the Curtain and the Cross is a brilliant re-telling of the one story that rules all other stories. I cannot commend this book highly enough. Read it to your children, give it to your neighbours, and talk about what it means to live in light of the fact that the curtain has been torn.

I think Carl Laferton has done an exceptional job of simplifying an essential truth which could easily come across as very complicated … He makes articulating doctrine seem like child’s play.... continue reading

I love these books and read them often in the classroom, at church, and at home. The free downloadable content is so wonderful and easy to use! Thank you for making this available!


“Engaging Bible Truth”

(Review written for 'The Garden, the Curtain and the Cross Storybook')

Love this book for its accurate scripture teaching. Grandkids love it for the artistry and story telling! It’s a win win!


“Excellent Books”

(Review written for 'The Garden, the Curtain and the Cross Storybook')

I bought all 14 of The Tales That are True for my great grand children. They love them so much. Their parents read one book every night. Their bed time is twice as long now because they ask so many questions about the stories.


“Terrific collect, of course we want more!”

(Review written for 'The Garden, the Curtain and the Cross Storybook')

This series of books is scriptural accurate & visually stunning! It is grabbing the attention of more than the 3-5 age group and is a favorite when children are selecting their own books to read and re-read. I gave a dozen out as Christmas gifts….. the notes and calls I received for more books was heartfelt and surprising! Huge THANKS to Alistair Begg’s Ministry: “Truth for Life” and to the Good Book Co. for bringing these fantastic books to print!!


“Excellent book, very engaging for children. Also purchased the the accompanying activity book.”

(Review written for 'The Garden, the Curtain and the Cross Storybook')

I would recommend this book to parents and grandparents for excellent reading. The activity book was also a plus to accompany the book.



(Review written for 'The Garden, the Curtain and the Cross Storybook')

I loved this resource to use at church on Easter. We were able to read the book for the kids but also display the images on the screen for the rest of the congregation



(Review written for 'The Garden, the Curtain and the Cross Storybook')

We used the book to tell the story and the slides on the big screen. While the story is told in childrens' story style, the impact on the adult part of the audience was huge. It was loved by everyone, and having the pictures on screen just made the impact irresistible.



(Review written for 'The Garden, the Curtain and the Cross Storybook')

Excellent quality, great colour and and solid teaching.


“The Gospel in All Scripture”

(Review written for 'The Garden, the Curtain and the Cross Storybook')

We absolutely love the Truth that Tells the Truth series, but this book is our favorite. We go back to it time and time again. It gives my kids a complete view of scripture as being one big story, rather than a bunch of unrelated individual stories. I love that through this book, my kids can grasp the Gospel and see that it has always been God's plan for salvation.


“Love these books”

(Review written for 'The Garden, the Curtain and the Cross Storybook')

Our family now has four of these books, and we will be buying more. They are biblically sound and have beautiful pictures that keep our three kids’ attention. It is a valuable resource to be able to start teaching truth as soon as they are able to sit and listen to books. So happy we received one as a gift so we could find more.
