It was no surprise to find “The Storm that Stopped” gripped my children. The narrative and the illustrations combine to help my children feel the disciples’ wildly changing emotions through the story. We felt the storm! My children love the visual scales measuring the impact of the storm. I love the final pages which excellently and simply help us understand that this story has a clear purpose in showing us who Jesus Christ is. Thank you!
"The Storm that Stopped" is a beautiful book. The illustrations are superb and the storytelling is engaging and delightful. I love all the different characters, and the expressions on their faces. The book tells the true story of Jesus stilling the storm. Wonderfully, it starts by setting the context, and explaining the purpose of the story: "Jesus had something to teach his friends". The story is told faithfully and with imagination, climaxing with who Jesus really is. This book is a must for children, parents, grandparents, godparents and Sunday school teachers. And if you're none of these, then still buy it! I love it.
This well-known story has enhanced impact due to the artwork of Catalina Echeverri. After pages of raging storm depicted with graphic terror (small boat, big sea), the reader turns the page to see what a word from Jesus will do. The last two pages help children to make all the right connections and answer the big question: Who is Jesus?
They (The Good Book Co.) aim to make an excellent picture book, and they’ve certainly achieved that. It’s quite long, building up the suspense, so contains page after page of illustrations which really capture a child’s imagination. It begins by explaining the context of the miracle, and as far as I can see it sticks closely to the Bible text. It also comes to a spot-on conclusion at the end: the whole reason Jesus did the miracle.... continue reading
Opening up the beautiful hardback reveals fantastic illustrations and beautiful storytelling. The story of Jesus calming the storm is used to show not only a little about Jesus’ life and how much he cared for his friends, but also that he was, and indeed is, God. … One of the most creative children’s books we’ve seen.... continue reading
What a brilliant story! Excellent pictures and story telling with real biblical truths there needs to be more of these stories available!! Maybe even a whole bible!?
My wife bought this for our grandchildren age 6 and 4 and they love it. They enjoy the detail of the pictures as well as the story. It contains images of Jesus but they are so cartoonised that no-one could think it was an image of Christ. The story told gets across the main purpose of the story - the greatness of Christ. Good!
