I am always on the lookout for Christian storybooks that I can share with my kids and my nieces/nephews. Recently, I was introduced to one that I can’t wait to tell you about. The Biggest Story is a Bible storybook that is full of incredible artwork and a seamless telling of the Bible.
I am thoroughly impressed with the way the author presents this overview of the Bible in a way that will capture the attention of children of all ages. The artwork will get their attention, and it will bring the stories to life from one page to the next.
The Biggest Story
About the Product
Once upon a time there lived a man and a woman. They were the happiest people on the planet.
True, they were the only people on the planet, but they were still terrifically happy.
Unfortunately, things didn’t stay happy and wonderful for long . . .
The Bible is full of exciting stories that fill children with awe and wonder. But kids need to know how all those classic stories connect to Scripture’s overarching message about God’s glorious plan to redeem his rebellious people.
In The Biggest Story, Kevin DeYoung—a best-selling author and father of six—leads kids and parents alike on an exciting journey through the Bible, connecting the dots from the garden of Eden to Christ’s death on the cross to the new heaven and new earth.
With powerful illustrations by award-winning artist Don Clark, this imaginative retelling of the Bible’s core message—how the Snake Crusher brings us back to the garden—will draw children into the biblical story, teaching them that God’s promises are even bigger and better than we think.

Not all children’s Bible story books are equal! And, The Biggest Story: How the Snake Crusher Brings Us Back to the Garden is proof of that! From the moment I opened the package, I was drawn into the book by the amazing artwork that adorned the entire book from cover to cover.
Beyond the images on each page, the story is the best part, of course. Kevin deYoung does a fantastic of walking children through the Bible in a way that flows like one big story. Most children’s Bibles and story books I’ve read to and with my children are pretty disjointed.
However, The Biggest Story flows from one story to the next pretty smoothly. Children are able to see that the stories in the Bible are actually connected. The actions of one person have consequences for the next generation. They can see how God is able to use regular, every day people to do His work.
This book is a work of art – from the words that he wrote to the artwork on each page. It’s a must-read for children and adults alike!
