About-

The stories in the Bible continue to be told and retold, learned and loved by every generation and every age level. Here are some of the most popular and some that seldom get much attention, all told from a different perspective, for young readers to get to know these wonderful people of the Bible and learn how to tell their own stories about them.

Endorsements & Reviews-

“The delightful art and engaging stories are a perfect match. Echoing the title, both the stories and the vivid scenes are sure to inspire and of course make you smile. Two gifted ‘students of Scripture and scene’ collaborate on this wonderful work, breaking open the word for all of us. This would be a great addition to every classroom, library, and home!”

—Michael F. Baber, head of school, Villa Duchesne and Oak Hill School, St. Louis, Missouri



Bible Stories that Make Us Smile has all the ingredients for joyful reading—charming characters, refreshing narratives, and delightful illustrations. The key to the impact of these tales is the animation of one’s imagination. Thanks to Carolyn Osiek’s creative re-telling of stories which many of us might know, but with new characters that speak directly to the reader, we now hear the tales in engaging ways that both children and adults will enjoy.”

—Suzanne Cooke, RSCJ, head of the Conference of Sacred Heart Education



“Primary and middle school religious educators, rejoice! You have a significant number of new Bible stories for your youngsters—delightfully told, gloriously illustrated, theologically profound, and full of the humor that appeals to children. Written by a biblical scholar and illustrated by a master icon writer, it just doesn’t get any better than this! Teachers and librarians will enjoy them, too.”

—Sharon Karam, RSCJ, retreat director, Former Teacher, Duchesne Academy, Houston, Texas



“At last! A book of Bible stories that engages children but doesn’t oversimplify or compromise the theology of the narrative. This will fill a much-neglected spot in my collection.”

—Jeannie Steenberge, religion teacher, Villa Duchesne and Oak Hill School, St. Louis, Missouri
