My 13yo son had a dentist appointment in a town about 30 minutes from home. So, on the way there, I popped in the CD of THE BIGGEST STORY. It's a short 26-minute audio book, written and narrated by Kevin DeYoung, that was originally a children’s picture book. We were able to listen to the entire book on the way to the dentist and, as it came to an end, my son asked, "Is that it?" He had been listening, he was interested in it, and he wanted to hear more. I also enjoyed listening to it. So, even though the book is geared for ages 5-12, it can definitely keep the interest of ALL ages.
FYI: The book highlights key parts of the Bible, starting with Creation and ending with Christ. It is educational and informative, and would be a great book to share with anyone who is not familiar with the "stories" in the Bible, or in how they all come together to teach us about God's redemptive plan for mankind.
I have not seen the picture book, but I did watch the animated version of this book on DVD. The illustrations on the DVD come from the picture book, drawn by Don Clark. They are colorful and artistic, and are helpful for those who prefer using visuals to help them learn. Personally, I think I preferred the CD over the DVD, but it is nice to have the option of a DVD.
