Finding kid-friendly stories that include biblical characters is a fabulous project! And I love that she manages to fit reading in for so much of the day! I really loved Sydney Taylor books, and I'm glad to hear of this award.

I quite agree with TadMack, and this blog tour has increased my awareness of this award and encouraged me to purchase many of the titles for my collection. This is a subject area of weakness for us (and many public libraries, I'd wager).

It's great to see Jacqueline Jules featured on your blog! Many thanks! Her Bible series is definitely a favorite here at Kar-Ben.

Congratulations to Jacqueline and Natascia!

I love the way Jacqueline answered this question, chronologically. Makes me think about all the extraneous reading I do during the day, beyond the actual sitting down with a good book.

I also got a kick out of how she subtly included info about her diet & exercise. She painted a larger context around the activity of reading, which is what a good writer does!

TadMack and Adrienne, yes, I agree. A great project! Jr. and I liked Sarah Laughs quite a bit, and plan to get the others in Jacqueline's series. Jr. likes the Old Testament stories. Adrienne, a good addition to a library, definitely. I'm going to recommend that my own library buy these books.

Jessica, thanks for stopping by. Jacqueline's books will nicely supplement the kiddo's Beginner Bible.

Heidi, thanks for coordinating the tour. I am so pleased to have been a part of it--and to discover new books in the process.

Susan, your "On the Books" series is awesome. And I also really like how Jacqueline answered your question!
