Trees of the Book – A review
Kimberley Payne awakens children (and adults) to the immense knowledge that can be found in the Bible. In her book, Trees of the Book, Kimberley focusses on some of the trees found in Scripture. She tells short stories related to the “tree Scripture”; asks questions; gives a few interesting (and to me unknown) facts and gives various activities to review the information.
The artwork is delightful and colourful.
I found, even as an adult, that I learned much from this little book.
It would be perfect for homeschoolers; Christian Schools and Sunday Schools.
Bravo Kimberley for a great resource.

Thanks, Jan, for your wonderful book review and for featuring me on your blog!
You are most welcome. It is a great book and resource. I pray that God will bless it mightily.
It’s always great when a book for children has a value for adults as well. After all, who reads to them or teaches them?
Exactly Janet. Learning something is good for all of us.
