Melissa Cutrera has done a fine job in this much needed work for children. She has clearly yet cleverly presented the truth of the gospel story in rhyme in a way that will be both easily understood and memorized by her young readers and hearers.  What a blessing this will be to parents who are seeking biblically based works for their children that do not dilute the marvelous story of the gospel but instead present it with clarity.
Mary Mohler, Director, Seminary Wives Institute, SBTS
