Follow Me is an illustrated book of Bible stories for young children. These stories tell the eternal message of the Bible, highlighting the scarlet thread of God’s redemptive history. In the Old Testament, we are pointed to the Lord Jesus as we see how much we need Him and how God promised to save the world through Him. In the New Testament, we learn that Jesus came to earth and increasingly manifested His kingdom by His words and deeds—a kingdom that will never end.

"Follow Me" is a refreshingly simple and engaging rendering of Bible history. As is customary for Children's Bibles, the author follows the progression of redemption history. This Children's Bible is unique, however, in that each chapter ends with three or four questions that will assist parents in 1) reviewing the content of each chapter, 2) extract a key lesson from the chapter, and 3) help their young child(ren) apply the story to their own lives. "Follow Me" therefore offers a combination of great storytelling and personal application, and is ideally suited for conducting family worship with young children.
-Bartel Elshout, pastor of the Heritage Reformed Church in Hull, Iowa, and translator of The Christian's Reasonable Service, by Wilhelmus a Brakel
"Follow Me will etch the basic story line of the Bible on the minds of all. The gripping style and the colorful pictures will make many children run and reach for this volume to have the next story read to them."
-Gerald Bilkes, Professor of Theology at Puritan Reformed Theological Seminary.
