Book blurb:

Join Ned as he draws—and learns—his way through the Bible!

Combining International Children’s Bible® text with funny illustrations, this Bible storybook brings to life the most popular Bible stories with a humorous but respectful twist. Our narrator Ned will guide late elementary and middle-grade kids through the Bible—keeping them smiling the entire time. Even reluctant readers will engage with the Bible stories and come away with newfound Bible knowledge and clarity.

These funny sketches will grab kids’ attention—and keep it—as they see their favorite Bible stories relate to their lives in a whole new way!

 I received a complimentary copy of this book from NetGalley for the purpose of review. The review is my honest opinion and I was not paid for this service.   

Totally Awesome, Super-Cool Bible Stories as drawn by Nerdy Ned is a whimsical retelling of various Bible Stories as seen through the eyes of a child. The stories are easy to read and understand with cute drawings (done by a child) accompanying each story. The author did an awesome job grabbing the reader's attention and keeping it. You can actually picture Nerdy Ned standing before you and telling you the story. The stories are well written and very descriptive.The author did a wonderful job bringing the characters to life while keeping the facts behind the Bible stories present in the stories.  The author was very creative in writing an unique story to entice not only children, but those new to the Bible, to spark an interest in reading God's word. 

I recommend this book for anyone who has children or grandchildren as this is an excellent way to entice them to want to learn more about God. I also recommend this book for someone who is new to the faith as an introduction to the Bible. While this book is catered towards young children, it will also be enjoyed by adults and teens.

I give this book 4 stars out of a total of 5 stars.
