Second in the new Tales that Tell the Truth series comes The One O’clock Miracle.

Based on the healing of the official’s son in John chapter 4, this wonderful storybook will teach children about the instant power of the words of Jesus, and that they should trust Jesus because he is God’s Son.

My Impressions 

This is the second book I have read and reviewed by Catalina Echeverri and Alison Mitchell. In this particular book we find the story of the healing of the official’s son as told in John 4. I adore these books. In my opinion they are great for teaching young children biblical concepts in a way they can understand and relate to. Children receive so much of a story by looking at the pictures, so you need a strong illustrator that can bring the story to life in a simply, yet impactful way that Catalina does beautifully. 

My 8 year old loved the story and illustrations. He really enjoyed the book when he realized he knew the story from the bible and how it was going to end already! I appreciated how the text was multiple sizes, with the important words bolded and larger to draw attention to their significance in the story. 

I highly recommend this book for those seeking after Jesus.
