About the author: Kenneth N. Taylor is best known as the translator of The Living Bible and founder of Tyndale House Publishers, but his first renown was as a writer of children\'s books. Dr. Taylor and his wife Margaret raised 10 children, and his early books were written for use in the family\'s daily devotions. The manuscripts were ready for publication only when they passed the scrutiny of those ten critics. Dr. Taylor\'s books have been read to three generations around the world and have shaped the faith of many believers. All of his work pointed to his mission: to help all people understand the Word of God and experience its power at work in their lives. Dr. Taylor believed that it was important for the illustrations in his books to make the words come to life. Just as the words were easy for children to understand, so were the illustrations. He especially appreciated Richard and Frances Hook for their realistic, accurate portrayal of biblical scenes along with sweet pictures of children. Their illustrations, along with Dr. Taylor\'s stories, can easily form the basis for many lively family discussions about the Bible.
