The Storm That Stopped
The Good Book Company
Third in the ‘Tales that Tell the Truth’ series comes The Storm that Stopped!
Based on the account of Jesus calming the storm from Mark chapter 4, this dramatic storybook will teach children about who Jesus really is, as they witness his power over nature.
It was no surprise to find The Storm that Stopped gripped my children. The narrative and the illustrations combine to help my children feel the disciples’ wildly changing emotions through the story. We felt the storm! My children love the visual scales measuring the impact of the storm. I love the final pages which excellently and simply help us understand that this story has a clear purpose in showing us who Jesus Christ is. Thank you!

The Storm that Stopped is a beautiful book. The illustrations are superb and the storytelling is engaging and delightful. I love all the different characters, and the expressions on their faces. The book tells the true story of Jesus stilling the storm. Wonderfully, it starts by setting the context, and explaining the purpose of the story: “Jesus had something to teach his friends”. The story is told faithfully and with imagination, climaxing with who Jesus really is. This book is a must for children, parents, grandparents, godparents and Sunday school teachers. And if you’re none of these, then still buy it! I love it.
