“With clever illustrations, and even wittier words, to the rescue is a book adults will love reading to the children in their lives. What a great way to peek a child’s interest in stories of the Bible which highlight God as rescuer and deliver… I happily recommend this unique publication to every parent who wishes to instill in his child and a lower for the word of God!”
