Category Description for Get to Know Series:

This series accomplishes some key aims that excite me: making Biblical and biographical information accessible, engaging, and stimulating to children. Don't let the front covers fool you! The interior is chock full of maps (4 per book), Scripture references, full-color illustrations, and archeological photographs, making these great Bible reference tools for your elementary children. Learn about the life and times of each individual through such resources as a biographical timeline, a discussion of the Biblical account of the person's life, and special inset sections: Bible Hero, Eyewitness Account, Did you Know?; and Word Bank.

There is a tendency to discuss the lives of Biblical individuals in a vacuum or even as though they are stories rather than actual accounts. I love that this series brings them to "real life" and reveals what their lives were like. In the book Mary (the mother of Jesus), although we have no surviving "proof" of her existence beyond the Bible, we learn so much about her daily life and customs. Information is provided to help readers more deeply understand the Biblical account of her life. But since there are references to extra-biblical sources and photographs of archeological proof that confirm Biblical accounts, I think these books will encourage budding apologists in your family!
