Faithful, theologically rich children's books are a rare treat in Christian publishing. Laferton has provided us one of the best little treatments of biblical theology available for parents to read to their children. The Garden, the Curtain, and the Cross not only teaches children stories in the Bible but the story of the Bible - one that culminates in the atoning work of Jesus Christ who gives broken sinners access to God. This book is a tremendous resource for parents and children who want to better understand the grand storyline of Scripture.

I am so excited about this book! It is colorful, engaging, and creative, and that's just the icing on the cake! Our children receive invitations to participate in many different stories—stories of who they are, their purpose, and what God is like. The Garden, the Curtain and the Cross is a brilliant re-telling of the one story that rules all other stories. I cannot commend this book highly enough. Read it to your children, give it to your neighbours, and talk about what it means to live in light of the fact that the curtain has been torn.

Michael Reeves

This is quite superb. Beautifully written and illustrated, this tells the story of the gospel so captivatingly that little ones will want to read it again and again. I’m sure it will win many young lives to Christ.

"Stunning artwork"

Victoria, GodVenture, February 29th 2016

It’s both a fresh way of telling the Easter story as well as good way to share the meaning of the cross.... continue reading


Megan, Redeemed Reader, October 3rd 2016

This remarkable picture book beautifully depicts the creation-fall-redemption story in a way that is fresh if you already know it, and clear if you don’t.... continue reading


Catherine Brookes, Mum in Zone One, February 2nd 2016

I think Carl Laferton has done an exceptional job of simplifying an essential truth which could easily come across as very complicated … He makes articulating doctrine seem like child’s play.... continue reading

(Review written for 'The Garden, the Curtain and the Cross')

This set is brilliant. Our kids (7 and 5) were excited to open each door on the corresponding calendar and hear the reading each night. The readings were perfectly aimed for kids, and flexible enough to make appropriate for your own family.

All the books in this series are loved and re read independently by our children (and one even taken into school to show their class).


“great resource”

This book is both beautiful, accessible and deep. To have FREE resources to broaden it's use is brilliant. Thankyou.


“Well written and beautifully illustrated book.”

(Review written for 'The Garden, the Curtain and the Cross')

I bought this book and the accompanying activity book to use for Easter lockdown Sunday school.
We read a few pages of the story each week and then completed the matching pages in the activity book.
I loved the way the book tells the Easter story from Genesis to Revelation which is so helpful when teaching children why Jesus had to die. The repeated rhyme was useful too and the seven year old I was teaching really enjoyed reading the whole book through on Easter Sunday.


“A powerful book.”

(Review written for 'The Garden, the Curtain and the Cross')

A beautifully illustrated and powerfully written book for children. A rarity these days. My children sit in awe until the end! Highly recommended.



(Review written for 'The Garden, the Curtain and the Cross')

This book is great! It takes us through the great sweep of redemptive history with Jesus at the centre, in all he has done, is doing and will do for us. My kids love it


“Lovely illustrations- thank you”

A series of lovely illustrations to help make Bible stories come alive.


“Fantastic Resource”

Great artwork. Creative way of explaining the Gospel to children.


“A great book to help children learn to read the Bible!”

(Review written for 'The Garden, the Curtain and the Cross')

When I was teaching my Sunday children's group on Exodus 24 and the holiness of God, one of the young boys who has read this book said 'because of our sin, we can't come in'. I can't think of a better recommendation for this really helpful Bible overview of God's good garden, our terrible sin and all Jesus did to invite us back in again. It helps children understand who God is and how kind he has been to us, and gives them tools to understand the Bible from a young age. Highly recommend.


“Wonderful biblical book”

(Review written for 'The Garden, the Curtain and the Cross')

A lovely book with beautiful illustrations which together tells biblical truths. I have the whole collection of these books and they are all wonderful. Great for children and adults for easy bed time reading!


“Really helpful and clear book”

We really enjoyed reading this excellent little book that contains so much theology! Thanks for clearly presenting Christ to us.
