What a great book for kids (and for the adults who read it to kids)! Alison has captured the journey of the anxious father, desperate to find Jesus for his dying son. The story turns on the words of Jesus, "GO your son will live!” Alison’s use of repetition in her story and Catalina’s beautiful illustrations work together to capture the heart of this story from John 4.

Wonderfully narrated and beautifully illustrated, The One O'clock Miracle is a compelling retelling of a famous Bible story of faith, grace and big, powerful words.

Bob Hartman

Storyteller and author of The Lion Storyteller Bible

I have this theory that people are more open to truth when they are smiling than when they are frowning. And Catalina Echeverri’s illustrations for Tales that Tell the Truth just make me smile! They are bright and winsome and shot through with humour. Combined with texts that faithfully retell both individual Bible stories and God’s Big Story, they make for a winning series of picture books.

The One O'Clock Miracle

Claire, April 28th 2015

One of the perks of writing a blog, is that occasionally you land a little opportunity to review an absolute gem of a book.

This was one of those times.

Of all the books we've ever reviewed, I think this is one of my favourites.... continue reading

The book is simple, beautifully illustrated and very engaging, all the ingredients you want in a children’s book.... continue reading

“Excellent book!”

I try and keep a copy of each of the books in this series, but since I work in children’s ministry frequently give them away to kids and parents! Excellent books to help kids engage with the true stories of the Bible, lovely and fun illustrations that don’t go too crazy with artistic liberty, and always think of this particular story in the Bible now as the one o’clock miracle.


“One of our all time favourites”

We collect the books in this series and this is one of our all time favourites! Even our 12 and 10 year old sit to join our 7 and 3 year old, listening to me read aloud. We bought the full size images too, so we could share our screen during a conference call and tell the story to our godchildren. We see this set of books as a tremendous investment in our children's understanding of who Jesus is what he came to do... and we won't stop collecting till they stop being written, no matter how big the children get!


“What a breath of fresh air! I am SO thankful to have discovered these books!!”

I stumbled across The Friend Who Forgives at my local bookstore yesterday & was absolutely THRILLED to discover it! I bought it, went home & looked up the illustrator, & after looking through them online, ordered 5 more of her books, including this one. I have been telling my friends & family about them & bought some as gifts as well. Why? Because I have never seen kids books that so clearly, creatively, & Biblically tell bible stories, while also accurately teaching the message of the story! (& I’ve seen lots!) The oldest of my 4 kids turned 4 this week & I am super thankful to have found these books in time to read over & over to my kids as they grow! THANK YOU!!!
