"Jesus had finished teaching the crowd, and now he had something to teach his friends - but they didn’t know it yet...” Alison Mitchell has cleverly retold Mark’s account of Jesus calming the storm, focusing readers on what Jesus had taught his own disciples - he does what only God can do. "The Storm That Stopped" is beautifully illustrated and is a great addition to every child’s must-have list.

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.

The Storm That Stopped

Catherine Brooks, August 18th 2015

They (The Good Book Co.) aim to make an excellent picture book, and they’ve certainly achieved that. It’s quite long, building up the suspense, so contains page after page of illustrations which really capture a child’s imagination. It begins by explaining the context of the miracle, and as far as I can see it sticks closely to the Bible text. It also comes to a spot-on conclusion at the end: the whole reason Jesus did the miracle.... continue reading

Opening up the beautiful hardback reveals fantastic illustrations and beautiful storytelling. The story of Jesus calming the storm is used to show not only a little about Jesus’ life and how much he cared for his friends, but also that he was, and indeed is, God. … One of the most creative children’s books we’ve seen.... continue reading

“A Must Have For Families”

I highly recommend this book and all in the series. Through amazing visuals, the true story of Jesus shines forth. Children will be captivated but equally, adults will find surprising reminders of the awesomeness of Jesus.


“Beautifully written”

This is a captivating re-telling of the story of Jesus calming the storm, taken from Mark Chapter 4. Beautifully illustrated and imaginatively written, it creates a sense of anticipation as the story evolves.It sums up the mood of the disciples in the boat, as the storm escalates and fear rises to panic. It then conveys the sense of amazement as Jesus stills the storm with a word. It guides the young reader through a process of realisation of who Jesus really is.



Absolutely delighted with the quality of these books. They are beautifully written and illustrated. Age range said 3-6 but honestly wouldn’t be surprised to see 7-8 year olds still enjoying them. As always The Good Book Company were very prompt in delivering and everything arrived in perfect condition.
