"This book is a resource you'll want to keep handy and pore over with others. Gorgeous details and refreshing language will help you remember what is wild and holy about God's story. Each list honors an honest and messy faith, declaring God's keen interest and delight in our indignity and in the ordinary."

Rev. Meta Herrick Carlson, author of Ordinary Blessings and Speak It Plain

"If you want to help kids learn to love the Bible and all its wonderful weirdness, this is the book for you. On page after page, curious kids and caregivers alike will find themselves surprised, amazed, and delighted. Carla Barnhill, Marc Olson, and Kelsey Heaton have created a masterpiece."

Caryn Rivadeneira, author of the Helper Hounds series, Grit and Grace, and Gritty and Graceful

"This book of biblical lists is downright fun! I love that this is a romp rather than a more rigid kind of biblical exploration--much closer to the kind of adventure the Bible invites us to experience."

Dr. Diane Jacobson, deacon, professor emerita of Old Testament, Luther Seminary
