        Brian Wildsmith was raised in a small mining village in Yorkshire, England, where, he says, Everything was grey There wasn t any colour It was all up to my imagination I had to draw in my head He won a scholarship to the Slade School of Fine Art where he studied for three years For a while he taught music at the Royal Military School of Music, but then gave it up so that he could paint full time.He has deservedly earned a reputation as one of the greatest living children s illustrators In 1962, he published his first children s book, ABC, for which he was awarded the Kate Greenaway Medal, Britain s equivalent to the Caldecott Medal He was also a runner up for this medal for The Owl and the Woodpecker.Wildsmith has said I believe that beautiful picture books are vitally important in subconsciously forming a child s visual appreciation, which will bear fruit in later life In 1994, the Brian Wildsmith Art Museum was established in Izukogen, a town south of Tokyo, Japan Almost one and a half million people visited a traveling exhibition of his work in 2005 Eight hundred of his paintings are on loan to the museum.Brian is married, has four children, and currently lives in the south of France Source

    1. While this 32 page condensation of the story of Moses and the Exodus gleaned from the latter chapters of the book of Genesis and the entire book of Exodus in the Bible is rather dry and matter-of-fact, it serves as a good framework for award-winning children's book illustrator, Brian Wildsmith, to interpret key scenes and events from the biblical account with his distinctive pen and watercolor paintings.Let this colorful book serve as a visually appealing introduction for your children to the ri [...]


    2. This book does a decent, if lengthy, job of telling the Exodus story. However, due to the length and detail of the story and the busyness of the "Where's Waldo" style of illustration, I think this book is best targeted to kids between the ages of 6 to 10 years.My Favorite Picture:Um I still can't find Waldo. Probably the illustration of the Ten Commandments on the inside of the front and back covers, to be honest.


    3. Beautiful and detailed illustrations! This book was in the 4-8 year range on a list I am using, but the subject matter was a little above my 4 year old's level. I think we will revisit this book when she is more like 6-8 years old.


    4. Great complement to The Story of the World Vol 1 Chapter 14 The Israelites Leave Egypt. The illustrations in the book are superb. This book is not just another bible story because the pictures are culturally accurate.


    5. The simplified translation of the Ten Commandments on the endpapers is the only thing about this that could have been improved.



    6. Really concise, kid-friendly story of Moses from a baby to the exodus from Egypt and entry into Canaan. Wish the illustrations were better--but my kids liked it and got what was going on.



    7. Read as extension of ancient history studies (Story of the World.) Enjoyed the colorful take on the illustrations - the story is told very tamely by comparison!
