Moses and the Very Special Basket was written by Sunny Griffin and was illustrated by Linda Welty. It was published in 1993 by Landoll and has 22 pages.
This book is a very simplified version of Moses’ life from birth to when the princess took him home. Each page begins with the phrase, “Did you know?” and then it goes on to finish the question. The book uses the questions as a method of telling the story of Moses. It works very well.
This story does an excellent job of showing children that if you do hard things, trust in God and be thankful; God will always be there for you. This also shows children if their parents trust in God that they should to and the trait can be passed from generation to generation.
The illustrations were realistically drawn, which children will enjoy. I did not like how almost everyone’s eyes were closed all the time. They all also looked so young.
The text of this story was large which makes it fun for beginning readers to read. There were not very many words on the page, which made it fun for my 2-year-old. The 4-year-old enjoyed the story as he enjoys the story of Moses.
