Illustrations: Hand-drawn Bible time people and scenes match the style of Holy Moly video using the colors in a box of24 crayons. Watch for the color crescendo in each story.

Fun Fact: All poems were written by Melissa Cooper (a deacon in the United Methodist Church) and Mary C. Lindberg (a pastor in the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America).
Melissa reported this on her creative process: “When my creative process begins, it’s very messy, but there is a method to the madness. I tend to just start writing as much as I can and then edit, edit, edit, refine, and edit some more. I usually have to lock myself in a room in our house.”
Mary Lindberg responded to the invitation to write poems in this way:
I do love to rhyme. Hope you get this in time.
Rhymin’s right up my alley; put my YES on your tally.
