Have you wanted to know the entire scriptures, not just the popular portions? Here is a book of poetry from the scriptures for you to begin your learning of the whole Word of God, every word of which is right and blessed.

With this book, as a child, you can study some of the portions of scripture that are often skipped over, in this easily accessible, easily memorized form. Then you will be encouraged into the scriptures themselves, and you will have this door into them in your memory from the pictures and the poems, so that your learning stays with you, and so that you do not forget the entire, and entirely beautiful, Word of God.
