Newly inspired children's story from the Bible makes ideal Passover gift


"Meeting Moses," the first in a new series of children's picture books, is releasing just in time to delight children ages 5-8 for Passover. Author Robert Chasin and illustrator Matt Roussel are excited to team up for the Meeting Bible Heroes series, which introduces kids to important Bible characters from the Torah in an entertaining manner.

"I cannot think of anything more rewarding than inspiring children to look within, and to develop their own special relationship with God. My intention with 'Meeting Moses' has been to create a fun story for kids, while providing them with excellent role models, and positive life messages," said Chasin.

In "Meeting Moses," a boy named Max accidentally travels to ancient Egypt in his father's time machine. There, he meets a young Moses and the two quickly become friends. Together, they experience events from the book of Exodus, overcome obstacles, and learn to have faith in God. "Meeting Moses" is a great way to inspire kids to want to learn more about the Bible.

Heritage news editor Christine DeSouza found the story inviting, "taking the reader back in time" in an almost realistic way. Illustrator Roussel creates almost 3-D images in his artwork, which will hold a child's attention.

Rated as "Faith Based Friendly" for all ages by the Dove Foundation, "Meeting Moses" is an excellent teaching tool for parents, religious schools and for homeschooling; especially with free download materials from the publisher's website. Parents will also like that Max's friends who will be joining him on upcoming adventures, learn to deal with their own issues such as low self-esteem, fear and anger.

The printed hardcover picture book (40 pages) has been discounted for this holiday season at $14.99 (SRP $16.95). Group discounts are also available directly at meetingbibleheroes.com (currently U.S. Market only). You can purchase smaller quantities of the hardcover book and eBook on Amazon. Plans for the Meeting Bible Heroes series includes animation.

Chasin is a creative entrepreneur and business consultant with experience in advertising, marketing and promotions. Roussel is internationally recognized for his 3D illustrations. Roussel has worked with book publishers such as Scholastic, Macmillan, Nelson, Gallimard, and Hachette.
