The Storm That Stopped
Mitchell, Alison; Echeverri, Catalina
“"Jesus had finished teaching the crowd, and now he had something to teach his friends - but they didnt know it yet... Alison Mitchell has cleverly retold Marks account of Jesus calming the storm, focusing readers on what Jesus had taught his own disciples - he does what only God can do. "The Storm That Stopped" is beautifully illustrated and is a great addition to every childs must-have list.”See All

“We all absolutely love "The Storm that Stopped"! We've taken it with us everywhere, recommending it with enthusiasm! The combination of well-written text and engaging illustrations keeps my children gripped. What I really love about this series is that the books justifiably deserve a place among the best of their picture books. It looks, feels and reads like a quality book. In my mind, that means they fill what was previously a glaring gap in the range of Bible story books for children. So, thank you!”See All

“This well-known story has enhanced impact due to the artwork of Catalina Echeverri. After pages of raging storm depicted with graphic terror (small boat, big sea), the reader turns the page to see what a word from Jesus will do. The last two pages help children to make all the right connections and answer the big question: Who is Jesus?”See All

“"The Storm that Stopped" is a beautiful book. The illustrations are superb and the storytelling is engaging and delightful. I love all the different characters, and the expressions on their faces. The book tells the true story of Jesus stilling the storm. Wonderfully, it starts by setting the context, and explaining the purpose of the story: "Jesus had something to teach his friends". The story is told faithfully and with imagination, climaxing with who Jesus really is. This book is a must for children, parents, grandparents, godparents and Sunday school teachers. And if you're none of these, then still buy it! I love it.”See All

“It was no surprise to find The Storm that Stopped gripped my children. The narrative and the illustrations combine to help my children feel the disciples wildly changing emotions through the story. We felt the storm! My children love the visual scales measuring the impact of the storm. I love the final pages which excellently and simply help us understand that this story has a clear purpose in showing us who Jesus Christ is. Thank you!”See All

Westminster Bookstore Note: This book contains cartoon or artistic images of Jesus. There are many people in our constituency who, in a sincere effort to honor the second commandment, refrain from the use of any kind of drawings or pictures of Jesus, even if not intended for a worship context. Out of respect for those who take this position, we have sought to add a note to books in our children’s category which have drawings or depictions of Jesus so that they can factor that into their buying decisions, as they would if they could inspect the books physically.
