Author Amy Ehrlich presents a retelling of the five books of the Torah in this children's adaptation. Far from simplifying the story, Ehrlich attempts to create a seamless narrative without adding or taking away from the original. Narrators Kate Udall and Francis J Spieler stay true to this goal. However, while their narrations are engaging and expertly paced, both choose gravity over the flourishes normally found in audiobooks for children. The two narrators alternate chapters, and each reads the biblical names and places flawlessly, allowing the listener to focus on the story itself. The only thing missing from this wonderful adaptation are the maps and illustrations by Daniel Nevins. E.N. © AudioFile 2013, Portland, Maine [Published: OCTOBER 2013]
