Denmark’s Scandinavia Publishing House Brings Timeless Stories to US
Jørgen founded Scandinavia Publishing in 1973. Beginning with a monthly paper, Scandinavia eventually expanded into publishing books that have sold around the world, with titles translated in over 80 different languages. Jørgen’s vision is to bring the good news of the Gospel to kids everywhere, breaking the barriers of language and culture. “After spending a year in India with a non-government organization, I learned the value of using literature as an evangelism tool,” Jørgen says. “My hope for My First Handy Bible, as well as our other children’s books, is that children will be enticed by the life of Jesus to want to know more about Him.”
My First Handy Bible aims to communicate God’s character and His love to the youngest of children, ages one to three. Beautifully illustrated in bright full color, My First Handy Bible has a cheerful padded hardcover with 61 child-friendly hardback pages and a handle and clasp that make it easy for small hands to tote and manipulate. The timeless stories are retold in simple sentences by author and artist Cecilie Olesen, illustrated by author and illustrator Gustavo Mazali and designed by Ben Alex, a C. S. Lewis Gold Medal winner author and designer.
Combining the benefits of modern technology with traditional bookmaking, Scandinavia continues its commitment to meet the global need for superior literature that builds a strong foundation on the Word of God.
My First Handy Bible is available from www.amazon.com.
