Rahab can be a difficult character to explain to a small child. I thought the authors did a great job. One of the first pages lists the Scripture referring to Rahab, so you can read that together with your kids. In my opinion, their explanation of Rahab’s lie was also well stated (a choice between helping God or helping evil men).

A short part in the beginning is fictionalized, but doesn’t interrupt the flow of Rahab’s story.
