Open the Book (OtB) is an exciting storytelling project where Bible stories are shared with children in a way that is fun, interactive and memorable. As invited guests in school, storytelling teams use the Open the Book programme to prepare and present a 10–15-minute scripted Bible story to a school assembly, involving the children as much as possible.
A Bible story well told has the power to spark the imagination, inspire exploration, give hope, create a smile, teach important lessons and connect generations.

The aim of Open the Book is to equip people to share Bible stories with children in an accessible and enjoyable way for those of all faiths and none, and to tell Bible stories in ways that enable children to engage imaginatively with the text.
