This is a wonderful book for children who are ages 5-12. (It is not inteded to be a book for toddlers to flip through on their own.) Non-readers can enjoy listening to a parent read to them and competent readers can enjoy reading on their own. The text is written in a story format and the illustrations are engaging. I am a 4h grade teacher at a Catholic elementary school and my students really it when we read from this book.
I purchased this book for my preschooler since it was advertised in the preschool section of scholastic book club. I thought it would be a nice picture book with with age appropriate stories. Unfortuneatley it was very wordy and difficult for my daughter to comprehend. There were not many pictures to correspond with the bible stories. I was extremely disappointed. I would not buy this book if I were you.
