Our infant son is still too young to understand words, let alone read, but we wanted to expose him to reading from a very early age. We also wanted to expose him to Christian message, and especially the stories from the Bible. After looking around at several different options I came across this little book. It seemed like an ideal first exposure to the Bible, and a great way to read to a really small child. I can sit him on my lap and hold the book right in front of him. I can read and show him the illustrations while holding him, something that has proven difficult with much larger books.
The book is really tastefully and beautifully illustrated. The illustrations are really well done and will certainly appeal to kids of all ages. Roughly half of the book is dedicated to the Old Testament and the Other Half to the New Testament. The Old Testament includes a snapshots of some of the best known stories - Adam and Eve in the Garden of Eden, Moses parting the Red Sea, Daniel in the Lions' den, etc. The New Testament part is exclusively the Gospel accounts of some of the highlights from the life of Jesus. Each little "story" combines an illustration and four verses on the opposing page. I was worried that the verses might be corny, but they turned out to be quite well written. They are amusing and get the gist of the message that each episode is trying to convey. The verses can be used as a springboard for deeper discussion of the given Biblical stories.
We just love this little book. I expect to read it very often in the upcoming months and years. Would definitely recommend it to parents of small children who want to expose their children to the Biblical stories from an early age.
