When I pick up a book designed for a young child, the first thing that I inspect is the size, heft, and art work. A child should be able to hold the book themselves and it should not be too heavy for their young hands and arms to comfortably hold. The art should be engaging and appealing to the young child and this is the way I see the illustrations of Elina Ellis. When I received 99 Stories From the Bible, I saw immediately that the children for which it is written will be able to comfortably hold and carry around this sweet book. The art work is soft will pastel colors dominating. The illustrations are detailed without being so complex that a young child can not try to "copy" with his/her own crayons. The stories each cover a two-page spread and are short and concise hitting the primary point in the story. The type set is large enough for a young reader to be able to read to younger siblings. This will make a very nice addition to the home library for those night time read-aloud story times. The language used in the stories is appropriate for conveying to the young child the main point of the story. Study, hardcover binding with thick pages will enhance the life of this book.

I received a copy of 99 STORIES FROM THE BIBLE by Juliet David and illustrated by Elina Ellis, from Candle Books via Kregel. I was thrilled to receive this, since I love Bible stories, especially those intended for children. I’m able to share them with my young cousins and do learning activities with them. The illustrations in this book practically leap off the pages, so they were perfect for copying onto poster board and telling our own versions of what happened on that page. The stories are shorted to be one or two pages, and some characters continue for multiple short stories, such as Abraham and Sarah. My family and I enjoy “Bible Chat,” where we each read a different story from a kid’s Bible. We then compare the different retellings. 99 STORIES FROM THE BIBLE worked perfectly for that. I highly recommend this book for adults who hope to teach their children more about the Bible. It has a thick cover and large print, but the pages are paper, so it might not be appropriate for infants. The bright pictures will capture anyone’s attention and the stories will invoke amazing conversations. I will be passing this book on to a friend with a seven-year-old son to enjoy it.

I am always on looking for quality children’s Bible Story books.  Not only for my grandchildren and to use in church nursery, but also I think they are one of the best baby gifts you can give.  There are many qualities I look for in a book and this has all of them and a few extra. One is well made and sturdy to hold up to little hands touching and handling, not only for the present, but for years to come. Some of my children’s Bible story books were passed down to their children.  99 stories from the Bible is both.  It is a well-made book and a good value. Secondly, for the book to be enjoyed and hold the child’s attention, it has to be very colorful with quality illustrations.  This book also checks both of those boxes.  The characters are not only cute but entertaining.  Their bulbous noses and tiny eyes are different than most illustrations in this type of book and bring a fun factor into the pictures.  Most Bible story books have just a few stories, but I was impressed this one had 99!  Even though it contained so many it was not big and cumbersome.  The Old and New Testament stories are just one to two pages each, just enough for little minds to grasp.  While the stories may be short they do an excellent job to sharing the very basic facts of the biblical accounts.   While this is for preschool age children, as they grow older it would be a wonderful learning to read Bible story book for the beginning reader.  How proud they would be at their accomplishment and it would be yet another way to instill God’s Word in their hearts. This would be a great baby gift (one for grandparents too), birthday gift, and to keep in the church nursery.   I received this book free from the publisher Kregel Publishers. I was not required to write a positive review. The opinions I have expressed are my own.

A perfect book of bible stories for young children. First their eyes will take in the beautiful illustrations and bright colors. The stories start with the old testament and follow on through the new testament. The stories are geared to a young ones attention span, and are short, but to the point. The pictures that go along with each story, compliment really well. I can just picture the little ones pointing to each of them. Noah's Ark is a good example, the picture shows them two by two, and a male and female. Then the next story is the boat afloat, and the cut animals are peeking out the windows. What a wonderful gift this book will make, or a Grandparent can use to treasure a few minutes with a loved one. I received this book through Kregel Publications, and was not required to give a positive review.

I have had a fascination with Bible story books since I was a child. Remember the gigantic storybooks on the table in the waiting room of every doctor's office? I always gravitated towards them and even today I always find myself looking for them when I have an appointment. The stories and illustrations fed my six year-old mind then and still draw me in today. 99 Stories from the Bible contains Bible stories from the Creation to Jesus' return and everything in between. The stories are told in a way that's very easy to understand and your child will have fun while learning important facts from the Bible. It's compact in size compared to the usual ones I see and that makes for easier handling, which is a plus in my book. It has a presentation page and full page illustrations. It's illustrated by Elina Ellis and I have to say her illustrations are amazing. They are so colorful and life-like and they will certainly draw your child into the story. If you would like to teach your child and/or children the Bible, this would be an easy and effective way to do it. This will be an excellent addition to any child's library and it will also make a great gift. I recommend it to anyone with young children who would like to teach them Bible facts in a fun-filled way.
