This is a great book for kids that have already taken Catechism classes and know the basic heroes of the Bible. My favorite part of this book was that each letter had an appealing picture and a short description. I would have liked to have known where each person was in the Bible though, so I could read more about them. I also read this book with my niece and she asked me questions, which is great when any book inspires thinking. I am giving this book a 3/5. I was given a copy to review, however all opinions are my own.
There are a million ABC books in existence, and it always amazes me when someone comes up with a new way to introduce the alphabet to toddlers. A is for Abinadi is intended for an LDS (Mormon) audience. The characters used to illustrate the letters of the alphabet are taken from The Book of Mormon and from the Holy Bible. The thing I like about this book are the stories behind the people representing each letter. The author condensed each person's story into a short paragraph that is easy for kids to understand. She included a wide range of people (both men and women) from both The Book of Mormon and the Bible. I also really like the illustrations. They are goofy and entertaining, and include other items that start with the featured letter. The only thing I'm not sure about is the way some of the stories are "softened". For example, I can't decide if it's better to portray Uriah the Hittite as a brave man that went to war for the love of king and country, or to tell the whole story - that he was murdered so the king could have his wife. It's kind of like Santa Claus. Do you lie to your kids because you don't know how to tell them the truth, or do you rip the band-aide off and let them cry because they'll eventually find out anyway?
