This is an awesome, joyful book for children and adults - telling the story of never-stopping, always faithful, always forgiving love of Jesus.
We read this Bible every night to our son before bed. I would recommend this to all families. The stories are the truth of the bible, but can be a little scary to wee-ones.
I love this book!!
