My six-year old and I have read the first few chapters and it is an interesting read. We bought the deluxe version with the CD and the gentleman reading the story has a very animated voice with an accent, so it keeps your interest also.
Both families of our grandchildren love these stories and the CDs that provide a clear reading of the book. Each story clearly points to Jesus and helps children understand the correlation of the Old Testament and New Testament.
This doesn't only minister to the hearts of children of all ages, but to the parents (or reader) too! We give this as a birthday gift quite often because I think it is so beautifully written and accurately pointing to Jesus throughout every story in the bible. And I know I finish feeling so tremendously loved by God, and pray my children feel the same as we read the stories over and over. The stories are also a good length for a story before bed. The illustrations are also great.
