I wanted to introduce my son (21 months old) to Jesus and the other people and stories in the Bible. This book is good for my purposes. The illustrations are engaging and I like them quite a lot. The pictures are what we're really interested right now but I'm enjoying the writing and reading it to him. It's maybe not perfectly accurate or complete scripture but it's absolutely age appropriate for the target age ranges. May be too simple for 7-8 year olds and I would probably choose something different for a child in that range.
Cosmetically, the hardcover feels like a small textbook. Good binding, shiny bright pages. Excellent quality, great price.
