Little Angels Bible Storybook
Little Angels Bible Storybook
As soon as I took the book into my hands, I was excited to show it to my daughter. It is a sturdy padded hardcover book that looks like it will stand the test of time. The cover is brightly colored which immediately drew us both in. As I thumbed through the book I noticed beautifully drawn cartoon characters and vivid pages. I am very impressed with the appeal this book has visually.
This childrenÃ¢ÂÂs Bible story book outlines 100 Bible stories both Old Testament and New Testament stories. When my daughter asked me to read to her the story of Jonah, the table of contents was very helpful in being able to find the story without having to skim throughout the book.
For each Biblical story there is the book and verse in the Bible that it corresponds with. Each story has an Ã¢ÂÂI learned thatÃ¢ÂÂ¦Ã¢ÂÂ which is the main idea of the story and Ã¢ÂÂI canÃ¢ÂÂ¦Ã¢ÂÂ segment involves the children to participate in a challenge to encourages them to live out the Word they just received, a short prayer asking the Lord to help them to apply the lesson learned to their own lives, and a verse that correlates with the story.
At the end of the book I found it helpful that they have outlined a section for Bible verses to remember and the miracles of Jesus.
My daughter and I are enjoying reading this collection of Bible stories together.

A real gem!
Bible storybooks are everywhere nowadays, and IÃ¢ÂÂve had quite a few around here. But this one will be read often! We love the illustrations, the summaries of the Bible stories, the applications, and the simple and quick activities that accompany each lesson/story.
IÃ¢ÂÂve been reading the stories of the New Testament since weÃ¢ÂÂre in that time period in our history study right now. The kids IÃ¢ÂÂve been reading to are 4, 5, and 7, and they love it! They beg me to read more and more each time.
One thing I enjoy is doing the activity with each lesson. I gave each of the kids a small notebook where they put their Ã¢ÂÂworkÃ¢ÂÂ. The storybook is aimed for preschool age, so they do things like write the work Ã¢ÂÂfaithÃ¢ÂÂ, count to 12 (for the 12 baskets of food), draw a picture of a fish, pretend to be a colt, and make a cross with two wooden sticks.

A great children's Bible
My kids are fascinated by reading Bible stories. I am always looking for a new way to share the stories from the Bible with them. We recently tried The Little Angles Bible Storybook and all three of them loved it.
This childrenÃ¢ÂÂs Bible includes 100 stories such as creation, Noah, the birth of Jesus, and Jesus feeds 5,000 as well as many others you would expect to find in a children's Bible. Each story is told in a format that is the perfect length to keep a young child's attention. It is shared in a language that is easy to understand and is not too difficult for my beginner readers to read aloud which is great!
The pictures are cute and you are introduced to several characters (angels) at the beginning of the book that help drive home the principles to be learned from each story. I felt that remembering 10 characters throughout the book was a bit difficult but overall they are cute and do not take away from the Bible stories in any way.
Each story lists where to find the verse the story is based on so we can look it up together. At the conclusion of each story there is also a related Bible verse, prayer, and an activity.
My favorite part of this book is the activity at the end of each section. For example: Work a puzzle, say the names of your friends and thank God for them, draw a picture using your imagination, stack some blocks, count by 2Ã¢ÂÂs, and much more. I have been a Sunday school teacher for years and I am a mother of 3 young kids and I know that kids learn in all different ways. One of the best ways to make a lesson stick is to have the children do an activity related to it. It helps them remember it and it makes it fun too.
I think that this book would be great for a parent or grandparent to use at home or for a preschool or Sunday school teacher to use for a lesson. This book is best for preschoolers but kidÃ¢ÂÂs a bit older or younger may enjoy it as well. My kidÃ¢ÂÂs have several childrenÃ¢ÂÂs Bibles and this is one of the better ones we own.

Cute Bible Story Book!
This book is very cute!! My 6 year old daughter Zoe loves it.
She is also learning to read and we have been reading it together. At 6 years old she can read about half of the words without my help.
This has become my daughter's favorite book and I love the time we have spent together reading it.
I like how this book is laid out, each story is about 4 pages long. Also each story starts with the title, the reference where the story is located in the Bible, then little sections for each story called "I learned that..." ; "I can....." ; "I pray..." followed by a Bible verse (New Living Translation).
There is also a "table of Contents" in the front to easly find the stories you want to read.
The art work is also very beautiful! They have done a wonderful job on this book and you will not regret buying it!
It also says "Recommended for ages 3-6" but I think children older then 6 would like it too.
