This has been a family favorite. The type is large for beginning readers, the illustrations are engaging, and the repetition of words makes it fun for the early reader. They are true to the biblical accounts; just simplified. We did have some problems with a few pages coming loose.
Tenderly told stories that are loved by little ones with fantastic illustrations covering both pages. (No pictures of Jesus except from the back.) At the end of each story is a "What did you learn?" section. Very well done! Plan to give a set to each of our married children who have a family.
I used these books with all of my children when they were younger. I just purchased a set for the 2 and 3 year old Sunday school class at our church. They are wonderful! The stories and illustrations are simple, yet they teach big truths about the Lord. I highly recommend them.
My 4 year old beginning reader loves these books! They have just the right balance of repetition and challenge so that she feels like she accomplished something and read from the Bible. It doesn't get any better than having your child beg to read to you from the Bible!
I'm looking at this set today for a shower present. These books were the absolute BEST when our kids were small. The stories are told appropriately for young children, but best of all, there aren't too many words on each page. Like good story books for young children, these books had just the right picture/word ratio.
