Missing the heart of the Gospel Story!
May 30, 2016
Positives first: great bright pictures, solid quality in that sense.
There is NO mention of Jesus' death or resurrection! These two events are at the heart, and are the critical juncture of the whole Good News story of the Bible--to exclude them completely is hard to understand!
I bought this to give to a toddler who was being dedicated but could not bring myself to do so--not wanting a young child reading a story about Jesus that simply doesn't include any mention of his death and resurrection.
I understand that dying is a difficult subject -- I have a 3 year old, and young baby myself -- yet I have seen my own toddler grasp in simple child-like faith the death and resurrection of Jesus!
If you are looking for a good Bible for toddlers -- look elsewhere and find one of the MANY that include Jesus' death and resurrection in very age appropriate ways.
This book is a good size for a toddler. The drawings are bright and colourful and the cover and pages are sturdy enought to take some abuse form little hands and teeth. My only reservation is that the selection of bible stories presented is a little odd. Some of the "big stories" are skipped over for some that are not too exciting for little readers. No parting of the Red Sea, we get Moses in the basket instead. No Good Friday, no Easter morning, only the Assumption. Even the miracles of Jesus that are told are not relatable to children. And Jesus saying "let the little children come to me" is not included either. I know it's only 40 pages, but it really seems to miss the mark in this regard. Still my 2 year old loves to look at the pictures!
