    I love reading to children from the day they're born. Reading and looking at pictures in books are wonderful learning tools for the stories of the Bible. While young children, ages 8-12 perhaps, will be able to read this book, I think that is too complex for younger children, ages 3-7. The wording and length of the stories could be changed to meet the needs of younger children.

    Some of the stories were quite explicit for younger children. I don't even let my grandchildren watch shows with murder. It is frightening to young children. For younger children, these parts could be left out. I think young readers in 2nd grade and up would enjoy reading these stories on their own or with an adult as they can discuss the stories also.

    I like having the scripture references for each story. The illustrations are lovely and help to create a visual image for the child.

    I am giving this book a 4 **** star rating.

    I received a copy of this book from netgalley and Barbour Publishing in exchange for an honest review. All opinions expressed are my own. I was not required to write a positive review.

    Well this was certainly not the review I thought I would be leaving on the book I read this week. In fact, I didn't even finish the book. (GASP.) That never happens.

    Because I'm trying to grow a library of children's books for when kiddos come to visit, I asked to review 365 Classic Bedtime Bible Stories inspired by Jesse Lyman Harlbut's Story of the Bible. I chose this because one of my absolute fondest memories of my own childhood is the bedtime Bible stories my dad told me every night. Yes, you read that right. He told me the stories. He didn't read them from any book. He told them from his memory and made them full, rich, and memorable.

    One issue I have with many Bible story books for kids is that they all tell the same main stories and skip some of the "lesser known" parts of the Bible. Dad never skipped. He told all the stories, and I think that was so wise of him. I think kids should grow up with a more complete understanding of the Bible. (This is all very important background for what I'm about to say.)

    I launched into reading this book with great expectations, and at least where illustrations are concerned, it immediately impressed me. The cartoonish illustrations are cute and tastefully done, which is important when the book is geared to ages 3 and up. The stories are very short, which is also very important when you're dealing with 3 year olds and bedtime, right?

    Now, I will say that one good thing about this book is that it left very few stones unturned on Bible stories. That was exactly what I was looking for, right? Wouldn't that make my day? Well, normally, yes. But the execution of the stories appalled me.

    And yes. I chose the word execution on purpose. I have never seen a children's Bible storybook more fixated on all the deaths in the Bible than this one. And not just mentioning them, but describing them. And then after chronicling such a death, the story ends abruptly and apparently you are supposed to say a bright "Good night!" to your child and put him or her to bed.

    Abrupt is actually another word that describes these stories very well. They aren't embellished at all. They are clipped and void of any kind of emotion or exciting description. And sometimes the words chosen are way above a three year old's vocabulary.

    Let me give you a couple of examples:

    There is a chapter about Israel's Cities of Refuge, and in part, the story says, "People sometimes kill others by accident. If this happened in Israel, they could be safe in these cities. This was a law of God that had been given by Moses. Before that, if someone killed another by accident, they too were killed. The dead man's relatives would kill them. It didn't matter that it was an accident." (The story goes on, but I think you get the point.) While all those things are true, this would not be what I would want to fill a kid's mind with right before bed.

    Not long after that chapter is the one about Sisera the Canaanite general who fell asleep and "Jael drove a tent peg into Sisera's head and killed him."

    I read half the book before realizing this just isn't one I want to add to my library. I appreciate the illustrations. I appreciate the inclusion of forgotten stories. I appreciate the full Scripture reference listed at the top of each chapter so parents can read the full story themselves if they want. But I think the storytelling lacks excitement, and I think the intense use of murder stories in a bedtime book is misplaced, especially for kids as young as three.

    I think if parents wanted to tell these stories and encase them in words that offer the truth without offering fear, it would be better. Parents know their kids, know what they can handle, and could hedge the information age-appropriately. Then, as the kids grow, they can offer more detailed bits of the stories.

    I like the idea of this book, but I just couldn't feel at peace with the presentation. I'm sad about that, but it's the truth.

    "I received a complimentary copy of this book from Barbour Publishing and was under no obligation to post a review."

    As a grandmother, I am always looking for books that I can send on to my 12 grandchildren. With so many young grandchildren I am keenly aware of what will cause interest and what is considered uninteresting. This book is colorful and catches the attention of the younger kids right away. They liked looking at the pictures while the older ones found the stories easy to read and each story just the right length for keeping attention spans. Along with the book holding interest, appealing to the eyes, it also is of good quality and even has an attached bookmark so you can keep track of where to start for your next reading. It would be a great gift book for young families, and just enough of the story is given to allow for additional discussion. NOTE: As with any book that is attempting to offer an overview of a Bible story, the accuracy and content will vary. For those reading the stories to their children, it is essential to know the story accurately yourself so you can still enjoy the 'storybook' style with little ones while imparting an accurate picture of the story through discussion. I feel this book designed for ages 3-6.

I really enjoyed reading this book to my class. I teach a class of 2 & 3 years old children on Sunday am. They enjoyed the short stories and colorful pictures.

    I received a complimentary copy of this book from Barbour Publishing and was under no obligation to post a review. This is not a book that you sit down and read from cover to cover. I plan to give it to my grandchildren for Christmas. The illustrations are bright and colorful. The stories are written to be easily understandable to children and are short enough to allow some discussion afterward with the children.

    I am looking forward to reading these stories to my grandchildren for many years to come
