Maureen5 Stars Out Of 5Highly RecommendApril 29, 2017MaureenQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5This is an excellent first Bible story book for little ones! My daughter is 3 1/2 and got it for Easter and loves it. The concepts and words are simple for little minds just learning about Jesus and the pics are vibrant and eye catching. The only drawback is the book is big and heavy and difficult for her to pick up and carry although she has sat by herself to look at the pictures. Great to have among our Bible story resources for bedtime and other story time reading together. Book durabilty is great too.

kipachaCumming, GAAge: 25-34Gender: female5 Stars Out Of 5Great Illustrations, Great Preschool ConceptsApril 21, 2013kipachaCumming, GAAge: 25-34Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5This series is by far the best children's Bible storybook I've seen. The stories are written with preschool concepts in mind. And the illustrations overly exaggerate the concepts it is trying to convey. For example in the story of Zachheus (pg. 6-7), they say he "was too little to reach high things...." and then show him as a tiny man in a huge chair. Throughout the story of Zaccheus they stress Little / Big and Happy / Sad. Great preschool concepts.
The text is large with enough words on each page that describe the illustration with preschool concepts but not too many that kids lose interest with the staying on the same page for too long! For example in "The Boys and Girls and Jesus," the children come to see Jesus as part of families. So the preschool concept of family is described by saying "Every day lots of daddies and mommies came to hear Jesus talk. Grandpas and grandmas and friends came, too. Some days - there were too many people to get inside a house. Then, the daddies and the mommies and the grandpas and the grandmas and the friends stood right out in the sunshine..." (p.71-74)
The book has large enough font size that you can hold the book facing a group of children and still be able to read from it. It's great for older children to read to younger children, or for an adult to read to a group of children. The book is sturdy hardcover so it's easy to handle it for this purpose.

DebbieIndianaGender: female5 Stars Out Of 5Great/kid friendly illustrations & involvementSeptember 15, 2012DebbieIndianaGender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5I LOVE this book series! I've used it in my preschool for many years. The children enjoy the large, wonderfully done illustrations on every page. The stories are written to include the reader's participation, helping them to become part of the story. I also often use the questions at the end of each story. All of these aspects help the children to remember the story they've heard. I just wish there were more of these books! P.S. They're also great for grandchildren & new baby gifts!
