Ethan Knight5 Stars Out Of 5In Response to Irish reviewJuly 29, 2016Ethan KnightQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5I love these stories and read them almost nightly to my children. They are under the age of 3 and certainly don't understand everything in the stories, but they love the pictures and they know, learn, and love the characters. Biblically accurate. I was shocked when I saw how poor the reviews are of this book, first thinking "wow, what have i missed" and saw that the chief complaint is the use of "Once Upon a Time." The Parable of the Lost Sheep. The Parable of the Rich Fool. The Wise and Foolish Builders (Jesus is clearly telling the story illustratively). Those stories are where Jesus is telling a parable. A parable is a brief fictional narrative. It is absolutely appropriate and accurate for the author to say "One day Jesus told a story. This is what He said: Once upon a time.... "
This series of books is a fantastic tool to teach the Bible to your children (and remind yourself) at a very young age, and when I read the negative reviews, I created an account on this site specifically to address these comments and advise other parents that this is a fantastic book. Highly recommend this book.
Irish1 Stars Out Of 5Read-Aloud Bible Stories VOL 5July 7, 2015IrishQuality: 1Value: 1Meets Expectations: 1I have loved this series and have enjoyed the first four books with my two daughters and now with my two granddaughters. When I saw that Volume 5 was going to be released, I immediately preordered it because I expected the same wonderful storytelling that was in Volumes 1-4. Unfortunately, Volume 5 was a HUGE disappointment. Out of the five stories in the book, three of them begin as follows: One day Jesus told a story. This is what He said: Once upon a time.... " Although it's easy to simply not read this part aloud, it was very shocking to see this in a book series that I have trusted, admired, and recommended. I simply do not understand the author's intent in using a phrase that is used in fairy tales!
In addition, these stories are much too advanced in concepts for the young child to grasp. For example, I'm currently reading to an advanced highly verbal Jesus-focused 3 year old, but conveying the spiritual concept behind building your house on a rock versus the sand is simply beyond this age. This volume may be useful with older children, but the use of "once upon a time" by a Christian author just flat out disqualifies it for me.
If this is simply a repackaging of a previous book by the author on the parables of Jesus (as reviewer number one has shared), then this is very deceptive marketing as it in no way fits with the other volumes.
H2 Stars Out Of 5Old book printed with new titleFebruary 18, 2015HQuality: 5Value: 4Meets Expectations: 1If you have The Tell-Me Stories, Parables Jesus Told (out of print) by Ella K. Lindvall, this is the same book printed under a new title. I always get frustrated when I buy a "new" book by an author I like or in a series I like and find out it's really an old book with a new title. Makes sense to print it again with a new title. I just wish it was first thing in the book description.
