My Review:
 My son loves this book! And I have to admit, that you will find various members of our family at any given time reading through this book as well. It is a great book filled with selected Bible stories that are sure to enrich and encourage your child. But that's not all, each story is written in picture form---which I think adds to how truly great the book really is.At the beginning of the book the author and illustrator provide you with two pages filled to the brim with the different pictures included in the book and under each picture there is a one word meaning to help us in reading it to them.

 The book is designed for beginning readers ages 4-7 that are just learning how to read. The rebus method is used so that it makes it easier for them to read and understand. The book is based on the New International Readers version of the Bible and it is amazing to watch those little eyes explore as they start to read all the Bible stories that they have grown to love and now they can read themselves. A delightful way to help new readers learn even more!
