My Review:
 Perfect for that precious toddler in your life that just happens to be a girl. With all the sass and spunk she can muster, this delightful toddler story Bible will be dearly loved by her and very close to her heart. It is a board book with a padded, pink cover. The Sweetest Story Bible for Toddlers, includes 8 of the most well known stories from the Bible. Each one has a scripture reference on the title page and is short&sweet---lasting only two or three pages and in some cases four at the most.

 The author managed to tell each story with only minimal sentences and the illustrations are very suitable for the precious young lady in our lives. She will love carrying this Bible to church with her or to grandma's or even across the room into your lap so that you can read it to her. The wording is simple to understand and it is written for ages 4-8 years of age. My favorite part of this book was all the pink, it brought back memories of my daughter being that young age of four. she was so proud to have her very own Bible. Perfect for gift giving!
