5 STARS!!!!!

ABOUT THE BOOK -
Baby's Little Bible was written by new mom Sarah Toulmin as a way of sharing the stories she so loved with her own little ones. Her ultra-simple retellings of twenty favorite stories, from Creation to Resurrection, are filled with a sense of wonder, expressing God's love for creation. Featuring Kristina Stephenson's heartwarming, baby-friendly illustrations, this little Bible offers lots to look at and point to while parent and child share this delightful book together. Now available in a small format with a padded cover in either pink or blue, or as a gift edition with gilt edges and a ribbon marker, Baby's Little Bible is a perfect starter Bible to share with a much-loved child.

MY REVIEW -
What a beautiful little Bible story book! It has a nice padded hard cover, beautiful pictures, and easy to understand stories.
Here are some pictures I took - the first one was so you could see how big it is -
 And since I am doing all Christmas books this month. Here are some pictures of "The Christmas Story" (click on them to make them bigger) -


I was very impressed when I received this book. It is a great size and a full 159 pages with color drawing on every page!
This reads just like a story book, with delightful fun text like -
"God sent the rain. It rained and rained. 
Splish!
Splash!
Splosh!
The boat began to float."
Any young child would love this Bible book. What a great tool for a parent (or Grandparent) to use.
I am sorry I am not giving this one away! I am saving it for future Grandchildren!
It comes in both Blue and Pink, of course I got the pink because even though my daughter has not even thought of children yet, everyone knows - in my family we only have girls! There have been no born boys! So no blue for us.

Here are some links where you can buy it -

Thank you Kregel Publications for sending me this beautiful book to review!
