The Gospel Story Bible - Marty Machowski (Review)

5 STARS !!!!!
ABOUT THE BOOK -
Can a Bedtime Story Actually Change Your Life? It is easy to forget Jesus in the midst of frantic schedules, family squabbles, and conflicting priorities. But the truth is that he is the hero of every story, including these ordinary ones. This is why Marty Machowski puts God's plan of salvation in Christ on continuous display in The Gospel Story Bible. The easy-to-read storybook introduces your family to many captivating people, places, and events from the Bible's Old and New Testaments, showing how each one ultimately points to Jesus. As you share these Bible Stories together, you and your family will meet Jesus and learn a new, life-changing way of recognizing Christ as the hero of every story. Vibrant illustrations by A. E. Macha, child-friendly discussion questions, and Scripture references accompany each narrative to help you lead your family in exploring the Bible. You will be delighted to discover how easily even a young child can understand the original text of a story that he or she has already come to love.

MY REVIEW -
This is a beautiful book! It is a hard cover thick, heavy, very well made book with gorgeous bright pictures! I read a few of the stories and they are very easy reading and easy to understand. This would be a great "read-alone" book for maybe a pre-teen (making reading the bible a little more fun). But it would also be a great "read-out-loud" book to read with a younger child and then discuss it afterwards.
I can not get over the brightness of the pages in this book! Any young person (or Adult, for that matter, LOL) will be delighted with this! 
I am including some pictures of the inside pages just so you can see a sampling -
