MY REVIEW -
Absolutely gorgeous book! I have some other books by this author and they are all wonderful!
To start, it has a very nice padded hardcover. Every single page is in full color. And the illustrations are just beautiful. It stays true to the original bible stories, and has little prayers/poems as well.
I love it!
This would be wonderful to read with your child at bedtime (or grandchild). The writing is simple enough that in time your child could even read it themselves. So this is a book that will stay with your child a while.

Here are some pictures of the inside (Gor-geous!) -
I put my hand in there so you could see the size.
