MY REVIEW -
I thought this was a gorgeous hard cover book. I loved the bright colorful pictures.
The stories were very nicely done. It takes the major events from the Bible and tells them in story-like fashion for the minds of young children. I read quite a few of them (not because I had to but because I was really enjoying them!). The stories are told in such a way that makes it seem exciting and interesting, and simple enough for little ones to want to hear them. I am actually really looking forward to reading this to my future grandchildren.
'In the very beginning, God made heaven and earth. There were no people. No animals. No life.
And there was no light. It was dark, Very dark. Completely dark.
So on the first day God said, "Let there be light!" And there was light.
We call the light "day" and the darkness "night". And God saw is was good. That was all in one day!'
Thank you Kregel Publications for sending me this beautiful book to read and review!
