My Toddler Bible - Juliet David & Chris Embleton-Hall


5 Stars!

ABOUT THE BOOK -
Fans of Chris Embleton-Hall's cheerfully distinctive artwork will be eager to see this new Bible! Twenty stories―nine from the Old Testament and eleven from the New―are retold in a concise and friendly manner in a rounded, easy-to-read font. Very, very bright, and very, very fun!

ABOUT THE AUTHOR AND ILLUSTRATOR -
Juliet David has written many children’s stories and Bible activity books. Her other interests include painting, music, and travel to Israel and other Bible lands. This experienced author lives in London with her family.

Chris Embleton-Hall is an English-based artist specializing in children’s illustration who uses a mixture of digital styles, most recently incorporating pattern and texture. He spent hours of his spare time as a child drawing with his granddad, before studying for a degree in illustration. 

MY THOUGHTS -
I really liked this book a lot!  It touches on all the big Bible stories. It tells them in such a way that very young children can easily understand. I like that there is not too many words on each page, but it gets to the main points of the story. You can fill in more on your own with your child if you want. I like that. It's like "food for thought". This book is a nice beginning.

I think with a Bible for young children - you can't include everything! The book would be too big! And they would get bored with it very quickly. So you have to keep it simple, to the point, just touching the basics of each story just to give them the beginning they need to get interested. And I think this one does it very nicely! Then as they get older move them on to a bible that explains more in depth. I really like the way this book does all that!



The pictures are gorgeous! They will definitely attract attention from little ones. 
It is a very nice hard cover book with glossy pages - 220 pages! So a real nice size!
I am a nanny for a family of four (my own daughter is grown and married) the 18mo. old I watch would love this! And I hope to be using it for my own grandchildren someday!

Thank you Kregel publications for sending me this beautiful book for my honest review!
