I was so excited when I got this sweet little book in the mail. It has 101 Bible stories, hitting all the highlights in the Bible. It is hard-bound and about the size of a Bible, only thinner.
The stories have been simplified of course, each one fits on one page. I would not say everything is 100% true to the Bible. For example, the pictures portray Jesus as having long hair, which we do not believe to be true. Also in the story of Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego, it says the king saw a fourth man who “looks like a god.” But the Bible quotes King Nebuchadnezzar as saying “the Son of God.” Although these accounts aren’t entirely accurate, it wouldn’t keep me from reading to my children, explaining as I go. The problems are minor and don’t take away from the good this little book can do.
I really love the pictures. They are clearly drawings, yet don’t have that cartoonish look that so many Bible story books have.
We’re so glad we have this book and are enjoying reading it together!
I received the book free from the publisher. I was not required to write a positive review. The opinions I have expressed are my own.
