My Review:

The stories included give a good basis of who God is and his love for man written in a style and conciseness for young toddlers’ attention span.  The vibrant colors and delightful drawings will keep their attention as they learn about God and His Word.

This is a welcome book for parents who read to their children, as well as a first reader for those children just learning to read.

Only a couple of things I felt should have been different.  Adam and Eve should have been adults instead of young kids.  I also felt the reason for Jesus’ death and resurrection should have been addressed, as that is the basis of God’s plan of salvation.

The creativity of the drawings and the stories picked, otherwise, make it a delightful book for toddlers of early readers.
