What a fantastic collection of Bible stories for children. This book is a great one to share with anyone with children who love animals and the Bible. A true treasure. I loved how each story started with a verse, told a story about that verse, and then they ended with a prayer. I read some of the stories to my children and the loved them and kept asking to hear more, we can't wait to read all of them. The way the stories are told just draw them in, and they are learning something at the same time about God which is fantastic.
This is a really great book of short stories that would be perfect for bedtime, standing in line time, ride to school time, or just about any time. I love that all of the stories include a Bible verse and a prayer starter. I also like that many of them take the time to explain things to the reader (a lamb is a baby sheep, A raven will eat almost anything, sheep are cute but not very smart etc) that he or she probably does not already know. In addition it opens some door for some real conversations between parent and child (Knowing what you know now, why do you think Noah chose a raven and a dove to send out?)
While this is recommended for children ages 5-8 I can honestly say that my 3 year old LOVED the stories and I even caught my 11 and 13 year old listening in from time to time. This has been a great addition to our library and one we plan to use frequently!
