- Very nice Bible story book by Vera on 1/9/2014
When I pick up a book designed for a young child, the first thing that I inspect is the size, heft, and art work. A child should be able to hold the book themselves and it should not be too heavy for their young hands and arms to comfortably hold. The art should be engaging and appealing to the young child and this is the way I see the illustrations of Elina Ellis. When I received 99 Stories From the Bible, I saw immediately that the children for which it is written will be able to comfortably hold and carry around this sweet book.
The art work is soft will pastel colors dominating. The illustrations are detailed without being so complex that a young child can not try to "copy" with his/her own crayons.
The stories each cover a two-page spread and are short and concise hitting the primary point in the story. The type set is large enough for a young reader to be able to read to younger siblings. This will make a very nice addition to the home library for those night time read-aloud story times. The language used in the stories is appropriate for conveying to the young child the main point of the story. Study, hardcover binding with thick pages will enhance the life of this book.

- PERFECT FOR LITTLE BIBLE STUDENTS! by NARITA on 1/6/2014
I am always on looking for quality children’s Bible Story books. Not only for my grandchildren and to use in church nursery, but also I think they are one of the best baby gifts you can give. There are many qualities I look for in a book and this has all of them and a few extra.
One is well made and sturdy to hold up to little hands touching and handling, not only for the present, but for years to come. Some of my children’s Bible story books were passed down to their children. 99 stories from the Bible is both. It is a well-made book and a good value.
Secondly, for the book to be enjoyed and hold the child’s attention, it has to be very colorful with quality illustrations. This book also checks both of those boxes. The characters are not only cute but entertaining. Their bulbous noses and tiny eyes are different than most illustrations in this type of book and bring a fun factor into the pictures.
Most Bible story books have just a few stories, but I was impressed this one had 99! Even though it contained so many it was not big and cumbersome. The Old and New Testament stories are just one to two pages each, just enough for little minds to grasp. While the stories may be short they do an excellent job to sharing the very basic facts of the biblical accounts.
While this is for preschool age children, as they grow older it would be a wonderful learning to read Bible story book for the beginning reader. How proud they would be at their accomplishment and it would be yet another way to instill God’s Word in their hearts. This would be a great baby gift (one for grandparents too), birthday gift, and to keep in the church nursery.
I received this book free from the publisher Kregel Publishers. I was not required to write a positive review. The opinions I have expressed are my own.
- Bible stories for young children by Maureen on 1/6/2014
A perfect book of bible stories for young children. First their eyes will take in the beautiful illustrations and bright colors. The stories start with the old testament and follow on through the new testament.
The stories are geared to a young ones attention span, and are short, but to the point. The pictures that go along with each story, compliment really well. I can just picture the little ones pointing to each of them. Noah's Ark is a good example, the picture shows them two by two, and a male and female. Then the next story is the boat afloat, and the cut animals are peeking out the windows.
What a wonderful gift this book will make, or a Grandparent can use to treasure a few minutes with a loved one.
