As a child, I did not grow up in a Christian home. Reading Bible stories at bedtime (or any other time for that matter), was not something I did.
But having come to Christ in my early 20’s, I had the privilege of reading Bible stories to my own children every night. Even though my children are grown now, I love the opportunity to review products for children. After all, I am a child at heart! And with my first grandchild on the way, and a Sunday School Class full of 4-6 year olds, I am building a library of acceptable reading materials to share with the little ones in my life.
I was thrilled to have the opportunity to review the Treasury of Bible Stories, by Kelly Pulley. Since I don’t have little ones in my home, I was excited to have this beautiful little helper to aid in my review process.
About The Book
Featuring lyrical stories that will make you laugh, this colorful collection is perfect for reading out loud. Magnificent Tales are rhyming Bible stories with clever art and clear lessons the whole family will enjoy. The stories and illustrations are so engaging that you won’t grow tired of reading a Magnificent Tale night after night! From “The Salty Tale of Noah’s Ark” to “The Lasting Story of the Last Supper,” the rhyming tales in this book remind us that God loves His people–in the Bible and today.
My little helper loved the vibrant and colorful illustrations in the book, which I find very appealing to the eye. The rhyming stories were fun and although some were a little long, they seemed to keep her attention. We were a little disappointed that the book didn’t have some of our favorite stories, like creation or the healing miracles of Jesus. But we realize this is a treasury and not meant to be the entire Bible.
The Treasury of Bible Stories would make a great gift for families to read together regularly as a fun and easy way to learn Bible stories. It would also make a great gift to children who may not read the Bible regularly, or to non-Christian families because it introduces Bible stories in a fun, non-threatening way.
