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 Review

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.

Take a look at the book trailer:

    Wow!! well, I did grow up with reading Bible stories and memorizing verses…singing Bible songs
    and so I really enjoy retelling and sharing them with my own children… but, am always looking for more ways to keep them alive and real.

    I shared one from memory tonight – and they didn’t like it. It was the one of Elisha and the children who were caught mocking him because of his bald head… and how the two bears came and destroyed the children..
    Of course, like I said, my kids didn’t like the story… but I shared it specifically to remind them about how important it is to NEVER make fun of someone else…(not that they do!) … but, as well, I shared it how as a youngster I remember that story really having a profound impact on and in how I treated others particularly the elderly.

    We visited a nursing home today and my children always want to hear a story at bedtime of when I was a kid… so, I pulled all of that together.

    Thanks for the chance at winning!!

    My favorite was Joseph and his multi-colored coat. The story is so much more meaningful to me now though!

    When I was growing up my favorite was The Good Samaritan. It always encouraged me to want to help others and be compassionate. I always remember how I would take some groceries over to our neighbor Mr. Artthur after my mom shopped for him.

    What a fun-sounding book for the littles!
    One of my favorite stories is when Elijah asked God to let it be known that He is the only true God, and fire feel form heaven and consumed the offering on the alter. It is just such a poignant reminder that the world will trust in many things, but they do have the opportunity to see God and the chance to believe!

    Thanks for sharing! My daughter’s story book bible is well worn and I have been thinking of investing in another one for variety. Nothing like reading scriptures to a child! Blessings, Tiffany
