Little Angels Bible Storybook

Roma Downey's "Little Angels Bible Storybook" is an absolutely adorable children's book. "Little Angels" retells many of our most loved Bible stories using kid-friendly language, and couples that with stunningly vivid illustrations. This book begins with the story of Creation in Genesis, and ends the Old Testament stories with the story of Jonah. The New Testament stories begin with the birth of Jesus, and ends with Jesus' promised return in Revelation. What I really like about this book is that it has stories from both the Old and New Testament, so it is more like a complete storybook for young children. The stories themselves are relatively short, which works well for younger children who may not have a long attention span. The print is very large, so it would be perfect for children who are learning how to read on their own. Each story is only two or three pages long, followed by a page that helps the child relate to the story, featuring an "I Can" that uses everday situations for children and related them to the moral of the story. This page also features a bible verse and short prayer related to the reading. The illustrations in this book are absolutely beautiful - vivid and colorful, and relevant to the story featured. I loved that this book is hardback, with children I've found hardback books to wear less with young children.

Overall I think this book is perfect - my four year old LOVES it, and it is the perfect bedtime story book for her. I would recommend this book for ages 3-7.
