Really Wolly Bible Stories

Really Wolly Bible Stories
by Bonnie Rickner Jensen
Illustrated by Julie Sawyer Phillips

Such an adorable little book of Bible stories, perfect for infant up to 4-5 years.  Stories are very short and to the point, easy to understand words and engaging pictures to acompany the story.  Key words are in pink, offering opportunity for discussion as they are often bigger words, or words a child might be unfamiliar with.  Stories in this book include creation, Abraham, the 10 Commandments, Jonah and so many more.  16 stories in all, with an introduction and a prayer at the end.

A board book with a padded front cover, this book is sturdy for little hands, resilient and able to put up with drool and food, along with whatever else a child might smear on it.  Illustrations are pastels mostly, cheery and soft, with cute animal characters and friendly looking people.  Multiple races are represented in pictures.  Each story has a reference to where the complete story can be found in the Bible.

Highly recommended!  A cute little story book just long enough to hold short little attention spans, put up with abuse, conform to little hands and convey a message within a familar Bible story.  A great gift and welcome addition to any children's library collection.
