Who doesn't love a good children's bible? We have quite a few in our collection. You see, people give them to you when you have three little boys who are eager to learn more about Jesus. So, when this new book was up for review I quickly jumped on board. Treasury of Bible Stories (by Kelly Pulley) was written for children ages 4-8. That works out perfectly since my oldest 2 boys are 4 and almost 6 (he insists I say that!).
One of my favorite features of this book is the rhyming aspect. As a young girl I loved to write poems. I only wrote poems that rhymed. I don't know why but I love when things rhyme. So, for me, this was a major score. The second wonderful thing are the beautiful illustrations. My boys are very visual learners. If they can see a picture of what I am reading they comprehend the information better. We are currently using this as our bible reading for our homeschool. They are enjoying the stories and are gaining a deeper knowledge of Jesus through this wonderful and sweet book.
Here is a little 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!"
Here is a little about the author:
"Kelly Pulley has illustrated dozens of books in The Beginner’s Bible series and has authored and illustrated several other children’s books, including Ten Unusual Features of Lulu McDunn and The Cycling Wangdoos. He enjoys spending time with his four grown children and his beautiful wife, Vickie, in the Nashville area."
