The Berenstain Bears Storybook Bible for Little Ones by Jan and Mike Berenstain

The Berenstain Bears have a new Storybook Bible out for little ones.  The age range stated for this book on Amazon.com is 4-8 years.  But I would say this book is appropriate for kids ages 3-5 years old.  This book has 8 different Bible stories included: Creation (Genesis 1), Noah (Genesis 6), David and Goliath (I Samuel 17), Daniel in the Lions' Den (Daniel 6), The Birth of Jesus (Luke 1), The Good Neighbor (Luke 10), Jesus in Jerusalem, (Matthew 20), and He is Risen (Matthew 28).

  The Berenstain Bear books have been some of our favorites throughout the years, and I was excited to be able to review this new board book for little ones.  It is a nice sturdy board book with a padded cover.  The pages are filled with great colors that are good for capturing little ones' attentions while you are reading the story.  The stories are very simplistic intended to help small children understand on their level.  They did leave out the message of the cross, just stating that Jesus died.  I thought that was interesting.  In the story of Noah, I wasn't too thrilled with the wording.  The author says, "So God made a plan.  He went to his friend Noah for help."  God doesn't need us.  He is our Creator.  We need Him.  Noah was called to obey, and he obeyed.  So, other than those two things, the rest of the book was pretty good.  Overall, not a bad book, but I wasn't truly that impressed.

***I received this free book from BookLook Bloggers in exchange for an honest opinion.
