99 Stories from the Bible ~ Review

99 Stories from the Bible
By Juliet David
Illustrated by Elina Ellis

99 Stories from the Bible is a perfect book to introduce your littlest ones to the Bible.  The stories are short and simple for easy comprehension.  The illustrations are colorful and should capture the attention of whomever you share this special time with.

Beginning with the Creation, which is broken into 6 sections you and your little one will take a journey through the Old Testament that will take you out of the Garden of Eden.  You'll journey with Abraham to the Promised Land and you'll join Joseph in Egypt.  You'll confront Pharaoh with Moses and travel the wilderness before taking back the land promised to Abraham.

In the New Testament you be with Mary when the angel tells her the special role she will play and you'll travel with Jesus as He completes His earthly ministry before He dies upon the cross.  You'll experience the sorrow of His death and the take part in the incredible joy when He triumphs over death and returns to Heaven.

This is a book you'll want to share with the little ones in your life.  This would be a delightful dedication or baptism gift for the new baby in the family.

I was provided a copy of this book by the publisher in exchange for my honest review.
