Reason for Reading: We read a bible story every school day.
In the very beginning there was God, but nothing else.
Comments: I have been reading this aloud to my 7/8 yob for the last year, one story a day every school day. I don't want to count exactly how many stories are present but there are a lot with just as many for the New Testament as the Old Testament. The stories are well-told in an easy going, engaging text that is simple enough for children to understand. Many stories have a "Did You Know?" section with interesting information on being a Christian or Biblical history relevant to the story. Plus every story has a "To Remember" section with an applicable Bible verse from the NIrV Bible. The illustrations are a bit wishy-washy but there are plenty of them and the book is very colourful and appealing. In my son's own words he said "I love this Bible". Recommended for GR. 1 to 3. 3rd graders will be able to read for themselves.
