My Opinion:

 

This is a cute little Bible with the most familiar stories told in child friendly formats and illustrations.  The handle is sturdy and children will enjoy carrying it with them to church or from shelf to couch.  Scripture where each story can be found is included, and the overall story is very short which makes it great for those busy bodies who just can’t sit still for very long – but enough to begin instilling God’s truths to their bodies.  This would make a great gift for a little one this Christmas season.
