We have quite a collection of Bible and story books for our girls. I am pretty particular about the Bible books they have, because of my background with theology and the church. I am always looking for accuracy, and language they can understand without watering down the truth of the Scriptures. Because I also love children’s literature, illustrations and an engaging layout, I am extra critical of these areas.
Glenys Nellist has written a unique and inspiring set of stories about the incredible women in the Bible. Beautiful illustrations and unique lift-the-flap envelopes are included in every story, delivering a special message for the reader: their personal love letter from God. With stories like Eve, Miriam, Mary, Rahab, Esther, and more, there is a great variety of narratives to learn from.
Our girls have been reading a daily Bible story for their entire lives, so impressing them is hard. However, as you can see in the video, Maddy was very involved in this reader, ready to discover each story and the special message in each love letter.
I would recommend this book as a gift book, or as a fun Bible reader for girls age 4-8. It has wonderful illustrations, an engaging format, and simple language. I felt the stories were accurate and well-delivered.
You can purchase a copy here on Amazon or snag it on Kindle as well! HOWEVER, I HIGHLY recommend that you purchase this book in print. The tangible format is not only better for kids, but the love letter flaps will be less impacting digitally.
