Hi

I totally agree with all of the reviews listed here in terms of how precious and wonderful this little bible is, however ... i felt it right to come on here and put a review (in case this might bother some as it did us). Truly, it's the only negative thing I have to say about the bible, but really might be a big enough negative to some people that it's worth mentioning and is the reason I can only give it 2 stars.

The bible adds feelings/extras to the character stories, that we truly don't know were there, and sometimes we felt they were perhaps even incorrect or rude. Sorry forgive me that I don't have all the actual bible examples right in front of me to quote from - but I will try to do my best to describe an example of what I mean by adds feelings/extras (which seriously at times it really bothered us):

When reading one of the bible stories, for instance pg 264 of the boys version of this bible; it reads "The jailer shoved Paul into the damp dark cell. It was buried in the very center of the prison. Roaches and ants scurried across the floor as Paul fell onto it. Paul had been in prison before, but this time he and Silas were in big trouble. The jailer had strict orders to be sure they didn't escape." (that seems fine and like a nice little bible story, but here is where it bets bothersome) pg265 - "All I did was set a young girl free from the demon that controlled her, Paul thought. You'd think people would thank me for saving her." Sorry but things like this really bothered us. We didn't feel it was a fair representation of the humble, gracious servant's heart that Paul displays throughout the Bible in the New Testament ... or that it was even accurately portraying something Paul would have thought.

1.0 out of 5 stars A Dangerous Book... July 1, 2010
Format:Hardcover
Yes, I said "dangerous."

The author has taken great liberties with the Scriptures, not only adding inner thoughts and speech to the men and women of the Bible, but, in several instances, changing or adding to the facts.

For example, on page 20, in the story of Adam and Eve and the forbidden fruit: "That fruit is from the tree God told us to stay away from," Adam shouted. But he couldn't resist taking a bite of it, too.

Biblical Account---So when the woman saw that the tree [was] good for food, that it [was] pleasant to the eyes, and a tree desirable to make [one] wise, she took of its fruit and ate. She also gave to her husband with her, and he ate. - Gen 3:6 NKJV

In "Whatever You Say, Dear" about "Mrs. Noah": "But we don't have any children," Mrs. Noah objected. "You'd better start knitting booties, my dear. I think God has a plan for us." Noah smiled... By the time the ark was built, Mrs. Noah had three sons--and they were all grown up and married.

Biblical Account---[9] This is the genealogy of Noah. Noah was a just man, perfect in his generations. Noah walked with God. [10] And Noah begot three sons: Shem, Ham, and Japheth. [11] The earth also was corrupt before God, and the earth was filled with violence. [12] So God looked upon the earth, and indeed it was corrupt; for all flesh had corrupted their way on the earth. [13] And God said to Noah, "The end of all flesh has come before Me, for the earth is filled with violence through them; and behold, I will destroy them with the earth. [14] Make yourself an ark of gopherwood; make rooms in the ark, and cover it inside and outside with pitch. ...

5.0 out of 5 stars Thoughful and Whimsical, Invitation to Care & Share! December 8, 1999
Format:Hardcover
Special book for little girls. I gave three for gifts and received very positive feedback from moms. The illustrations are delightful! Make sure you hunt for the little angel with pink & white polka dot wings in every picture! Each chapter is an open invitation for dialogue about the Bible story and how its teachings relate to our everyday lives. I can't wait to add the other books by the same author & illustrator to my favorite little girl's collection.

5.0 out of 5 stars Sharing God's word with your daughter September 7, 2002
Format:Hardcover
I bought this book for my daughter for Christmas. And we love to curl up at bedtime to read a few bible stories. The illustrations are colorful and beautiful. The stories are written for a child and easy to understand. Each story has discussion questions that you can share with each other, and on every page, challenge your little girl to find the hidden angel in each picture.
A lovely keepsake for mother and daughter, and makes teaching God's word easy in child's words. This book rates 5 stars and would make a lovely gift for your little one.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful book! November 4, 2004
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
After seeing another child with one of these books made for boys at a Sunday school class, I quickly found one for the little girls and their moms. I am so thrilled with this book. At the end of each story, the book gives you ideas (kind of like a suggestion for a conversation that relates to the story you just shared) to talk about with your daughter. This has helped me relate my life to my daughter's and teach her from my experiences. My daughter is five years old and this book has helped me see the world through her eyes. She totally "gets it" when I tell her stories of my life as a child that might relate to the particular story we read. My husband also likes to read these stories at night to her as well so it is not as if the book is written to exclude fathers.

The illustrations are very pretty and the stories are not too long or complex.

I like this book a lot. We ended up buying the other little book of prayers that goes along with this.

My 8 year old loves this book. It's a great way to encourage good behavior without nagging! Each story has kind of a what would you do scenario and talks about real life problems.
