365 Great Bible Stories marks a milestone for Carine Mackenzie as it is her 150th book. Carine's talent as a writer and her commitment to sharing the gospel of Jesus Christ with young children shines through here as it does in her many other works. Although the book is titled 365 Great Bible Stories, there are actually 366 readings with the final reading bringing everything to a close by explaining how the Bible is the best book of all. Each of the 366 readings is approximately one page in length, making them short enough to hold the attention of even young children with limited attention spans. While I have been using this book for readings with my younger children at bed time, I could see it being equally as useful for devotional reading with your family at the meal table or for any other devotional time your set aside throughout the day. Each of the readings ends with a section noted by red text that is titled either "think" or "pray". These little snippets give parents the opportunity to help their children reflect on what they have just read, helping to reinforce the main point of the reading.
A unique feature worth noting in 365 Great Bible Stories is the use of five key images throughout that will allow you and your children to identify at a glance whether the story you are about to read is related to one of five key Biblical themes. The image / theme correlations are as follows:
* Lamb - Jesus Christ and Salvation
* Winding Road - Traveling and Journeys
* Open Scroll - God's Word
* Sword - Wars and Battles
* Dove - The Holy Spirit
I think this could be especially helpful for newer readers and non-readers to more readily understand how certain stories fit in with the key themes and topics of the Bible.
The book itself is a sturdy hardcover with a solid binding, which is always important for any book that is going to be handled over and over again by young children. There is a single ribbon marker that will allow you to keep your place as you work through the book. I was especially excited about this as I have put numerous bookmarks in our children's Bibles, only to have them quickly pulled out by a toddler. For some reason they seem to leave the ribbon makers alone, so this may help me to retain some of my sanity as I try to figure out where we left off reading the night before. 365 Great Bible Stories has become a mainstay in our home this year for our end of day devotional reading and was a fast favorite with my children. I heartily recommend it for reading to children of any age, but feel it would be most appropriate for children in the range of ages 4-10.
