I bought this book and two others in the Big Thoughts for Little Thinkers series. My toddler loves to be read to and I'm always looking for Christian books that have some substance without being too wordy. These books are carefully thought out in terms of explaining their subjects, but they are essentially textbooks for children. The illustrations are extremely base - nothing that would hold the interest of someone younger than four. The wording attempts to be simplistic and I applaud that, but there is too much text per page for again, anyone under four. If you decide to purchase these books in hopes that your preschooler will enjoy them, I would keep looking. I wish I would have paid attention to the suggested age range of 4-8; not only does my child not "get it", he gets restless at the lack of engaging pictures and the amount of time we have to spend on one page to get through all the text. I still give it four stars because they would be great learning tools for kindergarten-aged children, but not what I was looking for.

The Scriptures, part of the Big Thoughts for Little Thinkers series, attempts to explain to young children what the Bible is and why it's important in our everyday lives.

Author and illustrator Joey Allen begins the book by having Gabe, a lively and friendly little boy, introduce himself. "The Bible is the most important book in the whole world!" Gabe says.

Gabe asks readers to consider what life would be like if our parents never spoke to us, or never taught us to tie our shoes or say our ABCs. Then he asks us to consider what it would be like if the one who created us never spoke to us and never told us how best to live. "But God has spoken!" Gabe exclaims. First, he points out that creation can tell us some things about God. Then he says we can learn even more about God by reading the Bible.

Gabe explains that the Holy Spirit directed specific people to write the Bible. He describes the tone of the Old Testament and says the "entire Old Testament points to" a Savior, who would come in the future.

"When Jesus came to earth, He showed us what God is like. Jesus acted like God and talked like God because He is God! When we learn about Jesus in the Bible, we are learning about God."
Gabe explains that "people who believed in Jesus gathered together all the books that come from God" and put them in one book, called the Bible. He tells us about 40 people wrote the books of the Bible, including a fisherman, a doctor, and a farmer. He explains that the Bible wasn't written in English originally, but that God protects the message of the Bible, no matter how many languages it's been copied into.

Gabe explains that God always tells the truth and always keeps his promises.

Joey Allen's "Big Thoughts for Little Thinkers: The Gospel" offers a kid-friendly approach to teaching the truth of the Bible to young children. This book is a wonderful tool for parents and teachers who want to build a Christian foundation in their child's life at an early age.

The character Gracie talks directly to your child throughout the book and addresses fundamentals about God's unending love, how our sins separate us from God and how Jesus took the punishment for our sins so we can be reconciled with God. The words used are simple and stated in a way that young children can relate. My four-year-old son listened attentively and asked me questions throughout the book, which indicated to me that he grasped the concepts presented. The illustrations are uncomplicated and endearing and kept my two-year-old interested as we read the book in its entirety. At the bottom of each page, scripture references are provided for further reading.

This book provides an excellent starting point for parents and teachers to proclaim the Good News to the youngest listeners.

These books are great! The illustrations are amazing and the characters will capture your heart while teaching children the truths about God. They make a perfect gift for any child or a unique baby shower gift for those who are expecting. Joey has not only presented the truth of God in easy to understand books, but his illustrations really come to life. I love them all!

Be sure to read the Forward and Afterward to Parents in this book. It is a great message to adults as well!
