I rate this book 5 out of 5 stars.
With popular stories from both the old and new Testament such as David and Goliath, Jonah, The Good Samaritan and many others you and your child will enjoy reading, and re-reading for many days to come. The best part is, even the illustrations are cute.
You know how sometimes the story can be written well but the pictures just don't hold your little ones attention which leads to squirming and sometimes even early endings? Not going to happen with this book. From the cute little frog at the beginning to Adam and Eve hiding in the garden (Adam is upside down peeking out of a tree!) to the vineyard owner who looks vaguely French, your child is sure to be captivated while you read.

I have to admit I am not the biggest Dr. Seuss fan around, so it took me a couple of stories to warm up to this book. My 5 and 3 year olds on the other hand think it is great. However, this is a far cry from a literal retelling of God's Word. An excerpt from David and Goliath:
"My word!" said Goliath, "you are a good shot! I was going to duck, but I guess I forgot. Why is everyone spinning! Who turned out the lights? Is it nap time already? Oh well, nighty-night!"
I can see that some are not going to be in favor of such a liberal retelling. All I can say is that it grows on you and my boys like it. This would have been a great place to think up a clever rhyme, oh well!
I received this book free of charge from Barbour Publishing in exchange for an honest review.
From Goodreads: "If your kids love Dr. Seuss, they're sure to enjoy My BIG Book of Bible Stories--17 favorite stories, featuring hilarious rhymes and bright, fun illustrations, for preschoolers through early readers."
I LOVED this book!! I cannot recommend it enough for parents looking for a fun way to read the Bible to their kids. It starts with Genesis and tells each book of the Bible in fun verse. My son had so much fun with me reading it to him that every night he would beg for more! It wasn't just regular verse, either - the verses definitely reminded me of Dr. Seuss rhymes!
It wasn't just the verses that my son loved, though, it was also the illustrations! They were just as fun as the rhyming was, and they helped to get across the story that each verse was telling.
The rhyming and the illustrations combined to make this a must read for all parents who want to teach their kids the Bible in a way that they can relate to, and in a way that makes it easy for them to learn!! If you want your kids begging for more Bible stories, run out and get a copy of this book today :D
CONS: I own "Pet, feet, and fish to eat". I feel it's the best story from the author. Brings me to tears when I read it. Some of the beautiful illustrations were edited or removed to make it fit in this compilation book. Still a great book but I with it could have brought all of the same images as the single books have.
I read it to my 2 1/2 year old before bedtime. He likes it too. The pictures are great and I lkie the humor that is worked into the story.
The rhyming is very catchy and helps him remeber the story.
If you want to see it one of the stories read by Alister Begg you can see it on their ministry website. It will give you the flavor of the book and how it teaches, at a rudimentary level, the love of God and stories of our favorite Bible characters.
