The illustrations are colorful and eye-catching, done in a cartoon-like manner, sure to hold a young child’s interest.
What I Like: I like the variety of verses and the easy way you can find a verse about a particular topic in the Index.
What I Dislike: Although the text is written in a simple, straight-forward manner, the book itself is cumbersome. It has a board book cover and heavy-weight paper pages to hold up for extended use. The book is nearly 400 pages (with each all the verses and the Index). This makes it quite thick and heavy. I don’t think children ages 3-5 will find the book very user-friendly without a lot of help from someone else.
Overall Rating: Good.
Age Appeal: 3-5.
