Egermeier's ABC Bible Storybook

ABC Bible Storybook takes some of children's most beloved Bible stories and tells them in alphabetical order. Written by Elsie Ergermeier, and illustrated by Laura Nikiel, this book will appeal to young ones learning their alphabet.

The layout of the book will appeal to young ones. Each page spread has the story, complete with Bible reference, on one side, and a vivid, full color illustration on the other side. The stories covered in this book are: Adam and Eve, Baby Jesus, Creation, David the Shepherd Boy, Elisha's Caring Friends, Fishermen, Good Samaritan, Hosanna, Isle of Patmos, Joseph, King Solomon,Lion's Den and Daniel, Moses and the Red Sea, Noah and the Flood, Onesimus Believes, Paul on the Road to Damascus, Quail for Whining People, Roof is Torn Up, Samuel Hears God, Ten Commandments, Upper Room, Victory Over Death, Woman at the Well, Xerxes the King, Young Child Made Well, and Zacchaeus Meets Jesus. This version of the book includes a CD which features the stories read with soft music in the background. My girls like to listen to it at bedtime.

What I Like: I like it that this book includes very familiar stories such as Joseph, and Daniel and the Lion's Den, as well as some stories that aren't as well known, like the Isle of Patmos and Onesimus.

What I Dislike: I don't dislike anything about this book. Just keep in mind that some of the stories are just tidbits, and may need some follow up to complete the story.

Overall Rating: Very Good

Age Appeal: 4-7, but younger children will enjoy having the stories read to them
