The Miracles of Jesus Read-Along Storybook

I've searched high and low for CDs with read-along books that go with them; they are difficult to find, but The Miracles of Jesus by Larry Carney fits the bill nicely.

Written in rhyming text, the book covers such miracles as the healing of the ill, the calming of the sea, the feeding of 5,000, and Jesus walking on water. The text ends:
"These miracles and others, too,
Did Jesus Christ Our Savior do.
And now forever, He lives on
With promise of eternal dawn."
Throughout, the book features traditional cartoon illustrations by Enrique Vignolo. The CD is nicely narrated by Nigel Lambert and ends with Christian songs - all upbeat in tempo and many with a country feel - sung by adults.

What I Like: My 5 year old loves this CD and book combo and uses it regularly. I like the set because it's biblically accurate and very affordable.

What I Dislike:
I think the musical part of the CD is slightly annoying. The volume is considerably louder than the section that narrates the book. Also, the illustrations of Jesus are a little odd. He has a long, thin mustache, a thin beard, and very wide eyes. But my daughter doesn't mind any of these things.

Overall Rating: Very Good.

Age Appeal: The publisher doesn't have a recommendation, but I'd say 2 to 8.
