Baby's Bible Friends (Baby Blessings)

Kids love animals, and the Bible is full of them! Baby’s Bible Friends, a sturdy board book with thick foam-filled pages, highlights different animals in the Bible. For example, we see Jonah’s whale and Peter’s fish swimming in a sea made with shiny blue stripes. Of course, animals from Noah’s ark, a camel, and our manger friends show up! Illustrated by Mandy Stanley, the simple, friendly pictures accented with colorful foil-wrap are sure to capture youngster’s attention. Each page holds only a few lines of large-print text—enough to briefly draw attention to the featured animal.

What I Like: The version I read had foil-wrap accents, which I found beautifully mesmerizing. I appreciate the durability of the book too. The concepts are very simple in presentation, yet can be used by parents explore the Bible story where the animal is found.

What I Dislike: The book does not give Scriptural references to coincide with the animals. Parents wanting to provide more information may need to have a Bible handy!

Overall Rating: Very Good

Age Appeal: The publisher lists 4-8, but I think the simple text and book format is better suited for the baby-preschoolers group.
