My Little Library of Bible Stories

This collection of 12 books is conceptually wonderful. Each of these three inch by three inch board books covers an important aspect of the Bible. There's one book for baby Jesus, another for Jesus' adult life, a book for various Bible heros, one devoted to the creation, one for The Lord's Prayer, and books for Daniel, David, Esther, Jonah, Joseph, Moses, and Noah.

What I Like: The concept. The small size is also nice for infants and toddlers.

What I Dislike: The illustrations are unimaginative, for the most part. Some are colorful, others are pretty bland. The text is clunky, dry, and often very wordy for young children.

Overall Rating: Poor.

Age Appeal: According to the publisher, 3 - 6.
