My mom bought one of these to read with my son on his weekly sleepover and he loved it. I was borrowing it so much to use with our 2-3 yr old MOPPETs class, that I had to buy one for myself. It is just so easy to read and having the stories in verse makes it very enjoyable for young listeners (and readers). The illustrations are copious and show more detail than our other go-to Bible, The Beginner's Bible. Just perfect for preschoolers.
Publishers Weekly, 1996-07-29 Knowing how much children delight in the sounds of rhymed words and phrases, Sattgast casts selections from the Hebrew Bible and the New Testament into rhyming language aimed at helping children to remember each story's content as well as its religious message. For example, her version of why God commanded Noah to build the ark reads, in part: "God was very/ very sad,/ For all the people/ Were so bad./ They would cheat,/ And they would lie./ They would make their sisters cry." As for the conversion of Zaccheus in Luke 19, Sattgast writes: "But little Zaccheus/ Was changed that day./ All of the people/ Were happy to see/ That he wasn't the same/ As he used to be!" Goffe's comic strip-like watercolor illustrations accompany each rhymed story and feature smiling animals and wide-mouthed humans. Although Sattgast's rhymes are rather simplistic and uninspiring, many children ages 3-8 will find themselves repeating these stories. (Sept.)
