Review:

This adorable book is aimed at ages 4-7, and is perfect for nightly or morning devotional reading. The stories are literally 5 minutes worth of reading, include bright pictures to engage your child and end with a question for discussion. Even Miss Grace at age 8 thought the book was a fun way to add some bible stories to the day! The discussion questions are very short and ask your child to empathize with the characters and think what they would do and why. This helps to bring the bible into a more relatable reference for them, which is something as parent we all really want for our kids! Plus it's a quick test of reading comprehension, so it's also an educational activity- 2 for 1!

This is a lovely book and we highly recommend it for gift giving!
