Review

As you can see the illustrations in this book are just lovely! They are bright and full of charm, that easily entrances younger kids to turning pages. You get 28 stories- 14 from the Old Testament, and 14 from the New. As you can see, they are perfect for family reading, or for young readers to read on their own.

The book is a lovely reminder that god's angels are always with us as well. The author lets us see how powerful these messengers from God are, and how they helped make the bible as we know it. If you have the Angels Devotional book, also from Zonderkidz, for older kids, this book book would be a lovely addition to it, for family scripture reading and discussion, Together they would be a great start to an eyeopening look at the bible! We highly recommend it!
