::My Thoughts::
This is a really fantastic book! We greatly enjoy this book and I highly recommend it to those with little ones! The title tells you exactly what you are going to get with this book. It is most definitely a read and share book. I was actually quite surprised by the size of it! It is definitely big enough to hold and read with your kiddos. The pages are thick enough to where you don't have to worry about little hands ripping the pages as they help turn them. It is a hardcover book, but the cover is puffy and soft. It seems like a very durable book, and my children always look forward to reading it. 
I love reading to my children, and love to read to them each day. Sometimes it can get a little hectic, but this book is perfect for those days because the stories really are only about five minutes each. It takes no time to fit in a story here or there during the day. Each story is only a couple of pages long, and the illustrations go along perfectly with each story. 
The illustrations are very colorful and sure to grab your little ones attention. Plus the stories are interactive with follow up questions and verses for your little ones. It is very fun, and a great devotional type book for kids! My children love answering the questions, and I love hearing their answers. That not only shows me how they have paid attention to the story, but it gets their minds thinking and wondering. Then we get to move onto the next story where they find out the answer, or we can start a discussion. It is really a lot of fun! And one of the truly great things on the path to being a good reader. 
More often than not we will read this book before bed. Bedtime stories always help my kids settle in, relax, and just kind of unwind. This book is great for morning, afternoon, or bedtime. Just whenever you want to fit it in. It's another reason why I highly recommend this book to those with young ones.
Another good feature of this book is that it is so easy for children to understand. Bible stories are the best stories. Sometimes, however, for younger children bible stories are a tad hard to absorb and understand. This is a great choice to get kids started on a journey to learning about the Bible. This book makes it so simple for them. Because the stories are short you can easily break between stories, or even read on as long as you would like. So it fits well for beginner readers and the younger ones whose attention doesn't hold as long just yet.
I think this would be a great addition into any parents, grandparents, and even Sunday School library! There is so much children can learn from this book! It opens up questions and discussions about God and Jesus, and is just enjoyable for all those who read it! There are 90 stories so there is plenty to read without worry of running out. Then when you have finished the book you can read again from the beginning or just pick your favorites!
