The stories of Eve, Miriam, Hannah, Mary, and many more will delight children and remind them of the bond they can share with God, just like the women of the Bible.AMAZON 5 STARS
What a lovely, lovely book. Such a tender attitude that comes through. The illustrations are beautiful and feminine; pleasing to the eye. Each Bible story has a personal note attached where you can add the girl's name to make it even more personal. All done in a quality kind of way, no cheap feel to it at all.
Now I have to be honest, it did give me a bit of a hesitation when I read some of the stories and they weren't 100% accurate according to scripture. But what a good starting point if you want to start a conversation about the Bible. Why not use it as a jumping off point to go deeper into the Bible itself? Why not say to the reader, " You know this is great but there is more to the story. Why don't we look it up together in the Bible and see more about it.?" Or if you know your Bible, you could add more truth about each story. Just a thought.
On a side note this is a really big sized book, in case you didn't notice in the description.
I received a complimentary copy of this book via Handlebar and my reviews did not have to be positive.
(But what a delight that it is a positive review. I am now trying to think of who to gift this book to.)
