This is one of the best books I have reviewed in a very long time! This beautifully put together 256 page book is directed towards kids age 4 and up, but you could easily read this to your child as young as newborn all the way up.There are 30 chapters full of colorful images , a section called THINK starting the chapter with a question EXAMPLE "The Key Question: How Will God Accomplish his plan?" following that question is a brief answer two paragraphs long. Following that there is the beginning of the story EXAMPLE " God Builds a Nation" In this chapter the first story is two pages long , followed by a page called Jump to Jesus. Same chapter second story "The holy Spirit Comes to Establish the Church " this story is three pages long , ending the chapter with a page " The Jesus Answer". The stories are very well written , I have a 9 year old and a 6 year old and I have read 5 chapters so far to them and they can't wait for bed time to hear more. I hope this review helps you with deciding if this is the right book for you, I know it was for my family.
My daughters and I rate this book a VERY High 5 stars! ★★★★★
