"Bible Stories That End With A Hug", created by Stephen Elkins and illustrated by Simon Taylor-Kielty

It's a blessing to find great books to share and treasure with our children. For me, I am now on the search for great reads for my grandchildren, who just love books. I have found one to share with you. "Bible Stories That End With A Hug" was created by Stephen Elkins and beautifully illustrated by Simon Taylor-Kielty. This is a wonderful gem to share with your little ones.

My grandchildren just turned ages one and two, so they are a bit too small to fully grasp the stories, but oh, what a great time to begin sharing. They will love the beautiful pages that are so wonderfully created they tell the story within them.  What I like is that each story is shared on two colorful pages. There are 75 Bible stories in this little gem of a book. Just perfect for little hands to hold. The stories are short and easy to understand. Leaving you room to share more of the story when your little ones are ready. I too love that a verse is shared with each story. This makes for a great start at memorizing scripture. Of course as the title indicates, each story ends with hug time, which makes reading together even more special.

This would be a terrific bedtime book to share one story each night. It too would be perfect for  just snuggling up on a snowy afternoon. It would be a great tool for a Sunday School lesson for tiny ones just starting out. I think your children will love this gem. The scripture shared is from the New Living Translation, which makes it easy to understand. I just can't share enough about how wonderfully bright and  creative the illustrations are for little eyes to enjoy.

This sweet book was a gift from Tyndale for sharing my review.
