My little Bible by Mary Hollingsworth
My Little Bible - Stories Retold by Mary Hollingsworth and illustrated by Diane LeFeyer is a tiny hand sized bible for preschoolers to carry around. The most notable feature of this bible is its small size. This hardcover book is 86 pages of selected shortened snippets of stories from both the old and new testaments. Well known stories are condensed to 3- 5 sentences a story. Each two page spread is dedicated to a story and a full color cartoon illustration. These simplified stories are perfect for very young children. I think preschoolers will enjoy carrying around their own little book of bible stories even if they can't read it on there own. The novelty of this small scale book will appeal to children. It has a padded hardcover, but the pages are think, and most likely won't hold up to heavy use. This book is a reprint from the 1993 edition. As a blogger for Booklook I received a copy of this bible published by Tommy Nelson for the purpose of writing this review.
