As a mom of 6, a children's ministry volunteer for most of my teen, college, & early married years, followed by 14 years (and counting) of vocational children's ministry, I have owned and read many children's devotionals. The Beginner's Gospel Story Bible has just become my favorite story Bible for young children--if I could give it more than 5 stars, I absolutely would do so. The illustrations are large, with a bright color palette. The stories are simple, yet full of clarity and truth. The stories present God's Word, connect the points to our own lives, and then ask a question making it even more personal for our children. I have really enjoyed reading this to my 5 year old son and 3 year old daughters, and have had our reading match what they have been learning in church. I think slightly older children will really enjoy reading this on their own, too, as the typeset is big enough for a grade schooler to see and understand. If you are looking for a great Christmas, birthday, or child dedication gift, I highly recommend this book.
