Not a complete Bible, Joy Melissa Jensen retells many well-known stories of the Bible in 365 brief sections. It is an attractive book with thick, glossy pages and colorful illustrations. Each reading lists the Biblical reference for the story, which is helpful for adults who may want to review the actual Scripture prior to sharing the lesson with a child. There is also an index at the beginning, so that a particular story can be readily found. It could be an excellent tool for starting the habit of a daily devotional reading with your child. There is a page at the end of the book with a few thought questions, additional reading and activities. More of this would have been a welcome addition.
Information about the book states the age range as 4-10. Although the stories are short, some of the vocabulary is better suited for the top of the range. Parents or teachers using it with younger students should be prepared to offer simple explanations for some of the words and concepts.
