Treasury of the Bible: Book review

Children ages 4-8 will be delighted by these rhyming Bible stories pairing spiritual truths with playful illustrations. 

Featuring lyrical stories full of lighthearted moments, this colorful collection of Magnificent Tales is perfect for reading out loud. As families read these stories night after night, they will make memories together while learning about the Bible.

I took this great story book to the toughest critics, a group of our preschoolers! They absolutely loved it and wanted me to read more. For most kids, they love to be read to and  the illustrations are a major focus, this proved to be true in this experience. The kids actually wanted to re-tell the stores in their own words using the illustrations as guides. For any adult who teaches kids, this is an exciting response! It's clear that they heard you and understood it at their level. 

I was impressed that this treasury went a little more in depth than most. Sometimes the lack of content almost changes the story to something beyond recognition, Pulley did a great job keeping the basics of the story content in place without bringing in parts that they will need to grow into. Clearly, kids who hear these stories will be able to build on them as they grow and learn, rather than hear a new rendition or translation. 

I have happily given this book to our preschool department for use as a supplemental teaching tool, and have it on my list of recommended preschooler gifts! With Christmas just around the corner, this would make a great gift for any preschooler, or family with a preschooler you buy for and changes it up a bit from just another toy!

  1. Top-rated writing! I want to share a something bit.The Bridgeway Bible Commentary manages every bible based book in such a route, to the point that peruses promptly see the importance of the Bible in its own setting and its pertinence in today's reality. It s not one or the other an expression by-word specialized reference work nor a minor collection of outlines. It gives a free-streaming editorial on the whole content of every scriptural book, alongside foundation material, maps, outlines, drawings, tables and gimmick articles. Wintry greetings!!
