What I think about...Read and Share: Stories about Jesus

Recently I was sent the children's book Read and Share: Stories about Jesus by Gwen Ellis to review for the BookSneeze program.  I absolutely LOVE getting new books for Little L (you should see her book collection) so I was excited to see this book is a big board book which means it can take the beatings that she sometimes dishes out on her books.  

Here is a description from the BookSneeze website about this book:

From the bestselling Read and Share® Bible, 13 stories from the life and ministry of Jesus Christ. These time-honored favorites include: The Man Who Ate Locusts, John Baptizes Jesus, Jesus Heals a Sick Boy, Jesus Brings a Girl Back to Life, Jesus Walks on Water, Jesus Loves the Children, Zacchaeus, A Blind Man Sees Again, Jesus Stops a Storm, One Lost Sheep, Jesus' Best Friends, One Man Says Thank You, and Jesus Goes to Heaven.

One of the things I like about this book is the fact that each story is only a page or two long which makes it just the right length to keep my 2 year old daughter's attention.  She isn't quite at the point for wanting to read through the whole book at once but it is set up quite nicely to be able to just read one or two stories at a time.  I think my favorite feature is the think about questions that they have after each story.  While they are a little too much for my daughter now (and some are a little bit much for even a 4 year old in my opinion), I think they will be great conversation starters in the near future! They are simple questions that really get to the heart of the story and help apply it to a toddler's life.  This is definitely a great addition to our book collection!
