"Growing in God's Love: A Story Bible by Elizabeth F. Caldwell; Carol A. Wehrheim is an illustrated book that pays attention to quality and detail. While it says it is a book that children can read, I believe it should be read to children.  I am impressed with this book, the wording, and I like how it is designed to be interactive between adult and child with three simple questions at the end of each story.

Most of the stories are between one and two pages counting the illustrations and three questions and start at the beginning of the Bible in Genesis and through the old testament and then into the new testament. The verse location in the Bible is given under the story title.

The author did a great job of covering Bible topics in a way that children can understand but in a way that adults can gain a blessing as well. 

I received an ARC from Westminster John Knox Press via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.

" The book is cute for children, but i do not see anything special, different from the other children books " said.

" For my granddaughter who is 8 years of age. She enjoys reading about the Bible stories . " said.

" Nice addition to a family library. It is however a read to a child book rather than a self reader. Author's interpretation of some stories may differ somewhat from what can be found in other books. Book copy received through a goodreads giveaway. " said.

"According to the author info, this book of Bible stories is geared towards 4-8 year olds. I don't really think so. I think it's geared toward adults to read to young children but so much would be too difficult for children themselves. I also didn't care for the amount of literary license that was taken with individual stories that changed so much in the stories they were trying to retell. I have found several sources that I feel do a much better job towards children understanding Bible stories and connecting them to todays life. One example would be the Alice in Bibleland series which is not only more accurate but also is more likely to capture the interest in young readers." said.

"During hard times we all need a little encouragement, one of the ways that i fight my battles is to pick up my bible and go to the Lords word. Sometimes though, i feel a little frazzled and I dont know where to begin reading. Then this little devotional came to me. Each devotional is fairy short, which is wonderful when you are having a hard time because you dont want to send a ton of time reading. I love the prayers, because when you are struggling its hard for words to come out to ask God what you are needing. I love the bible verses so you can dig a little deeper! This is an over all great devotional! I received this book for free from net galley and the publisher for exchange for my honest review. " said.

" While this book focuses on more than Noah's Ark, the cover art assumes that this horrible story is the gist of the love of the author's god: one who would drown everyone and every animal on the earth except for half of a dozen people and a select bunch of animals probably from the Middle East, and kill everything else because a few people in his town were bad. This is ridiculous. " said.
