Really Woolly Bible Stories is a collection of 16 Bible stories, illustrated for young children and told in a few short stanzas of rhyme. Really Woolly Bible Stories is a great introduction to important bible stories for infants and toddlers. I appreciate the padded hardback nature of the book ensuring that it can tolerate a gumming by your youngster. Of course you know nothings fool-proof once your child gets those first teeth. None-the-less this book is set up for the usual wear and tear that accompanies an active nursery.
I feel that this book does a great job of balancing accuracy with age appropriate censorship. For example while covering the ten commandments the writer states, “Mind your parents, do not kill. If you we, your vows fulfill.” Which given in the context of infants and toddlers is a good introductory statement to what it means to commit adultery (break a promise that you made when you got married), without broaching a larger subject that is implied in the command.
I recommend Really Woolly Bible Stories to parent and grandparents of infants and toddlers. Your kids will enjoy the thick pages, the art work and hearing you rhyme the stories. Hopefully, along the way you will plan kernels of truth in the lives of the children you care about. The retail price is $9.99 (padded board book), and is available around the web in places like Amazon.com. I gave it four stars.
If you are looking for a really great Childrens Bible, check out the Jesus Story Book Bible. I can’t recommend it enough. We have read through ours several times now.
