Not what we were hoping for, at all,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Children's Bible in 365 Stories (Paperback)
I have bought this book for my 4.5 year old after having read all these awesome reviews as a surprise for the good effort at the per-school ...
Unfortunately, I have to admit I am rather disappointed and judging by the grim on my daughter's face she was not impressed either!...
As my daughter is very keen on all sort of books for children - she brings a new one from her school every other day and throughout the time we've managed to build a quite extensive collection, too. I have finally decided to introduce her to some religious reading at home.
The Amazon fulfillment was spot on, make no mistake there. However, the first thing that stroke me was the poor paper and print quality. In addition, the illustrations are far, far cry from impressive!!! I like a good print and have a keen eye for quality images, unfortunately this book doesn't offer neither of those! I was expecting stories well illustrated that sparks and inspire the 4.5 year old imagination keen to learn and explore. But instead, I think a 8 year old may find it difficult to get attracted by this Bible for Children...
To be entirely truth, we haven't read any of the stories yet as the book arrived this afternoon. So can't comment on the accuracy of the script, but I truly hope it will serve its purpose - other then that I strongly suggest to explore options in a local bookstore before buying any of these 'so amazingly portrayed' Bibles for Children... Quite disappointing considering hopes of a wide smile and 'hurray' from my daughter for as important print at this - she would normally do that while getting any other richly illustrated children's books with good stories...
