There are many things I love about blogging, but one of them is the opportunity to review different books and products that I wouldn’t have otherwise looked at. Occasionally, I find a real gem! And today’s book is one of those! I’m privileged to tell you about the Little Angels Bible Storybook by Roma Downey and Carolyn Larsen.
Bible storybooks are everywhere nowadays, and I’ve had quite a few around here. But this one will be read often! We love the illustrations, the summaries of the Bible stories, the applications, and the simple and quick activities that accompany each lesson/story.
I’ve been reading the stories of the New Testament since we’re in that time period in our history study right now. The kids I’ve been reading to are 4, 5, and 7, and they love it! They beg me to read more and more each time.

Here is what is says at the Tyndale site:
You love the Little Angels animated DVDs from Touched by an Angel star Roma Downey! Now children can read along with their favorite Little Angels characters as they experience 100 best-loved stories from the Bible. With each Bible story, kids will learn simple concepts such as numbers, letters, colors, basic life skills, and moral lessons. The 100 Bible stories include fun illustrations and simple activities to encourage imagination and challenge children’s cognitive skills. Also included are “life applications,” short prayers, and verses from the New Living Translation that kids will want to hide in their hearts forever! Parents, grandparents, children’s ministry workers, daycare staff, and anyone who wants to help young children build a solid faith foundation will find this book to be an amazing resource for encouraging kids to grow in God’s Word.
Thank you to Tyndale for providing me a copy of the Little Angels Bible Storybook to review. All opinions are my own.
