Book Review | The Rhyme Bible Storybook for Little Ones

The Rhyme Bible
Storybook for Little Ones (formerly titled "for Toddlers")
L.J. Stattgast, with illustrations by Laurence Cleyet-Merle

Publisher:  ZonderKids
Genre:  Children's, Christian, Religious, Poetry
Released:  October 6th, 2015

The fun-time, anytime, read-aloud Bible rhyme!

Boys and girls love the soothing sounds of rhyme. Now toddlers have a rhyming Bible created just for them! From the story of creation to the resurrection of Jesus, this is the perfect choice for parents who want to introduce their toddlers to the Word of God. Joyful pictures and classic stories told in vivid verse make this a sure favorite that will entertain your young ones and teach them biblical lessons that last a lifetime.

What ho?  A children's book??  Why, as a matter of fact, yes!  And a board book, to boot! :D  I decided to expand my boundaries a wee bit, and being as I love rhymes and poetry, I thought, why not?  

Only forty pages long, this review will be rather brief.  Hahaha! You're probably sighing in relief: "Yes! A change for once!"  Oh please, give me a break!  My reviews are thorough for your sake, dear readers.  :]

Moving on. . .  This little book is rather cute and so very easy to read.  Perfect for little ones!  Each mini story begins with a title and the biblical passage where it is found.  For example, the creation story starts with "God Made Everything" and is referenced to Genesis 1 & 2.  These are followed by cute little rhymes and illustrations giving a brief summary of each particular Bible story.  I believe it to be a great way to introduce the littles to God's stories through rhyme.  

The only "issue" I had is simply a personal preference in that a small section of the rhymes were not consistent in rhyming styles.  But again, that's my personal opinion.  It would amount to nothing in the eyes of a little one.  I would still recommend!

Recommended ages: up to age 4

To each is given a bag of tools,
A shapeless mass, and a book of rules,
And each must make, ere life is flown,
A stumbling block or a stepping stone.
