"Bible Stories that End with A Hug" is an adorable children's book written by Stephen Elkins and illustrated by Simon Taylor-Kielty. This book is the ideal Bible story book for young children - I would say ages 3 and up. This book offers over 60 stories for kids that simplifies main stories found in the Bible. Each story gives the relevant Bible verse for the story, and then a short, easy to read synopsis of that Bible story. Short enough for young children to understand without losing interest.
The vocabulary used in the Bible stories in this book are perfect for young children - easy to understand language, and small words that allow kids to understand what is being said. After the story, there are a couple of questions that children would ask, and answers that are based on what we learn in the Bible.
The illustrations in this book are absolutely beautifully done. Colorful, vibrant, and entertaining - they will draw children in! Each story ends with a big hug for the child, as well, which I thought was a really cute idea, as well.
Overall I would give this book a 5/5. Perfect for the age group, beautiful illustrations, and based on sound Biblical principles. Loved it, and so did my four year old!
