I received a free copy of "101 Bible Stories from Creation to Revelation" illustrated by Dan Andreasen from Zondervan in order for me to review it as part of the ZonderKidz Z Blog Squad.
The book has a nice sturdy cover with glossy pages. It takes stories from the Bible and tells them in a child friendly and easy to understand way. Each is no longer than a page in length and each is accompanied by an illustration. Dan Andreasen's pictures look like watercolor paintings and enhance the stories.
This book would be wonderful to read to younger kids or for elementary students to read for themselves. There is a presentation page for it to be used as a gift and I think that would be a wonderful thing to give to a child.
As soon as the book came in the mail, my 8 year old daughter grabbed it and read it straight through! She wanted to write her own review, which is as follows:
