My own children had an older kids' version of this book illustrated by Kelly Pulley. I love his pictures and right away I recognized his style. This book "The Beginner's Bible: Stories about Jesus" is a padded board book with several of the stories of Jesus simplified for one to three year olds. The stories in the book include: Baby Jesus is Born, Fishers of People, Jesus Calms the Storm, Jesus and the Children, Jesus Feeds Thousands, Jesus Heals a Blind Man and The Easter Story. Each story is told in just a few pages with plenty of pictures. The print is good sized so that a young reader could read it or a little toddler could listen to one short story or more if his or her attention span could handle more.
I think this is a great starter book to introduce little ones to Jesus and the stories of the bible. I know I would buy it for a one to three year old since I bought a more advanced version for my kids when they were in elementary school.
