The Treasury of Bible Stories: Rhythmical Rhymes of Biblical Times from the Magnificent Tales Series is one of my kids new favorite books to read and have read to them during the day as well as at bedtime! This book has done a good job in taking many well known Bible stories and has broken the stories down for kids in an fun and easy to understand way.
My first thoughts about glancing at this title is that it is a very nice treasury of stories and I wasn’t wrong. The book is strong hardcover and 351 pages in length. There are 17 Bible stories which include focus on several characters as well as a few parables such as the story of the Good Samaritan & The Wayward Son. Children will learn about Adam & Eve, Noah, Moses, Jesus, David, Esther, and many more. Each story begins with a title and mention the Biblical scripture each is based upon. The illustrations are very colorful and do well to capture the attention of reader and listener. My kids loved the illustrations and would stop me from turning the page till they were done taking in every detail!
The lyrical rhythm and rhyme to the writing is ever so simple to read. I started reading these to my children and then caught my six year old daughter reading these on her own and to her brother. My son got pretty excited when he saw the burning bush in the story of Moses. He told me he learned about that in church! I’m so glad he’s making connections and I can reinforce what he’s learning in his class here at home too. Honestly, these stories really are a great gateway for conversation if your child tends to have any questions. We’ve been talking about even those these things seem pretty amazing that they really did happen long ago!
This is a great book for children age 4-8 years old in getting them interested to learn more about God and what we can learn from those mentioned in the Bible. It would make a nice gift or the next perfect read for those evening Bedtime Stories. My kids said they really liked it and they’ve picked this one up numerous times throughout the day to take in. That’s a real winner, if you ask me.
