Rhyme Bible Storybook for Toddlers: A Book Review

By L. J. Sattgast, illustrated by Laurence Cleyet-Merle 

Published by Zondervan

Book Description

Children love the soothing sound of rhyme! And now they can enjoy ten classic Bible stories retold in delightful read-aloud rhyme in The Rhyme Bible Storybook for Toddlers. From the story of creation ("In the beginning God made the light. The light was for day. The dark was for night.") to the resurrection of Jesus ("All his friends were happy then. Jesus was alive again!"), this is the perfect choice for parents who want to introduce their toddlers to the Word of God. Newly updated illustrations and classic stories told in vivid verse make this padded cover board book a sure favorite that will entertain young ones and teach them biblical lessons that last a lifetime.

My Thoughts

My intentions were to obtain this book to use with my 2-year old daughter.  From the very moment I took it out of the box, she recognized that it was her type of book (IE. for small children).  The pages are bright but not in an overly busy sort of way.  Each story covers a few pages, the rhyming aspect is done well in all the stories except perhaps one, it was a little stretch that those words rhymed.  The best part is that the rhyming aspect has already had my daughter trying to memorize the words.  We have used this book every day for over a week, she often handles it when we are not sitting down together to read it.

My only complaint would be that I wish they had only done a two-page spread for each small story and then included more stories.  Even with that, it is the type of item I would purchase for a gift.
