My Thoughts: First I have to say that my grandson loves "reading" this book. He's 2. When he comes over, he'll grab this Bible and have fun opening the tab that keeps the book shut, looking at the pages, then closing the book with the tab. I believe he thinks he's a big boy being able to do it all himself. The pages are thicker than a regular book, but not as thick as a normal toddler book. Two to six sentences are surrounded by nicely colored pictures to tell the Bible story. The verses where you can find the whole story in a regular Bible are included. I enjoyed reading this Bible storybook with my grandson.
