(I received this book from FlyByPromotions and was asked to listen to it and give my opinion. Full disclaimer below)
I got an email from FlyByPromotions about a new book coming out called “Treasury of Bible Stores – Magnificent Tales” and was asked to read it and give my review on it by way of blog post. I have a teenager, so I figured this book would be too young for him, but would be great to read and then give to his school. Mountain Christian School always loves great books like this to share with their students and I thought something like this would be perfect for story time, etc.
The book was great. The stories are written in rhymes and really keep your attention during the whole thing. Even for this “old kid”, it was great to read and enjoy. The artwork is absolutely amazing and I could so see this being made into a cartoon for the kids one day. It would be perfect to have them in a Dr. Seuss style that went with the rhyme and had the great artwork, etc. Just a thought author Kelly Pulley!! 🙂
Thanks to Laura Beth at FlyByPromotions for letting me get this book before it was released and to be able to share it with the kids in my area. I sure wish my son was still young enough to be able to sit on my lap and have me read him a story, but at this point, that would probably really hurt!! ha/ha
