    I borrowed this book from my mom a few weeks ago for a primary lesson I was teaching (because I am a rebel and don't always follow the recommended lesson plans) and then just read it straight through today, because...I could. The pictures are wacky, definitely old school, and all done by different people. There is little consistency. Characters change looks, sometimes in the middle of the story, but more often just from story to story. And this book is unintentionally funny in many ways with how I borrowed this book from my mom a few weeks ago for a primary lesson I was teaching (because I am a rebel and don't always follow the recommended lesson plans) and then just read it straight through today, because...I could.

Characters change looks, sometimes in the middle of the story, but more often just from story to story. And this book is unintentionally funny in many ways with how choppily it is written in trying to make it readable by/to small children. I remember when I was a small child I didn't like this book because of the pictures and how it was set up. It does have some good stories in it, though it is by no means extensive and there are many great stories it does Not have, probably because they are not "child appropriate". But no Hezekiah defying the Assyrians? Really? That story is awesome! (I also enjoy the story of Ehud and Eglon but there is no wondering why THAT story isn't in here, and the story of Asa though that is so small it wouldn't fit this format at all) Anyway, a funny little primer. I didn't like it as a child, but it was a pretty fun and quick read this morning.

    My boys and I read this every morning before school these past few months. It's been a good learning experience. Lots of discussions happened and my boys were very engaged in learning the stories and about how God worked with people in ancient times. We used to read in the car, because they could pay attention better since there were no distractions. Then we started reading in the auditorium so they could eat breakfast as we read. Soon their friends and other children joined us. Now we have a gro My boys and I read this every morning before school these past few months. It's been a good learning experience.

    I. LOVE. THIS. BOOK. SOOOOOOO. MUCH. A winner of a resource that I will always turn to. The gospel is simple. And the story of Job was especially enlightening and memorable . . .

    I read this along with my daughter. She did most of the reading, and I only helped her to identify names or words that were new or difficult to pronounce.

    Man, I hate to give something based on The Holy Bible less than 5 stars.... But man... Pro: * They picked the good stories. Cons: * I was NOT a fan of the illustrations. Ick. * I get that they dumb the language WAAAAAAAAAAY down for small children, but it reads like See Spot Run! You can simplify things elegantly. You don't have to have 5000 3-word sentences that remind you of Santokus, they're so choppy! Dislike.

(And I'm not just saying that because there's a cute baby Jesus in it!)

    I read this book to fulfill the goal "read a book with a great cover" (full disclosure: i don't know as i think the cover is all that great, but i wanted to cross a book off of my challenge list). i really enjoy reading these scripture stories to my kids. they are the perfect length for their short attention spans, and stick pretty closely to the originals in the bible. my only complaint is that sometimes, their sentance style is a bit choppy making it hard to read aloud. by adding a few but's a I read this book to fulfill the goal "read a book with a great cover" (full disclosure: i don't know as i think the cover is all that great, but i wanted to cross a book off of my challenge list). i really enjoy reading these scripture stories to my kids. they are the perfect length for their short attention spans, and stick pretty closely to the originals in the bible. my only complaint is that sometimes, their sentance style is a bit choppy making it hard to read aloud. by adding a few but's and and's though, you can get around that pretty easily.

    Luisa: My favorite stories were Moses parting the Red Sea, The Three Miracles of Elisha, Samuel as a boy, and Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego. Second Read by Luisa: My favorite stories are when King Solomon judges the two mothers with the baby, and when Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego were faithful even though it was dangerous. I also liked the tower of Babel, and the story of Joseph who was sold into Egypt. I like a lot of the stories. Eli and Samuel was another good one.

    Finished reading this with my 9 year old. She's a great reader but I have been struggling at studying/reading the Old Testament with my 13 yr old and by myself as an adult that I decided that this would be the best route for the younger daughter. She normally fights scripture time but after finishing this it has sparked a new excitement in her. The key with her was to do separate reading with her than with her sister. It makes it double the work for us but it's doable since we only have 2 childr Finished reading this with my 9 year old.

    It would be nice if this book was redone. The pictures are really old and obviously nit done by the same person. The stories are good, but some of the descriptions were a bit long winded. Otherwise great. 4 1/2 stars.

    Read this just because I had to for school, I'm an atheist so the book doesn't mean much to me. I haven't read this version, but more appropriate version couldn't be found, so I'll stick to this one..

    These are a great way to introduce Bible stories to the young ones. The illustrations are great and engaging enough to hold a young ones attention while reading the story. My boys love to look at these while we read scriptures.

    Could have been 3 times longer, since it is no way inclusive of all the old testament stories. Still, a nice overview.

    These are available for free electronically on the LDS Gospel Library App including the audio! I loved these as a kid and would listen to them in bed at night.

    Great overview of the Old Testment. Who doesn't need to enlarge theirs understanding of the Old Testament in a basic way. Read it via the IPad in Gospel Library.

    very brief, and was missing some really good stories from the old testament. But I assume the authors were going for a G rating.
