Most Helpful Customer Reviews
These books are good and sturdy. The stories are good and fairly accurate, but a little wordy for the size of the book and the age of the child, in my opinion.
In the Moses book they say Moses "hurt" someone rather than killing him and in the Jesus book they say "The people hurt Jesus and then put him on a cross, and soon Jesus was gone" rather than saying Jesus died. Not sure if I fully agree with it, but as it's for babies I don't really have a problem with it either. Our bibles for the older toddlers and kids do use the more correct and accurate words "die" and "kill", so I'm not gonna worry about a "first" bible when the baby doesn't really understand anyway.
The images are okay and for a young child the books are fine, but I have some issues with how they condensed the stories down to fit into the book.
For example the book says Moses ran away because he could not live with what he had done (he beat up an Egyptian who was beating an Israelite) and became a Shepard. That's not really how I remember it.
I guess maybe you have to make decisions about how to word the stories because the full legnth versions contain a lot of violence, but I guess I would have emphasized other parts of the biblical stories.
Not what I expected. Too many words for babies. It's great for 3 years old and up.
