Book Review: Bible Stories that End with a Hug

Bible Stories That End with a Hug is such a wonderful book to read to your children, grandchildren or other children you may care for. It helps children (as well as adults) learn stories from the bible and encouraging positive growth and sharing special moments through hugs. 

Bible Stories That End with a Hug was created by Stephen Elkins and was illustrated by Simon Taylor-Kielty. The book contains 75 bible stories as well scripture passages from a different part of the bible that the story. Each story teaches a lesson that can be applied to a child's daily life. 

The book is listed as for ages 2+ and I would agree with that. Both my 3 year old and 6 year old enjoyed listening to the stories. I would think that it would be a nice storybook for ages 2-6, maybe 7. 
 I saw a picture that looked similar to this one I took and inspired me to take my own picture of a heart in the book. I thought this book would perfectly be illustrated with a heart.

Also, here is a short clip of me reading one of the stories to my children. As you will see it took about a minute and a half to read one story, so this book provides the perfect opportunity to read as many or as little stories as fit in to your allotted time.

Tyndale House Publishers has provided me with a complimentary copy of this book for the purpose of review. No monetary compensation was received.
