My Thoughts

75 Bible Stories starting with Genesis 1, In the Beginning and the last story from 2 John 1:4-6, Love One Another.  Every bible story ends with Hug Time.  They will store up these stories and verses in their heart forever.  The illustrations will be pleasing to the child because the characters in the bible stories are illustrated as childlike images.  They will relate the story you are reading, to the illustrations they see. 

Cuddle up with your child while you read them a bible story.

This book provides a little lesson in each story to peak the child's imagination and encourage them to share  their opinion and to ask questions about the story. Children will easily memorize verses and will want to repeat and share the stories from Bible Stories that End with a Hug!  Make sure you don't forget the HUGS.

I can't wait to share this book with my grandbabies.  I have no doubt the children will be very animated and will end the story-time with big HUGS and kisses. 

I highly recommend this book.

I rated this book 5 hugs out of 5 hugs.
