A Bible storybook especially for young children who always have a teddy bear at storytime, with a padded cover
The 12 favorite retellings included in this collection are chosen to emphasize the message of God's love and care. Each story concludes with a blessing, prayer, or reflection which is illustrated with the child and the teddy bear together. Children will love the endearing illustrations which will help them to relate easily to the stories and prayers, making for a perfect snuggle-up storytime. The 12 stories are In the Beginning, Noah and the Ark, Baby Moses, David and Goliath, Jonah Learns a Lesson, Daniel and the Lions, Jesus is Born, Jesus the Teacher, The Story of the Sower, The Lost Sheep, The Farmer's Son, The Man in the Tree, The Good Samaritan, and The First Easter.

My thoughts on this book:
A child is never to young to be introduced to God's word and "Bible and Prayers for Teddy and Me" is sure to teach them some of the most important stories in the Bible by capturing their  eye with the brightly colored illustrations, which will certainly bring each story to life, and the fact that each story ends with a prayer makes them extra special. The hardback cover is cushioned, making it easy for young hands to help hold as they listen to the wonderful stories that is going to tell them of God's love for them. The perfect book to read at bedtime or anytime your youngster feels like listening to a story, I can just imagine that this will become one of their go to books whenever they want to hear a story. I personally think this book would make a wonderful shower gift for the mother to be, so that she will have it when her young one finally arrives but it's also perfect for anyone who has a youngster in their life. I love that there is a presentation page so that the book can be personalized. I think "Bible and Prayers for Teddy and Me" will become a beloved treasure that just might become something that is passed down to the next generation! I already know a special youngster that is going to get her own copy.

A complimentary copy of this book was provided for review.
