Following the narrative of the Bible, this collection of 99 stories starts with At the Beginning, and covers a wide variety of key events, including Samuel Listens, Esther, A Blind Man Sees, and Jesus Walks on the Lake, through to One Day Jesus Will Return. Each story is told over a double page spread with vibrant illustrations and some full page art.

My take on this book:
99 Stories From The Bible is an eye catching collection of Bible stories that begins at the beginning with the Old Testament and goes on thru the New Testament telling such Bible stories as the creation of  Heaven and Earth including God's creation of all animals from the fishes in the sea to the animals that walk on the land. We learn of the first humans Adam and Eve and how God rested on the seventh day. So many Biblically accurate stories that will certainly help youngsters learn about the Bible in easy language that they can understand! A few things that really stood out for me was the handy presentation page and the table of contents that makes it so easy to turn to a particular story.  Sturdy construction will make this a book that should stand many little hands using it! I feel like this book would make a wonderful gift, perfect for incorporating into a child's daily reading or even handy to use when teaching Sunday School. The wonderful Bible stories were a joy to read and the colorful illustrations put a smile on my face!

A complimentary copy of this book was provided for review.
