Melody (age 7)
What the book is about: It is the stories in the Bible. It is about God’s Word.

Emily (age 5)
What the book is about: It is about heaven and love and sharing.
Like: I like the David story.
Dislike: I didn’t like when David hit Goliath because I like everyone in the world and I don’t want anyone to get hurt, but he got hurt, and I am wondering if he is still alive.
Recommend: My family should read this book.
Notes from Melody and Emily’s mom:
The Treasury of Bible Stories contains 20 Bible stories, and it draws you in even from the Table of Contents, with titles like Tricked by a Snake, A Silly-Sounding Plan, Daniel for Lunch, and The Good Dunking. If you have been around kids, you know that any rhyming book is just an excuse to rap. Well, it’s my excuse anyhow. :p Your kids will think you are the coolest (or the weirdest) when you bust a rhyme while reading these Bible stories to them. But I really do like the rhyming, and I think your kids will too. The illustrations are wonderful and colorful, except the eyeballs and elbows are a little odd to me. I only noticed the elbows after another reviewer mentioned it. :p While we are a bookworm family, Emily will usually only pick up a book if she is really interested in it or if it is “reading/quiet time”. Just yesterday I noticed that the girls were really quiet after dinner (this is not usual), so I looked to see what they were doing. They were reading. This is typical of Melody who would take walks, eat meals, or brush her teeth reading a book if we let her. I figured they were reading books from the library because we had gone that morning to check out new books, but Emily was actually reading the Treasury of Bible Stories. This means this book is pretty awesome!
