Back of book: “Read-Aloud Fun for Families” – Featuring lyrical stories that will make you laugh, this colorful collection is perfect for reading out loud. Magnificent Tales are rhyming Bible stories with clever art and clear lessons the whole family will enjoy. The stories and illustrations are so engaging that you won’t grow tired of reading a Magnificent Tale night after night? From “The Salty Tale of Noah’s Ark” to “The Lasting Story of the Last Supper,” the rhyming tales in this book remind us that God loves His people – in the Bible and today!
Review: This is an absolutely wonderful book and one that I highly recommend. “Magnificent Tales” includes well-known bible stories that most children will hear in Sunday School from both the Old Testament and New Testament -- Stories such as Adam & Eve, Noah’s Ark, Daniel and the Lion’s Den, Jonah and the Great Fish, and ending with the birth of Jesus, his death on the cross and his resurrection.
The artwork in the book further complements the rhyming method of the stories. The pictures are very colorful and just fun to look at. I really enjoyed the way the Bible stories were put to rhyme and it makes for very easy reading. You may recognize the style of this author (Kelly Pulley) because he is also the illustrator of The Beginner’s Bible.
Again, I recommend this book as a staple for anyone’s library and anyone who wishes to instill the Word of God in their children starting as early as birth. It’s never too early to read the Bible to our children! (reviewed by P.Howard)
