Reviews - What do customers think about Little Boys Bible Storybook For Mothers & Sons?
Better than I expected! Aug 26, 2003
I recently purchased the bible storybook for mothers and sons as well as the book for mother and daughters for my 6 old boy and 3 year old girl. They are fantastic and appropriately written for boys and girls. My son was skeptical at first and said it was just going to be another bible book - "the same as what the teacher reads at school". Well, all it took was one story to get him hooked - last night he was begging me to read one more. They are wonderful books and I will soon be ordering another for my infant daughter to have when she old enough to understand. I would recommend them to all my friends and even purchase them as gifts.
Great intro to Bible Stories Jun 6, 2003
This book is wonderful! My 3 1/2 year-old son was so enthralled with the vibrant stories and fascinating pictures that he actually cried when I told him that we had read the last story! He asked to sleep with his special Bible.
No, the stories are not verbatim scripture, but it is a Bible STORY book -- not a Bible. The stories are told in such a way as to interest young boys and give them a general understanding of what the Bible tells us. I believe that making that connection at a young age will lead to a strong foundation and an interest in reading the Bible as he grows older. As for now we both cherish our special time reading alone together. I just bought the girls' verson for my daughter and can't wait to give her the same wonderful gift.
Does God like girls? May 8, 2003
Though the book is interesting because of its colorful pictures and descriptive text, take a look at what it teaches little boys about women. In the Adam and Eve story, Eve whines in order to get Adam to eat the fruit. Also, when Eve tries to defend herself after Adam has blamed everything on her, Adam won't let her speak, and she obeys. In the Genesis account, God encouraged Eve to tell her story. Though I have no sons (I came across this book as a topic for a children's literature paper.), I would not read this "Bible" to a little boy. There are so many other children's Bibles out there that stick closer to the biblical text and don't demean women.
Needlessly embellishes Scripture Aug 8, 2002
Yes, this book is cute and attention-grabbing - but at the expense of the accuracy of the Holy Scriptures. The stories are embellished to make the content more gripping to a young boy (e.g., David is urged to wear armor to fight Goliath, but tells Saul, "Get me outta this tin can! I gotta do this my way!"). We should neither add nor subtract from the Bible; an appropriate treatment for a young child might be to simplify the content. My fear was that my son might start recalling the Bible stories as they appear in the book rather than how they appear in the Bible, so I returned the book. I've given 3 stars because of the adorable drawings and well thought through exercises following each story. These could be used independently after reading the same story in a children's Bible.
A Wonderful Book To Share With Your Son Feb 10, 2000
This is a great book to share with the little boy you love. My three-year old enjoys listening to the stories and looking at the darling illustrations. He also has a good time searching for the small angel that is hidden in each picture. I especially enjoy the "Mom's Touch" and "Becoming A Man Of God" that follow each story. This gives my son and me a chance to talk about real life situations that relate to the story we've just read. I plan to give this book to my friends who have sons.
