Reviews - What do customers think about Tiny Bears Bible - Girl?
Nice text and beautiful illustrations, but an odd combination Sep 22, 2007
Tiny Bear's Bible is the newest offering from Sally Lloyd-Jones, author of three best-selling children's Bibles. Its novelty is found in the fur. Both front and back covers are wrapped in a thick, soft bear's fur.
Inside readers find eleven Bible stories told through rhyming verse. A distinction between this children's Bible and all others is the voice. Each Bible story is one or two paragraphs (typically four stanzas long) followed by one paragraph (two to four stanzas) of application, spoken directly to Tiny Bear.
Here is chapter list showing the included stories:
God Makes the Whole Wide World, Genesis 1-2 God Promises to Rescue Noah, Genesis 6-9 God Keeps Moses Safe, Exodus 1-2 David Fights a Horrible Giant, 1 Samuel 17 God Protects Daniel in the Lions' Den, Daniel 6 Jesus Is Born, Luke 2 Jesus Stops a Scary Storm, Mark 4 The Lord's Prayer, paraphrase of Matthew 6 The Friend of Sinners (Jesus befriends Zacchaeus), Luke 19 God Makes Jesus Alive Again!, Matthew 27-28 "I am with you always", Mark 10
What I Like: The illustrations by Igor Oleynikov are so unique! They are filled with colors, but the style sets them apart from from all other children's books. They are sophisticated, somewhere between a stippled design and impressionism. As a former art student, I was quite taken by them. My son loves the fur! He has been hesitant to read through many children's Bibles, but he loves this one. I appreciate the applications with each story. It forces parents and children to think about what the stories means for us today. I also applaud the inclusion of biblical references with each chapter.
What I Dislike: Between the fur, the text and the illustrations, this book seemed inconsistent to me. After playing with the outside, the inside completely surprised me. The outside is cutesy; the inside is not. It seems an odd combination to me. Also, I felt the Bible stories were simplistic and incomplete. There is never any explanation of why these things happened.
Age Appeal: Infant - Preschool (Reading level is grade 6 and above.)
Overall Rating: Good.

Precious way to introduce bible stories to little ones! Sep 21, 2007
I purchased 2 of these and couldnt be more pleased. My 10 month old nephew loves the fuzzy cover and enjoys the the stories being read to him. The other went to our 3 year old cousin. It is very age appropriate and is a wonderful way to introduce the Bible. This is my new baby gift, I will give one to every child I know.
