Synopsis: A wonderful inspirational treasury of beloved prayers, stories, hymns, Bible
passages, and more--collected in a beautifully illustrated hardcover edition destined to become a classic. A must-have for every family!

Review: Timeless biblical stories are lovingly brought to a child's level in this read-aloud treasury. Editor William Bennett (The Children's Book of Virtues) starts with "Daniel in the Lion's Den," a story that epitomizes the courage it takes to stand firm in one's faith. While he also includes the story of "The Little Lost Lamb" (based on Luke 15: 3-7), Bennett is broad-minded enough to include numerous other stories that touch upon the meaning of faith without being biblical in origin. For instance, young readers will be exposed to great writers such as Leo Tolstoy in the short story "Where Love Is, God Is" and Oscar Wilde in "The Selfish Giant." Although the old-fashioned style of illustrations will no doubt feel nostalgic for some, they are also a throwback to a time when white folks were the only people represented in children's Christian literature. Even Moses has light skin. One of the few characters to actually have color in his face is the bald, brown-skinned devil. A shameful lapse in an otherwise noble attempt.
