100 Bible Stories 100 Bible Songs is a bible/gift book for children. I think this book is appropriate for toddlers, preschoolers and elementary school aged children. The book has 100 bible stories , from the old and new testament, that are each only two pages long. Each story has the title, the song and the bible verse that corresponds with it. The stories themselves are short and simple, which I think is great to hold the youngsters attention. They typically are just one page long and then on the second page there is a beautiful illustration and the general lesson for that story. I really like how it is set up for the young learner. It would make a great first bible for toddlers and elementary age children. It would also be great for those just starting to read and in bible education classes. My children are enjoying having one story read to them each day. The illustrations are very cute, colorful and full of expression. The book also comes with 2 Cd's that have a total of 100 bible songs. There are many songs we have heard, and many that are new to us. My daughter has been enjoying listening to this as her bedtime music this past week.
