The Candle Bedtime Bible is written in such a way as the stories are broken down by time. Either 3, 5 or 10 minute stories.
I like the idea of time especially before bed. If you have a tradition of reading to your child each night, the Candle Bedtime Bible is a nice choice. In the table of contents you will find the stories listed by time, starting with 3 minute stories and graduating to 10 minute stories.
The book covers 40 Bible stories from the old and new testaments. The illustrations are colorful and capture a young child’s attention. Each story is written in easy to understand words for the younger set.
At the end of each story the author lists the book of the Bible and chapters the story is taken from.
The recommended ages for this book is 3 to 5 years. The book is a nice large hardcover book.
