- Review by Jamie
I really liked Tiny Bear’s Bible, but I love everything Sally Lloyd-Jones writes for children (author to the fabulous Jesus Storybook Bible and Thoughts to Make Your Heart Sing). In her classic fashion, Tiny Bear’s Bible is full of God’s promises little ones can trust and treasure in their hearts, right along with the beautiful illustrations (by Igor Oleynikov).
What are some of your favorite Easter gifts to give?
(Thank you to Zonderkidz for a copies of each book in exchange for my honest review)

- Review by Fitzysmom
The book comes in a boy or girl bear cover so you can customize it for the new little arrival. This little book is one that I wish you could somehow magically reach through the computer screen and feel. The fur is so soft. I can't seem to quit rubbing it. The inside pages are of the board book format so little hands can easily grasp and turn pages without harm.
The eleven stories inside are told in a rhyming style that is classic Sally Lloyd-Jones. When you include the beautiful illustrations from Igor Oleynikov you have a book that is sure to delight not only the child but the adult reading it. This book is destined to be a well-loved item that will introduce your baby to the One that loves him or her the most. (Posted on 2/19/2015)
