- Review by The IE Mommy
The cover is a soft, cuddly teddy bear! I actually didn't expect it to be quite so soft. Jax loves just carrying it around and hugging it almost like he would a real teddy bear. He just strokes the cover of it's face.
Inside are eleven popular stories from the Bible and illustrations to go with them. I really liked that one illustration was of the Bible story and one would be of Tiny Love and how the story affects him today. For example, in the story of Noah's Ark it shows Tiny Love with a rainbow over him and reminds him how God's promises are still true today.
I was a little bit disappointed in the color and tone of the pictures because I felt like they were kind of subtle and muted which doesn't make sense for a book targeted at babies and toddlers who respond to color. They were still cute and nicely depict the appropriate stories but I was surprised at how they didn't pop off the pages as much as I expected.
Any connection to the Bible at this age is important and the Tiny Bear's Bible is a clever way to do it. The soft cover will instantly draw them in and make them want to know what's inside! (Posted on 3/2/15)
- 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 2/19/15)
