Bible Stories That End With a Hug! (+ Giveaway)

TITLE:  Bible Stories That End With a Hug!
AUTHOR:  Stephen Elkins
ILLUSTRATOR: Simon Taylor-Kielty
PUBLISHER: Tyndale Kids

 About the book:Little children love getting—and giving—hugs! Hugs generate warmth, affection, and a feeling of acceptance. Show your little ones just how much you treasure them while teaching them about the Bible and God’s unconditional love for his creation. Bible Stories that End with a Hug! features 75 easy-to-understand Bible stories with charming illustrations, lessons on how to apply the stories to your child’s daily life, memory verses from the Holy Bible, New Living Translation, and a special “Hug Time” during which you can share a great big hug with your child.

My thoughts:
I enjoyed reading this book. It would be nice for a family to read together at bedtime with a very young child (toddler--preschool). There are stories from the Old and New Testament. What I liked was that this story book had some stories that I don't normally see in children's Bible story books. I like also that each one ends with a reason to give a hug to your child! The illustrations are sweet too, and I liked the layout with the text, pictures, and questions. It would make a sweet little Valentine for your little one!

Thank you to Tyndale for this book for my honest review.

Cute! It looks adorable! Beckett got a copy of Sheila Walsh's "Goodnight Warrior" for Christmas. It's super cute but I think geared more for older kids so you guys might like that one.
