Review:
I'm Going to Give You a Bear Hug! is a rhyming, goodnight tale for ages 4-8.  My son is three years old and has asked to read the book over and over again.  On the second reading I accidentally skipped a page and he called me on it!  He must have really been paying attention to remember every page after one reading!  :P  The illustrations are big and colorful, which really draws my child into the story.  He loves all the animals on the pages; the pig hug being his favorite.  My daughter is one and isn't super into books yet, but will sit to see the animals on the pages.  This book is definitely a keeper in our household.  I received this book free to review from FlyBy Promotions, but all opinions are my own.

The Beginner's Bible Review & Giveaway

About the book: The Beginner's Bible
The Beginner’s Bible® has been a favorite with young children and their parents since its release in 1989 with over 25 million products sold. Now it’s redesigned with fresh new art that will excite children for many more years to come. Full of faith and fun, The Beginner’s Bible is a wonderful gift for any child. The easy-to-read text and bright, full-color illustrations on every page make it a perfect way to introduce young children to the stories and characters of the Bible. With new vibrant three-dimensional art and compelling text, more than 90 Bible stories come to life. Kids ages 6 and under will enjoy the fun illustrations of Noah helping the elephant onto the ark, Jonah praying inside the fish, and more, as they discover The Beginner's Bible just like millions of children before. The Beginner's Bible was named the 2006 Retailers Choice Award winner in Children's Nonfiction.

Review:
The Beginner's Bible is the perfect introduction Bible for children ages 4-8 (and even younger).  We already own the older version and love it.  My son (who is almost 3) wants to read the stories over and over again.  His favorite is David and Goliath, which we have read too many times to count, but after we read his favorite he wants to read the whole Bible page to page.  The new 3D illustrations in this updated version are so colorful and engaging.  My son and I love that there is artwork on every page.  It really brings the stories to life.  I will continue to use this Bible with my son and daughter for years to come.  Very highly recommended.  :)  I received this Bible free to review from FlyBy Promotions.
