99 Stories from the Bible by Juliet David, Elina Ellis

Following the narrative of the Bible, this collection of 99 stories starts with At the Beginning, and covers a wide variety of key events, including Samuel Listens, Esther, A Blind Man Sees, and Jesus Walks on the Lake, through to One Day Jesus Will Return. Each story is told over a double page spread with vibrant illustrations and some full page art.

About the Author

Juliet David has written many children s stories and Bible activity books. Her other interests include painting, music, and travel to Israel and other Bible lands. This experienced author lives in London with her family. 
My Review:  
A perfect book of bible stories for young children. First their eyes will take in the beautiful illustrations and bright colors. The stories start with the old testament and follow on through the new testament.
The stories are geared to a young ones attention span, and are short, but to the point. The pictures that go along with each story, compliment really well. I can just picture the little ones pointing to each of them. Noah's Ark is a good example, the picture shows them two by two, and a male and female. Then the next story is the boat afloat, and the cut animals are peeking out the windows.
What a wonderful gift this book will make, or a Grandparent can use to treasure a few minutes with a loved one.

I received this book through Kregel Publications, and was not required to give a positive review.
