Really Woolly Bible Stories by Bonnie Rickner Jensen

Really Woolly Bible Stories by Bonnie Rickner Jensen and illustrated by Julie Sawyer Phillips is a simple sweet collection of favorite Bible stories told in rhyme. The rhymes are really well done capturing the key message of these stories while keeping it a fun and flowing read that the youngest of children will enjoy listening too. The book starts with the scripture verses John 10:11 and Isaiah 40:11 as a premise helping to tie the really woolly sheep character into the Biblical references of Jesus the good shepherd tending to his lambs and how we are His child and how He cares for us. There are 16 Bible stories retold in this book with the scripture references included. The book concludes with "A Prayer for You" poem in the back which makes for a wonderful good night prayer to share each night with your little one. Each story is accompanied by the really cute really Woolly and his friends, a rabbit and a duck, as well as a picture portraying the Bible story. It's a wonderful read geared more towards preschool age and younger but sure to charm all ages. I am very happy with this book and I am adding it to one of my favorite books to give to new moms to be.

I received a free copy of this book through Thomas Nelson Publishing’s Book Sneeze book review program. The opinions expressed in this review are my own and I was not required to provide a positive review.
