I bought one of these books years ago and all my grandchildren loved having it read to them They each had their favourite story. I now run a toddler group and for the last couple of years each child receives one on leaving. Would highly recommend book & company.

“Excellent 5”

I have this book from my 14year old granddaughter from when she was little. She & the others after her loved it.we read it to them all regularly.
I run a toddler group & buy these as gifts when they leave to go to nursery.
Definitely recommend!

“Well written & lovely Bible stories”

This was bought for our son, now 20, and it was his favourite bedtime book. We read it to him until he could read it for himself. We now buy it for other children. Iconic!

“Sharing stories with grandchildren”

What a joy to share this book with my grandchildren. My own children enjoyed reading this retelling of this bible story so it brings back many memories. The illustrations are quite simply divine.

“A firm favourite in our house!”

This has been a firm favourite in our house since the kids were very young. The words are simple (as they should be for the target audience) but very well crafted and they are faithful to the stories with the main point of the passage coming through clearly. The pictures are warm and combine perfectly with the words to get the message across. We've tried lots of story books, secular and Christians, and no many of them manage this as well as Stories Jesus Told. Finally, I like the fact that the Bible passages for each story are printed in the book, making the point that they are not simply made up. Great for children from 2 onwards I would say, and our 6 year old now enjoys reading the stories herself.

“Beautiful book”

I bought it as a Christening present for a friend's baby. I liked it very much and she was thrilled with it. The illustrations are beautiful with appropriate details for children to point at and talk about. The text is simple and well written.

“Lovely book”

Great to read with my under 2 before bed - he really loves it and asks for the lost sheep and precious pearl every night! Well written, simple, good illustrations and each story is introduced with the Bible text. Was given as a present - works really well.
