Goodreads Summary:
The Adventure Bible for Toddlers starts children ages 2-5 on the journey of a lifetime, teaching them about the Bible s great stories and themes. It helps young children grow in their relationship with God using stories and art from the wildly popular Adventure Bible Storybook. With ten beautifully illustrated and beloved Bible stories from the Old and New Testament, this sturdy padded board book will stimulate toddlers minds and fill their hearts with love for their heavenly Father.
I received a copy of this book from BookLook in exchange for an honest review. All opinions are my own. Buy a copy from Barnes and Noble today. 

My Thoughts:
I was excited to see this title on BookLook as I had been thinking about getting my daughter her first Bible. The cover portrays adorable drawings that I knew would appeal to Baby Girl. The Bible itself contains ten of the more popular children stories (Creation, Daniel, Jesus' birth) and all throughout more wonderful, appealing illustrations.

Baby Girl's verdict? Meh. She will read it with me if I pick it out, but it is not a title she will bring to me on her own. The stories themselves are too short. The ages suggested for this title are 2-5 but I would change that to 1-2 year olds. They are basic and short with not a lot for a child to grow with. 'Adventure Bible' is still the only title I have for Baby Girl however, so it does help me make Bible reading an intentional time.

One of the things I loved the most? The end story about Jesus returning and the adventure still continuing. One thing I found baffling? The penguin included in the illustration of Jesus' birth. I didn't think penguins were found in Israel....

Overall, 'Adventure Bible' has a fun adventure theme that makes Bible stories seem cool and fun. Would I recommend it to others? Meh. I'm keeping my eyes peeled for something better for both me and Baby Girl. I settled on a neutral 3 stars for the book's rating.
