Review: Little Book of Bible Stories (Precious Moments) by Jean Fischer

Precious Moments
by Jean Fischer
Thomas Nelson
Board Book
32 pages
ages 3 +

Share beloved Bible stories with your little one!

Snuggle up close and imagine the animals entering Noah’s boat two by two, David standing before Goliath with just a slingshot, or Jesus blessing the children. These Bible stories will capture young hearts as they learn about God’s great love.

With classic Precious Moments® illustrations, simple Bible verses, favorite Bible stories, and fun rhymes, Little Book of Bible Stories will help introduce the power of God’s Word to your precious children.


This is a tiny book which will make fans of Precious Moments hearts warm a little bit more.

There are about sixteen familiar Bible stories bound in this 32-page board book. It's a tough book created for small hands and the writing is very much targeted for younger listeners. Each two-page spread begins with a simple title, which gives a quick glimpse at the theme, and then the book and chapters in the Bible where the story can be found. Next comes a 1-2 paragraph short version of the Bible story, followed by a two-lined rhymed prayer and a super short, one-lined verse out of the Bible, which directly relates to the tale. It's short, sweet and aimed at listeners ages 3 and up.

The illustrations are the main lure of this tiny book, letting the Precious Moments style come across on every page. It's cute and a joy to glance through. Only two characters broke away from this style, which my kids did notice right away. Otherwise, it's everything one can expect from Precious Moments.

The stories are kept very children friendly. Obviously, one or two paragraphs isn't enough to bring across the tales in their entirety, and sometimes important aspects are left out. The person reading the book aloud will have to decide for themselves, whether or not these holes need to be patched. 

All in all, it's a cute book, which meets all Precious Moments expectations. It's a lovely glimpse at several of the most known Bible stories and kept short enough to hold even more 'movement' friendly-listeners' attention until the end. 

I received a complimentary copy from Booklook Bloggers for this one.
