Bible and Prayers for Teddy and Me includes twelve stories, which show the reader how God loves and cares for them.    Each story is wonderfully illustrated and includes a story and prayer.  Some of the stories are David and Goliath, Jesus as a teacher, and Moses.

My thoughts-

I always enjoy reading and looking at illustrated Bible storybooks, like Bible and Prayers for Teddy and Me.  I especially enjoyed reading this one, because of the prayers and how each story was perfectly suited for children.

One of my favorite stories was about the lost sheep, because that prayer was about how we feel after being naughty and how we would like God to bring us back to him.  The illustrations of the sheep, shepherds, and the children with the teddy bear were priceless. 

I found all of the illustrations and stories to be some of the best that I have ever read.  This book is perfect for reading as a bedtime story or as character development.  This book is perfect for children between the ages of three and five, but I think that it would work well for children up to the age of eight. 

I highly recommend this book for all children.  This book would make a wonderful gift and you could include and teddy bear too.
