One of the most interesting features of this book is the different lengths of the stories. There are three, five, and ten minute stories. If the reader has a shorter amount of time, read one of the three minute stories. If the reader has more time, read a ten minute story.
There are stories from both the Old and New Testament. Children will learn about Samuel, Joseph, Jesus, and other important people from the Bible.

About the Illustrator-
Christine Tappin currently lives in Canterbury, Kent, England and is a children’s illustrator. She has always wanted to be an artist.
I thought the Candle Bedtime Bible, by Karen Williamson, and illustrated by Christine Tappin, would be a perfect bedtime book for young children. My children are eight and ten and they really enjoyed listening to the stories and looking at the illustrations.
I especially liked how there were stories of different time lengths. Since the stories were either three, five, or ten minutes, I could read the story that worked best for the amount of time we had. I do wish there were more ten minute stories, because the children enjoy learning more.
I enjoyed the variety of stories and the best ones were about Jesus. It was good for the children to learn about specific stories about Jesus and the parables he told.
I highly recommend the Candle Bedtime Bible to all people who have dealings with young children.
My daughter who is eight said, “I liked the illustrations. I liked the stories we read. I think this book would be good for kids my age to read to themselves.”
My son who is ten said, “I really liked the Candle Bedtime Bible. I liked how there were three, five, and ten minute stories. The different lengths of time are nice when you only have a certain amount of time to read. The illustrations were nice. I think this book would be good for people of all ages.”
