Me Too! Favourite Bible Stories

2 read & sing along CDs inside

by Marilyn Lashbrook illustrated by Stephanie McFetridge Britt


Price: £12.99
Publisher:Candle Books imprint of Lion Hudson
Published:March 2013
This is the latest presentation of these well loved stories and songs first published back in 2001 and in several formats since.

They certainly deserve being kept available for another generation of little ones. The stories are a very satisfying length which with only a few words on each page means plenty of illustrations to look at. These have just the right amount of detail for a young child to find interesting and with a little adult help and heeding the suggestions given, could spin the stories out for as long as you wish.

The audio CDs are excellent. The narration by Tina Heath is just the job and the songs interspersing the stories are a delight. Lovely rhythms and simple tunes that encourage singing along. I can imagine adults loving this book and the CDs as much as the children I certainly do!

A pity it is so difficult to extract the CDs from their too tight cardboard sleeve. I discovered too late that I could push them up from the front - I had already torn the card slightly.
