I can see this book being cuddled more than read!
A warm furry cover with a baby teddy bear looking sweetly to one side, who has fluffy ears just right for little fingers to fiddle with, short stories with their Bible reference and softly coloured illustrations with Tiny Bear appearing on every page spread. The stories are from the Old and New Testament; from The Creation to Easter Day. The words are in rhyme always an extra attraction and the last sentence of each story is addressed to Tiny Bear, with a very simple explanation of what the story means for us. The purchaser of this book will not be able to keep their hands off it, and the recipients will have to be persuaded to leave go, for it to be read.
