I received three Xander Nash books to review including: The Beginning of it All, Sibling Rivalry, and Let My People Go. While I am a believer in not judging the book by its cover, I also believe in the power of first impressions. These books have brightly colored covers with interesting pictures, but perhaps a little too busy. While the pages are not filled with many pictures, the pictures are very relevant for the storyline and are nicely placed within the text which will draw in younger readers as well. When reading these books with my six-year old, she focused on the pictures some while I read aloud.. Another unique feature is the spacing within the text. I really liked that the paragraphs are separated by an additional line which makes for an easier read for younger readers.

As far as the stories themselves, they remind me of Veggie Tales, but in text version. The stories are both geared towards educating younger audiences about the Bible and doing so in an engaging way. My 6 year old really enjoyed the stories. For anyone looking for a way to introduce the Bible to their children or to retell stories of the Bible, these books are a good way to do so. I’d say that these books are great for beginning readers to read with a fluent reader and for more accomplished readers on their own. As an aside, there are some ’groan-worthy’ references in the book that adults may appreciate as well… such as the character Michigan Jones.

The Xander Nash books are published by Creations by Design.  Creation By Design’s bible trading cards, books, and collectible Christian products make bible study fun for kids.
