100 Bible Stories, 100 Bible Songs

100 Bible Stories 100 Bible Songs written by Stephen Elkins is obviously geared towards children, but it is a pleasure for an adult to share as well. This hardcover also comes with a CD in a plastic pocket inside the front and rear cover. The illustrations are pleasant and my children had many questions that lead to good discussions. The stories were carefully worded, even some of the more challenging ones such as Abraham and Isaac. I was disappointed that the reason Jesus died on the cross wasn't really spoken of, that was one thing that should not have been glossed over, but I believe it will at least give us a starting point for a good discussion. My 4 year old keeps asking every day to read more and will listen for as long as I read the stories. There are, as the title says, 100 songs on CD. My children loved listening to them. Unfortunately, one of the discs did not want to come out of the plastic sleeve. When I did get it out, it was scratched and it skips and jumps through 3 or 4 songs. I have not tried a disc repair attempt as of yet. If I had paid for this book, I would have returned it for one that did not have this problem. Over all though, it is a delightful book and I do recommend it.
