The Open Bible NKJV

 First of all I want to say I am not reviewing the Bible part, just the extra study parts, as I believe the Bible to be God's perfect work!

This Study Bible is wonderful! I have never had a study Bible before so I personally found this amazing! I really like the "Book Introductions and Outlines" before each book of the Bible. It tells about the book, the author of the book, the time the book was written, how Christ is seen in the book, 'keys" to the book, and a survey of the book.  I found this very interesting, and I learned a lot of things I didn't know.
In the front it has a 300 page Cyclopedia which is wonderfully handy!! In the back it is also filled with much more like "Prophecies Of The Messiah" , "Laws Of The Bible",  "Between the Testaments" and much more.
This is a wonderful Study Bible! There is only one thing I do not like and that is how thin the pages are. I don't know if it is because it is new, but they are hard to turn sometimes.

Roma Downey's Little Angels Bible Storybook

This book is very cute!! My 6 year old daughter Zoe loves it.
 She is also learning to read and we have been reading it together. At 6 years old she can read about half of the words without my help.
This has become my daughter's favorite book and I love the time we have spent together reading it.
I like how this book is laid out, each story is about 4 pages long.  Also each story starts with the title, the reference where the story is located in the Bible, then little sections for each story called "I learned that..." ; "I can....." ;  "I pray..."  followed by a Bible verse (New Living Translation).
There is also a "table of Contents" in the front to easly find the stories you want to read.
The art work is also very beautiful!  They have done a wonderful job on this book and you will not regret buying it!
