About the author- Diane Stortz currently lives with her husband in Ohio. She has two grown daughters. She has been in publishing for many years and she is the cofounder of the National Network of Parents of Missionaries.
About the illustrator- Shelia Bailey currently lives in California and has been writing and illustrating children’s books for more than ten years. She works in watercolor and digital media.
My thoughts- This book is perfect for young girls ages, 4-7. It is cute and the CD case and box hold everything together perfectly. It is perfect for the three young girls I have in my life.
The “Sweet Thoughts” and “Sweet Words” will teach them important aspects of the Bible which will stay with them all of their lives. I liked the addition of some of the great women of the Bible, like Deborah, Ruth, Esther, Lydia, and Priscilla. As there are still books of the bible I have not yet read, this book taught me about women I had not heard of.
My young daughter, has really enjoyed looking at the pictures and listening to the stories read by Roma Downey. (Don’t tell her, but I’m getting one for her for a present.)
This story Bible is perfect for any young lady. I highly recommend it.
