Book Review: "Bible Gems to Remember" Illustrated Bible

About the book: 

Scripture is filled with “gemstones”—concise statements of five words or less that hold great value, meaning, and power. Bible Gems to Remember Illustrated Bible, written by Robin Schmitt and illustrated by Kris Aro McLeod, takes children through 52 stories from the Bible, each featuring a powerful gem from Scripture to memorize.

God can accomplish amazing things with just a few words. Imagine what he could do in the heart of a child who memorizes and meditates on these short “gems” of wisdom from the Bible.

Bible Gems to Remember Illustrated Bible:
-Offers 52 stories from the Bible, one for each week of the year, enhanced with beautiful gemstone photos that encourage children to memorize Scripture
-Includes more related gems to ponder at the end of each Bible story above and beyond the featured gemstone verse
-Is creatively based on Scripture “gemstones” that are concise statements of five words or less that hold great value, meaning, and power
-Features a gorgeous cover

My Review:
My children and I are loving the easy memory verse for each story with some pretty pictures of gems on the page!  Each of the verses is so short we all cam memorize it on the spot as we recite it together a couple of times.  
There are 52 Bible Stories in this children's picture bible.  So you can use this book one day a week for the 52 weeks in the year or like us just read it daily until you finish it.  
My favorite feature of this bible is the push for memorizing.   I will admit I am not always very good at taking time to do so but with this they are super easy to do!  If you are like me you can agree that even the 5 words or less of memorize scripture can do mighty and amazing things in our lives!   

A few Gems;
Job 19:25- My redeemer lives
Galatians 5:13 Serve one another
1 John 1:7 Walk in the light.
Matthew 13:43 The righteous will shine
Romans 10:9 Jesus is Lord
Psalm 121:5 The Lord watches over you

See easy and powerful!   :)
