Review: Catholic Cardlinks: Bible

Catholic Cardlinks: Bible by Thomas J. Craughwell
2007, Our Sunday Visitor, 100 pages.

Thomas Craughwell has a knack for informative yet captivating writing! This is a very nice first Bible for a beginning reader, and of course it could be read aloud as well.

Each page has an illustration and a Bible verse in bold, ranging from Genesis to Revelation. I wish the illustrations were a bit more professional, and that the text agreed with the way the "card" pages turn: it is a bit awkward to flip the clunky volume from front to verse on each page.

Mr. Craughwell's retelling of the biblical stories, however, makes up for these minor obstacles! Catholic Cardlinks: Bible could prove to be a valuable Bible stories option for your young elementary school student's curriculum.
