Review of the Infographic Bible

Contrary to its name, the Infographic Bible isn’t a Bible. And for me, that’s a point in its favor.

The NIV Biblical Theology Study Bible is a new Bible released by Zondervan.

Review of Cozy, Snowy Cuddles Touch and Feel

Cozy, Snowy Cuddles Touch and Feel is a short (10 page) board book for preschoolers. It follows the adventure of animals in the North Pole, including polar bears, seals, and moose.
