I bought this book when it first came our for my own son, who was only about 3 at the time. It's a big chunky board book and he sat still for a few minutes at a time to hear a quick story and see the pictures. He was a super wiggly guy. He was adopted and his mom is from Mexico, his dad is, (as he put it), French Creole. So our Samuel is dark skinned. :) We teased him that he was made of chocolate and he loved it. So our Samuel especially loved the story of Samuel, the Lamanite and spent years with a sword or two of some kind in his hand pretending to be "Samuel". Later, when we read about the Anit-Nephi-Lehi's, we found him burying his swords under a mound of couch cushions. Ha Ha!
The stories scan only a couple of pages and so they are short enough to hold a small 2-4 year old child's attention. This is a great alternative for toddlers and preschoolers.
This book is available at Deseret Book, Seagull Book, Amazon and wherever LDS books are sold.
