I loved this book also
I read this to my kids ages 6, 4, and 2. they may not have understood everything, but they were very into the story. i loved this book also. it is one you can read over and over again. i enjoyed having the scripture references in it although it made reading it aloud a bit of a pain because i skipped over them while reading to the kids. it is a great modern english version of this book though. my older two picked up the story line with understanding easily.
