A unique and charming storybook Jun 12, 2007
Reviewed by Stephanie, Parish (age 3), and Isaac (age 1) Rollins for Reader Views (5/07)
Kryszewski's "The KJV Bible for Toddlers" is simple to read. The stories are eight lines long, but they are on two pages. The illustrations are elementary and colorful. The Bible characters look toddler-like, which help the readers to relate. They keep the attention of Parish and Isaac. The illustrations show curious parts of the stories that made Parish ask about them.
The stories are from both the New and Old Testaments. Each story starts with a Bible verse. As the title suggests, the King James Version Bible is used as the basis for the Bible stories.
Parish wants to keep this book. Both Parish and Isaac liked the pictures. The stories were short enough to keep their attention. "The KJV Bible for Toddlers" is a great book to keep for your children's bedtime routine.
The KJV Bible for Toddlers Apr 6, 2007
It is a pretty good book, but not what I expected. Maybe I didn't read correctly the type of cover, etc. t hat the book would be.
Not the best Feb 11, 2007
This book is ok, but the stories are way too short, only 2 pages each, and the pictures are kind of cheesy. Nothing wrong with it, but Zondervan's toddler bible story book is better.
Wide range of stories from the Old and New Testaments Aug 8, 2000
Each of the 90+ two-page Bible stories briefly covers a Biblical story and includes two KJV scripture quotations. Unhappily, it is common for the verses to be highly edited, removing large parts of them and in some cases taking the words out of context. Elipses note the removal of words. It's not uncommon to have several sets of elipses in each quote. Most of the Old Testament stories come from Genesis or Exodus. The New Testament stories are from the Gospels and Acts. Some of the stories are not told in the same "voice" as the original scriptures. Whereas the story is basically the same, I'd prefer that the way the story is told remain true to the Word.
The wording of the stories is nicely done and fits the vocabulary and understanding of toddlers very well. Like most paraphrases, there are times I'd choose different words, but most of the changes would be minor. The illustrations are very nice and simple and apply well to the stories. They provide a good way to expand on the brevity of each story since I think the book often tends to shorten and simplify them a bit too much.
If you know your Bible fairly well and feel comfortable adlibbing your way through the more common stories, this isn't a bad book.
