Harvest House Publishers was conceived in 1974 with just five titles and a dream in the heart of its founder, Bob Hawkins, Sr. to publish books to help the hurts of people. Within two years, five of its titles had sold more than 100,000 copies and one title was on the bestseller list for eight months in a row. By the late 1980s, Harvest House was among the top ten publishers of Christian literature. The company publishes more than 150 new books each year and offers a strong backlist of more than 1200 titles.
Harvest House books gained a reputation of being affordable, trustworthy and practical by meeting people's most current needs in three major categories: self-help (relationships, family, Christian living), Bible resources (Bibles, Bible studies, topical studies), and full color gift and children's books featuring top licensed artists. More than 100 million Harvest House books have been sold worldwide in bookstores, gift stores, grocery stores, airports, mass market outlets, catalogs, on Internet sites, and in digital format online. Millions more have been sold in 75 languages around the world.

Reviews - What do customers think about My Very Own Bible?
Good introduction to the Bible Mar 11, 2009
Among the myriad of children's Bibles now available is My Very Own Bible by Betty Fletcher.
Here at Christian Children's Book Review, we see a great many children's Bibles. What sets this Bible apart is its small-hands size (about 5.9 x 4.1 inches) and the fact that it introduces young children not only to widely-told Bible stories (like Noah's Ark and David and Goliath) but also stories that are less often told in Bibles for little ones.
Some of the lesser-told Bible stories include: Moses parting the Red Sea, Gideon and his army, Elisha and the poor woman, Naaman, Queen Esther, the fiery furnace, John the Baptist, Bartimaeus, the poor woman who gave pennies, doubting Thomas, Paul and Silas in jail, and a succinct telling of what Heaven will be like (from the book of Revelation). Each Bible story is told in a two page spread, with the text on one side of the page and a colorful illustration by Lou Police on the opposite side.
What I Like: Small children love books that are diminutive, and while this Bible doesn't offer much detail for each story, it is a great introduction to many stories in the Bible, as well as to basic concepts like who Jesus is.
What I Dislike: If you're looking for much in the way of details, this is not the Bible for your child.
Overall Rating: Good.
