Reviews - What do customers think about DK Read & Listen: First Bible Story Book (DK Read & Listen)?
This is the worst Bible Story Book I've ever read. Nov 6, 2004
I would not recommend this book to anybody.
I found the stories to be much too in depth for a small child with a vivid imagination - especially the story about "Abraham and His Family." The wording is not complicated, but I thought that the stories were a little over exaggerated in some areas and a little to explicit for a three year old.
The illustrations are beautiful, but do not compensate for the poor storytelling. I feel that there are much better products out there such as the Alice in Bibleland series.
Almost right... Nov 8, 2002
This book of Bible stories aimed at the very young is nicely illustrated and fairly well-written. However, it is far too short to be a "Bible" of choice for educating toddlers or those beginning to read. The choice of some of the stories included is questionable, particularly since context is lost. The Gospel stories included are especially inadequate, failing to do justice to the ministry and life of Jesus. Kids could certainly grasp more if given the opportunity to do so.
Looking over similar products on the market, it is quite difficult to find one that satisfies all the necessaries: theological accuracy, wording, sense of style, beautiful illustrations, and completeness. This book could have been a contender, but its lacks in that final requirement only make it good, rather than great.
The beautiful stories of the Bible come to life in this book Apr 30, 1999
My son was given this book on his 2nd birthday and has loved the stories and pictures. The Bible stories are vivid and the beautiful illustrations help keep his attention. I have used this book in my Sunday School class with children up to 6 years old. All of the children enjoyed it.
