Wonderful art work Feb 20, 2007
The art work is wonderful, no wonder they did a second Bible with just illustrations. My kids love it.
Nice intermediate kid's bible Aug 25, 2006
If you want more than a baby bible but aren't quite ready for a full text version, this is a great choice. Seems to cover most of the major stories of the bible so it's more than just a few sundry bible stories. The illustrations are fun--lots of action and color without being too cartoony. My 4 year old son is sitting, looking at his new copy now and I imagine that even my 8 year old daughter will enjoy it.
My Son Loves This Bible Apr 19, 2005
My son is 4-years old and he can not get enough of these Bible stories night after night. He also has the Leap Pad version of one of the stories but he does not like that nearly as much. I feel that the stories are complete enough for his age but omit potentially disturbing details that simply are not needed until later. My husband and I also enjoy getting a little Bible refresher from a simpler point-of-view.
A good Bible for any young child and not bad for parents either.
Great for Small Kids Nov 25, 2004
In Brazil I bought a copy of the Portuguese language edition of this book to read to my daughter, so when we moved to the United States it was only natural to seek it out in English. Since she's now seven I don't read out of this Bible to her any more, but from age 3-6 it was great, and I'll read it to my little boy once he's old enough to sit still. We read it cover to cover many times, and I'm convinced that this has helped to to establish a deep familiarity with the fundamental Biblical narrative. Buy it and read it to your kids or grandkids.
Read with Me Bbile May 21, 2004
I picked this book up as an impulse buy about three years ago and began reading it to my then two year old daughter. At first I was a bit surprised by the violence of the stories. (The scarry snake in the garden of Eden, Abel killed his brother Cain, God flooded the world and everything living thing was wiped out, etc). After comparing it to a full version Bible, I realized how closely it follows the real text. And so we continued reading, with me doing some pretty heavy editing.
Well, my daughter just loved her Bible book. It wasn't long until we had read the whole thing cover to cover. Not only did we read it through another time or two, she then had her favorite stories that we read night after night.
Now that her brother has turned two, we've started from the beginning again. He's not quite as intranced as she was... I think we're dealing with a different level of attention span. But he's listening and it's quality time.
Everybody's right... the pictures in the book are great; the kids love them. It's not an "alls-happy-with-the-world" book of bible stories, but it is true to the full versions they'll be studying later.
I'm going back to buy a second book as ours is completely worn out and pages are falling out.
