Read and Share Children’s Bible (Giveaway!)

I received this adorable children’s Bible to review, and only wish I’d had a few copies before Christmas to give to my grand-niece and to friend’s little ones. This is actually a two-for-one review since Kathryn also looked it over and gave me her assessment.

This hardback book has nice-feeling pages and a seemingly sturdy binding. (Yes, I care about things like how pages feel; yucky pages make me sad!) The illustrations, similar to the one on the front of the Bible, are cute and colorful, and some of them even had Kathryn giggling — like the fish’s face in the story of Jonah.

All of the 208 “bite-sized” stories have a reference to the appropriate Bible verse; I like this because it makes it easier for parents who might want to use this for Bible lessons. Stories appear in chronological order, and each one has a short discussion prompt. For instance, in one of the stories of Moses, the prompt is, “Sometimes even when we do good, things get worse for a while. This is when we need to remember that God can see ahead.” Or when Jesus walks on the water, the prompt asks, “If you had been in that boat, what would you have done?

After some discussion, Kathryn and I decided we’d recommend this story Bible for ages two to eight. The illustrations and short length of the stories would be wonderful for toddlers and preschoolers. Beginning readers could read along with mom or dad, as the font is large and kid-friendly. Early elementary kids could read this for themselves, and parents could discuss the stories, or follow up by reading aloud from the “real” Bible.

Jamie – thanks for the review! It’s most helpful, as we are always trying to find new ideas to get the Word into our children’s lives. Children’s Bible is an app designed for children 3-13 & shares Bible stories through comics. It is available for most smart phones & computers. We have found this is a great way to get our children in the habit of reading the Bible, & it’s on their level. They have really enjoyed it & we are thrilled at their excitement with the Word. Just something we have found that works & wanted to pass… Read more »
