As the mother of a young child, I am constantly on the lookout for new books for my girls. When I saw this Bible, I was immediately interested and it didnt disappoint. This book is hardback and sturdy. There are bright color pictures on every page, and a large font size for younger readers. They didnt put so much text on a page that the child loses interest before the parent can get through it all.
Another aspect that I liked was that they didnt stray as far from the Bible as some Bible storybooks go. There is a table of contents in the front that shows the Old and New Testament stories. There is also a small Bible reference at the beginning of each short story. Its a general reference, but its enough to empower an older child to look the story up.
One complaint that I have for this book, is that it skips over some of the stories that parents might not want their child to read. For example, they skipped the story of Cain and Able. Now some parents may not be ready for their little one to read about the first murder, but I believe you cant have a book without sin in it and expect someone to appreciate Jesus. Diluting sin also dilutes grace. I have seen some childrens Bibles that handle that topic delicately, but still include it.
With that aside, I love this book, and I am excited to see my husband add it to her nightly Bible story time.

By far, The Beginner's Bible is my favorite Bible for little ones. I used it for Sunday School, teaching preschool, and now my little ones enjoy the timeless stories. The Bible is a little bulky and heavy, but it includes all the classic stories. Your little ones will love the pictures and the stories are short enough to keep their attention. I thing every little one should have their own copy of this wonderful Bible!
I purchase this for my grandson for Sunday School. He immediately open it and started reading it. This bible tells the numerous stories of our Lord and Savior multiple acts of love so that even a child will understand it. I purchase two more just for the other children.
