Most storybook Bibles feel like Bibles rather than storybooks.
Sure, the genre is a storybook written for children in narrative form with the Bible as the main text, but A Child’s Bible feels more like any storybook a child would pick off the shelf read. It’s a large square, thin book that feels like any other storybook. This story Bible has animal pictures on its cover so it looks even more like an animal storybook than a Bible storybook. I don’t think this children’s Bible is trying to trick its readers, but I really like the subtly of it.
I’d also like to note that the titles of each story are unique as well. Like:
- “The whispering snake”
- “Ten rules for life”
- “Breakfast by the lake”
Stories are short and digestible for children.
Combining charming illustrations and engaging storytelling, A Child’s Bible brings the Bible to life for young readers. More than a collection of random Bible stories, this book appropriately represents the Bible as the story of God’s relationship with his created world and people.
A Child’s Bible is a child’s perfect introduction to the God who made you and me and all the world.
Is A Child’s Bible a full text of the Bible? No.
Does this story Bible have a lot of Bible stories in it? Yes.
Are the major Bible stories present? Yep.
