Another read-through-the-Bible-in-a-year kind of Bible for children.
The Children’s Bible in 365 Stories: A story for every day of the year, is arranged similarly to the Day by Day Kid’s Bible. The stories are dated and organized to fit in a calendar year.
And that’s about it. There are no special features or interactive website or mobile app. No amazing graphics or textual assists. Just the story of the day amidst a picture in the background. Each day of reading seems to be between 7-9 paragraphs. So the content is pretty simple and seemingly digestible for preschool children and readable for early readers. It kind of has an old-fashioned feel to it, much like The Golden Children’s Bible. It’s kinda nice and simple.
From the author, Mary Batchelor:
Not everything in the Bible could possibly have been squeezed into this book, so I have picked out the most exciting stories and the best-loved ones. But I chose with another purpose, too. Although the Bible may seem to be a puzzling mixture of different kinds of writing, the separate parts fit together, like pieces in a jig-saw, to make one whole picture. I wanted to make that picture plain.
Is The Children’s Bible in 365 Stories a full text of the Bible? No.
Does this story Bible have a lot of Bible stories in it? Yes, many.
Are the major Bible stories present? It appears so, yes.
