Fitzysmom5 Stars Out Of 5Review from Rambles of a SAHMAugust 27, 2014FitzysmomQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5It is always a delight to come across a resource that is far above the other offerings in that same category. The Story For Children is in that class. The book is downright hefty simply because it is packed so full of God's messages to His people.
Max Lucado, Randy Frazee, and Karen Davis Hill, have put together a publication that will aid you in teaching your child about the major themes of the Bible. They have chosen forty-eight of the pivotal stories from Scripture. Each chapter unveils an important truth. It is told in the iconic Lucado style, with words that paint pictures and bring about understanding to even the youngest reader or listener. I particularly like how at the end of each segment is a portion called God's Message. It is designed to show the reader that the story that was just covered has everything to do with our modern day lives.
I must also comment on the artwork. The visions that Fausto Bianchi has put together are stunningly beautiful. They compliment the storyline so well by bringing the central truth being depicted to life.
If you are looking for a new book to read and teach your children about the timeless message of the Bible, you really shouldn't pass this one up. It would make a great addition to any home and can be enjoyed by the entire family.
I received a copy of this book to facilitate my review.
FritzchenAge: 55-65Gender: Female1 Stars Out Of 5The Story for ChildrenAugust 20, 2014FritzchenAge: 55-65Gender: FemaleQuality: 1Value: 1Meets Expectations: 1I was excited about using The Story in our congregation. However as I reviewed The Story for Children I was very disappointed. The pictures are great but the text takes complete liberty with Scripture. For example the story of Noah is titled: "One Good Man Deserves a New Start." In contrast the NIV states "Noah found favor in the eyes of the Lord." Joseph is described as daydreaming in his prison cell. The Bible tells us that even in prison the Lord blessed Joseph, so that he was put in charge. We need to be careful what we teach!

I would say that the book is for the 5-10 year age group, the pictures, though beautifully done might be a little scary for the younger children.
