My Grandparents gave an earlier printing to my parents. I "borrowed" it when I started reading to my kids. To enjoy reading to kids I need to enjoy what I am reading. The stories are well written, they follow the Bible closely without adding in a bunch, and they go through the whole Bible old and new testament. It's a book that an adult can enjoy reading to children, and children can enjoy reading to themselves. I enjoyed reading it to my kids as much as I did reading it when I was a child. I hadn't come across the book before except for the copy my Grandparents gave my parents, now my children are grown up and are starting to have children, so when I found it on Christianbook.com I bought a copy for each of them.
I never found an acceptable children's Bible - until now! Too late for my kids, but thrilled to have this for my grandchildren. Not dumbed down or oversimplified. Very accurate stories in a format perfect for the young ones.
