This doesn't only minister to the hearts of children of all ages, but to the parents (or reader) too! We give this as a birthday gift quite often because I think it is so beautifully written and accurately pointing to Jesus throughout every story in the bible. And I know I finish feeling so tremendously loved by God, and pray my children feel the same as we read the stories over and over. The stories are also a good length for a story before bed. The illustrations are also great.
After borrowing this from the library and reading it with my three-year old son, I bought three copies---one for my family, and two to give away. The biggest problem with other Bibles for children is they seem like moralistic Aesop's fables---God punishes bad people and rewards good people---but this Bible clearly focuses on Christ and the Gospel.
Also the illustrations are good and the storytelling is easy to follow.
I gave this beautiful book set to my sister for her new baby. She's looking forward to introducing her daughter to stories from the Bible with the soothing voice talents of David Suchet. Her husband might even use it in his 5th grade Sunday school class!
