This Bible is awesome! My Sunday school classes have never been more fun. I have been teaching Sunday School for 15 years and I have never seen kids more excited about coming to church on Sundays. Better than that parents are wanting to buy one for their child to use at home, even though we provide them for our kids.
Why do I think this one is better than many already on the market? Besides the fact that it is a comfortable carrying size with an attractive cover and a readable black print font size, I really like the "hands on" activities. Because children (especially some of my children) tend to learn best with hands-on activities. Activities such as: * build a house of cards and a build a house out of blocks * fashion a tablet, write the ten commandments on it and decorate it to look like stone * clean your room and donate any unneeded toys to a local organization which helps the poor * place your forehead on an upright baseball bat and spin around it five times then attempt to walk * learn how to juggle * shake some pepper into a bowl of water and stick your finger in it to see what happensWould you believe that each of these activities is designed to teach some Bible truth? They are. These hands-on activities are really well designed to connect spiritual truth to children in a memorable way. I am so pleased, in fact, that I am planning to use this Bible during our homeschool Bible class this year.Some of the other special features of this Bible are: * the use of the New Living Translation, which is an easy translation for children to understand * 52 Key Verse Activities--a great way to incorporate one Scripture memory verse per week into your schedule in memorable way * Bible Book Introductions use humor and interesting graphics to draw children into desiring to read more of God's word * Full-color Bible Bonanza Experiences introduce children to important Bible stories * Fun Facts about the Bible * Bible Hero Biographies, written as if the Bible hero were speaking straight to your child * Index, Dictionary/Concordance, Maps, Charts, Questions and Answers and moreDisclosure: I was provided a complimentary copy of this Bible, as well as the complimentary giveaway certificate, from Tyndale.
The Hands On Bible is AWESOME!!! We are really enjoying it and I love that while the age group is more school aged you can use it for your younger children as well. This is a bible that will be used for years with your child and your child will enjoy it. The Hands On Bible makes reading the bible fun! We had another children's bible written especially for children that I thought would never be beat but my girls fell in love with the Hands On Bible and we have been using it non stop for Bible time.
