I purchased this Bible years ago for my firstborn daughter. She loved it to pieces (quite literally). And now, our son has his own and loves it too! Great way to get young children, especially those learning to read, into the Word of the Lord! The stories are simply stated, but not dumbed down. Great, engaging pictures! If you want your child to develop a passion for studying the Bible, this could be just the bridge that they need before they get a chapter and verse Bible. I know that was the case in our home.
This is the best story Bible I have ever seen. The stories are Biblically accurate, with well chosen easy-to-read words, and the pictures are peaceful & beautiful. (No stick figures with bug eyes here!) A wonderful pictorial table of contents at the beginning, too.
My four children all learned to read from this Bible. I read it to them so much that they already knew most of the words when it was time for them to start reading it themselves. Once they had read this whole Bible out loud to me, then it was time for them to give them their first real Bible. (But of course, they still spent a lot of time with their beloved story Bible.) Now I am buying copies for my youngest nieces & nephews, and looking forward to reading it to my grandkids someday!
My 6 year old granddaughter loves this Bible. She has a couple of other Bibles for Children but this one is by far her favorite. It is right at her reading level, with a few words to push her a bit, but it does not frustrate her. Great investment. We are separated by over a thousand miles, but several evenings a week, we have a web cam. She reads to me and I follow along with my copy. We discuss the stories and how they apply to our lives--a great way to foster and keep a relationship when separated by many miles!
