Sonya McCllough Lockridge5 Stars Out Of 5The Perfect Can Do Challenge CompanionFebruary 16, 2018Sonya McCllough LockridgeQuality: 0Value: 0Meets Expectations: 0The 365-Day Storybook Bible is the Perfect Can Do Challenge Companion for children. The 365-Day Storybook Bible is colorful, bright and full of Bible characters. It's 365 Days of five-minute stories for our children. Each day there is an awesome story about our Lord, His people and their activities. The 365-Day Storybook Bible allows our children to see a glimpse of the reality of the Bible in the context of the culture of which the Bible was written. And the illustrations add an active and exciting element to the text. Once again, the 365-Day Storybook Bible is the Perfect Can Do Challenge Companion for children to read while we read and or study our Bibles. Our children, especially little children imitate our activities and Bible reading and study is an activity we need to be more intentional about, thus creating opportunities for our children and grandchildren to duplicate.
I received this Storybook Bible from the publisher in exchange for an honest review.
Jolene5 Stars Out Of 5Not the best, not the worst...February 9, 2018JoleneQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 3The 365-Day Storybook Bible from B&H Publishing is a padded hardcover Bible story book of substantial length. It does not adhere to any particular version of the Bible (KJV, NIV, etc...) Rather, it is written to summarize the Bible story in words easily understood by children. Many Bible stories are covered in this book, including much of the book of Acts. However, Revelation is not included.
So, as soon as I opened the package containing The 365-Day Storybook Bible, my five year old grabbed it and proceeded to look through it for an extended time. She was able to identify certain Bible stories simply by the illustrations and asked about others. Over the past week, she's picked it up almost every day to look at the pictures. She likes it a lot, probably more than I do.
And speaking of the illustrations, The 365-Day Storybook Bible is good at engaging through colorful, mostly well-done illustrations. However, some of the illustrations are unpleasant particularily page 206 where it shows Saul committing suicide by stabbing himself with his sword.... I kinda wish they had left that particular story out. Granted, I know it is part of the Bible, but not necessarily appropriate for young children... Also, I never pictured King David with blonde hair...
My daughter and I have enjoyed reading these stories so far. The story and illustrations are interesting to her. If you want the storytime to last the five minutes that the cover advertises, you'll have to come up with some questions and discussion topics on your own because the narrative provided takes two minutes or less to read. The parent connection is one page in the back of the book, not something integrated with each story.
I recommend The 365-Day Storybook Bible to parents of children between 5-9 years of age. Its' a sturdy, colorful book that teaches stories from the Bible. However, I don't think it's appropriate for younger children. The illustrations can be bit graphic and some of the more gritty Bible stories are included: Joseph & Potiphar's Wife, David & Bathsheba, Saul's suicide, (Abraham, Hagar, and Ishmael are noticeable absent.) My two year would listen and not ask questions about how Bathsheba had David's baby, but my five year old is inquisitive and these stories have enough detail to prompt further questions. If you aren't comfortable with that, you'd have to somehow skip the pages.
Overall, this is not the best book of Bible stories I've seen, nor is it the worst. Seems to fall somewhere in the middle, but my five year old does really like it and that counts for something.

PollyGirlTexasAge: 25-34Gender: female5 Stars Out Of 5My daughters like this book!February 8, 2018PollyGirlTexasAge: 25-34Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 4Meets Expectations: 4I am always looking for books that will help me introduce the Bible and God to our little ones. I came across this 365-Day Storybook Bible and I liked what I read about it. At my daughters age, a 5-minute story is just the right amount of time!
Today she had Big Sister reading it to her. Big Sis remembers when we used to read the 365 Read-Aloud Bedtime Bible Stories to her and her brothers. She thought this 365-Day Storybook Bible was a nicely updated version of that book. Both girls liked the illustrations and the Bible story they read.
This book seems to hit most of the popular and commonly used Bible stories. There are a few that my daughter and I found interesting that they put in this book. We all like how the stories are presented and how easy it was for my younger daughter to understand. These stories had her thinking and asking questions which I like.
We are quite pleased with this book and will be reading it throughout the year!
Kendra2 Stars Out Of 5faithful telling but omits large sections of the BibleJanuary 16, 2018KendraQuality: 4Value: 4Meets Expectations: 2This Bible Storybook is a new edition of a book previously printed in Europe. Bound in a padded cover with a ribbon bookmark, the book features one "five minute" story for each day of the year and colorful illustrations on every page.
-While I did not read every single story, I read a large sampling. The telling was faithful to the Bible and easy for my four and five year olds to understand. For the purist, there are added details (for example, in the story of Jesus' birth, that the stable was a "cozy place" and Jesus was "a beautiful child") but the details were not contradictory to the Bible (in what I read).
-My five year old said he likes the pictures. In the illustrations, the women are modestly clothed and the graphics are not gory or explicit.
-My kids may like the illustrations, but I don't really. Lots of stringy hair flying everywhere and on most pages, the faces look really glum or angry, even when the story isn't necessarily indicating negative emotions.
-While the cover claims "5-minute stories," most of these stories can be read aloud in 30 seconds to two minutes.
-Most importantly, the book entirely skips large portions of the Bible. Any part of Scripture that isn't narrative (i.e. Psalms, Proverbs, prophetic messages, epistles) is unmentioned. The book also ends with Acts, so Revelation is not represented. Within the narrative, there are some obvious omissions as well. For example, the forty years that the Israelites spent wandering in the desert. It tells the Exodus up until the twelve spies are sent into the Promised Land and return with their fearful message. Moses warns the people not to doubt God. Then the next stories are Moses' death and Joshua leading the people into Canaan. Not once is the forty years of wandering mentioned. Another example is the return from captivity. The last Old Testament story in this book is Esther. There is no mention of the return, Ezra and Nehemiah, rebuilding the temple, etc. Considering that the story of Ehud killing King Eglon is given two days and the parable of the Prodigal Son three days (just two examples of many short passages that are spread over multiple days), these omissions are glaring.
All considered, I would say there are much better Bible storybook options available.
I received a copy of this book from the publisher in exchange for my review.
