    With the digital age of books I have to admit that I find it hard to follow a book on at tablet. However, my kids dont have any problems in with reading books on the tablet. They eat them up. I was quite excited to receive this for my son. I downloaded it for him on his tablet and on my computer for me to look at.

    First off Im enthralled with the colorful graphics of the The Action Storybook Bible. The details in this Bible are quite remarkable. My son and I spent a lot of time exploring the graphics after we read the Bible stories.

    The Bible pages are set up like a comic strip. Some pages have a full page of a story while other stories are broken down in comic strip boxes. The font is easy to read on the colorful pages and of course what is a graphic style Bible without a few KABOOMS and such!

    There are a total of 15 of the Bible stories 9 Old Testament and 6 New Testament. Remember this is a storybook Bible. The stories that we know from the Bible are not compromised but, they are shortened. This is something that kids can enjoy getting familiar with men and women in Gods Word.

    At the end of each Bible story there is a section called, Life, Faith, Action. This is basically a summary of the story showing you God in Action of the individual and putting Faith in Action. With a box that has a prayer that you can say pertaining to the events of the story.

    At the end of the Bible another section I like was the, Hall of Fame This showcases 40 individuals from Gods word. One of the individuals is you. Its in alphabetical order and gives a brief description of each individual.

    I dont think this replaces a full Bible but, it wont hurt your kids to read the amazing things that God has done in The Action Storybook Bible'. I have heard some critical comments from parent with this style of Bible. In my opinion is it going to hurt them studying Gods word reading this? I rather them read this then some other books out there. Get your kids a full Bible also. I know my son remembered many stories from the Bible from a graphic Bible in the past.

    I received a free copy of this product from Litfuse Publicity in exchange for my honest review. I was not required to write a positive review nor was I compensated in any other way. All opinions I have expressed are my own or those of my family. I am disclosing this information accordance with the FTC Regulations.

    This is a good Bible for preschool and young elementary age readers. The illustrations are great and the small amount of text is good for beginning readers and families with young children. The major Old Testament stories are included. The New Testament representation is slim with just the story of Jesus and a bit from Revelation. I do like that the gospel message is very clearly presented.

    I read a preview digital edition on my Kindle Fire. I was impressed with the design and presentation on a small device. It would be a good ebook for kids to read on a tablet. I think it is a good way to introduce young children to the Bible.

    I received an egalley of this book through Litfuse. My comments are an independent and honest review.

    First, I would like to extend a heartfelt Thank you to Catherine DeVries and Sergio Cariello and their publisher for sending me a copy of "Action Storybook Bible" to review for them. I am truly grateful for this generosity. I really appreciate the time, effort and expense it takes to make a reviewer copy available to me.

    The 'Action Storybook Bible' by Catherine DeVries and Sergio Cariello is an engaging, colorful, comic book format retelling of several beloved Bible stories. Each chapter is based on different sections of Scripture: some are based on a few verses, others are based on chapters and still others are based on whole books of the Bible. Each story is followed by a page that identifies an aspect of Gods character, an illustration of God at work, an exercise to encourage application of the principles of the story to our lives and a prayer.

    I was surprised at the depth of insight into the stories in several cases. The Action Storybook Bible would be a great devotional for parents or grandparents to do with children. It will lay a foundation in the home that can be supplemented by Sunday School and future education.
