Kendra4 Stars Out Of 5Beginners Bible with a new lookNovember 13, 2016KendraQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 4The bestselling Beginner's Bible, first released in 1989, has a new look--3D artwork and googly eyes. Featuring 48 Old Testament stories and 44 from the New Testament, this story book gives a good overview of the Bible. The stories are short and simple, written for ages 4-8. A glossary is included in the back to explain words with which children may not be familiar. Since the stories are so short and written using simple language, there are obviously a lot of details and narrative that are left out. I think the overall conveyance is mostly accurate to the Bible (with the disclaimer that I have not read each story critically). There is no commentary, explanation, or application in the stories, just sequence of events.
My children are 4 and 3, and they enjoy the stories and pictures. I'm not a fan of cartoony pictures in general, and the 3D enhancement gives more distinct definition to the female figure than I would prefer, but the illustrations are very colorful and active, which appeals to the kids. This won't become my favourite Bible story book, but is definitely a good choice for age-appropriate telling of basic Bible stories or for early readers.
I received a copy of this book from the publisher in exchange for my review.

Treenz5 Stars Out Of 5Great Bible for little ones!October 29, 2016TreenzQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5Ive seen this book around for years - or previous versions so I was thrilled to get the opportunity to review this one since its pretty close to the right time for my 3 year old. The ages on the back say 4-8, which I would say is spot on.
It is exactly what I was looking for, for my son. It is separated into Old Testament and New Testament and goes through them with stories in the same order as the Bible. The font is large, the text is simple for little ones to understand. Im sure 8 year olds could read it. The pictures are bright and cartoonish 3D style. While its not my favorite style, this is the style I have always seen with this Bible in the past - it obviously works for this age group or they would have changed it more with this new edition. I believe the pictures are updated from the older versions but are still similar.
I like this because it really is a Bible and introduces little ones to the format of the Bible, and also many of the stories and concepts that they can understand from the Bible. Its a beautiful little hardcover book that Im sure any little one will treasure.
I would definitely recommend this Bible after seeing it firsthand and reading through it. A great way to introduce your child to the Bible and start a love for Gods word from young.
Please note that I was sent a copy of this book for purposes of review, however my review is entirely my own.
