Seeker2 Stars Out Of 5The Story for ChildrenMarch 23, 2017SeekerQuality: 0Value: 0Meets Expectations: 1We were initially drawn to this because of the multi-ethnicity illustrations, which can be difficult to find in a Bible. However parts of the book seemed to be oversimplified to the point of wandering from the scriptural account. For example: the story of Joseph goes from being mistreated by his brothers to next "daydreaming" in his cell; David's story seems to be only about David and Goliath, and David and Bathsheba, it does not paint a picture of "a man after God's own heart."
We found "The Story for Kids, NIrV" (same collection) to be a better option. It gives a more complete picture while still being sensitive. It still shows David's sin, however, it is in the larger context of His life in relationship with God, and includes his Psalm of repentance and begging forgiveness. Also, the pictures are much more modest than in the younger version.
The two parts we did appreciate from the picture book, The Story for Children, were Pentacost (showing people from every cultural background becoming true family) and Esther ( modest, and skips the details of the harem). However, overall we would recommend the novel format "the Story for Kids NIrV" instead for children 6 and up

But if the contents do not convey the entire message biblically, this is not the way to get Scripture. This may be the only 'Scripture' some people ever get. Be careful!
Jacquelyn Virgil5 Stars Out Of 5Absolutely Beautiful !!March 18, 2015Jacquelyn VirgilQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5I love the illustrations and the text is appropriate for my 3 and 4 year old preschool children. Adults benefit also; especially new believers. I ordered one for each of my students to take home.

Fitzysmom5 Stars Out Of 5Review from Rambles of a SAHMAugust 27, 2014FitzysmomQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5It is always a delight to come across a resource that is far above the other offerings in that same category. The Story For Children is in that class. The book is downright hefty simply because it is packed so full of God's messages to His people.
Max Lucado, Randy Frazee, and Karen Davis Hill, have put together a publication that will aid you in teaching your child about the major themes of the Bible. They have chosen forty-eight of the pivotal stories from Scripture. Each chapter unveils an important truth. It is told in the iconic Lucado style, with words that paint pictures and bring about understanding to even the youngest reader or listener. I particularly like how at the end of each segment is a portion called God's Message. It is designed to show the reader that the story that was just covered has everything to do with our modern day lives.
I must also comment on the artwork. The visions that Fausto Bianchi has put together are stunningly beautiful. They compliment the storyline so well by bringing the central truth being depicted to life.
If you are looking for a new book to read and teach your children about the timeless message of the Bible, you really shouldn't pass this one up. It would make a great addition to any home and can be enjoyed by the entire family.
I received a copy of this book to facilitate my review.
