Mel5 Stars Out Of 5A Great Bible for Young KidsMarch 24, 2017MelQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5This Bible is ideal for ages 4 to mid-elementary, in my opinion. Three kids at VBS step onto a bus that transports them into Biblical times. The kids watch the Bible stories as they occur. There are 85 Bible stories in this book, but there are also other features that make this book invaluable like memory verses, think about it sections and history and geography details. Love this book!
Debbie from ChristFocusHarrison, ARAge: 35-44Gender: female4 Stars Out Of 5Good overall, but I had some problems with the early Genesis storiesMarch 1, 2017Debbie from ChristFocusHarrison, ARAge: 35-44Gender: femaleQuality: 4Value: 4Meets Expectations: 3The Story Travelers Bible is a children's Bible story collection for grades 3 - 7. The stories were told in present tense since the modern main characters (Lana, Munch, and Griffin) watch from a time-traveling bus as events happen. They started at creation and ended with John's revelation about the new heavens and new earth. The stories were usually tied together with a summary of what happened between these stories, so it reads as one continuous story.
There were side bars providing simple memory verses, some commentary about the events, and information about the various countries mentioned. Overall, the stories were retold pretty faithfully to the biblical versions. They skipped over things that parents might not want to explain, so Ruth simply goes to Boaz and he wakes up--no lying at his feet--and Rahab's occupation was never mentioned. Jael "quickly and quietly kills Sisera" without the details of how it was done.
The illustrations were simple in style yet looked more like real people than cartoons. They were also reasonably accurate in terms of what the people and things may have looked like. However, the illustrator didn't do a good job with early Genesis. It's hard to take the Noah account seriously as literal history when the illustration made it look like only a few animals would fit in the boat. Then the toy-like boat landed, apparently about to fall off off the top of a small mountain peak, with no way for the animals and people to get off the Ark.
Eve was shown sitting against the forbidden tree while she tells the serpent that they can't eat from the tree or even touch it. Oops! And both text and illustration had Adam asleep in Eve's lap, so he ended up eating the fruit without knowing where it came from. That's the one addition made to the biblical text that had theological ramifications, and I don't think the biblical text indicates that to be true. Anyway, except for early Genesis, this was one of the better children's Bible story collections that I've read.
I received this book as a review copy from the publisher.
Dr JSKAge: 45-54Gender: male5 Stars Out Of 5The Story Travelers BibleMarch 1, 2017Dr JSKAge: 45-54Gender: maleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5The Story Travelers Bible, published by Tyndale Kids, created by Tracy Maddler, illustrated by Tim Crecelius, is a Bible designed to make the study of God's Word more appealing to those ten years of age or less.
Filled with 85 illustrated Biblical stories, this Bible is sure to catch the attention and imagination of the youngest seekers of God's truth. The stories shared range from The Journey Begins, which shares the story of creation, to The End Of The Road, which shares about John and the writing of Revelation. When you included the other 83 stories in between, this book has the potential to bring the essence of the Bible to life.
The stories are enhanced with sections entitled Build you faith or Think About It, as well as other sections that are utilized to describe pertinent information about the story that is being examined, such as geography, culture, and lifestyles of Biblical times.
The amazing illustrations and easy to understand retelling of familiar Bible stores makes this a perfect gift, thus it is a recommended purchase.

DeannaNEAge: 55-65Gender: female5 Stars Out Of 5A wonderful way to teach the stories of the Bible!February 28, 2017DeannaNEAge: 55-65Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5This is a fun way to learn stories from the Bible. We climb aboard the bus and travel along with Lana, Munch and Griffin as they travel through the Holy Land. The pages are fully illustrated in bold colors and the stories are told in a simpler fun way. There are think about it bars, other side bars with memory verses and references to where in the Bible to look for scripture to learn more about the story. In the story of Noahs Ark, Noah had the exact measurements for the ark and they are given in one of the think about it bars found throughout, interesting facts there for any age. Great information and the stories are made to understand and remember. I really like this book and Im finding I like it as a nice study tool for teaching my Grandchildren the wonderful stories of the Bible.. Tyndale House Publishers provided me with a complimentary copy of this book.
Laura Rene3 Stars Out Of 5Great idea but missing some things from a Catholic perspectiveFebruary 28, 2017Laura ReneQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 4Even though G is still an infant, I think it's never too early to contemplate ways we can introduce our Lord Jesus, our Mother Mary, and our beautiful Catholic Faith to her. Books and stories are one of my favorite ways to do that-- and what better book to introduce a little one to Jesus than the Bible?
The Story Travelers Bible is such a cute idea. It's about three modern-day children who go back in time on an adventure tour through the stories and places in the Bible. Set in the same order as the Bible itself, they begin their adventure at the creation of the world and ends with John's vision on the island of Patmos. The book is filled with colorful illustrations, memory verses, and extra 'fun facts' in addition to the Bible stories. It would make a great movie or TV series, but I like that it's a book of stories instead-- just as captivating yet better than screen time. :)
The only things I wasn't crazy about is that because the STB is from a Protestant perspective, there are a few stories that are missing the fullness and beauty in the Catholic faith...the Last Supper, Mary's stories and personal holiness, even some of the typology in the Old Testament. The Catholic Church is so amazing at pulling out the depth of scripture and how intertwined the Old Testament and New Testament are...whereas this Bible reads more of a beginning to end storybook without all the connections present. Still a great book, but I would be hesitant about the few stories that are missing important details. I hope a Catholic publisher comes up with something similar in the coming years. :)
