Format: Paperback
A great way to introduce preschoolers to more than just the most popular Bible stories. This book goes straight through the Bible in short 2-3 minute stories, with two simple questions at the end of each. My 4-year-old begs me to read it to her each night. I let her pick out a few from anywhere in the book (usually chosen because of the pictures), which I read. Then I read 2 or 3, going through the book in order. This way, she gets to satisfy her curiosity about some of the pictures that have intrigued her, and I get the satisfaction of knowing that she's getting the full picture of the Bible, by reading straight through. Very highly recommended!

For those of you looking at this book thinking it is the "Bedtime Bible Story Book" by Jesse Lyman Hurlbut, do not purchase this book.

The illustrator is the same, but these 365 stories are (as one person so aptly put it) are "stripped to the bone and dried". The original was a "Barbour Book" (isbn 1-55748-264-0). I put the original isbn number in, but it brought me to the one above, printed by Paradise Press.

The cover is very similar to Hurlbut's book, but this in not her book. I was so disappointed when this arrived. I'll never use it and won't pass it along to anyone else. I purchased Hurlbut's book from a used book dealer.

Some folks did not like the original because it was very straightforward about many of the ugly things that happened in the Old Testament account of history. So it's my guess that that is why we have the one above. I do not believe Hurlbut's version is in print anymore.

I personally love Hurlbut's original and am reading it to my children. I like it's honesty and my children really love it. Hurlbut gives history that I did not even know in order to put the events in historical context.

If you want a more gentle book for the very young, look at"Leading Little Ones to God" by Maran M. Schoolland. It is an amazing and awe inspiring book.

Format: Paperback
Jesse Hurlbut has done us a great service by producing what is in reality a condensed bible with lots of little illustrations.
I bought 365 Read Aloud Bedtime Bible Stories to read to my 4 year old, but the language in the book is not simplified enough for very young children. It is at the level of, say, The Good News Bible.
However, I'm really enjoying reading this one myself now! The author has given us a 365 page "Best Of The Bible", which moves from Genesis right through to Revelations, and does so with clarity and faithfulness as a new, highly readable, very condensed translation-in-its-own-right.
I really feel that this book really fills a need as a legitimate Bible primer, for all ages. It certainly doesn't insult the adult, but children from 10 years can also enjoy it on their own. And I have not seen any better introduction to all the main storylines of both Old and New Testaments.
This book is a bargain, and mine now has its own place amongst my various Bibles, but I do think there is an opportunity for the book to be re-titled as a unique Bible primer for all ages, with the world's easiest 365 day reading plan!
Very highly recommended, but not for the advertised purpose - unless your kids are a bit older than mine. Cheers Ross Kelly

Format: Paperback
I am a non-Christian trying to learn more about Christianity, and I have found that these Bedtime Bible Stories are a great place to start. Although they were written for younger kids, the language is not too simple as to be annoying for me, a college student, to read as I have found with other Christian books aimed at kids. I had been flipping through several of those books. Since I don't know much about Christianity, I wanted basic information presented in a clear, simple manner that went into at least some detail, and it had to be something that would keep my attention. I like how this book cites the corresponding Bible verses for each story (as any decent book of this kind should) so that I can also easily go to the original source. I'm still only on the first few stories from Genesis, but this book has already proven to be invaluable as one of the tools I'm using to learn more about Christianity.

This Bible story book preserves as much of the Biblical language that it can while still remaining crystal-clear to children. That way when they are older and are ready to transition to their own Bibles, they will already be familiar with the language used in the Bible. We ue this book every day with our five children who range in age from 8 months to 11 years.

I originally desired to have this book to read to my children. We really enjoy reading it together. However, as time is going by, I find myself reading it by myself. I enjoy being able to read these stories in an "easy reading" format. It gives my a different perspective on the Bible that I have never had before. I think it is a must have in anyone's library and who could beat the price! It is quite a thick book....I was pleasantly surprised.

I am a mother of three children. I have used this book for years to read at bedtime. Children ages 5-10 love to answer the questions at the end of each story. Each story is approximately 10-12 minutes long and is true to the Bible.
