Book Description

Children’s Bible is a collection of comic books telling the stories of the Old and New Testament.

• Families
• Catechists
• Teachers
• Everyone who wishes to approach Sacred History as a cultural fact
• People coming from other cultures and religions
• Believers of any age

The main features of this publication are:
THE SCRIPT
• The comic book’s script is a faithful transcription of the biblical texts. No script elements alien to the original text have been added.
• We have used the Good News Bible.
• Every episode takes up one or two double pages. They can be read and used separately or consecutively.

THE DRAWINGS
• The realist drawings follow the tradition of the French Belgian clear-line school made popular by Hergé, creator of Tintin.
• The drawings are the result of an exhaustive work of graphical research, not only with regard to the landscapes of Israel, but also as for the characters’ attire (fabrics, colors, etc.), everyday objects (objects, food, etc.) and the architecture of the moment.
• As for the characters’ faces, we have worked with drawings from life.

Kings and prophets album includes this list of episodes:

• Joshua
• Samson
• Samuel
• Elijah
• Jeremiah
• Jonah
• Goliath

3.0 out of 5 stars Stories Too Truncated, Average Telling of Great Stories October 30, 2012
By 4Nbahu
Verified Purchase
I normally like Children's Bibles. They take the action of the stories and tell it in a simple manner. In this version, I found the stories to be too truncated. I also felt some of the language was stilted. I realize that this is done in comic book format, yet it would have been better to include more panels and better explanations than to leave out so much of the stories.

While I feel the stories should have been expanded, it is still a decent representation. The illustrations are clear and appropriate. Overall, I found it to be an average piece of work.

1.0 out of 5 stars Mediocre product and FAKE REVIEWS January 28, 2013
Verified Purchase
Look through the reviews. Many of the 4- & 5-star reviews don't even mention the book itself. Too many reviews are obviously fake to bring the rating up. That's the main reason I gave this 1 star ... to balance out the fake reviews.

As for the book, itself, it is poorly written with a lot of grammar and spelling mistakes. Some of the stories are too abbreviated, leaving out important parts of the Bible story. Some of the story choices were not what I would consider best choices. For example, Jeremiah was just strange, ending with death, destruction, and slavery. David's story was about Goliath and David's adultery with Bathsheba and murder of Uriah, but none of his other successes or even why he was a "man after God's own heart". I liked Isaiah's story, even though his name was misspelled in the first frame of the story.

Overall, I've seen better Old Testament Bible stories for kids and I will be deleting this from my Kindle.

2.0 out of 5 stars Difficult to read December 17, 2012
The stories here are fairly accurate considering the brevity of the text. The problem is that the grammar is often incorrect, words are missing, and words are misspelled. All this makes it difficult to read, especially for early readers. Also, the comic book aspect is deceiving. This book tells the stories fairly accurately, so the content can be rather adult. A parent should read this with their child.

Well I only downloaded it to read what is was about. But to be frank my not even my 5 year old sister found this enjoyable . No offence it's just my opinion but this book needs to get a lot of upgrades to the 24th century before getting any good reviews.

1.0 out of 5 stars Its not for a Kindle or E-reader May 4, 2013
By tiana
Verified Purchase
I could not read those tiny words on my Kindle and I could not enlarge the pages.

The full page is only a quarter of my screen or less on my 10in tablet.

I have pretty good eye sight but I wont be reading this to my child or asking my child to read it. A complete waste.

I am sure it would be fine if I just bought a paper back book.

3.0 out of 5 stars A little bit too concise!
I believe children are able to comprehend a bit more information than what was conveyed in these accounts of Biblical history.
