Format: Hardcover
This larger edition of the Children's Illustrated Bible has large pictures plus print that is big enough to be very easily read. (The smaller book, ISBN number 0-7894-5331-2, is about 2/3 the size of this book.)

The pictures are realistic and not the silly cortoon-like figures you see in some children's bibles. I have read through a few of the stories, and they are short, precise and very well written. Interesting background information is given and illistrated in the margins.

The high quality of the writting, the background information and the pictures deserve a 5-star rating. However, the book is not perfect. For instance, Hasting has Jesus teaching the Lord's prayer as "Our Lord in heaven..."

Children's Bibles are probably the genre of books I read the most critically and carefully. These books of stories can greatly enhance our children's grasp of Biblical truth and build a frame in their minds for future Biblical learning to be added onto, or they can cause lasting damage through misrepresenting, undermining, or falsely teaching what the Bible is about. I had casually flipped through The Children's Illustrated Bible in stores and liked the realistic illustrations and informative sidebars with archeological, geological, and historical information and photographs. I was looking forward to a chance to review it, hoping that my opinions would remain positive after a closer inspection.

Unfortunately, this was not the case. I read every word on every page of this 309 page book. I put a sticky tab with notes on each page I had questions/issues with. There were a LOT of notes sticking out of this book when I was done.

What first drew me to this book were the realistic and detailed illustrations. While this was a strength with some stories, with others it was a definite draw-back. For example, while it is true that Adam and Eve were going "au natural" in the garden, I would prefer them to be a little more covered when my young preschooler reads her story Bible! Nor, do I want her to see a painting, classic or not, of baby Jesus being circumcised. And I most definitely don't want her to study and ponder a picture of Daniel in the lions' den, where the den has been accurately portrayed filled with human skulls, bones, and blood dripping down the rocks and off of the lion's teeth.

If you are thinking of purchasing this bible, spend the extra money and purchase the larger book. This one is a nice personal size but the print is so small it is hard to read. I bought it for my granddaughter who told me it hurt her eyes to read it.

I am extremely pleased with the DK Children's Illustrated Bible. When I was browsing the bookstore for young people's bibles, I was surprised to find that there were Catholic Bibles and Baptist Bibles. Naively, I had expected all bibles would be more or less the same except for the illustrations.

The DK Bible manages to fend off internecine religious wars by having employed a cast of religious, historical and educational experts in the creation of this work. The "consultants" list on the copyright page includes two reverends, a rabbi, a sister and a father, as well as two experts from the Western Asiatic Department of the British Museum. In addition to the stories themselves, written by Selina Hastings, the introduction and section openers were written by the educational consultant, Geoffrey Marshall-Taylor. Together with the 11 editors and designers listed on the same page, these experts, the author and the illustrator have created a work that serves the several communities seeking a quality children's bible, and it serves those communities very well.

This Children's Bible has many strengths and attributes:

* The DK Children's Bible is fundamentally designed as a storybook. There are approximately 140 stories of two or three pages each, all of which seem to have a comprehensible beginning, middle and end (i.e., a strict story arc that may not be easily identified in the meandering source material).

* The DK Children's Bible is also an attractive picture book. Each story is illustrated with at least one and as many as three illustrations by Eric Thomas. The Thomas illustrations appear to be in colored pencil, or possibly pastel or crayon, and they are generally representative and clear.

This book is well composed.
The illustrations and photographs are beautiful and interesting.Many photos show ancient things we normally don't see today.
I recommend this for adults as well as children.The writing is very easily understood and you'll love the pictures.
Highly recommended.

Let me first say that my son has this Bible in the normal size version. I thought I would order one from here to give as a gift for my nephew. Like most here, I thought I was buying the larger version of this book. I had no idea it was 1/4 the size. There is way too much text (thus a very small font) to make this wonderful Bible to be of any use. I had to return it.
