Format: Hardcover
It is a good Bible for children who are learning to read, but not suitable for reading and teaching accurate bible history or lessons to young school age children. The stories are simplistic, and, as one reviewer suggested, kind of "leave you hanging". The illustrations are also simple, and very "cartoonish". Also, many good Bible stories are missing altogether.

If you want an accurate, easy to understand, complete Bible Story book with beautiful, "true to the times" illustrations, I suggest the "Children's Bible in 365 Stories" by Mary Batchelor. I bought that along with this one, and we liked that one much better.

For those who enjoyed the Beginner's Bible by Karyn Henley, this is NOT it! I gave Karyn's bible to my son seven years ago and was looking for a replacement for my daughter. I bought this bible by mistake because the illistrations and title were so similar and have been hugely disappointed. It lacks depth and purpose in the stories. This book might as well been written by an athiest who can spout out a story line but lacks any genuine understanding behind the story. If looking for a children's bible I strongly recommend finding a Beginner's Bible by Karen Henley (used or new) rather than settling for this or any other children's edition that reduces these stories to a trite sequence of events.

This Bible has been the perfect teaching tool for my child. The illustrations are vibrant and engaging, the text is appropriate for young readers, and the division of stories comes at the right spacing for brief attention spans. This is not a literal, word-per-word excerpt from the Bible, but rather a paraphrasing into not only vocabulary but tone that is just right for children. I have begun to purchase this and give it out to friends with new babies, in hopes that their kids will grow up with this text too. A great version of the Bible.

Many Bible stories have serious and often brutal content --- floods, rains of fire, disfiguring disease, sacrifice, mauling by lions, and human torture. Remembering fearful thoughts in my own childhood after hearing these stories and seeing pictures in a family Bible storybook, I really searched for a way to introduce my grandson to a loving God. This simple little book is colorful, accurate, entertaining and has more emphasis on the wonder and miracles of God than the evil in the world. There is plenty of time for my grandson to learn about that! Highly recommended for the pre-schooler and early reader.

I bought this as a baptism gift for my nephew, and I was SO happy to find it. The stories are simple, but still comprehensive and interesting, and the pictures are really compelling. I looked at a lot of illustrated bibles for children, and this was the only one I found with multicultural drawings, which was really important to me. I didn't want to buy my nephew a book that depicted all of God's children as blonde, blue-eyed Caucasians. This bible has great stories AND great pictures and I absolutely recommend it.

The Beginners Bible picks out the popular events of the Old and New Testament and is written in simple easy-to-understand way for kids 2 years old to about 7 years old. The illustrations are wonderfully done and my daughter and I read it at least twice over when she was about 3.

I researched a LOT of (children's) Bibles before buying this one - and I can tell you this one is simply the best. The illustrations are outstanding and the associated text with each picture is very pleasant to read to our five year old every night.

Format: Hardcover
This is such a nice Bible - the illustrations are just beautiful and very well done. My only complaint is that some of the stories leave you hanging the way they're written and don't really go into a little more explanation like they should. Other than that, we just love this Bible. My little one really liked the "snake" story, as he calls it, meaning Adam and Eve. Makes for a very long explanation, however, when they ask about who the snake really is and why Adam and Eve got kicked out of the Garden of Eden. Then, tie all that into why Jesus came and you've got an all night discussion! Pretty neat stuff too - if your little one enjoys figuring out where Jesus is in all the stories, point out that He's always the one in purple, the color of royalty. The crucifixion story is very well done and not made to be all that scary. Just be ready for tons of questions throughout this whole book. Highly recommend!
