The storybook Bible is our favorite children's Bible that we have found.

There is no budget, I purchase all the materials & supplies myself, so I wouldn't have been able to buy it anyway.

I love this curriculum. I've used the Bible with my boys (4 1/2 and 3) for a couple years now, and was so excited when the curriculum came out. I volunteer with 2-3 year old kids at church, and would use some of the activities with them, and shorten it to their needs. It is not a preschool curriculum, but you can definitely make it work with them. There is enough material to teach up to an hour, but is customizable so it would fit any time frame. My church will be using the curriculum in their Sunday school for their kindergarten-2nd grade. I will be using it with my boys. There are lots of different options with the curriculum, from reading the stories to the kids, to having them listen to the audio recording, to playing the little videos for each story for them. Some of the activities are not at the level for my 3 year old, but my 4 1/2 year old can do most of them. I would definitely recommend getting this curriculum!

I love the JSB! It is a wonderful tool to help young children learn about Jesus. I have been looking over the curriculum that I just received. The videos and audio CD's are wonderful and will capture their attention. I have also taken some time to look over the PDF files of the lessons that come on the DVD-ROM. I have found some mistakes and some errors in printables that are to be sent home with the children. It took much longer for me to get the Curriculum Kit than Zondervan had said. I wish they took a little more time to edit more carefully to put out a GREAT curriculum instead of an OK curriculum.

This curriculum has not only transformed the way we view the Bible in our ministry to children at our church, it consistently points us back to Jesus--even via the Old Testament stories. For many years we have wanted something that would show children that God is the God of both the Old and New Testaments and that the entire Bible is one big story pointing us to an amazing Savior...and now we have found it! The writers have done a tremendous job at bringing this Storybook Bible to curriculum form...and I even tried it at home with my own kids and they loved it! They especially loved the story of creation and making the huge poster as a craft project! Thank you to my good friend, Sally Lloyd-Jones and her team for creating something that the children's ministry in many churches are thirsty for!

Format: Paperback
I do like to listen to David Suchet read the stories and my children listen to him well. However, my older children notice that the stories are not exactly like the Bible. For example, the author added parts to Abraham and Isaac after the burnt offering where they hugged for a long time and were sitting under the stars that night. It does bug me a little that the stories are not exactly like in the Bible, although I do understand where she is going with the point that Jesus is in every story. Also I agree with the other reviewers that the lessons were not well written and planned. We have decided not to do this curriculum or read the book any longer. If you are looking for preschooler bible stories, this is good. If you are looking for an illustrated Bible for elementary children, this is not it.

This program pulls together the whole Bible and helps us teach Jesus in every Sunday School lesson!

The Jesus Storybook Bible and CDs are great, but the teaching program is excellent - obviously written by experienced teachers - with lots of ideas, enthusiasm and clear, easy-to-implement activities!

There are great hands-on activities and a complete collection of take-home worksheets, which wonderfully encourage parents to reinforce and ask questions about the lesson and memory verse.

I haven't seen such a well thought-out program until now. Thankyou very much for this exciting resource!

As a Sunday School teacher for 13 years I can honestly say this is the best cirriculum that I have ever used. If you're looking at this cirriculum you probably are already very familiar with how wonderful the Jesus Storybook Bible is and how great it is to show children how the whole bible is really a story about Jesus and not just about people in history and moral lessons. I teach at a non-traditional church that meets in the gym of an elementary school and the space we have for the kids to learn in is roughly 10x5 feet. This cirriculum is really suited to that as it assumes you have no permanent classroom so none of the activites require permanent fixtures and they also keep materials and technology to a minimum (which is quite awesome as each of my teachers/volunteers are required to provide all of their own materials). The lessons are full of great ideas and guidance which gives me confidence that it should be easy to use for even the most inexperienced teachers (and also teaching them a few things along the way). The videos that come along with it our beautiful and I find myself watching them for fun. they use the pictures from the Bible in a 3D/Pop up sort of way. I haven't gotten a chance to use a fine tooth comb over the grammar so I can't really comment on the editing. I really believe any Sunday School program would be wise to use this.

How do I even begin? Ok, let's start with the Bible. The Jesus Storybook Bible is enchanting and unlike any storybook Bible I have experienced thus far (and trust me, I've seen a few!). Every single story in this storybook Bible points to Jesus. From the creation and Adam and Eve's fall, Jesus is the solution. In the building of the Tower of Babel, Jesus is the answer. When Abraham leads his son Isaac to the alter, Christ is the lamb promised. Every story, every parable, every word comes down to Jesus Christ from the beginning and all the way until the end. It is solid in a Biblical foundation and traces everything to redemption through Jesus.

Reading through the physical Bible is an experience with the vivid illustrations that definitely interest a child (any anyone's mind). But there is so much more... listening to the audio version of the Bible is enchanting. David Suchet (reminds me of Jim Dale) reads with such voices that bring the characters off the page. We've found that you can read along, or just listen in the background - maybe during breakfast or getting ready for a nap. The beginning segment states is all and brings it to life.

"No, the Bible isn't a book of rules, or a book of heroes. The Bible is most of all a Story. It's an adventure story about a young Hero who comes from a far country to win back his lost treasure. It's a love story about a brave Prince who leaves his palace, his throne--everything--to rescue the one he loves. It's like the most wonderful of fairy tales that has come true in real life!

You see, the best thing about this Story is--it's true...[It's a] Story of how God loves his children and comes to rescue them."

It makes my heart smile!
