We own many of the Beginner Bible series and typically I recommend them for all of my children which range in age from 2 to 7. Another reviewer states these are "cartoonish" in nature. Yes, that is true and it happens to be exactly what I like about the series. They are colorful and there is no wondering what the picture is of. These books make biblical stories come to life for small children in ways that they can understand. That being said, typically these books cover one subject and have very few words on each page so that the child can walk away with pretty good depth about the story being told. This book is a little different than most and this is why I'd recommend it for a slightly older audience of 5 to 7 year olds. This book attempts to capture Jesus entire life up through Easter through brief snippets and bible references. Subjects are covered in small doses(2-3 pages)and include His miracles, palm sunday, washing the disciples feast, the Last Supper, His arrest and crucifixtion, and Easter day. For a smaller child this is a lot of information to cover in one small book. My two year old lost interest quickly although he generally likes these books a lot. I thought it was good for my 5 year old, but in his case I needed to explain a lot more than was presented. It's nice because each section provides the scripture references so you can have your own discussions. That being said, I think you could use this book as a jumping off point for the Easter story and have some really good conversation, but it will take a bit of thought. Because each subject is covered in such small doses I felt it would be lacking to not add a litte more of the story as we went through it. The pictures are good and I think it's a nice purchase.Read more ›

This review is in 2 parts--one for the actual content and the second for the suitability for the Kindle or other e-reader device.

As a story I was initially disappointed. My first thought was, considering the vocabulary, the story was too basic. The format was less of a narration and consisted more of simple statements and concepts being presented.

As I thought about it more I realized this would actually lend itself VERY well to reading together--every couple pages has a small reading, followed by an illustration and a couple sentences which would be perfect to use as discussion points--why are people jealous, why does Jesus wash the feet of the disciples and what does that mean?

This is where I give the 5 stars.

Now, regarding the Kindle version...I think the Kindle e-Ink is not the optimal presentation for this book. I love my Kindle and I think e-Ink is great for reading, but not so great for an illustration type book.

The illustrations are easy to see and look quite nice in grey scale, but just looking at the cover on the computer screen really shows how much more interesting it would be in color.

I think reading on a Kindle application on a color screen would be much more suitable, and with more screen real estate the pictures and associated words could appear on the same page. I also think the paper version is great for children, to get the tactile input of reading as well.

This is one book I would prefer either in paper or on a larger/color screen.

Definitely recommended for some interactive reading and discussions with little ones.

A quick little read to share with the little ones in your life. Not very thought provoking. I prefer books that make the little ones ask questions. This is more of a cartoon book.

We love all The Beginners Bible items. This one was perfect to use for all 3 of our sons from learning to read 5 year old to our 7 and 8 year old sons who are independent readers. They love the bright art work and the way its put into words they can understand. Short pages and the Bright colors is the first thing they look for at this age. Perfect to give as a gift in a Easter basket, Sunday school or use in a homeschool class for a short lesson to add to Bible time during the Easter break.
