The Beginners Bible is incredibly readable. Its design features only a few lines of text, keeping big words to a minimum, and bed time stories at a reasonable length. The background for the text is all white, making it easy to read in dim lighting or while you have a classroom of distracting kiddos. Additionally, the stories selected as features in the Beginners Bible are digestible and engaging to read aloud to kids of mixed ages and reading levels.
The images in the Beginners Bible are colorful, thoughtful and do a phenomenal job of telling the story of God through visual media. There are pictures on every page, each one enhancing the words found below. No more of the scary old testament paintings from the past, the Beginners Bible only features faces and people that kids see as approachable animations. In previous additions, I have been waiting for better and more colorful images or more precise pictures to help children depict and understand the story. With this edition, the wait is over. The pictures are cartoon like, which draws the child’s attention, yet realistic, which helps the children understand the merit of the story being told. Each picture is colored well, and the color scheme promotes a sense of continuity from Genesis all the way to Revelations.
The Beginners Bible is a quality book. Small fingers can do a surprising amount of damage, but the Beginners Bible holds up to even the most abrasive readers. The pages are sturdy and so durable that they do not rip even after your child reads the Christmas story 100 times. The cover holds its shape regardless of how many times it gets passed through play doh or across circle time. The bible is reliable and comes in at a low price, always around 10 dollars. I have spent upwards of 20 or 30 dollars on a children’s Bible in the past, but none have fared better than the Beginners Bible. The longevity of these Bibles helps me remind the children in my classrooms that scripture is enduring, and helps me cultivate a culture where kids want to consistently return to their favorite Bible stories.
I am a huge fan of the Beginners Bible. I have recommended it to friends, parents, and pastors alike. I have gifted this bible to families year after year, and never heard a complaint. They are a staple in my classrooms, and I highly encourage you to make the Beginners Bible a staple in your home or church. There is simply no better book out there when it comes to placing the Word of God into your child’s hands.
The stories are on the shorter side, but this just means that my niece asks to read several of them at a time. She can't get enough and asks to hear specific stories that's she's learned in church.
The stories are interesting and cover the salient points of each Bible story. The tales are broken down in a manner that makes it easy for a child to comprehend.
I enjoy reading along with her and answering her questions from each story. I'd recommend this as an introductory Bible for your little one who loves to hear about God's greatness and kindness. The illustrations are beautiful too.
As another reviewer pointed out, the stories are VERY short. My grandson's attention span is quite a bit longer than the stories and he is just really getting settled in well when SURPRISE, we're all done for the evening.
I would have preferred to read this one to, perhaps, a 2 year-old. I will probably keep this to get his little sister started at a much younger age.
In the meantime, I will be ordering another Bible in hopes that we can find something a bit more extensive, yet still understandable by my 4 year-old audience.
