Disclosure: I received a copy of the below book from Kregel Publications. Following is my honest opinion of the book.
After reading through a 40 day devotional about Jesus (and including my little one on the journey), I discovered that there is a Bible in a year just for children! While the devotional is only 40 days, the children’s Bible stories are divided up into 365 days – an entire year. (See more about the book below.)
Each page is numbered (1-365) so that you don’t get confused. It’s in spiral bound, two sided form with the ability to stand up. Each page is a short story based on the Bible. It starts with the Old Testament story of God’s creation and ends with the New Testaments story of Paul living in Rome. While it doesn’t cover the entire Bible, I think the stories included are appropriately selected for children. The illustrations are beautiful portrayals of each story.
This would make a perfect gift for the children in your lives.
The “Candle Day by Day Bible” by Juliet David, is a beautiful spiral-bound desktop calendar style book that lets you share the stories of the Bible with your little ones each day.
The book stands on it’s own, perfect for displaying on a desk or counter. There are 365 stories from the Bible covering the Old and New Testaments. It starts at the story of creation with “In the beginning” and ends with Paul arriving in Rome in “Rome at last!” I find that this book isn’t so much I feel much as a collection of simplified Bible stories.
Each page is numbered from 1 through 365 and features a story for each day of the year. The spiral binding makes it easy to flip the pages over each day. I would have liked these pages to have dates on them like “November 29” instead of a number like “333” to make it a true calendar.
With the exception of the historical Biblical names and places, each word is carefully chosen with your little ones in mind. Each retelling is a few paragraph long, which are a perfect length for little ones who want to learn a little more about their faith each day. I wish each page had an accompanying scripture. This would help anyone who wanted to learn more about the story for that day.
If you have read “Candle Day by Day: Walk with Jesus” then the illustrations will be familiar to you. There are several images shared between the two books. The images are beautiful and fit each story perfectly.
The “Candle Day by Day Bible” is a wonderful way to share your faith with your little one each an every day.It would make a beautiful gift this holiday season.
I received a complimentary copy of “Candle Day by Day Bible” from Kregel Publishing in exchange for my review. All opinions are 100% my own.
In the book, there are wonderful titles for the story. For example, there is '"Cousin John"' and '"A Boy's Lunch."' In the margins, there are scriptures for the small stories. There is also a paraphrase of what is happening or what is important to remember.
The calendar illustrations are brightly colored and creatively put together. Even a snake looks magical while the flies for the plague are slightly spooky and the Leprosy painting in the calendar might deserve more explanation to the child or at least, a warning about the spots on the man's face. After all, who knows what can spook a child?
I did feel a bit uncomfortable with the packaging. The book and calendar came separately in the mail. I suppose the separation gives the buyer the chance to make a choice whether he/she should buy the book or calendar.
However, the material is beautiful and perfect for a holiday gift or an any day present. Both are presented by Candle. These materials are a fun way to get a child involved with loving Bible stories and learning about the people in the Bible. There are questions in the small book's margins also. I applaud the artist, Jane Heyes, for the illustrations.
