There is just one major problem I run into over and over in it though: the author makes assumptions as to the thoughts, feelings, and intentions of the people and even of God, interpretations not present in the actual Bible. It's fine to discuss possible or likely thoughts, feelings, and intentions, but adding it amidst things otherwise faithfully paraphrased is confusing and awkward. I find myself needing to skip the sentences she does this in, sometimes catching it in the middle and stopping, or discussing it further with my son to clarify.
There aren't as many pictures as in many bible story books and it does take longer to get through each part than in others. The inclusion of so much more than the big children's Bible stories (you know, just covering Eden, Noah, David&Goliath, Daniel, Jonah, and similar condensing in the NT) is great though and hitting almost all the points of each story is excellent.
I would still recommend the book, but read aloud with caution. Take care with the interjections and interpretations, especially of what God intended to do or felt, as they're based on tradition and opinion not scripture.
I agree with the other reviews that I find myself hesitating as I read. The editors draw conclusions about texts. I believe it's ok to infer things from context, but if the Bible didn't say it, then don't mention how God 'feels'. I'd rather read the passage, ask my kids questions, then help them find the theme for themselves. Granted it's hard to get my kids inductively looking at scripture at age 3&5 BUT I think its good to make them think and start letting God help them interpret.
The next big issue is the artwork. My wife and I have purchased other Bibles for our children that have WAY more multiethnic images than this. A Blonde hair blue eye Jesus is a cultural lie from the pit of Hell in my opinion and is a hindrance to talking about Jesus to various cultures. We used this as part of our homeschool Sonlight curriculum and their other reading material is wonderfully multi class AND multi racial- So I was surprised at the Bible Choice.
That being said, the book is a great summation of most of the overarching themes/stories (you lose the minor prophets in the OT). I have been challenged when reading aloud to the kids. We'll see how the other Bibles assigned turn out, but I'm shopping
Also , we thank God that it was mailed speedily, early even, and in great condition!!! :)
