Nerdy Ned offers a "Christian alternative" to books like Timmy Failure and Diary of a Wimpy Kid series. Nerdy Ned re-tells the "highlights" of the Bible and I'm torn by it. But mostly, I'm not a fan.
I'm sure the intention was admirable - and the execution is certainly appealing - but I'm a bit perturbed by the frivolous nature with which this book treats the Bible.
It's certainly cute to hear a child convey the lessons they've learned in a recent Sunday School class, but when it's an adult using a childish voice, it's something different.You end up with a copy of a copy (of a copy of a copy and so on).
If you read a passage of scripture to a child and they re-tell it in a simplified way, it's evidence that they've heard what you read and processed it as they attempt to understand it. When you preach down to them, however, it discourages them from actually making it their own. They don't process it in the same way and the important questions that result from honest Bible study aren't there.
They assume it's already answered and they tend to check out.
There is definitely a place for this book (and it's quite clever and enjoyable) and I'll certainly be sharing it with my boys. But, I HIGHLY, STRONGLY, SERIOUSLY recommend balancing it with a devotional like Grace for the Moment: 365 Devotions for Kids and/or a Bible study like Awesome Bible Verses Every Kid Should Know: ...and What They Mean (that even has "awesome" in the title, too).
I'm not a wet blanket, I promise. I'm just pulling for the next generation...

Totally Awesome, Super-Cool Bible Stories is an unique look at the Bible through the eyes of a child. The book kind or reminded my Diary of A Wimpy Kid. While the lessons may not be verbatim what the Bible states, I think that it is meant to be told in a way that the reader (child) can understand. However, as with any Biblical teaching this should be in addition to the Bible and not as a replacement for the Bible. This would make an incredible learning tool to be used in conjunction with Sunday school lessons for young children as it most certainly will capture their attention. It also helps to reinforce what the reader just learned by giving them a place to draw what they've learned.
This was an interesting attempt to gain the attention of our children in an effort to get them interested in the Bible.
