    Makes reading Bible stories fun for kids

    We bought this book for my daughter to read during church. While she is not interested in listening to the mass, she loved reading this book so much that she has read it a total of 3 times in 1 month. My daughter just turned seven, but was able to read fluently (with the exception of a few city and character names). The stories are just long enough to complete the event, without losing her interest in details. She has shared the stories with our family members and our friends, repeating the lines verbatim. She has also related the characters in the book to the same characters discussed during mass and is now genuinely intersted in learning more about the Bible. There is also a Bible verse at the end of each story expanding her understanding from just the "kid-friendly" verbiage.

    From my daughter:
    I really liked this book because the stories were fun to read and exciting. My favorites are "Jesus Is Alive", "Lazarus Lives", "Jesus Heals a Blind Man" and "Run for Her Life"

    The Adventure Bible Storybook written by Catherine DeVries and

    The Adventure Bible Storybook written by Catherine DeVries and illustrated by Jim Madsen is a newly published book of bible stories for young children. Having read many children's bible storybooks, I feel this new edition stands out most for its beautiful full color illustrations and the audio CDs. There are many children's bibles and bible storybooks on the market. Some children's bible story books consist of simply drawn washed out, pastel cartoons or line cartoons. This book contains richly colored artwork which will capture the attention of children of all ages. As seen with many bible storybooks for young children, the stories in this volume are simplified, and brief. While they are based on actual bible stories, they are paraphrased. Narrative dialog is added to make it more like a story. The oversimplification and story telling style makes it appropriate for very young children. Yet this is a bible storybook that children will outgrow- in contrast to an actual bible adapted for children.

    Also contained with this deluxe set are two disks of audio CDs containing the text of the bible stories. The stories are complete with wonderful sound effects and music. It is not simply a reading of text alone. This reinforces that material making it more convenient and as well as entertaining with multimedia. My eight year old enjoyed following along with the bible storybook and audio cd at the same time. This element of interaction encourages young children in a new way to read the or in this case, listen to stories of the bible. Basically you can take this CD and put it in any computer or CD player for children of all ages to hear the bible stories. Strict bible purists may not appreciate the fact that actual bible scripture is not used in this bible story book. For each story, a corresponding bible passage is referenced but the actual bible text is not included. The small scale of the book makes it a perfect size for smaller hands. Nevertheless this bible story book is more appropriate to by read by parents and adults to younger children. As a blogger for Booksneeze I received this book published by Thomas Nelson for the purpose of writing this review.

    "Adventure Bible Storybook" by Catherine DeVries is a

    "Adventure Bible Storybook" by Catherine DeVries is a children's Bible that retells some of the most popular stories from the Bible. This Bible is also sold with audio CDs that read the text of this storybook so that younger children are able to follow along. The illustrations, by Jim Madsen, are bright and colorful, which will engage young readers. 




    The book itself does a good job of using age appropriate vocabulary in the stories, and the audio CDs are a fun way to share storytime with children, without always having to be the one reading! I thought that the stories themselves probably could have gone a little more into the details of the stories, but overall this was a great book for my young children. 




    I would recommend this book for children ages 4-7. The audio CD is perfect for younger children who are in the early stages of reading, as they can easily follow along in the book. This would be a good book for kids who can supplement and fill in those missing details with another children's Bible, or a parent to fill in the missing pieces for them.

    My Kids Love It!

    My son and daughter beg me to read this book to them. It reads in a fun catchy way with lots of delightfully descriptive imagery. My little one giggles and lights up when I read it. The only difficulty I have is getting them to let me stop after two stories. They want me to read another and another and another.
