“Besides marvelous stories to rival any edge-of the-seat movie, there are paraphrases of popular psalms and Old Testament words of wisdom and prophecy. The handsome pictures and the decorated borders employ a rich palette of colors and patterns, giving The Bible for Children a contemporary look.” --Booklist

This is a great bed time story bible for young kids. My toddlers love it. The stories are short and concise but the core of the story is not jeopardized. It is a great book for teaching kids bible stories. I think it may be to simple for the 8 to 12 age bracket that they suggest.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
