My Bible Adventure Through God's Word: 52 Bible Stories for Kids by Johnny Hunt is the perfect adventure for kids! My kids absolutely love the stories in this book and have been asking to read this book every night before bed. They also love to cute artwork throughout and I often find them just thumbing through the book to look at the artwork. I also really like that the stories are simple enough for early readers to begin reading on their own or with family before bed. It's a terrific way to practice reading! My Bible Adventure Through God's Word: 52 Bible Stories for Kids by Johnny Hunt is a terrific weekly devotional that truly encourages kids to pray and grow in faith!

The quality of this book makes itself known the second it hits the hands. Packed to the brim with 52 Bible stories, children go on a weekly discovery of some of the most well-known Bible tales and are encouraged to take the message along with them. This is a hefty, little book with a solid cover, which guarantees it will really withstand a year long of weekly readings and then some. It's broken down into fifty-two chapters, one for each week.. Each of these chapters is around six pages long, which might seem daunting especially to kids at first, but the larger writing and slightly shorter text on each page, guarantee a nice length for a ten-fifteen minute devotion. Each chapter starts with a Bible verse. Unfortunately, there's no indication as to which Bible translation these are taken from. Each verse is followed by a 'Today's Adventure', which is basically a short recap of the Bible story in a way kids are sure to easily understand. I would have liked to see a bit of this applied to everyday life instead of a regurgitation, but as a clear Bible read, it's well done and brings across the story nicely. The short prayer is a lovely way to close off the reading, and as a last treat, there's a 'Take It With You. . .' thought--a short sentence which brings the whole point home and gives kids a thought to hang onto and digest. There are colorful illustrations the entire way through, which add a nice touch and are sure to help kids dive into the characters and tales. It's fun to simply explore those and get a feel of what each story will be about, so that even younger ones will love the chance to get their fingers on the book every now and then. These readings, however, are not for the youngest readers and are more fitting for ages 6 and up. Through these chapters, kids (and their families) gain a solid knowledge of the more well-known Bible stories and, most importantly, hear/read these words together. I received a complimentary copy from Booklook Bloggers and wanted to leave my honest thoughts.
My Bible Adventure- Through God's Word 52 Bible Stories for Kids By Johnny Hunt is a new full color devotional for young children that covers the bible in 52 weeks. Initially, I thought this book would be a bible story book- containing one bible story for each week of the year. This book is more of a hybrid "devo-bible"- somewhat between a bible story book and a devotional. Each week is based on a theme or story taken from the bible. But unlike a bible story book, the stories in this book are not simply a re-telling of stories of the bible in chronological order, but rather the spiritual concepts of the bible. For example in the first week "God made everything" story, the illustration is simple- a cartoon depiction of the earth. The brief narrative gives a simplified account of creation. Afterwords, the "Today's Adventure" article sums up the spiritual significance of creation in and applying the concept in a way that young children can understand. There is also a prayer that follows. The illustrations are very simple- more like graphics to compliment the story. Unlike other story book bibles, the illustrations are secondary to the text. If your child is ready to sit down and learn how to apply bible principles to real life, this book would make a great choice. Although the simple illustrations and cover would appeal to children as young as toddlers, the lengthy text to illustration ratio may be more appropriate for pre-schoolers and children up to first grade. For any parent that struggles with teaching a child how the bible is applicable to everyday life, this would make a good choice. For a first introduction to the bible, a more traditional bible story book would make a better choice. If you already have childrens' picture bibles and are looking for something to expand beyond the basic bible story, this would be a great choice. I received a copy of this book published by Tommy Nelson publishers as a blogger for Booklook.
