Overview

The Bible is so much more than a collection of stories.
It is the overarching message of God’s love for us and a practical guide to daily living. So often our littlest children hear these stories but miss out on how to apply the principles to their lives. The Character Builder’s Bible highlights core character traits that the Bible teaches and suggests fun, practical ways to live out these truths so that little minds can understand. Each Bible narrative is told simply, is tied to a positive attribute like obedience or humility, and is followed with a real-life example of how kids can apply the lesson in their own lives.

Featuring 60 Bible stories with colorful illustrations, definitions, and memory verses, The Character Builder’s Bible will show your little ones that God’s Word is relevant to their lives and will help you instill biblical character in their hearts.

Before we even talk about the stories in the book, those illustrations! Oh my grits and gravy they are precious and engaging and amazing and I fell in love with this book through the illustrations. The rest of it all helped as well but good gravy yes. I feel like the quality of the art invites the child into the stories and intended truths that are portrayed, giving them access to dig deeper as well. Not only were they precious and inviting but the cultural diversity in each picture also invited deeper understanding and another way to share with a child means to embrace the character traits found in this book, especially when not everyone lives in a culturally diverse location. Small farming towns in the Midwest aren’t known to really have a great sense of diversity. I appreciated that the table of contents was broken down by old and new testament as well as the individual that was featured in the story. I do wish however that there was also a break down of stories by the character trait they embraced. Sometimes you want to spend more time on a certain trait and hunting through the book with a Minion sitting with you isn’t quite the thrilling experience I am portraying here. I appreciated that Bible verse references were given so that the it was easy to incorporate those verses into the story from the translation of parental preference. I even loved the little extras. The comics that furthered the story, and the definitions with extended information on character traits. Moo settled herself in with the book for an afternoon and with a lot of help with words read to herself. Her favorite part was the pictures and said it was ‘totally 5 fingers Meme’. Goobie was also drawn into the pictures and enjoyed having the stories read to him. He was more hesitant with the idea that the ideas were relevant to him and I got of ‘I don’t know Meme, you choose’. That’s pretty normal around here. He is one that likes to take an idea and ponder on it and ruminate and then out of the blue will come to you with questions or statements. He’s a 5 finger rating as well. Squirt well, she’s two. She looked at the pictures, didn’t want to settle down for a story time and just grinned at me. She kept coming back to look at the pictures however. I think with time it will be a blessing to her as well. This little household found the book to be a blessing that will be returned to time and time again as the Minions grow up and grow in maturity and the character traits take on new meaning. I was provided a complimentary copy of this book by Tyndale House Publishers. I was not compensated for this review and all thoughts and opinions expressed are my own. I was not required to write a positive review.

This particular Bible features 60 stories from the Old and New Testaments. Each story is tied to a specific character trait and explained through scripture, definitions of the character trait, memory verses, and perhaps my favorite part, explanations of how to live the character trait in everyday life.  I absolutely love looking through The Character Builder's Bible. The illustrations are so fun and draw my eye immediately. I love the accessibility of the stories for kids, and as I mentioned before, I love that it shares exactly how to practice the character trait in everyday life. It's not always easy to think of examples in the spur of the moment, and in this case, the work has been done for you!  Another fun little piece is the last page of the Bible. The last page has a prayer for your child to pray that acknowledges their need for Jesus in their life.  The only thing I wish The Character Builder's Bible had is a listing of the character traits. There is a list of each of the stories, but it's not easy to tell which character trait each story is tied to. I think I'll be going through the Bible and writing each trait in the table of contents myself. It will be helpful to be able to put a story to the specific thing we are learning about. This might mean jumping around in the Bible a bit. I received a copy of this book from Tyndale House. This review is my own, honest opinion.
