5.0 out of 5 stars A beautiful book 3 Oct 2009
By A. Dean
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
I found this book after much searching. As all the children's Bibles I have come across do not include the Psalms, this book helps to fill that gap. It has 40 paraphrased Psalms in it, with large print on one page and a beautiful illustration on the next page (similar stlye to the front cover). Psalm 1, for example, is paraphrased: "When I listen to you, God, when I do what you ask me to, I am like a tree planted by a river, a tree full of fruit with leaves that are always green."

5.0 out of 5 stars Psalms for young children 10 Sep 2011
By Jacks
This is an excellent book for young children. Our four year old loves to choose which psalms he wants to read. It puts the psalms in very simple language making these Bible passages accessible to all.

5.0 out of 5 stars Beautiful Psalms 20 July 2014
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
This collection of around 40 of the Psalms has been paraphrased really well for children from about 2 years old upwards. Each Psalm it covers is summarised into about one verse long so you do not get much detail, but that summary does convey the emotions of the Psalms well. An example is Psalm 69 "When I am sad it feels like I'm underwater, like I'm stuck in the mud, or at the bottom of a dark hole. Pull me from this dark place, God! Save me! I need your help!" Or Psalm 47 "Let's clap our hands and shout with joy, because God is a great stong king! Blow the trumpet for our king! God is king of all the earth. Let's celebrate with songs!" Most story bibles do not cover much in Psalms so this is a great way to introduce young ones to the beauty of Psalms, where so many of us adults frquently turn in times of stress and joy.

4.0 out of 5 stars Psalms to which chidren can relate 25 Aug 2009
By p31Mom - Published on
Simple, direct phrasing of the Psalms so that young children can relate. Psalms are the main thing that I read out loud during Bible time to son at his age so he has enjoyed having some for his own. Every two pages features several sentences from a specific Psalms. On the oppossing page is the illustration for that particular pharaphrased chapter. The book dosn't rewrite, just pharaphrase so some of the sentences don't exactly flow or talk about the same thing but they do reflect the Psalm they are paraphrasing.
The art work is ok, quality but not exactly my style. Rather fanciful and not always a reflection of the Psalm. Son enjoyed. Seems to be Biblically correct.

5.0 out of 5 stars This Book is a Blessing Sent From God! 27 Sep 2010
By Cassandra Duggan and Douglas Bowman - Published on
When I saw Psalms for Young Children, I new it was going to be a favorite for my 4 and 7 year old! We love this book for several reasons. This book has helped my children to express feelings of sadness, fear, love, and joy. When they are reading, I see a sense of peace and comfort come over them. The Psalms are paraphrased in a very child-friendly way, with a large easy to read font (great for early readers). Each page has a full -page colorful painting, which will inspire your child to also want to make a picture for God. This book has inspired us so much, that we now wake-up each morning and write our own psalms for God! Praise God for this book, it has been a true blessing.

5.0 out of 5 stars Psalms for Young Children 22 Dec 2008
By Kari - Published on
We borrowed this book from the library and my kids loved it. They, ages 8, 6, and 4, took turns reading the Psalms. We finished the book much to the dismay of especially my oldest, he cried! So, I bought it for them for Christmas.
The book came promptly and in great condition. I'm sure we'll enjoy for generations.

5.0 out of 5 stars Lovely book for adults as well as children 13 Feb 2010
By Linda C. Macri - Published on
I had borrowed this book from the library for my three-year-old twins and found that it was so beautiful I wanted them to own it. The drawings are lovely, but the translations of the psalms into child-accessible language and ideas is truly inspired; it gave me new understanding of the psalms and their order and interrelationship.

5.0 out of 5 stars A beautiful little book 16 Sep 2011
By Dallas Mom - Published on
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
This is a wonderful book and we're so pleased to have it in our library. The paraphrases of psalms are just right for our two year old, and frankly---for grown-ups, too! Simple, meaningful prose and the illustrations are gorgeous. This is one of the books we cycle through for evening family devotions, just reading 3-4 per sitting.
