I bought this for my Godsons Christening present after seeing other books in the ' Beginner' range. I was a bit worried about buying without actually seeing it first, but I was very impressed with it, and would highly recommend it to others who wish to teach / tell bible stories to their children. It is my daughters 5th birthday soon, and as she doesn't have this book, I am including it on her 'present list' as she was very taken with the one that was bought for her cousin!

I'm a mother, a grandmother, a one time Sunday School teacher and a sometime Christian bookseller and for me, the Beginner's Bible is the best first Bible for little ones. The pictures are well drawn and coloured, the text is clear and scripturally correct. So I was happy to buy a copy for my youngest grandchild - newborn, they don't come much younger! Once a child is able to look at pictures you can read to them, so a child can be introduced to Bible stories at a very early age, written in a way that they will understand as they grow. And the reader will enjoy the stories too.

Not only is this a clearly set out and thorough first bible for children, it also has the best illustrations ever! Instantly appealing it backs up its colourful and attractive exterior with accessible adaptations of all the major bible 'stories'. Buy this for your child without delay!

Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
The Bible of choice to present at Baptisms. I have looked at several, of varying quality. Some are unreadable (e.g. King James Versions in tiny print) and obviously just designed to be kept in a box; others are doctrinally unsound (e.g. missing out the Easter story, the cornerstone of the Christian faith, or mangling the original stories beyond recognition). This one offers a faithful re-telling of the Scriptures, with biblical references to the stories for those who want to read them in full in an adult Bible. The language is gentle and consistent throughout, easy to read aloud and even easy for young learners to remember (to our surprise, our two-year old soon learned the Christmas story, her favourite, off by heart!). It even provides an easy starting place for adults to learn the 'basics' of each story so that they have some context into which to read the full versions.
The highest praise of this book must go of course to the illustrations, which are perfect.

My 3 year old loves this bible, that we have to read from it every night. i love the simplicity of the wordings and how it has been kept very brief for little ones...excellent purchase.

12 of 14 people found the following review helpful By Reflection Haiku on 19 Sept. 2010
Format: Hardcover
This is a very inviting book that accomplishes two things together: it familiarizes the kids with names and timeless stories from the Bible and it further encourages young children (ages 3-6) to read independently as every page contains only two to five simple sentences. Colorful pictures and smooth storytelling are the excellent features of the BEGINNER's BIBLE and the major stories in Old Testament (from Adam and Eve to Joseph's colorful robe, from the Wise King Solomon to Jonah & the Big Fish) as well as New Testament (from Jesus' birth to His teaching on a mountain, from His parables to His miracles, from His fructification to His risen) are all included. It will fill little children's heart with grace and prepare them for further bible studies.

A perfect baptism present. Very colourful with beautifully illustrated stories told in today's language. Is already being used for bedtime stories. Definitely recommend.

'The Beginner's Bible' is just the right mix of text and pictures to introduce the young to the stories of the bible. A good book to have for many years.
