A must for every child and an excellent Baptism present. Beautifully illustrated and the stories are well interpreted and well told. We have bought so many copies for schools, baptisms, grandchildren and godchildren.

If you are looking for a children's story Bible that will communicate the fundamentals of the Christian faith then this is a good choice. The virgin birth, Deity of Jesus Christ, crucifiction, buriel and resurrection are all covered using simple language.

I bought this for my 3 year old neice who was being christened into the RC Church. I felt it was a very competent introduction to the Bible.

Format: Hardcover
The stories are well written and in easy to understand language for children. They have many positive messages that can be used for examples in good behaviour and morals in this day and age. I have read this book cover to cover with my children many times and I would not say that I was a deeply religious person. The stories are very enjoyable in their own right. The latest purchases were for gifts.

My 5 and 7 year old love this bible. It covers the main stories of both old and new testament in accessible ways, while still handling complex issues such as pentecost accurately. My 7 year old enjoyed reading it to herself as her reading improved. Even her non-churchgoing best friend loved it as a birthday present.
Well done Lion!

10 of 11 people found the following review helpful By Denise on 20 Oct. 2011
Format: Hardcover
This is an excellent introduction to the bible. The stories are detailed enough to bring across the essence of the story but not too long for a bedtime read. My 3 year old daughter loves this. I wrote this review though to highlight to others that this bible comes in 2 sizes. The £7.69 version is a good size so that the child can see the pictures etc (each page is about half an A4 size). The £3.99 one is much smaller, the sort of size of an adult compact bible, which in my opinion is too small for sharing with a young child. You can see what the exact dimensions are by looking at the product details section. Wanted to highlight this as I bought a second one as a gift and was surprised when I received it to find it was so much smaller than our first one. Hope this helps others!

This 'child-friendly' Bible is a great way of starting your childs experience of the stories in the Bible. The stories have been well & accurately adapted for the youg reader/ listener. Our 3 year old loves to have all the stories read to her over & over again.

As a church we use this Bible to give to children who are baptised or dedicated. It is a great starter Bible.
