5.0 out of 5 stars The perfect Bible for a young person

Unfortunately, I have to admit I am rather disappointed and judging by the grim on my daughter's face she was not impressed either!...

5.0 out of 5 stars The perfect Bible for a young person, 20 May 2003
This review is from: The Children's Bible in 365 Stories (Paperback)
The Children's Bible in 365 Stories (one for every day of the year) picks out the highlights of the Bible and describes them in very accurate descriptions and is complimented by gorgeous drawings which help make this Bible one of the most colourful I have ever seen. From Genesis to Revelation, Old Testament to New Testament and from Moses to Jesus, this Bible is the perfect companion to any kid (or any adult for that matter) who wants to know about the Bible. My copy has fallen to pieces after years of reading, but I haven't finished with it yet!

5.0 out of 5 stars A delightful present, 11 May 2005

Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I brought this book as a present for my sister who needed a child friendly bible for her RE lessons. I've used mine in school for several years and find it presents the key messages in a simple, clear and enjoyable way with beautiful illustrations to match every story. Whether you religious or not, this book makes a great gift for any primary teacher or any child.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great for kids, ideal for grown-ups., 16 Feb 2009
This review is from: The Children's Bible in 365 Stories (Paperback)
When some adults asked my advice on "finding out what the whole Bible is really about" I advised them to buy this children's book and read it. It has pretty much all the "stories" - accurately if simply told - and although there are bits left out (the prophets, for instance,) it does an astonishingly good job of distilling the essence of the Bible. I've been teaching Sunday School for nearly twenty years, I've written children's Bible books myself, and I've read widely - yet I've never come across such a good version as this. If you are grown-up and find the Bible daunting, but would like to know a little more - read this. I promise, you won't have been short-changed.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Priceless Read for kids, 7 Mar 2010

This review is from: The Children's Bible in 365 Stories (Paperback)
I read these exciting stories to my grand kids and they keep asking for more! The stories are each bite size but they flow together beautifully to tell HIS-Story. In my opinion this is one of the best Children's Bibles covering more than the usual well known stories in a graphic way. Ten years olds should have no problem reading it. You'll never be sorry you bought this bargain!

I bought this for my godson, my sister who is a primary school teacher, says that the reading age is 9 to 10. He is only 8 so he will grow into it. The pictures are quite good too. It is a paraphrase as you would expect for this age, but I found it OK.

5.0 out of 5 stars you will want to read it once the kids go to sleep, 12 April 2007
This review is from: The Children's Bible in 365 Stories (Paperback)
I found this book to be a very interesting read for everybody regardless of religion. Ina time where materialism and greed has eclipsed the need for human values;it is essential that books like these inculcate our children with the use of simple language and graphics. A very good concept in that a story can be read per day every year. However, this book has such a repat value that you will want to read it once the kids go to sleep.

A really nice easy reading Bible for children. The pictures were great, with much detail and the day to day stories make it easy to hold their attention without it becoming long and drawn out. In fact i learnt alot too!

2.0 out of 5 stars Not what we were hoping for, at all, 28 May 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Children's Bible in 365 Stories (Paperback)
I have bought this book for my 4.5 year old after having read all these awesome reviews as a surprise for the good effort at the per-school ...
Unfortunately, I have to admit I am rather disappointed and judging by the grim on my daughter's face she was not impressed either!...
As my daughter is very keen on all sort of books for children - she brings a new one from her school every other day and throughout the time we've managed to build a quite extensive collection, too. I have finally decided to introduce her to some religious reading at home.
The Amazon fulfillment was spot on, make no mistake there. However, the first thing that stroke me was the poor paper and print quality. In addition, the illustrations are far, far cry from impressive!!! I like a good print and have a keen eye for quality images, unfortunately this book doesn't offer neither of those! I was expecting stories well illustrated that sparks and inspire the 4.5 year old imagination keen to learn and explore. But instead, I think a 8 year old may find it difficult to get attracted by this Bible for Children...
To be entirely truth, we haven't read any of the stories yet as the book arrived this afternoon. So can't comment on the accuracy of the script, but I truly hope it will serve its purpose - other then that I strongly suggest to explore options in a local bookstore before buying any of these 'so amazingly portrayed' Bibles for Children... Quite disappointing considering hopes of a wide smile and 'hurray' from my daughter for as important print at this - she would normally do that while getting any other richly illustrated children's books with good stories...
