Review: The Beginning Reader's Bible

The mailman delivered a BIG Bible to my house today! The Beginning Reader's Bible is terrific! It is HUGE (which equals interesting to my kids), it has amazing illustrations, and it is FULL of ACTUAL Bible verses. I have said many times that I wish kids Bibles would use real verses. Well this one is made entirely of verses in the International Children's Bible version.

Apple grabbed this right up and flipped to her favorite Bible passages- the story of Joseph and his brothers. She sat down and read the whole version (shortened) to me. She liked that she could read it herself, the pictures, the suggested prayer, and she loved the red ribbon to help her keep her place!

There is a terrific resource section in the back with things like songs, memory verses, a reading checklist, and the Ten Commandments. With over 180 pages, every child will find something they like! Since I mentioned pages, that is the one flaw that I see (actually a friend pointed it out!). There is a table of contents with page numbers, but the book itself does not have the pages numbered! Clearly an oversight. The illustrations make up for that one small mistake though! Younger children could benefit just from examining all the details of the stories drawn to life.

So if you are looking for a great BIG children's bible for your child, check this one out! It will last a long time from just looking at the pictures, to having the story read to them, to reading the stories themselves.
