As parents we want our children to learn to read and love their Bible. After all this is God's story. The story that we pray they will base their life on. And the Bible is the original good vs. evil story. And good prevails.
The stories in this book are stories from the Bible told with actual Bible text. The International Children's Bible is used. I love the computer-generated illustrations. They are extremely well done. My favorite is the one of Jonah - page 138 - it's awesome.
Just like a regular Bible, the stories are divided by Old and New Testament. Each story than tells the story of either a hero of the Bible (i.e. Noah, Moses, John the Baptist, etc) or a villain (i.e. Joseph's brothers, Haman, the Pharisees, etc). Each chapter also begins with a short explanation about the hero or villain and ends with an explanation of how to either be more like the hero or less like the villain. The verses that the chapter uses are also listed at the start of the chapter.
I really liked how child-friendly the book is. With the playful illustration it reads almost as a graphic-novel rather than a Bible. I like how the Bible truths are discussed at the end of each chapter. I feel this version is an easy way to help a child read the Bible.
