MY TIDBITS


Cute illustrations, easy to understand Bible stories, and a handle to tote it around everywhere--this is definitely a perfect Bible for kids.

This book is made for carrying around. The plastic handle is pretty stable, the cover will hold up to bumps and sticky fingers, and the flap, with it's magnetic strip, keeps the entire thing tidy inside. The pages, however, are normal book pages and require a little more respect while glimpsing through the Bible stories. In other words, this is great for kids ages 4 and up.

At 180 pages, I was a little worried that this book might be overwhelming for young readers/listeners, but I was wrong. There are 30 Bible stories in these pages and each one draws in. Not only are the more normal tales of Creation, David and Goliath, Moses and Jesus birth, death and resurrection included, but there are a couple 'lesser known' tales such as Deborah or Ruth and Naomi added as well. The stories are kept concise and bring over the main point in a way kids can easily understand. But the writing is fun too, keeping younger listeners in mind. Kids learn the tales, the important meanings, and don't risk losing interest or concentration along the way.

The illustrations are colorful and very age appropriate. The characters are friendly and the animals are so cute, they demand to be cuddled. Still, even the more serious situations hold tone and help young listeners/readers to understand exactly what is going on. The google eyes draw a few giggles at times, keeping kids engaged in every page.

Summed up, this is a lovely Bible for kids, and I'll be picking these up for my own nephews and nieces soon.


I received a complimentary copy of this book through BookLook Bloggers
and found this Bible so wonderful for little readers that I wanted to share my honest thoughts.
