My Review:

This is a beautiful Bible for children. It contains 21 Old Testament stories, along with 23 New Testament stories, each with absolutely amazing illustrations. Each story is approximently six pages, so a perfect length to keep the attention of your preschool and early elementary aged child. There is a presentation page and ribbon book marker as added features. The CD's contain each story from the book in a fun and exciting manner. My three year old always wants to listen to them in the car!! My husband and I always take turns reading from Bible stories every evening, and since receiving The Jesus Storybook Bible, it is the only children's Bible we can read from (we have a couple different Bible Story Books).

One added bonus is that we can go to and watch videos of the different Bible stories. Each week there is a different story posted, as well as a list of other.

This is definitely one children's Bible we will be using in our home for many years to come, and I highly recommend this as a baby gift, or birthday gift for that special little person in your life.
