My Favorite Bible: A Review

About The Bible:

The most treasured stories of the Bible come alive in My Favorite Bible.

Start your little ones on a life-long love of God's word!

This colorful and dynamic gospel-centered Bible storybook guides children through the foundational truths of Scripture. Each story is fully and vividly illustrated and includes a simple narrative with things children ages 4—8 love: repetition, rhythm, and energy, along with a key biblical theme, a key Bible verse, an activity page, and discussion questions.

Adults and children will cherish time together as they grow closer to God.

About The Editors:

Now she spends her time homeschooling her three daughters and eagerly awaits the arrival of a fourth daughter from China. She and her husband, Brian, live in Washington with their family.

She lives in Washington with her husband Roald

My Review:

I will be the first to admit I have a slight addiction to children's Bibles. I love reading my girls the Bible Stories that I grew up with, and love the many variations of them that are on the market. That said, I am also very picky about which Children's Bibles. I like ones that not only attract my childrens' attention (with bright colors and not wordy) but that are also theologically sound (that is teaching young children correct theology, not just making the Bible a story). My Favorite Bible is all this and more. Each Bible story is between 8-12 pages and I love the rhyming nature of each one, but most importantly I LOVE what ends each story! Family Talk and Family Fun help your family have a fun yet sincere Bible teaching time. These are perfect for family devotions, and give you a lot of ideas for teaching Biblical truths to your children. Also great for Bible teaching times for home school families as well.

 The translation, God's Word Translation, is one I am unfamiliar with, however, it is very easy to read, and perfect for young readers who are starting out reading the Bible, perfect for transitioning from a picture book Bible to a older child's Bible.

My Favorite Bible is the perfect new-baby gift or birthday gift for the any little one in your life.

I highly recommend My Favorite Bible and give it a huge thumbs up.

BUY IT: You can purchase My Favorite Bible at your favorite bookseller, from Revell, a division of Baker Publishing Group
