My Review:

As a family who loves Jesus, we have read a number of  Children's Bibles over the last several years, with several favorites on our list. The ones we have read vary from suitablity for infants and toddlers to early school age. Recently, we had the opportunity to review The Candle Classic Bible and we have loved this new addition to our Children's Bible library. 

The Candle Classic Bible is very nicely organized by character, for example you will find The Story of Moses, The Story of Noah and so forth. Then within those stories the Bible is broken down into very short daily readings. It was the perfect reading level for my almost seven year old, and she only needed prompting a few times to help her out. The illustrations are very vivid, and accompany the stories nicely. Since it is an adaptation to scripture, I loved that each daily reading has the scripture reference so that we can, as a family, dig deeper as we study God's Word. 

If you are looking for a lovely gift idea for birthdays, holidays, baptism, or even First Communion, this would fit the bill to be sure.

I highly recommend this Bible and give it a huge thumbs up!
