The Bible is the cornerstone of faith traditions around the world; here are 100 best-loved Bible stories presented in a beautiful hardcover edition for children aged 5 to 8. The stories are written in a manner that is appropriate for either a read-to-me audience or early readers, and the collection includes both Old and New Testament stories. The artwork that accompanies the stories is collected from children around the world, highlighting cultures across the globe and reflecting the diversity of visitors to the Museum of the Bible. Additionally, by showcasing the unique perspectives that children bring to their understanding of these stories, this collection will allow young readers to see the Bible as something with which they can personally engage.
"Children of the World" is a beautiful Storybook Bible illustrated by Children. What I love about this Bible is that it has the heart of Children in mind. The pictures are colorful, but they are realistic and with stories from the Bible, young children from all ages can read the text and comprehend it. I love that this did not leave out stories that many Children's Bibles often do because of the content.
The country maps, table of contents places of index are great references and tools to teach your child how to navigate the Bible at a young age. This is just a wonderful Story Bible for Children eight and under. I give this Bible 5/5 stars. A favorable review was not required.
