One of my best childhood reading experiences! I still remember
being transported to a different world with the words and the illustrations in that shiny, new, yellow book from the barrel..ah the nostalgia, one of my aunt's best gifts ever.

Start brainwashing them when they are young, right?

This book is pretty much where I got all my biblical knowledge from. I still know a lot more than most of my school mates.

My mother used this book to teach me how to read and I'm glad she did. While some of my playmates were reading stories about the Little Mermaid, Cinderella, Peter Pan, and other fairy tales, I was reading stories about Abraham, Moses, Noah, Jonah and other bible characters who faithfully served the only true God.


This book deserves a perfect rating. It can help parents in inculcating moral values in the hearts of their children.

awww!!! childhood memories. I grew up with this book.I just stumble on it now online and decided to buy for future use ( for my children yet unborn )isn't that funny ?

One of my favourite childhood books! It holds so many memories. My parents used to read it to me before I went to bed, and often I'd fall asleep listening to the accompanying tapes.

"What I appreciated most about this book when I first read it as a child was that it put the entire Bible in chronological order, including events in the lifetime of Jesus. It made the Bible--an admittedly difficult book for a child to read, let alone understand--more understandable."

Mind pollution for children used to start applying twisted logic of Jehovah's Witnesses to their mind and implant a fear of displeasing the Watchtower organization.

Do not let children read this rubbish.

Leí este libro de niño, y me gustó tanto que lo leía una y otra vez. Y hasta empecé a leer la biblia (por partes) gracias a este libro, porque tenía la impresión que la biblia era como este libro pero con esteroides, o sea más gordo, con las historias con más detalles.
Las impresiones que me dejó:
- En el jardín del Edén los leones son vegetarianos.
- A dios no le gustaba que Caín fuera agricultor y vegetariano, por eso le hacia desplantes, y prefería las ofrendas de corderos degollados de Abel, qu

It was a very enjoyable reading, the old and new testament core tales being narrated in a easy to understand language. I read this book over and over when I was a kid.

Only when I grew up I realized some chapters are biased and there is a lot more the stories here and many happenings during and between many of this that are taken out in order to make the message clear. It did a good job. I probably know most of Bible tales (specially old testament) because of it.

I had the long print version. The

This is a review for the 1978 version.

Obey or die! Is that the message you want your child to have? Due to the graphic photos in this book, I don't recommend it for children. When I was growing up, I was permitted only to read literature distributed this publisher and was not allowed to read any other literature unless it was for a public school assignment. When this book came out, I can remember how the younger members were overjoyed to finally have a publication for kids. I can remember how s

I grew up reading this book every day when I was little. I do realize that it was not wtiten by "God"...as is credited on goodreads. The artwork is pretty amazing. A funny story...when asked by an elder, "Who died in the great flood?" I replied, "the elephants" because of a drawing depicting a wooly mammoth outside the ark in the rain. That was some extreme artistic license on the part of the illustrator I would say.

One of my favorite books as a child and even now I reread it occasionally. I remember receiving it at the District Convention of Jehovah's Witnesses in Memphis, TN.

This was one of my favorite books as a child. It's pictures excited me and I found the stories very colorful. Although I don't believe in a god I think this book is really educational and basic for young ones and would recommend it.

This book is specifically designed to educate young people about good morals and teach them how to apply the basic teachings of the Holy Scriptures. The stories were based on the Bible. Full colored pictures and well-written contents.

I remember my mom reading this to me when I was little.A wonderful book, full with a collection of short biblical stories. Each story is summarized and told, using the main points of the topic. An easy read for all ages!

The gratuitous violence and sex scenes in this book are must for every 4 year old - they have fuelled my nightmares and fantasies for quarter of a century - not as good as the Armageddon book!

Please don't buy this garbage for your children. It is the twisted interpretation of bible stories according the the Jehovah's Witness cult.

Great book. Very detailed. Also very insightful. I wish people would stop with the negativity. Regardless of how anyone feels about JW's, at least a kid is reading something! How many kids you know read nowadays? I commend the JW's on this publication and all their publications. I don't think they're a cult. I don't think this is too violent for a child, hell, if you let em watch rated R films and play M for mature games what are you complaining about? Anyway, good read if I could have children ...more

El copilado de historias estuvo interesnate. Sirvio para darme una idea de la cronologia de la Biblia. Como es para chicos tiene imagenes y un vocabulario sencillo. Por lo visto debe leerse con un adulto al lado q te vaya guiando y haciendote leer los pasajes de la Biblia, porque sino te ves tentado a pasarlos sin mas y te quedas sin muchas cosas que entender.
Algo que no me gusto y tiró muy para abajo mi puntaje es la falta de definicion del Bien y el Mal. Ya desde la primera historia te van dic
