This was my book when I was little. Now Gabriel reads it and LOVES it. He begs to read his Bible. His favorite stories are David and Goliath (he can recite the story word for word) and he gets a kick out of the story of the angel Gabriel appearing to Mary :) Really easy for children to understand, even for my two year old. It has stories that I was a little unfamiliar with!
I was an adult who decided that I wanted to get to know what the Bible was all about. This was my introduction. I wanted the most simple form of the Bible to get an idea of it's contents before I dove into any future reading of the Bible. I can honestly say that I'm grateful that this book came into my life because now it has motivated me to read on. I now have a general idea of who people are and the events that happened with a tiny bit of background. This book is great for children (who it's r ...more

I recently had the pleasure of reviewing The Beginner's Bible App on my iPad. This app is so well done, colorful and full of lessons for the young child just starting out learning the bible. I loved the beautiful illustrations, the easy to read follow along hi-lighted words and the audio. So all the child needs to do is listen and read along. As well as the read along story there is a play section where the child can interact more with the coloring pages that can be colored right on the iPad. Th ...more
My son absolutely loved this Bible as he was growing up! Before he knew how to read he would look through the pictures for hours on end making up his own stories to go along with the pictures! This is a great way to introduce little ones to the Bible! I absolutely recommend this book to all children! The grown ups will enjoy it too! I sure did!!
This Bible wins my top pick for a children's Bible. It makes a great beginning reader that encourages good Bible-reading habits from an early age. One of my favorite features is the "address location" for where each story is found in the full-sized Bible.

This is the third children's Bible that we've read through over the past year. It's a solid compilation that contains many stories other versions omit. I appreciated the inclusiveness of having stories from almost every book of the Bible.
When my children were little, we read several versions of this Bible, over and over again. The illustrations are bright and colorful and engage the young child to read the pictures, and develop early Bible reading skills as well.

"Presented to Andrew Price Beauchamp by Granny, Grandaddy, Daddy & Mama; date: January 1, 1992. That means I was 4.
My five year old daughter and I read this together over a period of several evenings. She enjoyed it and asked lots of questions. Very well done childrens Bible.
Giving it 3 stars is generous. It is a clearer story than the "adult" versions of the Holy Bible. Interesting historical fiction, well illustrated for children.
I have used this with my children to read scriptures with them at night. Easy to understand.

This is on the hardcover shelf.
if christians had based their religion on this, and not the crappy other bible, we would have a lot less problems.
This is a child's early reader bible. It is really cute. Kristen read in this as a first grader learning to read.

Basically my childhood in a nut shell. So many memories are in this book for be. Love it forever.
A great way to introduce children to all of the classic Bible stories. My son loved it!
The stories are just the right length for the bedtime routine with my little guy.
I am in 6th grade and I still enjoy reading it. It is a classic for all.
I like the pictures in this old version better than the new one. :)
Read it all the time when I was a kid.

I write young adult fiction about embracing uncertainty and discovering who you are. To me, life is story and story is life, and figuring out each is a process of exploring paths and seeing where they lead. In my novels, I explore losing what you thought was your path but finding another way, questioning taken-for-granted beliefs, and holding on when you think you can't. I love nature, travel, and ...more
