Illustrations on the same page. Easy for my kids to read and understand!

Wonderfully vivid yet often whimsical illustrations offset the poweful and profound message. Chapters and verses around which each story is written allows for easy adult reference for family study. Each of my children has a copy.

I bought this for my 4 yr old daughter and she loves it! I was looking for something that wasn't too wordy but still got the stories across. Everything else I had looked at was lengthy. This is definitely written perfectly for small children who need shorter stories made for their short attention spans. I definitely recommend this!

I can't say enough about this book. I love that my 6 year old WANTS to read it over and over. These are the types of books that really teach values. My kids know the Bible stories very well because of this book. I also use it in my sunday school class with 4 year olds. They LOVE the pictures and the stories are easy to understand. Then we'd act out each story. I am so happy I found this. I LOVE this book. A great introduction to the Bible!!

This has been my son's favorite book since he's been able to say a few words - which has been over a year! Before nap time EVERY day he asks for 'Bible Stories.' I know he's 'stalling,' but I can't resist reading them to him - and he LOVES this book and the pictures. Perfect amount of words, perfect amount of page turning, beautifully illustrated...we love it!

My now 4 year old still loves to have me read this Bible to her nightly. She loves the stories - they are simple and easy to remember. The artwork goes great with the stories as well! We finish the Bible one night and start it over the next. A must for any toddler!!!!

When I was little we used the same bible in my pre-k class! I know I at least,then as a four year old, understood it and learned a TON! So happy when my teacher took it off the shelf, so I could learn more! Perfect for anybody little!

We purchased this after reading another Bible that was really disappointing. We just wanted a Bible with complete stories and illustrations that helped tell the stories. We were not looking for a Bible with devotional type questions. We are really impressed with this beginners Bible. Our almost 4 year old boy loves it and our toddler enjoys looking at the pictures.

It is very easy to read and understand for the preschool children. My children had this book when they were little. The illustrations are great and we use it with their bible lessons from church.

This book has helped me to begin to tell the story of Jesus. My daughter is currently only 21 months but we have been reading to her for some time and she now understands who Jesus is. This book is what we read as the last thing before she goes to bed. I had been looking for some time to find a way to begin sharing this great story and now I have found it.

We really enjoyed reading this with our twin almost-five year old boys. We read four chapters each night until we had gone through the entire book. The illustrations were perfect for that age and the content was wisely edited to avoid some of the more unpleasant parts of the Bible that might not yet be age-appropriate. The kids really liked learning about all of the different people and identifying which ones they knew on the cover. And I liked that they included the chapter and verse. We will read again and again, I'm sure.

After looking at many Beginner Bibles for gifts, this one is the best by far. The stories can be read in chapter form to little ones and being a short read , they hold the young ones attention. The pictures are wonderful.....very pleasant, bright colors and a joy to share. After our initial purchase, we purchased two more for our other Grandchildren. They are being read cover to cover. Enjoy !!!

My kids grew up with and loved this Bible filled with typically chosen Bible stories for children. I like that it has more stories in it than many children’s Bibles. Where many a children’s Bible might have 35-50 stories, this Bible has more than 90, making it more comprehensive than most. My kids and I have all enjoyed the illustrations, too. Some children’s Bibles’ drawings are a little strange, but the cartoon characters that inhabit the pages of the Beginner’s Bible are cute and fun for kids to look at while the story is being read to them. Every page has a large colorful picture, often more than half filling it. Most importantly, I’ve never found a theological issue in this Bible, which I couldn’t say for all the children’s Bibles I’ve reviewed. I imagine it must be challenging to paraphrase Scripture in such a way that a child can understand and be engaged without making any mistakes in the translation. The authors were able to pull it off with this one. There’s a good reason that more than 25 million copies have been sold of this Bible storybook. It’s just solid, fun, and great for kids. It would truly be a beloved Christmas present for any young child.

This hardback book is a new revised modern version of the already favorite Beginner's Bible. It is not actually a Bible but instead more of a story book Bible with bright illustrations that portray the stories it includes. The illustrations themselves although bright and colorful, seem a little artificial. I guess what I am not quite so fond of is that they all have these big bulging eyes. Otherwise, they are not bad. At the beginning of the chapter, beneath the title, there is a Scripture reference to advise where the story is found in the Bible itself. It includes a variety of stories from the Old and New Testaments such as: Creation, Moses, Joshua, David, several of the Prophets, the Birth of Jesus, His Miracles, and other timeless classic Bible tales. This Beginner Bible would likely be great for young children who may not understand the Bible itself yet,or those beginner readers who enjoy the Bible stories but struggle to read the extra words in the actual Bible. It does however, only covers select parts of the Bible, and the stories are simplified for younger children. At times the stories only cover about three pages, with an illustration on every page also. I received a free copy of this book from Fly By Promotions to review. All opinions are my own, and I was not required to review it positively.

This is a wonderful little picture Bible. The pages are colorful and the words are larger print and easy to read. The stories are short and easy to understand with the perfect illustrations to follow the story. This hard cover is going to be a delight to read to my youngest grandchildren and a great way to spend time with my older readers, reading to me. I see this as a favorite for a good long time.

The Beginner’s Bible was my very first Bible! I still remember sitting in my room on my bed as a little girl, reading the stories and looking at the pictures. I was so excited to see an updated version [not that there’s anything wrong with the old one!] to give to my son as his first Bible! I love the stories chosen for this book, from Adam and Eve to Jesus’ life, this Bible will be a favorite of children and parents alike!

There are many bible story books that use the words, "beginner" and "bible" in their titles, - but this childrens' bible produced by Zondervan, known as the The Beginner’s Bible® is the proto-type of bibles made for children. Having read many other bible story books, this is the first time I have read the Beginner's Bible. This is a reprint and revised edition of the original that was first published in 1989. From the start I was impressed by this bible. The bible stories contained are true to the bible- complete with bible references, but simplified for young children. The illustrations are simple and colorful. The faces of the illustrated characters and figures are expressive with bold, piercing, wide eyes. The bold lines and contrasting colors will draw in children of all years. From the first story, my toddler was engaged, and listened to the story. Each page features a bold drawing with a few lines of text. The format is not too overwhelming, and each story is quick to read. This bible is thorough and complete. Unlike many bible story books that seem to include only a few bible stories, with 511 pages, this bible contains a thorough selection of all the most important and well known stories and selections from the bible. This choice is a good solid bible to build a foundation for young children. As a blogger for booklook I received a copy of this bible published by Zonderkidz for the purpose of writing this review.

My daughter has not arrived yet, she is due in September. My husband and I both remember reading this book in our religious classes as children. It does a great job to tell a child the bible stories without the long wording of a BIBLE.
