Product Description:

This book presents the timeless stories of the Bible in a way that will intrigue young children. With colorful illustrations, the parables come alive. Starting in the Old Testament with Creation and ending in the New Testament with John's vision of heaven in Revelation, this story Bible covers all the major stories of the Bible. Each message is short and moves in a succinct manner that will hold the attention of children. The information is accurately drawn from Scripture and makes use of the same wording. Each chapter includes the biblical reference, list of key words, and instructions for the readers to ask, do and pray about things pertaining to the story. For instance, in the story of Ester, the instructions tell readers to ask themselves what bad things Haman wanted to do, plan and prepare a unique meal for their families, and pray to thank God for making Esther brave. A glossary with definitions of key words is included, making it a great tool for younger children to learn to read and build their vocabularies. The Story Bible would be ideal for children to read on their own, help them to learn to read, or used to teach biblical lessons after dinner or during bedtime. 130 stories. 480 pgs, hardcover. - John

Publisher Description:

Never before in our nearly 150 years of publishing have we produced a Bible for children as rich and feature filled as The Story Bible. This treasure will be a great help to pastors, teachers, parents and grandparents as they, like the faithful mother and grandmother of St. Timothy, lead the little ones to understand the Sacred Scriptures.

Throughout this Bible, high quality realistic art from our Growing in Christ series is used to fully engage the reader, rather than using cartoon artwork that might suggest to children that the Bible stories are pretend rather than real.

Our intent was to keep the focus on Christ by presenting stories with Old Testament prophecies about Christ so we could present one story for all of Scripture - God's gift of the Savior. Instead of paraphrasing each story, they were drawn directly from the Bible while adjusting them for student readability.

Many stories from the latter part of the Old Testament have been included so that children may begin to build an understanding of the sequence of biblical history. There is also a user's guide included to explain how to use this Bible with children at different stages of development and reading levels.

Other unique features included in this Bible are discussion questions, learning activities, and prayers. These bring each story to life, making a meaningful and lasting impression on children from ages 3 to 8.

Whether for at-home use, in preschools, or as part of a congregation-wide children's ministry, this Bible will make a lasting impact.

Category Description for Christian Studies (Gr. K-2):

Weekly studies in the Christian Studies Enrichment Guide are based on The Story Bible and provide a way to go systematically through the Bible at a young age. Kindergarten study is Creation to the death of Moses (with a break to observe the birth of Christ at Christmas and the Resurrection during Easter.) First Grade continues the study with Joshua through the end of the Old Testament. Second grade covers the New Testament. The Enrichment Guide provides a short list of vocabulary words (with definitions) plus discussion questions (with answers) for each story. Go over the vocabulary words before reading each story and follow up with talking through the questions. There is one study per week for grades K-2 in this guide. 127 pgs, pb. ~ Janice

This is by far the best story bible I have found since the one I received as a child. It uses language and stories that are accurate to the KJV such that when verses are read or quoted there is a seamless transition and children become comfortable with the text. At the same time the illustrations are engaging and allow kids to emotionally explore the stories for themselves.

I like that this bible is approachable for the elementary age with being infantilized.

because it goes with the Memoria press book. And also, the video presentation was a big help.
