I think that perhaps the best book that we have ever bought for our children is The Jesus Storybook Bible. It tells the story of scripture in a way that is engaging to kids, all the while showing that Jesus is the point of both the Old and New Testaments. That is why the subtitle of the book is Every Story Whispers His Name. If your kids don’t have this book, you should get it for them this Christmas.
Many of you are no doubt familiar with this book. What some of you may not know is that the book is now available in a deluxe edition. The deluxe edition includes CD’s with audio recordings of the book being read by actor David Suchet (of “Poirot” fame). Here are a couple of samples of his readings:
The Young Hero and the Horrible Giant
A Little Girl and a Poor, Frail Lady
The audio in this deluxe edition is a great value, and I am looking forward to sharing it with our kids. The Amazon price of the whole thing is only $16.49. You’ll want to get this one.
I agree – we bought this a couple of months ago and it is definitely the best Children’s Bible I’ve ever come across. Definitely recommend the deluxe version too.
Ordered. Thanks for the tip.
Reading this right now with my daughter… it is REALLY good.
We have used this book and The Big Picture Story Book Bible with our girls and love them both.
