My Favorite Bible - God's Word Translation


by Rondi DeBoer and Christine Tangvald and Illustrated by Ariel Pang

Read the Back:
Bring the Bible alive!

The most treasured stories of the Bible come alive in My Favorite Bible.

Start your little ones on a life-long love of God's word!

This colorful and dynamic gospel-centered Bible storybook guides children through the foundational truths of Scripture. Each story is fully and vividly illustrated and includes a simple narrative with things children ages 4—8 love: repetition, rhythm, and energy, along with a key biblical theme, a key Bible verse, an activity page, and discussion questions.

Adults and children will cherish time together as they grow closer to God.

My Thoughts:
This is the Bible I've been searching for. It breaks the Bible down into terms that young children can understand and it is beautifully illustrated. I also enjoyed the Family Talk and Family Fun parts at the end of each section of scripture. The Family Talk page introduces a Faith Foundation (such as "God Created All Things for His Glory"). There is also a key verse introduced in this part as well as a few easy discussion questions. The Family Fun page has suggestions for activities that the family can do together to reinforce the theme of the previous passage of scripture. I love the idea of doing something that involves the whole family as well as really solidifying what the children have learned from the Bible. I fully intend to purchase a few more copies of this for friends and family members!
