Museum of the Bible Books Blog Tour

The Bible is the cornerstone of faith traditions around the world; here are 100 best-loved Bible stories presented in a beautiful hardcover edition for children aged 5 to 8. The stories are written in a manner that is appropriate for either a read-to-me audience or early readers, and the collection includes both Old and New Testament stories. The artwork that accompanies the stories is collected from children around the world, highlighting cultures across the globe and reflecting the diversity of visitors to the Museum of the Bible. Additionally, by showcasing the unique perspectives that children bring to their understanding of these stories, this collection will allow young readers to see the Bible as something with which they can personally engage.

My Review

A beautiful Bible storybook geared to children ages 5 to 8, told in a way that they would understand. What makes this book extra special is that children do all of the art, and there are 100 different stories, with the children participating from 50 different countries.
I love that each of the illustrations give the first name of the drawer, and the country they are from, and ages between 8 and 12.
There is a map in the back that both shows and lists the countries that the children come from. Then there is a people and places index to easily find the story that you want to read.
I received this book through Worthy Kids/Ideals Museum of the Bible, and was not required to give a positive review.

The Bible, particularly the Old Testament, is full of stories of strange and unusual happenings—strange because they are unfamiliar and unexpected and hard to understand. Frogs infest a palace. A donkey talks. Rivers turn to blood. These events may seem impossible, but the Bible says they all happened. This book will explore each weird and wacky event by looking at it through the lens of its cultural or theological relevance. And by pairing the story with engaging artwork, this collection will draw in even the reluctant reader.


My Review

What a delightful book to have in your home for a fun look at the bible, geared to 6 to 9 year olds, but my twelve year old had a great time with this read.
We all read things that make us scratch our heads, really not familiar to us, we get to read about some of these things and have delightful illustrations to go along.
There is a table of contents and that give you a quick look, with pictures, of where to turn for the stories you want to read, “Frogs in the Bed and Flies in the Soup” page 8 or “Fingers Floating Free” page 74.
Had a hard time getting the boys to put this one down.

My Review

Such a handy and interesting book to have on hand for you Christian children, facts to wow and fascinate them.

An introduction to the Bible for young children
Children begin hearing Bible stories at a very young age, both in the home and in the church or classroom. But without context, these stories often present as a disjointed collection of individual events. This title will give little ones a big picture of the Bible -- from what it is to how it was written to the message it shares of God's love for us. Such context will help children to better understand the Bible stories they hear and how those stories relate to their own lives. Ages 2 to 5.


My Review

A sturdy little book for young hands that they will be asking you to read to them time and again, perfect for the Christian home and ages 2 to 6, although it is great for toddler hands.
The illustrations are bright and really cute, perfect to draw the little ones eyes. The messages are spot on, and give a quick glimpse into the word of God.
A great introduction to the Bible for little ones!
