No discs

Unfortunately, this order did not include the discs as pictured. I would not have ordered if I had known they would not be included. They are pictured and I didn’t see a disclaimer that they were not. I would return if I could find that as an option

Readable, teachable.

Lovely pictures and folksy style of prose almost as if one is telling a story aloud. Hey wait! That’s exactly it!

Awesome children’s Bible

I love the way this Bible explains how throughout the entire Bible, God wants us to know we are loved. Jesus is the great rescue plan, and God wants all of us to be saved. The Gospel written in a story format brings me to tears some days when I read it to my children. Beautiful illustrations.

Kids love it

My older child learned a lot from this book!

This book was listed in “very good condition”. When it arrived it is literally missing pages that we

The book itself is well written and illustrated. The one I received had pages torn from the book.

Wonderful Read

Well written, fantastic illustrations following Jesus's narrative. Highly recommend!

Your Family Needs This!

I love every aspect of this Bible. The illustrations by Jago are both charming and intriguing. There are about fifty stories, a good balance. The text itself is exactly what I want my children to hear, theologically. I love this line from the very first chapter. "The Bible isn't mainly about you and what you should be doing. It's about God and what he has done." AMEN. The subtitle is "Every Story Whispers His Name" and indeed, every story does. "No, the Bible isn't a book of rules, or a book of heroes. The Bible is most of all a Story. It's an adventure story about a young Hero who comes from a far country to win back his lost treasure. It's a love story... You see, the best thing about this Story is -- it's true. There are lots of stories in the Bible, but all the stories are telling one Big Story. The Story of how God loves his children and comes to rescue them." She goes on to say that the center of the story is a baby who is like the missing piece to a puzzle that makes all the other pieces fit together, and to reveal the beautiful picture. She stays true to this aim, pointing to Christ with every story, helping children to see the whispers of redemption through it all. If you buy just one Children's Story Bible, I'd commend this one to you.

The Gold Standard for Children's Bibles

Sally Lloyd Jones' version of the the Bible is the one I wish I'd had when my own children were growing up. It has it all, including action, drama, pathos, humor, poetic language AND an awareness of how the Old Testament prefigures the New, leading us to Jesus and his message of hope and redemption. I love it, read it myself for comfort and encouragement, and am truly grateful that I found it in time to read to my grandchildren.

Hard To Get Better Than This

In Sally Lloyd-Jones' unique, kid-friendly style, The Jesus Storybook Bible tells 43 Bible stories from the book of Genesis through Revelation. But this book is more than a mere collection of Bible stories. Each story in some way relates to Jesus and who he is, giving children the big picture of what God is all about. What I Like: Sally Lloyd-Jones has a unique gift for writing for children. Her sense of humor is spinkled throughout - and does not detract from the importance of the Bible's message. I also appreciate the author's clear understanding that parents must help children understand that Bible stories are different from fairy tales. As she says: "You see, the best thing about this story is--it's true. It takes the whole Bible to tell this story. And at the center of the story there is a baby. Every story in the Bible whispers his name. He is like the missing piece in a puzzle--the piece that makes all the other pieces fit together and suddenly you can see a beautiful picture." The illustrations by award-winning artist Jago are also engaging, colorful, and often look beyond the obvious. What I Dislike: Nothing. Overall Rating: Excellent. Age Appeal: 4 - 8.

Amazing

This is the Bible storybook I have always hoped would be written, though I didn't realize it until I read it. I LOVE THIS BOOK! And so do my 8 year old, my 6 year old, my 5 year old, and my 3 year old. Thank you, thank you, thank you for doing this. My favorite line so far: The Bible isn't mainly about you and what you should be doing. It's about God and what he has done. Amen. Our children are capable of hearing this and this book tells it to them in a way they can certainly understand.

The BEST children's Bible

I am a Sunday School teacher, and the father of a beautiful 4 year old girl. We have probably ten children's Bibles around the house, and all of them have something special about them... But this is simply the BEST children's Bible I have ever seen (my little girl loves it too.) Every story is wonderfully told with a heartwarming sense of humor. The illustrations are truly cute (without crossing the line into sugar-coated.) Best of all is that every story (from the Old and New Testaments) refer in some way to the Lord Jesus, and show how the story fits in with Him... whether it be a shadow of His future coming or directly referencing bloodlines, etc. IE that king David was a good shepherd, but later would come a greater shepherd to save the whole world. Just can't rave about this children's Bible enough! I'll be buying one for every child in my Sunday School class... and nieces and nephews... and neighbor children... a few in the car just in case... Jesus IS Lord!!!! <
