The Children's Illustrated Bible
About this deal
The one we had in the 80s had a red cover with The Picture Bible in embossed gold, and no artwork on the cover.
A graduate in modern foreign languages, Janice Emmerson is the bestselling author of The Complete Illustrated Children’s Bible, The Jesus Bible for Kids, and The Illustrated Bible for Little Ones. My top 3 essential Catholic kids' books for kids with short attention spans grades K-6: the Lego Catechism of the 7 Sacraments, THIS children's Bible, and Meg Hunter-Kilmer's Saints Around the World. Hastings consulted with a cadre of educators, scholars, and religious advisors to retain the original feel and poetry of the Bible, while appealing to contemporary young readers with clear, lively language.
Even if you are not religious, your kids will benefit deeply from hearing and reading the wonderful tales of the Judeo-Christian tradition, and step up their cultural literacy significantly. This is the story of Jesus - his birth, his life, his death and his resurrection - and all the wonderful stories he told, the miracles he performed, and the good news that he brought for each and every one of us. This larger edition of the Children's Illustrated Bible has large pictures plus print that is big enough to be very easily read. From the peak of Mount Sinai to the shores of the Sea of Galilee - Old and New Testament stories are brought to life with photographs and maps to put the stories in context. I love this so much because it's not crowded visually, and very succinct so as to keep a child's attention.
The cover may have some limited signs of wear but the pages are clean, intact and the spine remains undamaged. An uplifting and wonderful collection, this title is the perfect first introduction to the Bible for young children. Perfect for sharing with your child or grandchild or for them to read and discover the Bible on their own. Printed in large print with simple sentences, fast-moving stories and lively, detailed illustrations. My child loves to read this during Mass, and the text is not intimidating so he can read it himself and not get frustrated.With nearly 300 full-page colour illustrations helping to tell the stories from the Old and New Testaments, this Bible is sure to win every child’s heart. In this beautifully illustrated Bible, young children can learn about the most wonderful story of all for themselves, from the marvel of creation to the spreading of the good news.
