Ages: 4 & up This deluxe text includes 59 favorite children’s Bible stories. Each story is written at an elementary level, yet stays true to God’s Word. There are 36 stories from the Old Testament and 23 from the New Testament, followed by discussion questions along with delightful art lessons at the end of each story. (Lessons vary in length and level of difficulty, making them easily adaptable for multi-age level groups from preschool to middle grades.) Art & the Bible for Children is wonderfully illustrated by homeschoolers! This hardbound text is in full color with glossy pages, bringing out the quality of the colorful artwork.

Art & the Bible for Children - By: Barry Stebbing

What I think: It is okay for bible lesson plans but not art lesson plans. This hardcover book with 275 page provides a very brief art activity for each subject/story. There is no “how to” art instruction and there is a lack of imagination and creativity overall. Nice book but not what I was looking for based on the title of this book.

Hardcover, 112 pages

Various subjects in this book include a devotional prayer and bible verse along with space to journal and something to color. 

Not fond of the front and back covers which are made of cardboard reminiscent of a composition notebook. The inside pages are a nice quality for writing and coloring. The size (basically 6 x 8) makes it convenient, not too big and not too small. Not my cup of tea, but I recommend it for artsy people of the Christian faith.

Zondervan (November 1, 2016)

NIV Bible with coloring pages in it. for ages 8 and up.

The images are typical of the commonly found adult coloring books. Having coloring pages in the Bible adds a personal touch to your Bible. It also makes a nice gift Bible with a some colored pencils or gel pens. Coloring in this book is user friendly since the binding lays flat and the hard cover gives support. The illustrations are printed on thicker paper than the rest of the book.

29418632

Paperback, 262 pages, published March 24, 2016

The Bible needs no introduction. Or does it? The best-selling book of all time has had a remarkable influence on humanity, and yet, people throughout the centuries have struggled to grasp the essence of its meaning.

The Bible, first and foremost, is a book of relationship. This ancient text–relevant to every era–provides a powerful connecting point for a dynamic relationship with the God who created us.

But there’s more to the story than first meets the eye. Grasping the heart of the Bible requires at least a basic understanding of its origins and inspirational nature.

Through its easy-flowing style, The TouchPoint not only introduces the Christian Scriptures but also draws more seasoned believers into a deeper understanding of God and His ways.

God’s Story in 66 Verses.

Understand the Entire Bible by Focusing on Just One Verse in Each Book.

Book Description

Treasure God’s Word in sixty-six easy verses.

The Bible can seem like a big, intimidating book-mysterious, tedious, and often hard to understand. Written over a span of fifteen hundred years, two millennia ago, God’s Word sometimes feels like a mishmash of stories and literary styles. What can be done to make it more accessible to twenty-first-century readers?

Stan Guthrie’s answer: begin by zooming in on one key verse for each of the Bible’s sixty-six books. Seeking to bring clarity and simplicity to the study of God’s Word, Guthrie has written a concise, easy-to-digest collection of wisdom anchored in one verse for each book, from Genesis to Revelation-a verse that summarizes or lays the foundation for that book, placing it in context with the rest of the Scriptures.

Read this book, and you’ll feel as if you’ve read the entire Bible-but you’ll also yearn to continue mining its depths and exploring its richness on your own.

ENJOYED reading this book! A 5 star book! It would be interesting and helpful not only for a new Christian but also for someone who’s more bible familiar.
There is a chapter (3-4 pages in length) for each book of the bible and the author sums up each section of God’s story (each book) using scripture itself. Book one to book sixty-six, this overview definitely captures the “big” picture. This book was inspired, in part, by the author’s fifth-grade Sunday school students. Nicely done!

Book Description

Children love the soothing sound of rhyme! And now they can enjoy ten classic Bible stories retold in delightful read-aloud rhyme in The Rhyme Bible Storybook for Toddlers. From the story of creation (“In the beginning God made the light. The light was for day. The dark was for night.”) to the resurrection of Jesus (“All his friends were happy then. Jesus was alive again!”), this is the perfect choice for parents who want to introduce their toddlers to the Word of God. Newly updated illustrations and classic stories told in vivid verse make this padded cover board book a sure favorite that will entertain young ones and teach them biblical lessons that last a lifetime.

The Rhyme Bible Storybook for Toddlers is a cute little board book from ZonderKidz. The ten stories are 3 or 4 pages long for a total of 40 pages. Writing is in simple, toddler acceptable rhyming. Boat and float are overused end rhymes in one story if I want to be really critical and mention that. Our favorite story in the book is “A Tasty Lunch” about Jesus feeding loaves and fishes!

I love Laurence Cleyet-Merle’s illustrations. The board book’s pages are filled with attention-keeping pictures from this talented European illustrator. I like the realistic depiction of the ark and also the inclusion of ordinary animals (cat, dog, chicken) instead of only exotic animals (tiger, lion, elephant) that are typically shown in kids books. 

I’d recommended this book for keeping and/or gifting this Easter.
