The multiple award-winning Jesus Storybook Bible tells the Story beneath all the stories in the Bible. It takes the whole Bible to tell this Story. And at the center of the Story, there is a baby, the Child upon whom everything would depend. From Noah to Moses to King David, every story whispers his name. Jesus is like the missing piece in a puzzle-the piece that makes all the other pieces fit together. Beautifully written and illustrated, The Jesus Story Book Bible invites children to discover for themselves that Jesus is at the center of God's great story of salvation-and at the center of their story too.

This is a great Bible for children. The stories are put into words that little ones can understand and just like the book claims, every story whispers Jesus' name. At the end of every story, the author ties in how Jesus relates to that particular story. I really enjoy that and that makes it really easy for me to discuss Jesus with my children. The illustrations are very colorful and the titles are even written in words that children can understand.

The only thing I do not really care for about this book is how the author changes the words of the Bible story. It is neat to have the story in language that children can understand, but sometimes it almost feels silly. I wish there was a better way to help children learn the ACTUAL words of the Bible, while still making it easy for them to understand.

I would highly recommend this book. My boys and I read a story from it every night and really enjoy it. My boys are usually begging me to read "at least one more".
