When our kids were young, I bought them several age-appropriate Bibles. No two were the same.

One of the most-used versions we set dove into regularly was The Beginner’s Bible. The kids loved it. Me too! And that was fifteen years ago.

We scoured and studied its pages at night as they slid under the covers and prepared for a good night’s sleep. We read it during the day sometimes as well. And the part I loved most is when I’d catch glimpse of one of the kids carting it around the house–usually Beka– then plopping on the sofa to flip through the pages and study the scenes.

Why did we love The Beginner’s Bible?

  1. Its hard back holds up to eager hands.
    The hard cover simply worked best for our crew of little fingers, kids eager to flip through pages and carry around their Bible. It’s solid for young hands.
  2. The Beginner’s Bible contains attractive pages bursting with color. 
    Sure, black and white paints a picture, but there’s something about color that lights up the page…and draws a reader. Even if your kids don’t yet read, they’ll capture insight into the Bible story simply by studying the picture.
  3. Both Old and New Testament stories find their way into this Bible.
    From stories about creation and Elisha in the Old Testament to a New Testament filled with Jesus, this children’s Bible covers stories and people threaded throughout time.
  4. It contains references to the Bible passages.
    As a new Christian, I appreciated that The Beginner’s Bible included passage references for each story. This helpful feature allows opportunity to read the portion in an adult Bible before exploring it with the kids. (The children’s stories are not word-for-word translations. They are stories, snippets of that passage.) And sometimes reading the actual verses helps adults better understand the complete picture and prepares them for questions children ask.
  5. The Beginner’s Bible is a great choice for beginning readers. 
    Young readers will call this one their own. Hence, the name “The Beginner’s Bible.” The words prove friendly for youngsters. A dictionary at the back of the Bible helps with unfamiliar ones. And if its reading level proves too high for your reader? Consider it an open opportunity for an adult to read to the child. Call it a win/win.

  1. This has been our go to Bible as well! My son loves it and I love how it puts the biblical stories in an easy to understand language. I especially like that it tries to stay fairly close to other versions like the NIV, ESV, and NASB without stretching the truth! So excited for your giveaway—there definitely will be some blessed winners with this one!
