      I was looking for a Bible story book that would appeal to and also be Gospel-centered for diverse ages— children and parents alike. I chose this one! On one page of each two-page spread, unique, vibrant, stylized (modern art-esque) illustrations share the page with Let’s Talk about It questions to gauge comprehension and also connect each story with the Gospel. On the opposite page is an in-depth retelling of the Bible selection, designed to be read aloud. One might argue that there’s not enough to grab the child’s attention for the length of the retelling. However, the tone is conversational and easily understandable; the retelling is engaging without compromising the Gospel message. And I would argue, the Gospel draws people to itself. These 156 retellings highlight key events from the Old and New Testament. Each one ends with a focus on the Gospel and how that particular story points to Jesus. Well worth it for young and old, new and veteran Christians. This story Bible can be used as a companion to the devotionals by the same author: Long Story Short (#062381) and Old Story New (#062382). 8.5” x 9”, 328 pp, hc. ~ Ruth

       Introduce your children to Bible stories that are written in age-appropriate language with bright and inviting illustrations. Over 100 stories, presented chronologically, begin with creation and conclude with a boy named Timothy. Every page is covered with color and artwork, so there is always something for children to see. The stories are short and told in a way that makes sense to young children. Print is a little larger and spacing is wider, especially nice if you have a child that can do some of the reading with you.

      The front of the Bible offers suggestions for ways to use this Bible and the table of contents lists the stories and where they can be found in your adult Bible. There are no references found with the stories, but within and at the end of each story are questions. These are simple questions to help children think about an aspect of the story or how it might apply to them or something they can pray about – usually no more than one or two at a time.

      The back of the Bible lists the stories topically along with page numbers; this allows you to read them in groupings rather than chronologically. The book is over 400 pages of beautiful Bible stories and the hardcover will help it stand up to years of family reading. ~ Donna

    An inviting, colorful book of Bible stories introducing children to the "spectacular" of the Bible. While Bible stories are amazing in and of themselves, the illustrations in this book capture the "wow" aspect. The text flows with a unique rhythm, and words and formatting are used to great effect to help the reader emphasize and express wonder. Throughout the text, there are little breaks for "Family Talk" and "Family Fun" pages. Family Talk focuses on key verses, helping children to understand specific concepts. Family Fun pages provide options for hands-on activities that the family can enjoy together while studying these Bible stories. This book is sure to be a favorite! 377 pgs, hc. – Zach

    Formerly titled Victor Journey Through the Bible, this is a wonderful reference to accompany your own Bible reading or family Bible studies. It covers selected (major) Bible events chronologically, providing helpful historical and cultural information about traditions, clothing, everyday objects, places, and more. For example, the Tower of Babel entry discusses its location, possible excavation sites, what the name "Babel" means in Akkadian, information about ziggurats (the most probable form of construction), and the birth of nations after the flood. Very interesting, informative and colorful, this profusely illustrated volume abounds with photographs and artistic renderings, besides maps, charts, lists, and diagrams. Although the title has changed slightly from "Victor" to "DC Cook," the interior content has not been changed. A welcome addition to your library.

    Looking for a more unique story Bible that the whole family will grow from? Check out Shine On, which emphasizes the theme of light throughout the Bible. More like a retelling, stories maintain the original biblical style and include a range of biblical material (law, poetry, stories, etc.) distributed fairly evenly between the Old and New Testaments. I particularly like that full chapters of poetry (such as from Psalms or Isaiah) are included. This collection relates biblical material not often included in story Bibles (the “Faith” chapter, Hebrews 11, for example). These stories are designed for the whole family to enjoy together. For each story, reinforcement activities are provided through Explore, Connect and Wonder (wonder why; wonder how it would feel, etc.) sections (1 per story). Stories are told on a 2-page spread: full-color illustration filling most of one page and the read-aloud on the other. In addition, photographs and illustrations are added in the margins when helpful to the story. Another unique characteristic is the inclusion of a wide variety of illustrators (listed in the back), so styles range from rather cartoon like to more stylized and abstract. Includes a presentation page. 8” x 10”,320 pp, hc. ~ Ruth

    Capturing all the major Old and New Testament stories (over 200), this Bible story book is designed for older elementary children who are ready to read on their own but still have a great appreciation for informative illustrations. Stories are presented chronologically with scripture references. The colorful illustrations are beautiful, frankly, with realistic detail. Each page is typically one story but sometimes related stories are presented across two-page spreads. Numerous sidebar articles provide maps as well as background, archaeological, or just plain interesting “tidbits.” For example, on the two pages that tell the Samson story, each page has one story (Strong enough to kill a lion based on Judges 13-14 and Samson falls in love based on Judges 16). These are carefully told to reflect the truth of the story without being unnecessarily graphic. There is a lovely illustration covering about one-fourth of the two pages that shows Samson with the lion. There are also three side-bar articles - lions (in Canaan), honey bees (their value to Israelites), and what being a Nazirite meant.

    The book starts with a brief introduction to the Bible and ends with ten pages of Bible references (Daily Life in OT/NT, Plants/Animals, The Holy Land and Other Bible Lands) plus four pages of quizzes (Who’s Who in the Bible? and Test your Knowledge).

    Used by New Leaf Press as the spine for their Elementary Bible and English Grammar course, this is a well-done book that would be a lovely addition to any homeschool. 256 pgs, hb. ~ Janice

      A family devotional storybook by Catherine DeVries, author of the Beginner’s Bible (#002165). Each devotional includes a Bible story, a modern story (involving one of 7 nuclear families introduced at the book’s beginning) and a family devotional time. The Bible stories are based on the NIV Bible and are illustrated with full-color drawings. Sometimes the story is read in traditional format; sometimes it is summarized in four-step picture/text sections. Then the Bible story main points are further elaborated on by the illustrated modern story. These story formats vary: either using traditional story format with illustrations, a cartoon layout, or a pictograph story in which the children “read” key individual’s names and nouns. Then the devotional moves to Family Talk Time. This section includes several questions, a “What We Learned About God” summary statement, and a “Let’s Pray” section. In addition, a memory verse is provided. Could be used as a once-per-week or periodic devotional. Children will also enjoy just reading the individual components. 8.25” x 10.25”, 222 pp, hc. ~ Ruth

    This book is a visual treat for visual learners (like myself). I am a huge fan of the Rose Publishing pamphlets due to the wide variety of visually-pleasing Bible charts, maps, and time lines they offer. As a result, I was thrilled when this amazing book wound up on my desk. I had to force myself to stop looking through the pages so I could write this description! This book has 188 pages of spectacular full-color charts, maps, and time lines – many of which you can buy as individual pamphlets, but some that are not available individually.

    The content of this book can be broken up into six different categories. The first category is a section dedicated to general Bible charts. In this section there are charts that present the books of the Bible, an overview of the Old and New Testament, insight on how we got the Bible, lists of 100 well-known people and prayers, and a Christian history time line (which is really good!). Next you move into the Old Testament Charts, which provides you with an outline of creation, 100 well-known events, family trees, names of God, insight to the Ten Commandments, and wonderful charts that bring clarity to Judges, Kings, Prophets, the prophesies of Daniel, and important archaeological finds that support the Old Testament. The third section of this book gives New Testament charts. This section includes charts on the genealogy of Jesus; 100 prophesies fulfilled by Jesus; events, miracles, parables, and teachings of Jesus; information on the twelve disciples; 100 well-known events from Acts to Revelation; archaeological finds that support the New Testament; and other charts that cover well-known portions of scripture such as the Armor of God and Fruit of the Spirit. The next section contains twenty beautiful and well-labeled maps that highlight different features of the Middle East and The Holy Land, as well as showing where Jesus walked and the locations of Paul's missionary journeys. The fifth section includes colorful illustrations and diagrams of places described in the Bible, such as Noah's Ark, The Tabernacle, The Ark of the Covenant, Solomon's Temple, Herod's Temple, and a detailed diagram of Palm Sunday to Easter. Lastly, the final section provides information on Christianity, Cults, and Religions, denominations comparison, the Trinity, and a comparison of Islam and Christianity.

    This book is hardcover and has a spine, but it has a hidden spiral binding that allows you easily reproduce the pages for your classroom. This resource may seem a little pricey; however, if you bought all of these charts separately in pamphlet form, you would pay much more. Plus, you will be hard pressed to find another resource that so clearly presents the truths of the Bible in such an amazing visual format! – elise

    When I taught science and Bible in a Christian school, people would often tell me that seemed an odd combination of classes to teach. I think science and Bible together makes complete sense, and this book of devotions for children makes the connection between the information in the Bible and science in the world around us. There are 100 two-page devotions, each including a Bible verse, devotion, a 'Be Amazed' section, and a prayer closing. Read them as a family devotion or as a quick supplement to your science curriculum. Packed with scripture, these devotions will tie the Biblical basis for the things we experience in science. Every page includes photos, illustrations, and animations as children learn about the earth and space, weather, animals, and much more. 207 pgs, hc. ~ Donna

    …A Look at Languages from A to Z. Colorful illustrations introduce children to exotic locations around the world.

    Thirteen-year-old Amon enjoys playing with his friends, but he is eager to join his father in the temple court with the other men. Amon sacrifices his childhood—and grows up fast—when he sets out to defend his father, who has been falsely accused of a crime. Along the way, Amon witnesses the Biblical events of the Easter Story. He sees the Palm Sunday crowds, hears Jesus address the angry mob, is present during Judas' betrayal, and witnesses Jesus' death and resurrection. A devotional appears after each of the twenty-eight chapters, consisting of a Bible verse and questions for discussion or reflection. Occasional black-and-white illustrations.

    It happens to me once in awhile. I start skimming through a curriculum product and then realize I've slowed down and am reading it thoroughly. This is one of those products. I might be inclined to call it a "practically perfect" introduction to worldview. Designed as a four-lesson unit study and targeting a middle school audience, it provides instructional information, illustrative hands-on activities, and well-developed questions and talking points for family discussions. The lessons move from defining worldview, to finding the commonalities between worldviews, to identifying four worldview "families" (polytheism, monotheism, pantheism, and naturalism) and placing the world's religions in these families, and finally to evaluating the impact of worldview on history. The student is led into discovery: learning to think and evaluate for himself. And, perhaps most important for this age group, they are given tools by which they can continue the evaluation process.

    The Guide is written directly to the student with the parent serving more or less as an administrator. This is an effective presentation methodology because many parents are unfamiliar with these topics and uncertain how to present them. Here, they can become co-learners. Both the instructional segments and the hands-on activities (designed to illustrate and lead the student into understanding) are well-laid out, thoroughly explained and easy to follow. The harder-to-find supplies are provided with the remainder being household/office items. Lessons include definitions, instruction, hands-on activities, processing explanations, review and Table Talk (guidelines for family discussion). Literature selections are used with some lessons to provide discussion points and to further clarify the instruction. The Appendix includes reproducible (for the family) copies of worksheets, literature selections, and a summary of 12 different worldviews. The "very back" of the guide includes nine cardstock pages which are used for some of the lesson activities. The curriculum packet includes the Guide plus pre-cut wrapping papers, three white boxes (flattened, six-inch cubes), and a pair of 3-D glasses. 87 pgs. pb. ~ Janice

    We try to be pragmatic at our house and in our business - whatever works well, whatever makes sense, that's what we try to do. I've not met Letz Farmer, the author of this book, but I'll bet she's a pragmatist also. Lots of practical, "that makes sense", ideas are included in this ball-and-stick method. For example, capital letters are taught first to minimize reversals that can occur in lower case letters (I thought Mark would never get "b" and "d" straight). Capital letters are taught according to "stroke families"; letters with only vertical and horizontal strokes are taught first; letters with slanted strokes are taught next; finally, letters which have a circular component are taught last, because these are the hardest. The first lower case letters taught are the ones that look exactly like their capital counterparts; next, the ones that look similar to their capital counterparts; and last, the ones that look nothing like their capital counterparts. Practice pages contain three lines for each letter; letters on the first line are thick and fully shaded, and show directional arrows for the starting point and direction of strokes; letters on the second line are thick outlines that allow for some "wiggle" as the child attempts to write his letter inside the outline; the third line is blank and allows the child to make his letters freeform. The book has a fold-flat plastic binding so that the student is not fighting a hump in the page as he attempts to print his letters. Each pair of pages is laid out so that the top of the pair is at the left-hand side as you open the book; when in its upright position, either right-handers or left-handers can use the book without disadvantage.

    Several other niceties are incorporated. A short story and cute illustrations help the child to remember each letter. The bottom of each practice page contains the alphabet, but missing some letters so the child can write them in the appropriate place. Phonics practice and (here's a first) sign language is incorporated if you want to use these along the way. Plus, Bible verses are used as part of each exercise.

    Where did Mrs. Farmer come up with all these good ideas? She credits her "child expert", daughter Laura. Nice job, Laura!

    This is a great book for the dinosaur lovers in your family. This beautifully illustrated hardcover book explores the legends and myths of dragons and offers historic links to what we now call dinosaurs. This large 10½" x 12" book has 24 thick cardstock, glossy-finished pages filled with surprises. Short passages of information printed in a medieval-style give character to the book. Pages may have envelopes to open for more information, flaps to lift, mini-books to read through, or fold-out pages just to keep you searching for the next piece of intriguing information. Presented through the lens of a Christian worldview, readers will learn what the Bible has to say about dinosaurs, what characters from the Bible encountered dinosaurs, Biblical translations of the word for dinosaur, and much more. Other historical documents are referenced and you'll even read of dinosaur accounts as recently as 1890. A short Q & A concludes the book as a recap of the information. Whatever you call them – tannin, drakon, or dragon, they are creatures of mystery that intrigue us all. - Donna

    From Arnold Ytreeide, author of Jotham's Journey, comes Bartholomew's Passage, another family advent story. The story follows Bartholomew, a young boy whose village is ransacked by Roman soldiers, as he travels through Israel searching for his family—through slavery, suffering, and adventurous escape. He finds his family one fateful night and introduces them to the Son of God born in the manger in Bethlehem. The book is divided into sections to be read one each day of the four weeks of the Advent season, with extra material and scripture for discussion at the end of each section. The story, meant to be read over the entire Advent season, is long with small two-color illustrations at the beginning of each section. It is not a picture book, but when used as a companion to Advent traditions, read aloud to the family by the light of the Advent candles, Bartholomew's Passage will be a meaningful reminder of God's great love and great gift to us in Jesus. A brief history of Advent customs and a chart of Advent dates until 2080 make this book easy to implement even for those unfamiliar with Advent traditions. Bartholomew's Passage includes violence and tragedy that may need to be summarized or skipped over for the youngest children, but it is the author's intent (as he states in his note to parents) that "the point is not to cover up the dark side of life but rather to show how the love of God and His Son Jesus Christ is the light of our lives." ~ Rachel D.

    From the front cover rendition of Jesus reaching out to take your hand to its very end, this book emphasizes that believe is an action word and believing the Word of God should change how you live your life. The book’s goal is for the parents to read these with their children, discussing and working through the Spiritual truths together.

    Chapters are organized into three sections of ten chapters each: Think, Act, and Be. Think focuses on core Christian beliefs (doctrines such as God’s character, salvation, identity in Christ and stewardship). Act focuses on Christian practices (such as worship, prayer, single-mindedness and giving) and Be focuses on Christian virtues that should be increasingly evident in a Christian life (the fruit of the Spirit). Each chapter contains several aids in Bible study. A Key Question, Idea and Verse identify the lesson’s main points. Think About It and Core Truths sections highlight the Scripture truth explored. At the end of each chapter, Discussion Questions explore Scripture meaning and life application. One blue line drawing in each chapter helps illustrate the Bible passage. This volume is the kids’ edition of the popular adult version of the same name also edited by Randy Frazee. Selections taken from the NIV, Reader’s Edition and are highlighted in blue, with references. A fairly in-depth yet user-friendly study to encourage each in your family to “walk as Jesus walked.” ~ Ruth
