As a parent, I am constantly on the lookout for devotional materials for my kids. Finding a resource that faithfully presents Bible stories in an age-appropriate way is sometimes difficult. I’m not quite ready to explain to my 3 year old what a harlot is (1. we’re still working on flushing, 2. there are a lot of harlots in the Bible); but on the flip side I don’t want something so watered-downed it’s no longer faithful to Scripture. Enter The Child’s Story Bible.
Catherine Vos and Banner of Truth have come through with this resource. This book does a great job of telling the stories of the Bible in faithful AND age-appropriate ways. The language is simple enough for young readers to read on their own. (I’ve had my 6 year old read portions.) Each story takes about 10-15 minutes to read out loud and is perfect for a bedtime story. It also structures the stories in such a way so that you can get a grasp of the big picture of the story of redemption.
It’s also a beautiful book. It includes 26th full color illustrations, a ribbon marker, and is a gorgeous hardback edition. Banner of Truth has made a Story Bible that will last a lifetime. If you are looking for a resource that will last throughout your children’s life, this is it.
I received a free copy of this book for a fair and honest review.
