Today I need to review for you a wonderful children's Bible. I've had this book for a while now and have been meaning to post a review; but, between work, school, packing, moving, and having the flu, I just haven't had a chance to do it. Until now.
"I Will Follow Jesus Bible Storybook" was written by Judah and Chelsea Smith and it retails for about $12 on Amazon. It is a little over 200 pages and is geared towards children ages four to eight. There is a different story on every page with a scripture reference. The stories sum up the scripture reference and come with a very detailed and colorful picture which depicts the story being told. There are usually children in each of the pictures and I think the thing I love about this most is that there are children of all shapes and sizes, ages and stages, and color in each of the photos. In other words, it's not all a bunch of pretty white kids and I think that makes it more relatable to all children. The book is a hardback and is about the size of around 7x8 inches. It's a good size for carrying to church or leaving by your child's bedside so you can read a story from it each night.
The book does not cover every verse in the Bible, but does include most familiar stories from both the Old and New Testaments such as Noah's ark, Zacchaeus, Daniel and the lion's den, Jonah and the big fish among others. It's such a cute book and I think it will help interest your children in learning more about the Bible and also help them learn what it means to follow Jesus.
