The Adventure Bible Storybook, Deluxe Edition, by Catherine DeVries, is incredible. Beautifully illustrated by Jim Madsen, it includes fifty Bible stories written in a simple, yet exciting, manner for young children. Each story begins with the Bible reference, so one could read the actual story from the Bible if desired. Each one ends with an Adventure Discovery, a bit of more detailed information pertaining to the story, as well as Words to Treasure, a Bible verse that could be easily used as a memory verse.
The Deluxe Edition enriches the Bible reading with two audio CDs. Each story in the book is presented on the CDs with character voices, music, and sound effects. In addition, the website listed, www.AdventureBible.com, is a wealth of extra Bible games and activities for children to extend their Christian education.
I highly recommend this children’s Bible. It would be a welcome addition to any home library or church program. It would definitely enhance a Sunday School or Children’s Church service. I especially liked the incredible illustrations and the audio CDs, both sure to draw the attention of young children.
I received this book free from the publisher and was not required to write a positive review.
