Our children LOVE Bible stories. In fact, my son Ben is constantly begging me to act out his favorite Bible stories with him. I am always watching behind my back to make sure that “David” is not about to hurl a stone at me (this has happened before but fortunately the stone was a sock).
Not only is the Bible full of wonderful, imaginative stories but it tells the most wonderful story of all of Jesus Christ come to rescue God’s fallen world.
Our favorite Bible resources are:
|The Action Bible in action!|
Despite the corny title, The Action Bible is an incredibly comprehensive storybook Bible. Our son Ben has spent hours looking at its 752 colored pages (and he can’t even read yet). This storybook even covers minor prophets and events that most storybook bibles skip. The dialogue is serious and often mimics the biblical text.
Our children love The Jesus Storybook Bible so much that it is now a “magazine” (translation: the cover fell off). The illustrations are bright and wonderful and the content is even better. Sally Lloyd-Jones introduces children to the person of Christ with a fresh winsome style that leaves even adults weeping at the foot of the cross.
While not a Bible story, All Things Bright and Beautiful wows with gorgeous illustrations of the classic hymn. Perfect for young children!
Our son Ben enjoys listening to Inspired by the Bible Experience: The Complete Bible while going to sleep at nap time and bed time. The translation is modern and easy to understand.
In the Time of Noah (Old Stories)
These two books by N.D. Wilson may challenge your traditional memories of these biblical stories, but they definitely will not bore.
