    Had to stop reading this book. Although I never read the bible, because I don't believe in it. I really tried to like it. The book presentation is great, with great drawings and pictures. I just didn't like the violence and incest stuff. It gave me more questions than answers.

    Nice change of pace from our other story Bibles, cool illustrations, but the retellings are not my favorite. There were many rephrasing, especially of direct quotations, that seemed unnecessary to me.

    The best bible for children and adults. Devoid of all complications (mostly), theoretical jargon, and long, boring passages. I picked up this book again because it was a book that enchanted me as a child. I wanted to read a bible, and had been unable to read it front to back. I begun thinking at a small group of the wonderful children's bible I used to have.

DK has simple but informative books that make dissecting information much easier (there was a Chinese book I picked up earlier in the year for a Mandarin refresher). The illustrations are beautiful enough that, if the author did stories from the Quran or another holy text, I would read them too with illustrations as beautiful as these. I feel that this book will be one I turn back to again and again, as well as feel good to pass onto my own children should I have them.

    We jumped ship on this children's bible about halfway through. It had its merits - many stories that other children's bibles tend to overlook are included, the pictures are great, and the story lengths are perfect for tackling one story per night before bed. The writing irritated me though. Some of the wording was no clearer or kid-friendly than as they appear in the bible itself. I liked that very few details were left out, but the author failed to word the stories in a way that all my children We jumped ship on this children's bible about halfway through.

After a few weeks of going through this each night, I found myself using the pictures and narration as a guide to tell the stories myself. Not a bad thing necessarily, but not exactly a thumbs up for The Children's Illustrated Bible either.

    I read a German translation of this. First time reading the through the bible, and I feel like I have at least a familiarity with most of the major stories which I think helps to understand a lot of Christian and Jewish culture. The illustrations, maps, and historical facts are also really nice and honestly I wonder if they have a full version like this for adults. It really helps to get visuals and additional info, although I guess footnotes could also do the trick.

    This book is perfect for introducing children to some of key stories from the Bible, and makes a great addition to RS lessons for younger ones. Translating the Bible into this format makes it much more accessible and engaging for children and is therefore a must have for RS teachers looking to delve into christianity.

    Had to step out of Mass this morning due to a 10-month-old that wanted to practice his new walking skills. I saw this on a table in the church's library and picked it up. I was easily able to find the parable that the priest was discussing in the next room and read it to my son. He listened and looked at the pages but could still crawl around the way he needed to. So he still got something spiritual out of the morning! I've only read a few pages, but I like the format and the illustrations.

It seems like it's at a perfect level for reading with children, but not too "diluted" like other children's Bible stories I've seen. It also seems to cover a wider range of the Bible than those other ones. I'm thinking of getting a copy for our home now, but in the meantime I'll definitely be using this one at church whenever I have to take a squirmy little boy into another room!

    The merits of this book are obvious -- nice, handy bindings, good combination of texts and graphics, key maps and photographs. But how does the compiler filtering out the contents for children? All the group punishment and suffering aside, how can one avoid the Abraham and Issac, or Jephathah's Daughter? The former had a happy ending but then we have the heart-wrenching actual death of Jephathah's daughter in the hand of her father. At least this compilation did not flinch from these stories.

I wonder how would a parent explain the story to a child. I keep this book for my own use. Let the cynical adult to laugh and scoff; for me, it is handy to have around when I need to check up a story.

    Loved this children's version of the Bible. My husband and I wanted something that would be easy to understand for our children and would not leave out stories for illustration sake. Too many Bible we came across left our so many stories (went from Jonah to the birth of Christ) or left out everything after the resurrection. We wanted the WHOLE Bible in children's language.

    As bibles go, I think I liked this one best. The only part that's at all interesting about the bible are the stories, and this DK book really makes them appear for what they are: exaggerated myths for children to behave so that the boogey-man doesn't get them. I read it a few times as a child, and I have a better background and understanding of the bible (and due to that, the crazy thing that is religion) thanks to this illustrated bible.

    I like it for not cleaning up the messy parts and good pictures. The last two stars I withheld because they left out too many of the best stories - especially in Judges - and because their storytelling needs work.

    I was trying to incorporate the bible in our history lessons, and was excited when I came across this book. I love how this book makes the bible accessible to children without adding made-up details, and covers more than the usual stories.

    The kids like it as it is easier to relate to this version. The pictures are simple and illustrative. A good buy even though it doesn't adhere to a specific bible version it definitely is the better version to get the kids interested in learning the Bible.

    This review has been hidden because it contains spoilers. To view it, click here. A very well detailed book about the history in Christianity. Detailed over important parts such the crucification , Moses, Jericho and other parts. Highly recommended for people who want to learn about the history of how our lord almighty started the world.

    This is a great Bible for kids who are too old for picture books and too young to read word-only versions. The sidebars include historical information about the topics. I read this with my 9 year-old granddaughter.

    This isn't the illustrated Bible I had, but close enough. Let it be said that the Bible IS, in fact, good reading when in cartoon format.

    Wonderful illustrations. A few minor liberties taken with the stories, and some background info to the sides of the stories that I could do without. So, illustrations 4.5 stars and text 3.5.

    Beautiful colored drawings that spark young imaginations of what favorite Biblical scenes may have looked like as they read or listen to timeless Bible stories.

    Another great children's Bible. I would not recommend this to children younger than 5, though. It's more "informative" than some of the others.

    This is a great first step into the Bible and it’s history with children. I still use it as a resource when I k own I’ll have to talk about Bible stories with kids.
