- Review by Sally
From the Book:
The Bible is not a fairy tale, but every great story happened “once upon a time”. “The Once Upon a Time Storybook Bible” highlights powerful and inspiring stories from the Bible—including Noah’s Ark, David and Goliath, Brave Queen Esther, the Birth of Jesus, Feeding the 5,000 and Jesus Resurrection.
The artwork and illustrations by Omar Aranda will keep your child turning the pages as they learn about the heroes of the Bible.
This Bible has a beautifully illustrated hard cover. It has a “presented to” page in the front so it can easily be given for a special event or a just because I love you gift. It covers the ageless stories from both the Old and New Testaments. There are 18 stories from the Old Testament and 15 stories from the New Testament and has 144 pages. The stories begin with a scripture verse and are short in length insuring it will hold your child’s attention from beginning to end.
In my opinion this is one of the best Bible storybooks for this age group I have read and reviewed in a while and would highly recommend it.
