The bestselling The Jesus Storybook Bible, written by Sally Lloyd-Jones and illustrated by Jago, is celebrating its phenomenal success with this beautiful clothbound gift edition that includes a ribbon marker. The Jesus Storybook Bible tells the Story beneath all the stories in the Bible. From Noah to Moses to the great King David––every story points to Jesus. He is like the missing piece in a puzzle––the piece that makes all the other pieces fit together. From the Old Testament through the New Testament, as the Story unfolds, children will pick up the clues and piece together the puzzle. A Bible like no other, The Jesus Storybook Bible invites children to join in the greatest of all adventures, to discover for themselves that Jesus is at the center of God's great story of salvation––and at the center of their story too.

With the new The Jesus Storybook Bible (Keepsake Gift Edition), there are just a few changes. The cover is a beautiful blue cloth-like textured hardcover with gold foil accents. The book is also bigger and offers larger page sizes (about 1 inch both in height and in width). The illustrations and text are all just scaled up (which means it offers larger illustrations and a larger font size), which is great for reading to a family and/or group. This edition remains the same thickness/page count as the previous editions.
Our family started out with The Jesus Storybook Bible in the Deluxe Edition (with CDs) - and we have loved it! We keep the CDs in the car at all times and have loved reading the book together.
If you have not yet experienced The Jesus Storybook Bible - it is fabulous! It is a storybook Bible, so you need to keep in mind that this is written as a "story" and the author may take some liberties in descriptions of events, etc. What I love is that every story finishes with a tie back to Jesus. Even as an adult, I have learned from The Jesus Storybook Bible, and I love that my kids have it as part of their foundation.
I would love to see the larger book size of The Jesus Storybook Bible (Keepsake Gift Edition) paired with the audio CDs as a set - that would be the best combination, in my opinion.

Each of her books are never a disappointment. She has a real knack for getting to the hearts of children through the words she writes.
The Jesus storybook Bible is no different. She examines and replicates stories throughout the Bible. Many of these stories are ones we heard growing up. She takes them and breaks them down simply for our little ones to enjoy. But she doesn't leave it at that, she goes a bit further. She reexamines God's love for them and displays it perfectly.
This Bible is beautifully bound in a type of cloth that makes it great for gift giving. Geared for ages 4-8 and is absolutely breathtaking in every way.

I’ve told pretty much everyone I know who has kids (and many who don’t) that they need to check it out!
This Gift Edition of The Jesus Storybook Bible is gorgeous, too! It’s a lovely cloth covered hardback with gold foil lettering that looks marvelous on my shelf. I almost don’t want to read it and see it become worn like my old copy, but I will, because it’s just too good not to.
