Ages 4 and up. (One image of beat-up character that some might find disturbing.)
This was such a fun, cute Bible for kids! I really enjoyed reading it. It was basically just a summary of the bible’s main events put in a storybook format (with no chapters or verses). The authors did a great job tying the biblical stories together and helping you see the big picture. The Tiny Truths Illustrated Bible is actually a good tool not only for kids, but also for adults who want an overview of the Bible.
This book was quite accurate to the original Bible stories – probably one of the most accurate children’s bibles I have ever read. That being said, it did have a few sentences I didn’t think were the best interpretation, and the last couple pages had some questionable teachings. But, I think these small inaccuracies can be easily explained to the child by the parents if their beliefs are different.
I loved all the details the pictures in this Bible held. There were funny scenes, lots of animals, and even “easter eggs” to other parts of the Bible. I found the illustrations for the people kind of cute, but also kind of scary… probably could’ve used eyelids.
Putting this illustrated book together must have been so much work! I can’t imagine how hard it would be to choose which stories to include and how many details to put in them. They explained all the stories well without adding any of the gross details that many parents wouldn’t want to read to their small children.
Reading this Bible was tons of fun, and I think your kids would enjoy it, too. Be prepared to explain some things and have a good time looking at the pictures!
