Read and Share Bible - Children's Book Review and Giveaway



Tommy Nelson, the children’s division of Thomas Nelson, Inc., was created to place into the hands of children of all ages a wide variety of high quality, enjoyable products that are consistent with the teachings found in the Bible. Their products are designed to expand children’s imaginations and nurture their faith while pointing them to a personal relationship with God. First and foremost,Tommy Nelson is a children’s company that creates, markets and distributes books, Bibles, home video and audio products, music and other related ancillary products such as plush toys, games and action figures aimed at children ages 0-14.


I'm probably more unceremonious than most Christians, but teaching my children about the Christian faith is still quite important to me. In some areas of life, I promote individuality and differing points-of-view with my children. However, I can't help but hope and help promote my view of my faith with them.

I recently received a Read and Share Bible from Thomas Nelson for review. After looking through and reading the Bible, I find that my children are too old for this particular book. With that being said, I think it's a great Bible for youngsters to start out on. There are more than 200 Bible stories throughout, with characterful illustrations. This Bible shares stories adapted from the International Children's Bible. Each story is a only a couple of pages long, making it a choice book to read to those with shorter attention spans. Included with each story is a discussion starter that makes children think about what they would do in a situation or what choices they would make. I think the appropriate age range for this Bible is from 3 years to 7 years of age. If you know of a younger child that you'd like to get started on learning about the Bible, then the Read and Share Bible is an excellent choice.

Thanks so much for sharing this with us - always enjoy your posts. This one brought to mind a new application that was shared with our family over the holidays. Children's Bible is designed for ages 3-13 & is made up of comic books that deal with many of the most important stories in the Bible. It's a free app & available for most styles of smart phones. My kids have really enjoyed it & we have used it to start them on the right track with taking time to read the Bible. I just wanted to share because it is such a cool way to get the children started out young with the Word. Definitely worth checking out childrenbible.org - and thought you may want to share with your readers.
