Crossway Books & Bibles The Big Picture Story Bible: Book & Audio CDs

Everyone loves a good story especially children! But what we sometimes overlook is that the Bible is more than a collection of great stories. It is the real account of God's love for the world.

The Big Picture Story Bible presents this remarkable true story. Simple words and striking illustrations unfold the story line of God's Word and His love for the world from Genesis to Revelation. All ages will enjoy this exciting discovery of a God who keeps his big promise! Especially recommended for ages 2—7.

Now includes an audio reading of the book!

Bright and vibrant illustrations on large glossy pages; large print; simplified Bible stories--this combination made for an enjoyable experience for my three and four year olds.

This story Bible is good for preschool age children.
The pictures are delightful and look like watercolor paintings. The faces are easy to see and show different emotions. The scenery is bright and filled with detail.
The stories themselves are based on the Bible. The author paraphrased many of the familiar Bible stories so that they are easier to understand. The shorter stories help hold the attention of young children. The author even has questions you can ask the child as you are reading. These questions help the child be a part of the story.
If you are looking for a gift Bible for a young child this Bible is a good choice.

This is a good book for those wanting an entire overview of the progress of the Bible from start to end, ie: the Big picture, in a format that children can understand. However it is not at all detailed. If you're wanting detailed stories as in most children's Bibles, you may be disappointed. The quality of the audio was excelllent, and I'd rather purchase this as an item for children to listen to alone than a book to read during our devotional times. If you're wanting shorter stories for younger children, this has plenty of pictures. I gave it a 3 for expectations as I guess I'd expected more detail.

This past November Crossway published a new edition of The Big Picture Bible with 2 audio cds that give a full reading of the text. I loved the original edition so I was very excited that they were making a new edition that would include audio to accompany it. My girls are 5 and 7 and enjoyed the recording as we listened to it in the car yesterday. The recording is made to read the story Bible while listening so it has a small bell sound after each page to signal the child to turn the page. I think this Story Bible is best for 4-6 year olds. With the audio, it would be a great nap time diversion for children who need to spend some time in their room while younger siblings nap (like mine do). The voice on the audio is very easy to listen to. At times it almost seems a little slow, but if you are reading along, it's a good tempo. We were listening to it without the book last night, so that was why it seemed a little slow with the beeps for turning the pages.
The Story Bible gives children a great view of what the Bible is all about--rather than teaching the stories from the Bible as isolated stories. It really helps children understand that the Bible is all about God's plan.
The other edition is still available on Amazon without the audio, but I'd really recommend getting the edition with the audio for just a few more dollars instead.
Please note that I received a complimentary copy of this book from Crossway for review.
