I was expecting a book with a few Bible stories in it--this is a real children's Bible that has stories from creation right up to Paul! It begins with Papa getting ready to read a bedtime story to the cubs that reads "the cubs liked to imagine the Bible people being bears like themselves"..this intro could be read every time you read a story from this Bible. It ends with Papa saying a Bible story was the right choice! I love it!

My son will rarely sit for Bible story books at home, but he loves the Berenstain Bears. This was a hit. He has enjoyed reading it often for very long periods of time. Pictures are quite funny to the adult reader, keeping the time entertaining. There are some inaccuracies, like God created Adam and Eve, apparently at the same time, then later it says He created Eve so Adam wouldn't be alone. Also it stretches a bit and Daniel was found in the lions den the next day petting the lions and "One of the lions was licking Daniel's hand." I guess if you want real accuracy, stick to good ol' King James, but for now, my 3 year old loves this and I can just skip a few words here and there.

The world of children's Bibles can be a crowded place, and trying to find one that stands out from the crowd can be a difficult task indeed. Enter, "The Berenstain Bears, Storybook Bible. My children were so enamored with it I had to intervene as they were arguing over who would be able to look at it next! I loved how the authors created a space to present the Bible as if populated by the world of Berenstain Bears. They start the book by pretending that Papa Bear is offering up some of the best stories ever, the ones from the Bible, and Brother, Sister, and Honey bear are all excited. As they listen to the stories, they are able to imagine the characters from within the world as they see it. There is definite truth to that, because as any of us listen to the Bible we can picture ourselves in the story and see how the eternal truths can apply to our own lives!
My children raved about the colorful and action-oriented pictures, and especially liked how their favourite stories came to life. All of their most loved stories are included in this book, including the creation story, the story of Noah and the Ark, or the story of Queen Esther. The stories are quite faithful to the Bible, although of course many details are missing compared to the real version. Sometimes I missed some of the details the original story has. For example, in the story of Noah as depicted in the Storybook Bible, the authors state that the people are puzzled that the ark is being built; in the actual story, Noah makes it very clear why the ark is being built and why the people need to turn from their sin. However, I recognize that it would be impossible to include every detail in a children's version of the Bible, and I am very pleased overall with how accurate the Storybook Bible is.
I have no doubt that this version of the Bible will be asked for by my children over and over again in the coming years. Though we have a number of children's Bibles in our home, this one definitely provides a unique and fun way to present the truth. I award it 4.5 out of 5 stars.
