Stories from the Bible in a 365 Day Format for Kids

I really liked this "Bible", although, I personally wouldn't call it a Bible. It is really a neat way to display the Bible in your home and remember to read it daily to your kids. This would sit nicely on a dresser or shelf in your child's room for a bedtime or maybe even a quick morning story. The stories are short and begin with Creation going all the way through the Bible ending with Paul's arrival to Rome. Each day may be a whole story or possibly a part of a longer story such as the story of  Joseph which was divided up over several days. 

One thing that I thought could have been added was the Scriptures for the daily readings. They were not included and would be nice if a person wanted to read more of that story or read it directly out of the Bible. There is a reading for each day of the year, numbered at the top. It has a hardback stand that folds out so it can be upright and a spiral top such as a desk calendar.  
The pages are brightly illustrated with characters from each story. It is also a bit heavy, so would need to be treated with care so the pages would not tear.  It is not a typical devotional as it doesn't include any personal thoughts or prayers. Overall, you or your child would be reading an excerpt from the Bible on a daily basis.

I would certainly recommend this and really liked the one I received as a complimentary copy from Kregel to review. I was not required to review it positively.

You can purchase your copy on Amazon
