Read and Share Bible, with Giveaway

As a mom of young children, I am always on the lookout for ways to share Bible stories with my kids. We have many Bible storybooks, and each has merits of its own. The Read and Share Bible by Thomas Nelson is the newest addition to our Bible storybook collection. (Be sure to check the amazon link. At the time I am writing this, amazon has this Bible for a bargain!)

The Read and Share Bible contains over 200 stories from the Bible. Each story is told over two pages with vivid illustrations covering both pages. The stories are paraphrased to make them easier for children to understand, but the Biblical message is not altered. One aspect that I like about this book is that each Bible story includes a summary statement or a question to encourage discussion and application. Additionally, because there are over 200 stories, this Bible includes narratives that are often left out of other children’s Bibles (e.g., the day the sun stood still, some of the prophets, etc…). This would make a great daily reading for young children with short attention spans!

If you would like to share stories about Adam and Eve, Noah, Joseph, and many more with your young children and grandchildren, I recommend the Read and Share Bible.

We have one copy to give away, so please leave a comment if you are interested. We will announce the winner in this column on January 24.

Book Blogger Lauren is a wife, mother of two, and an avid reader. She thanks Thomas Nelson for the review copy of this book. Lauren blogs at Baseballs and Bows.

    I’d love to receive this book. My 16 month old is at that age where he loves to be read to. I’m sure him and I would enjoy this book a lot.

    Thanks for the giveaway!

    I love that there are so many different versions of the Bible for kids to understand. I’d love to add this to our library of books or give it as a present to a friend of family member.

    Even though my kids are older (7, 10, & 12), they still love to hear Bible stories. If I won, I’d present this to my newest neighbor…she was born last month! :)

    My son loves reading and I’ve been starting to think of ways to introduce reading Bible related stuff to him. This looks like it would be perfect.

    I like the idea of posing questions at the end of the stories. This book of kid’s bible stories sounds better (more engaging and developmentally appropriate) than the ones that I sometimes am asked to read when I take my turn teaching Sunday school to preschoolers.

    I’d love to have this for my youth group at church. They are between 5 and 7 years of age and love Bible stories.

    I would very much love to win this book. My daughter is so very much into Bible stories and can’t get enough of them. She goes to Catholic school (1st grade) and is always asking questions. Thanks so much for the chance to win such a fabulous book.

    I’ve tried to find a bible story book like the one I had as a child, but no luck so far. This might be its replacement!

  11. says

    I would love this for my four year old. We too have read some Bible storybooks and the stories are either too loo long or the meaning not clear to her. Thanks!
