This was a fun, interactive book that my children will enjoy for many years to come. Don’t mistake this illustrated book to be a replacement for a Bible. It’s more like a Bible storybook. This book synopsis says that it is for children eight and under. However, my ten-year-old enjoyed the illustrations and stories just the same.
The Action Storybook Bible would be a wonderful devotional tool to get children excited about the scripture. The illustrations are gripping and truly the work of a master artist. In fact—Sergio Cariello has provided artwork for Marvel and DC Comics. He has brought to life Batman, Spiderman, Fantastic Four and dozens of other characters. His expertise brings the Bible to life in an innovative and creative way that children will appreciate.
I think it’s important for young children to have a guide to help them establish a close walk with the Lord. A person isn’t going to know how to do that. They have to be taught and led. Each story in this book is followed by a call to action that will do just that.
This is an excellent choice in a book for parents and children to read together to grow their faith.
