Reply to "Bibles for Children, Presenting Bibles to Children"

Our new favorite Bible version for kids is "The NIV Adventure Bible" published by Zonderkids. The study notes are for 8-12 year olds. We used these for the first time this year to "gift" to our 4th/5th graders for their Bible commitment class. Not only does it have a cool cover that cries out to be picked up (purple with hologram pictures!) but almost every page has some type of note on it ... "words to treasure", "life in Bible times", "did you know?", "people in Bible times", and "let's live it!". It's VERY kid friendly, and yet is a "real Bible".

Like Neil, we use several storybook Bibles in our rotation. We have 4 workshops and I try to match up a different story version with 3 workshops and use 1 with the NIV version. That way the kids might hear a different twist each time.

We use "The Family Story Bible" by Ralph Milton/Westminster John Knox Press, "The Children's Bible in 365 Stories" (Lion Publishing), and then I try to find one other telling of the story, sometimes from the internet or the library. Next month we're doing Good Samaritan and I found a story you read while the kids make a certain sound effect for each character as they're mentioned in the story. I also found an OLD Arch Books (remember those?!) story of Good Sam when I was rummaging through our church library ... the copyright is 1964!!! But it tells the story in rhyme and we're going to use it for our puppet show script! You never know what might work! Ha ha!
