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

Ok Jan, Kris, Jaymie and Dana....
I've seen those Bibles too. In fact, I compared them all side by side this past week while looking to buy my nine year old a new Bible. Personally, I think they each leave a lot to be desired. They are the entire text of the Bible with some pictures crammed in, and in one case, some extra kid notes.

"If I were the Bible Pope"... Here's what I'd create:
    -Major stories, not the entire Bible for my 9 year old.
    -Each story well illustrated, not just every tenth page.
    -Kid Study Notes for each story.
    -Includes Questions to Consider and fun facts.
    -And not the "exact" translation -but a "young readers" version of the translation (not a paraphrase)

So where do I find such a Bible?

I have copies of Lion Publishing's 365 Bible Stories and I like it. But sometimes it's too much of a paraphrase. And it has NO notes.
