Bible Recommendations for Children and Sunday School
and Presenting Bibles to Children
Please offer your recommendation for Bibles for children. List title, publisher, age group, and WHY you think it is a good recommendation.
Please also share how you "present" Bibles to children.
See the "related links" below for "Storybook" Bible topics.
Weblinks tend to go out of date, as do some products, but many of the really good Bibles for children stick around. The Christian publishing world also comes up with new formats built around popular translations. The following discussion reflects both newer and older recommendations.
Point of view:
While most churches have a "preferred" or "approved" version of scripture they want Sunday School to use, today's Sunday School teachers are taking advantage of a wide variety of published Bibles and Bible storybooks for younger AND older children. Most Sunday Schools end up creating a "library" of Bibles and storybooks to draw upon. And some are introducing digital Bibles in their lesson repertoire -- which in the "Age of the Smartphone" and web-based learning is a great idea.
