Booklook Review: Adventure Bible for Little Ones

I still have mine-an original Adventure Bible from the 90’s. I can’t bring myself to part with it, because it’s the Bible I was using when I came to know the Lord. It’s the first place my Dad wrote down the date of my salvation and baptism, and for that reason I’m a little sentimental and attached. Anyway, since I grew up with an Adventure Bible I wanted to see what they were putting out for today’s little ones to read, and this is their Adventure Bible for Little Ones, formerly titled Adventure Bible for Toddlers.

Catherine DeVries authored Adventure Bible for Little Ones and Jim Madsen illustrated. Included in this boardbook collection are ten narratives from the Old and New Testaments:

  • The Adventure Begins-Genesis 1
  • Noah’s Ark-Genesis 6-9
  • Moses’ Many Adventures-Exodus
  • Boy Versus Giant-1 Samuel 17
  • Drooling Lions-Daniel 6
  • Fish Food-Jonah 1-4
  • Jesus Is Born-Luke 2:1-7
  • Jesus is Baptized-Matthew 19:13-17
  • Jesus and the Children-Matthew 19:13-15
  • The Adventure Continues-The Gospels of Matthew, Mark, Luke & John

Overall, I found the illustrations bright, clear, and very appealing to this age. The stories had simple descriptions with good toddler/preschooler vocabulary. For instance, DeVries used animal sounds (moo, baa, etc) and that’s something that this age absolutely loves. The only criticism I have of the illustrations is pretty much the same as every other Bible story book-a “Jesus” illustration that appears as a Caucasian. Hopefully I don’t have to explain that if you are reading this far. 😉

I would recommend this little Bible for kiddos. I loved the “Adventure” theme and think it would make a great gift or reader for toddlers and preschoolers. Age 2-5 is pretty broad, but I think that even in our house both girls (now 3.5 and 5 months) will enjoy it for a while.
