I’ve reviewed Kenneth Taylor’s terrific Bible memory books already; now, let’s look at his The Bible in Pictures for Little Eyes. Again, he has a real gift for communicating on a very young child’s level. This story Bible has been around awhile. The volume pictured on the left is the one my husband and I each grew up reading (and the one we now have to read to our children). The one on the right has updated illustrations.
This story Bible has quite a few Bible stories in it; it doesn’t skip over the gruesome stories or gloss over events such as the sacrifice of Isaac or the Passover. Instead, Taylor communicates the essence of the story in a way young children can understand. After each short story (about 2 paragraphs), there are some simple comprehension questions for children about the story.
It’s worth pointing out that this Bible does have pictures of Jesus (obviously–the front of the newest version shows Christ). If that is not troublesome for you, then I highly recommend checking this one out!
