Book Review: Precious Moments Storybook Bible

I have to start out this review admitting that I am a bit biased on this one. I love Precious Moments and have been collecting them for years! All of the children now have collections also and we have taken a field trip to the Precious Moments Museum. It was very easy for me to choose this Storybook Bible for a review, because I was pretty sure I was going to love it and it would be an easy review to write.

The Precious Moments Storybook Bible by Sam Butcher is a hardcover book with a padded front cover and is 179 pages long. It was definitely written with the younger child in mind. These shortened Bible Stories each have a beautiful pastel colored illustration to help make the story come alive to go along with it. The text is based on the International Children's Bible translation. This Storybook Bible has large print and is easy to read to young children and also for beginning readers to read on their own. Topics in Table of Contents include: Favorite Bible Classics (ex.Creation, Garden of Eden, Jesus is Killed on the Cross) , Words of Praise and Wisdom (ex.The Lord is My Shepherd, Wise Words of Solomon, Telling the Truth), More Stories of Faith (ex. Daniel, Jonah, Jesus Heals and Teaches), and Songs and Prayers (ex.Jesus Loves Me, Amazing Grace). There also is a section in the front for your child's: Family Tree, Church Record, and Favorite Things. In the back of the book is a section for you to write in a Prayer from Someone Who Loves Me and My Own Bedtime Prayer.

We love the Precious Moments Storybook Bible. This beautiful engaging book will be something that your children, grandchildren, or other special child in your life will want to read and you will want to read to them. They will enjoy the illustrations and stories and all the while will be soaking up important Bible truths that will be hidden in their hearts. A beautiful keepsake book that can be passed down to future generations. "The Precious Moments Storybook Bible is a beautiful way to introduce your young ones to a personal relationship with God, and a precious reminder of God's faithfulness that you can lovingly pass down to future generations."

I received a complimentary copy of the Precious Moments Storybook Bible from Thomas Nelson for the purpose of writing a fair and honest review. I received no other compensation.

Thanks so much for sharing this. I hadn't heard about this. I was a huge Precious Moments fan when I was growing up. You mentioned your children & I wanted to share a new application I recently was introduced to. I found it's a good way to get them started on the right track with reading their Bibles at an early age. Children's Bible is designed for ages 3-13 & is made up of comic books that deal with many of the most important stories in the Bible. It's a free app & available for most styles of smart phones. My kids have really enjoyed it & we have used it to start them with their own quiet time. I just wanted to share because it is such a cool way to get the children started out young with the Word. Definitely worth checking out at childrenbible.org - I think you'll enjoy it.
