Each book features a great intro page that tells important facts, shows a timeline of the book's events and gives a synopsis that is written in a fun and engaging way- just to name a few. There are also great bios of the heroes of the Bible; fun facts that make the Biblical text relate-able; and, of course, hands-on activities sprinkled throughout that literally give kids the chance to experience the meaning of God's word and grasp it in a more tangible way.
Possibly one of my favorite aspects of this Bible are "The Jesus Connection" segments that explain how everything in the Bible relates back to Jesus. What a valuable and useful tool! In that way it reminds me a lot of the Jesus Storybook Bible, which we love!
The last thing I absolutely love about this Bible, and simply couldn't close my post without mentioning, is the website that accompanies it! You can check it out at MyHandsOnBible.com. This site is packed with great resources for learning about the Bible and even a wonderful, downloadable family study book.
I have been truly impressed with this Bible and am quite sure that we will be using it in our home devotions and homeschool for many years to come. It is a fantastic first Bible for Rhythm and will probably even purchase one for Lion Cub when he gets old enough!
Do you think this might be a Bible you would like for your children? If so, you can purchase one right here.
