Train up a child in the way he should go, and when he is old he will not depart from it.

The Big Picture Story Bible - Review

The Big Picture Story Bible

We received The Big Picture Story Bible last year as a gift from our pastor in Las Vegas and it has turned out to be one of the best gifts for our family. Every morning at breakfast, I read a chapter to the kids and they always BEG for me to read more. This isn't like any other children's Bible we've seen. The author, David Helm, does a wonderful job of showing children that the Bible isn't just a collection of stories, but the one very important true story of God's big promise. The illustrations by Gail Schoonmaker are so vivid and captivating, my children enjoy every page. I highly recommend this book if you are a parent or teacher of young children. You will not be disappointed!
