The Story Travelers Bible by Tracey Madder
The Story Travelers Bible by Tracey Madder with colorful lively illustrations by Tim Crecelius, is a unique one of a kind bible for young readers. Unlike other childrens' bibles which are usually a collection of individual bible stories, this new book for children presents the story of the bible from Genesis to Revelation from the point of view of modern, time traveling kids that act as tour guides. This book turns the bible into a literal adventure- almost like a science fiction time travel saga just for kids. The narrative is detailed and engaging. It includes bible stories and a narrative from the point of the time traveling kids who add their own commentary and perceptions. This is an original idea that packages the truths of the bible in an entirely new way. Full color illustrations and colorful graphics keep the reader engaged. This bible storybook is perfectly suited for a parent to read to their child or for younger readers to read on their own. Side bars of information make this book like a study bible which serves to aide a child in understanding how to apply God's word or even the context. As a parent I found this bible to be a pleasant surprise. Its detailed enough in that this bible can grow as your child's faith and knowledge grows. Unlike many bible story books for young children, this is not a bible story book that will be quickly outgrown. As a blogger for Tyndale bloggers I received a copy of this book for the purpose of writing this review. This bible is published by Tyndale Kids publishers.
