The Action Storybook Bible {Book Review}

I really enjoyed the layout, illustrations, and delivery of the Bible stories found in The Action Storybook Bible. My 6 children range in age from 17-3; this particular Bible storybook isn't really one that interest my 3 year olds, but my 5 year old son enjoys it.....and his 15 year old brother enjoys reading it to him! I think my 5 year old will continue to grow into this book, as it isn't too "cutesy" and should hold his interest for a while. As a family we enjoy DC & Marvel comics, and I think that is one reason we like the Bible illustrations. I still strongly recommend (as I would for any storybook Bible) that this is not your only source of Bible knowledge for you or your kids, but that you incorporate it into time spent within a Bible as well.
