Thomas has been wanting to have a Bible of his own, so I jumped at this chance. And I am very glad I did. What a great Bible! Bright, colorful, with lots and lots of interesting information, and very high kid-appeal. The publisher's description will do better than anything I can write:
Jesus taught with hands-on lessons and illustrations. The Hands-On Bible uses the same experience-based learning to communicate God’s Word in an active, understandable way. This new edition features updated tip-ins, a more portable size for kids, an attractive cover, and online parenting helps. With hundreds of fun, memorable activities (A “Do-It” activity in EVERY feature!) and the full New Living Translation text, the Hands-On Bible is packed with activities and experiences that invite kids to crawl inside the Scriptures and “do” God’s Word!We are having so much fun with this Bible. The maps at the back are fantastic, and my boys have loved the introductions to the books of the Bible. The appendix has kid-friendly definitions, and even a FAQ article.
There are lots of additional resources available too. There are devotions available, and this same page also has a Bible reading plan, and songs available for download. At the Tyndale House page, you can download a great excerpt.
Right now there is a drawing going on for 12 family pizza nights, two hardcover Bibles, a Hands-On Bible Curriculum, and all three volumes of What's in the Bible. It's a bit involved -- but head on over and read about it!
And I'm giving away a certificate for a free Hands-On Bible. To enter, you must visit the Tyndale House page, take a look at the PDF excerpt, and leave me a comment telling me what feature appeals to you the most.
