Bibles and Bible stories
The Usborne Children's Bible
Heather Amery was born and brought up in Bath, Somerset. Heather has written over a hundred books for children, including alphabet books, science and history books, craft books, classical fairy tales, a series for beginner readers called Farmyard Tales, Bible stories, and Greek Myths. She has also compiled word books, song books, and books of poetry.
This is a stunningly illustrated collection of the best-known and best-loved stories from the Bible, perfect for reading alone or out loud. Its brightly coloured pages and pictures make this a fun way to read stories from both the Old and New Testaments. This book is certain to become much loved and much read by children and adults alike.
I'm an atheist but I found this a lovely book for my 9 year old to read with me to learn the stories that have had such an impact on Western Civilisation. The pictures are colourful and truly outstanding. It presents the more violent stories in such a way that they are not too disturbing for children. The stories are short and easy to read and clearly divided up so you can dip into and out of the book. I'd highly recommend this lovely book to both Christians, and those who would like their kids to have a grounding in the most well known stories of the Old and New Testaments.
