My thoughts-

The first thing I noticed about this book was the illustrations.  They are very well done.  Kudos to Jo Parry.  I sat down and read the book.  I enjoyed the text.  Juliet David did such a wonderful job of summarizing the Bible stories, so they covered everything. 

My favorite part was the addition of the Lord’s Prayer.  I have yet to read a children’s Bible with it.  It is so important for children to learn how to pray and to learn the Lord’s Prayer.

My children (ages nine and seven) enjoy these types of Bibles and this one is bound to be one of their favorites.  They have been enjoying it as much as I have.

I plan on picking up a copy of Candle Bible for Kids for my nephews and any young children who come into my life.  I recommend you do the same.

C’s (age seven, first grade) Thoughts-

I liked the illustrations, because they are really nice.  I think it would be good for kids my age to read and to be read to.
