Containing 365 stories, The Candle Classic Bible from Candle Books is filled with Bible stories that can be read daily either by a child or the entire family.  Each story has the book and chapter that it is taken from, so you can read more about it in the Bible.  The illustrations are well done and the hardcover helps to keep the book in excellent condition.

My thoughts-

I enjoy reading children’s Bible storybooks and The Candle Classic Bible from Candle Books for juveniles was really good.  I thought the story length and the amount of detail was perfect for the short Bible stories.  These 365 stories also included where they came from in the Bible, so we could have studied further in the Bible.  B was enjoying reading the stories after I had read some to both of them.

Some more things I liked:

  • It had a nice hardcover and was only 14.99.
  • It contained many of Jesus’s parables.
  • The table of contents listed the different sections in bold.
  • The illustrations were well done and on most pages.

The only thing I didn’t like was the lack of stories from the end of the New Testament, like Revelations or Romans.  I am glad though that there were more stories than are typically in Bible storybooks.

I highly recommend The Candle Classic Bible for children and their families who want to learn more about God.  This book would also be good for those who are learning English or want a good introduction to the Bible.

C (age 7) said, “I liked the illustrations.  I liked the stories.  It is good for kids my age.”

B (age 9) said, “It was a very good book.  I really liked illustrations.  The book was very good for kids my age.”
