The Action Storybook Bible takes children from the beginning Bible book of Genesis to the ending book of Revelation in storybook format. Children can visualize through color illustrations what Jesus (Yeshua), Adam and Eve, Abraham, Esther, Moses, and different prophets might have looked like and what they did throughout their experiences as written in the Bible. At the end of each section there is a Life, Faith, and Action portion which shows how God was in action during that part of Scripture, how faith can be put in action through what children learned, and an ending prayer that also applies to the Scripture that usually involves expressing thankfulness. After the Scriptures are broken down in storybook format, there is another story that goes through the Scriptures faster. At the end of both stories (the longer and shorter one), there is a Scripture Hall of Fame index which lists the major people in the Bible stories throughout this book, a description of their importance, what page(s) they can be found on in this book, and visual clues to help children locate pictures associated with them in previous pages.
I think it will be interesting for a lot of children to read this storybook Bible and it will help many of them to understand the Scriptures better. I like that it is broken down into sections so different stories of the Bible can be focused on in different timeframes. I like how children can think about what they read through the Life, Faith, and Action portions at the end of the sections and I think that might help some children learn how to start praying and some children may learn how to pray deeper through those prayers.
I really like how there was a faster story version of the Scriptures at the back of the book, in case children already know a lot of the Bible stories and want to read a summarized version. In my opinion, the Hall of Fame index is a great addition to this storybook Bible because it will help children to review what they learned about people in the Bible and interact more with the Bible stories.
