I was asked to look at this new Bible and Bible storybook for younger readers and I have been pleasantly surprised. The Once Upon a Time Bible is a great way to show kids "The Bible is not a fairy tale. Every great story happened once upon a time." So the editors are showing how the stories are true but it is presented with pictures that show fairytale settings. I think girls, especially, will love it. It is printed in the New International Reader's Version and the pictures throughout really make it attractive to our younger readers.
The Once Upon a Time Storybook Bible takes many of the popular Bible stories and begins each with "Once Upon a Time". They impress upon children in the opening that all of the stories are true but that they are going to begin as all good stories do with "Once Upon a Time." It's creative and fun - and maybe will open up new avenues to discuss after you read the familiar stories with your little ones.
