“The Bible is not a fairy tale. Every great story happened once upon a time.” – Once Upon a Time Storybook Bible.
With the popularity of fairy tales and Disney animation, and especially with the new release of Disney’s live action Beauty and the Beast on March 17, Zonderkidz wanted to publish a storybook Bible and full -text Bible (Holy Bible offered in hardcover, and pink leathersoft editions) that would resonate with children and families who loved those types of movies, and loved reading a great story.
What Christian parent doesn’t want to tie in Bible learning fun with what their kids already love, but also have the opportunity to teach them that the real heroes and stories of our faith come straight from God’s Word.
The Storybook Bible is filled with 33 stories from the Bible.
Easter is fast approaching and to me it is important to teach Raelynn the real reason for Easter. At only 2.5 years old somethings are a bit much for her to understand so I love that there are different versions of the Bible that can help me in teaching her. Raelynn has really gotten into listening to me tell her fairy tales so It was great to be able to read her true stories that are captivating.
I really like that both of these books are durable, the hard covers are great especially for little hands and will last for a long time at our house. These are also great sizes she can carry each of them well and the Storytime Bible has large pages with beautifully displayed illustrations throughout to keep her attention.
I really like that the Once upon a time Holy Bible is written in New International Reader's version, I believe that this makes reading the Bible with your children easier as it is easier for them to comprehend. I love that the Holy Bible included illustrations as well. I do however, wish that the print in this one was a bit larger so that it would be easier to read.
Raelynn's favorite hands down was the Storytime Bible, the stories were shorter and the fact that they began with Once upon a time really got her excited. I love this concept as long as we as parents make sure to remind them that these stories are true compared to fairy tales.
I recommend you adding both of these to your children's library if you haven't already.
