    This is a great resource to use with children!  It is entertaining, interactive and all at the same time, children are learning! 

  • We love having the freedom to provide numerous avenues for our children to learn God’s word. Obviously, we want them to grow to read and love the Bible. But it is so helpful when you have young or struggling readers to have alternate styles that are attention grabbing and appealing. So when I had the opportunity to review the new Action Storybook Bible, I wanted in!

  • Whoa! You are in for a special treat, as Bible stories jump off the pages of The Action Storybook Bible! Illustrations are bold, bright and contemporary and will grab and hold the attention of any age reader. A great way to “fire up” new interest in your children.

  • The Action Storybook Bible was a great read for me and my son (9). It was exciting, fun, and the illustrations were bright and wonderfully done. My son, Nate enjoyed reading taking turns reading to me as we covered the 15 Bible stories in this book. He found the text easy to read and loved how he could see the stories come to life on the pages.

  • This is a good Bible for preschool and young elementary age readers. The illustrations are great and the small amount of text is good for beginning readers and families with young children.

  • With the digital age of books I have to admit that I find it hard to follow a book on at tablet. However, my kids don’t have any problems in with reading books on the tablet. They eat them up. I was quite excited to receive this for my son. I downloaded it for him on his tablet and on my computer for me to look at.
    First off I’m enthralled with the colorful graphics of the The Action Storybook Bible. The details in this Bible are quite remarkable. My son and I spent a lot of time exploring the graphics after we read the Bible stories.

  • The Action Storybook Bible is one of those Bibles that is designed to keep kiddos engaged and coming back for more.

    The Action Storybook Bible is a lovely illustrated book for children filled with stories of the bible. It would be a great book to give to a child or to a new Christian of any age. The illustrations bring the stories of The Bible alive. This is a fabulous tool for introducing The Bible.

  • My son is really enjoying this book! This is not a replacement for the Bible, but more like a Bible storybook! They say that it is great for ages 8 and under, but I am enjoying it right along with my 11 year old son!

  • My children, ages 2,4, and 6 all truly enjoyed reading from The Action Storybook Bible. My little superheroes were enamored by the beautiful images and the simple retellings of each story. If your child is into Super Heroes and Graphic Novels, I’d say this is a great Storybook Bible in which to invest. The suggested age range is 8 years old and under. My 6 year and 4 year old were captivated. My youngest (age 2) was not as interested but kept coming back to listen.

  • Though I’ve listened to the Action Bible, reading the pages on The Action Storybook Bible was a different experience. It looks very much like a graphic novel, which are so popular with kids right now. Each page has a short but powerful section of text that relates to the pictures. I also liked the Life, Faith, Action page at the end of each story. This short guide for parents and children helps to make the Bible story applicable in today’s society. I’m excited to read this book with my kids.

  • I LOVE this so much! The creators of The Action Bible include beautiful and fantastic artwork that goes along with the stories that they highlighted. Perfect for families and/or those who work with children to use as an interactive tool.

  • 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 think the Action Storybook Bible is a perfect step up from our Jesus Storybook Bible for my six-year-old, and the perfect graphic novel introduction for my seven-almost-eight-year-old.

    There is something special about seeing illustrations beside well known and loved Bible stories. It adds something to the story. I was moved by the story of Joseph, seeing him on the selling block with chains on his neck and wrists really helped me picture the story in a new way and made it feel much more real. The artwork is very well done and the stories are written in an easy to understand format. Definitely recommended!

  • A great book to have for your children. It was a wonderful experience to read with my three year old son. He loved how the graphics were and loved each of the stories.

  • I was very pleased to find that this format of the Bible is a great way to engage children ages 8-11 in the big pictures of Scripture – God redeeming a sinful people to Himself through His one and only Son, Jesus Christ. The artistry is exceptional and this Bible reads like an actual comic.
    Each story is the perfect length for kids and is written in such a way that they will grasp what is happening.

  • The Action Storybook Bible was a huge hit with my two youngest daughters, ages 5 years and 8 years. It is set up similar to a comic book, with many fun and beautiful illustrations. The text is limited, which is great for my 8 year old, who feels like she can sit down and read the stories to her younger sister.

  • This is a book that will appeal to readers of all ages; not just kids but adults as well, especially comic book enthusiasts.  This storybook bible represents a wonderful outreach opportunity to reach more people than ever in spreading the gospel message. 

  • SK Bell says:

    My brother was a major comic book aficionado growing up and I know this would have without a doubt been his favorite book of Bible stories had it been around when we were kids. I think most children (probably 4+) would find it interesting, but this is an especially excellent version for kids who have an interest in comic books!

  • For younger children around 3-5, the pictures in this book and the streamlined version of the Biblical narratives are suitable for instruction. And for older children, the images would be helpful in catching their attention and allowing them to visualize the story.

  • The illustrations immediately drew my son’s into the story. Reading this book to them held their attention and they stopped to make numerous observations about the settings, the characters, and what is happening. I read the bio of the illustrator and he has worked on numerous comic books. The style is certainly very appealing to two little boys who love superheroes!
