""One Year Bible for Children" is an illustrated Bible for young children (ages 5-8). It's designed to be read to the child and perhaps later read by the child.

The daily readings are about 1 page long and each has a date (January 1, etc.) for when it's to be read. I'd suggest starting at "January 1st" even if that's not when you start reading the book. The selections follow the narrative portions of the Bible from Genesis to Revelation with excerpts from the Psalms and some of the New Testament letters. Not all of the narrative in the Bible is covered, but it does cover more than I've generally seen in children's Bibles and it comes across as an ongoing story rather than stories taken out of context.

The text is a simplified vocabulary version of the actual Bible. You couldn't use this to look up specific verses, but I'd feel comfortable using this as a "real Bible reading" for young children. The commentary is kept out of the main text except when used to explain an event that might confuse children.

At the bottom of each reading, there are questions to see if the child has been paying attention and comments about what we learn from the passage. I like that these comments usually pointed out what we learned about God rather than using the story solely as a moral lesson. Also included is a prompt to think of ways to apply what we learned from the reading.

The full-color illustrations look like the cover and accurately portray the time period (except for the scarcity of brown- or black-skinned people). There is an illustration every two or three pages. Not every daily reading has a picture, but there are plenty of pictures.

Overall, I'd highly recommend this Bible as a read-to-them children's Bible.

"Excellent first bible for kids who are a little older, 8 or 9. My daughter loves it and reads from it all the time." said.

"Good messages for children or adults, great photos. Also available in Spanish..." said.

"The best book you can read for your child !!!My son always excited to hear the story every night. Highly recommended for young heart." said.

"This is a wonderful and beautifully illustrated book. Very suitable for children and families." said.

"I am learning the Bible along with my young child. She is 7 and we have graduated to this Bible. We are aiming for doing one lesson a night. Just enough detail for someone her age, and really enough for me too at this point in my studies! Each story is one or two pages, but the pictures take up about half of each page. Not too long for those with short attention spans, like my 7 year old, and her ADD mother. Beautiful Illustrations. Easy to follow text. LOVE the short questions and the end of each story. It makes sure you understand and think about what you just read. If you don't remember the answers, it's simple to just go back and scan the text for it. The questions are a great tool to make sure your child has actually listened to what you just read. It's good for discussion and a great tool to make sure you "get it". There are also questions about what would you do or think in those situations... ones to which there is no right or wrong answer, but great for pondering and discussing yours and your child's thoughts." said.

"A very good story Bible with helpful application questions. A good buy. One slight irritation I have is some light editing to "aid" storyline, I understand why this happens however I'm all for leaving the biblical text as close as possible to the words of Scripture- but on the whole a good buy" said.
