Once Upon a Time Bible and Storybook Bible


I have have had the privilege to read and introduce my kids to the Once Upon a Time Bible and Storybook Bible. My 3 year old preferred the storybook the best and my 6 year old loved the Bible.

The storybook Bible is filled with colorful pictures and the wonderful stories of the Bible that we have all heard and love. Every story begins with Once Upon A Time and ends with a Happily Ever After ending. I truly enjoyed reading the storybook to my sons. I would recommend the Storybook Bible to younger children who are just learning about the Bible but children of all ages will benefit from it and enjoy it.
The Once Upon A Time Bible is in the New International Readers Version (NIrV). There are several pictures throughout where it tells about specific stories. This sparked my sons interest because it's not just all words and reading. It helped him to visualize what is happening, which I find crucial in studying the Bible. Kids are visual beings and if they can see it or visualize it, it is more real for them so they can better understand what they are reading. I would recommend the Once Upon a  Time Bible to children who are able to read.

Official Website:

• 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.
• The art will captivate Disney lovers with similar looking characters and color palettes
• Zonderkidz wanted to capture fans of this genre, but introduce young children to the word of God, and introduce them to the great characters of the Bible. It’s important to note that this brand serves to resound the theme that the Bible is NOT a fairy tale, but every great Bible story happened once upon a time. The Bible is the ultimate Happily Ever After 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 utilizes even more of the captivating art style and beautiful narrative to tell the major stories of the Bible (http://www.zondervan.com/once-upon-a-time-storybook-bible) , and the Holy Bible (http://www.zondervan.com/nirv-once-upon-a-time-holy-bible-hardcover & (http://www.zondervan.com/nirv-once-upon-a-time-holy-bible-imitation-leather) includes the full-text of the bestselling New International Reader’s Version (NIrV) translation, and highlights 6 great stories of the Bible in full-color tip-in pages.  (there will be 6 stories, and each story is told on 4 illustrated pages.)

The colorful pictures really get his attention and the stories of the Bible always intrigue him. Even my 6 year old son has enjoyed it. I think it is more appealing to any child under the age of 7, although the content is for anyone of any age! It's an amazing way to teach them the important stories of the Bible. And it keeps it interesting for them so there attention does not wander. It is loaded with wonderful encouragement for young ones and I would highly recommend it to anyone who wants their toddler or young child to have a Bible of their own.

When Jesus Was a Green-Eyed Brunette: GIVEAWAY!!

By: Melissa Baker



When Jesus was a Green-Eyed Brunette is a great book. I wasn't too sure if I would enjoy reading this book to be honest- the title kind of threw me off a bit. But as I began to read and was really able to dive in, I was pleasantly surprised. This book reminds us how to love people like God does. The author includes stories in the book that really hit home and are very relatable. There are many refreshing Biblical truths in these stories. Some will make you giggle, and some might even bring a few tears. If you read this book, it will leave you humbly inspired and you will not be disappointed. I would highly recommend this book to anyone who wants to get back to the basics...Jesus!


About the Book:
    When Jesus Was a Green-Eyed Brunette weaves heartwarming and miraculous stories of Jesus showing up in ordinary people, revealing that He knows us and is fully present in our everyday circumstances, especially in our difficulties. Those hurting and weary from worn-out religion are longing for a fresh touch from the living Jesus. Best-selling author Max Davis challenges us to do more than simply receive God’s grace—we need to allow grace to soften, change, and shape us. As you read this book you will laugh, cry, and come face-to-face with the living Jesus, much like Davis did, when he found Him living in a green-eyed brunette. As Davis puts it, “Jesus is very much alive today and still does incredible things—sometimes supernatural things—through us!”
    208 pgs.

About the Author:
    Max Davis is the author of over 20 published books and has been featured in USA Today and Publishers Weekly and has appeared on The Today Show and The 700 Club. He holds degrees in Journalism and Biblical Studies and is a much sought-after speaker for churches and organizations worldwide. He and his wife, Alanna, live on 50 beautiful acres in Greenwell Springs, Louisiana.

Bible Journaling Kit Giveaway!

By: Melissa Baker


Have you ever tried a Bible Journaling Kit while reading your Bible? I had never tried it before and I recently had the opportunity to review a journaling kit, so I thought I would give it a try. These journaling kits are so fun! They come with everything you need to use your creativity while reading and studying God's word. I find that if you can see something visually, you usually can understand it better. Whether you are writing out a prayer, drawing or illustrating something you have read, or simply just adding art and color to your Bible, journaling is a great tool for you to use. 
I am not a very creative person, and I cannot draw anything but stick figures. But something about journaling as I read my Bible brings life to the passage that I am reading. I never thought I would enjoy doing it, however, I have come to really like it. If you have not tried Bible Journaling, I strongly encourage you to try it! 


About the Product:
Create a work of art on the pages of your favorite Bible. Draw, color, or journal your thoughts, dreams, and prayers. Highlight your favorite verses or the encouragements that speak to your heart with pencils, stickers, and tabs. Kit includes:
·         4 sheets of word stickers
·         4 sheets of alphabet stickers
·         24 tab stickers
·         8 colored pencil twists
·         1 journaling pen
·         1 pouch with adjustable strap to fit Bibles of all sizes
·         1 ruled page protector mat with tracing line

Christmas Love Letters From God- Review and Giveaway!


Christmas Love Letters from God has several Bible stories your child will love! Each story includes the story itself,  a poem, a scripture and ends with a letter from God, personally directed to the reader. The illustrations are beautiful and really helps tell the story. My son loved this book and was excited to read a letter from God, just for him. This book was a great addition to the Christmas season!

About the Book:
Written for children ages four to eight, Christmas Love Letters from God cleverly combines both prose and poetry as the story of Jesus’ birth unfolds. The book includes seven stories, beginning with Isaiah’s prophecy and ending with the visit of the wise men. Following each story, the child will find his or her own letter from God, folded into a small envelope attached to the page. Each letter begins with a space in which to write the child’s name, so each one can be specially addressed to the child.
Written as if God is speaking, each personalized message gives the young reader a sense of wonder as they discover anew the Christmas holiday and the birth of Jesus. A very special Bible verse, entitled God’s Perfect Promise, also accompanies each story and letter as God’s personal words of love, promise, and hope.
