A well-illustrated Bible for children: My review of God Helps Me Bible by Juliet David and Clare Caddy @KregelBooks

The God Helps Me Bible is a Bible for young children that features 25 Bible Stories that have been uniquely retold to capture how God helped the main character in the story. The Bible can either be read cover to cover, or it also has a handy table of Contents that will allow you to quickly find the popular story or character you want to read about. The book itself features a sturdy spiral binding that will survive much wear and tear.

I quite enjoyed the well-written stories captured in the God Helps Me Bible, and I absolutely loved the illustrations that bring each story to life. Almost all of my children's favourites are included, such as Noah and the Ark, the story of Moses, David and Goliath, or the story of Queen Esther. I appreciated how each story contained the reference to which Bible passage the story is taken from, and the stories are brief enough to capture the attention of the average toddler. My one disappointment is that the story of Jesus dying on the cross is missing, something my girls actually pointed out to me. As that is truly the most amazing way God helped us in saving our souls, I would have liked to have seen this story included. However, overall I am sure this is a Bible your children will enjoy, and I give it a solid recommendation and rating of 4 out of 5 stars.
