A Story Bible for Every Reader
We wouldn’t wait until a child understands big concepts to read books about friendship, love, or feelings – so why wait to start reading the Bible to them? We know that each child (and adult!) has a different learning style – the way they naturally prefer to absorb information. When we help children use the style that is most comfortable and automatic for them, they better remember what they learn and they enjoy the experience of learning much more.
Thus, our goal to publish a Story Bible for every kind of reader, from birth on up. Click on the covers below to read more about each Bible’s art style, language choices, and see a sample.

The Frolic Preschool Bible
For the Emerging Reader
For the Bookworm
Our Story Bibles focus on the different ways kids experience stories. Some children love to be read to, saying “Again!” after hearing their favorite stories. Others may read books on their own. Others enjoy retelling stories in their own words, pictures, and colors. Still others look for action and dialogue to help them understand a story. Our writers are a team of experts in child development, early literacy, education, and faith formation. We’ve created a family of Bibles that help tell these important stories in ways that will best connect with the different kinds of readers.
