About the book:

Sure to be a family favorite.


You can purchase The Candle Bible for Kids, Toddler Edition at Kregel.


My Opinion:


This endearing Bible is perfect for those little hands who want their own Bibles, but can’t yet handle one without tearing the pages or the heaviness.  It’s small enough to fit in mom’s purse (at 5 X 6.5 inches) or to carry on it’s own and make any child feel special with their own Bible.  While it’s not real Scripture all the stories from Creation to God feeds Elijah to John baptizes Jesus to Jesus returns to His Father and others are written without taking away from or adding to Scripture.  The stories are simply told, so that even the littlest of His flock can understand the timeless Truths that will become treasures as they grow.


The beautiful and full colored illustrations keeps the child engaged and entertained as the stories are read and the hardy, padded hardcover will stand up to even the liveliest of children.  A  dedication page is included so that it can be a reminder of those wanting to pass on a godly heritage to a friend’s child or a relative’s child.  I will note for those who wonder the Lord’s Prayer that is included in this edition comes from The Good News Bible published by The Bible Societies/HaperCollins, however while I do enjoy the thous and thys of the KJV this one is simpler but still as meaningful, for younger children who may have a harder time understanding a more complex older English version.
