Review of Adventure Bible Handbook!

"The Adventure Bible Handbook" by Robin Schmitt & David Frees is sure to be a new favorite in your household of 7-12 year olds...at least it is in mine! The book itself actually says it's for 9-12 year olds, but if you have a good reader like my 2nd grader, they will get just as much out of it!

The book is basically a big comic book where the main characters go back in time to over 70 Bible stories! They also share important tidbits about the characters and the places they visit, which I feel make the story come to life for a child. Also included are various maps which give great examples of where the stories took place, a Bible reading guide, The Apostles' Creed, Scripture Index, Subject Index and Image Guide.

In no way do I think this book should replace a child's Bible, but I do believe that it is a fantastic way for a child to learn about God and the Bible. This book introduces a fun way of learning with colorful pictures and fun characters, that my 7 year old just loved! She has been taking this book to bed every night and reading it with daddy before bed.

I would highly recommend this to children 7-12 years of age, boy or girl. I initially wondered if it was too boy-ish for my little girl, but she quickly reassured me that she loves the book and continues to read it daily! I rate this book as 5 stars.
