BookReview 101 Bible Adventures: The Quest For the Truth by Livingstone, Ed. Pub. Concepts and Tyndale
This book is full of Bible stories, such as when God caused the flood, the miracle of feeding five thousand people, and the Last Supper. You are actually reading from the Bible, although it doesn't seem like it. There are no verse numbers. I think this is good for kids, it makes it flow more like a story. The pages of this book look like a cartoony old journal. The translation used for the Bible is the New Living Translation.

Each story has the following:

What's Up - this is a summary of what Bible story is being read.
Action Adventure - the Bible story, it has the chapter reference at the beginning so you know where it's from
Key Verse - a Bible verse that relates to the story.
Cartoon - a visual of what the story is about.
Now What? - this explains how the story relates to us and what we can do with it.

I think any kid would like this book. They will learn the truth of the Bible as it is told in story form. It's not just reading black and white pages, which can be hard for children to enjoy. The pages have varying shades of brown and blue. This makes it more interesting for the eye to read. I would recommend this book for any parent to buy for their child. It is a fun way to learn about the Bible.

Coming from a kid:
After I wrote my review I asked my 10 year old daughter to read one story and gave me her thoughts. She said the cartoon is scary, the people look freaky. The blue print in What's up?  is hard to read. She said she liked how What's Up? tells you about the story before you read the full story. She liked that there are no small numbers (the verse numbers) in the story - they are annoying. She said it's a good size print to read. She thinks she could read this book everyday.

I received a free copy of this book from Tyndale House Publishers for my honest review.
