Teach it to your children.  Jun 25, 2007
Great childrens bible! I highly recommend it. Makes the stories understandable without losing depth of meaning.
Better title would be "The Jewish Bible for *Christian* children"  May 21, 2006
Written from a christian perpective. Several references to Jesus, and the "Old testament" not only in the introduction - examples - the patriarchs live 1500 years before Jesus. There is a painting depicting Jesus being circumcised (as stated in the caption. Other inaccuracies such as the hebrew letters "yod, hei vav, hei" is usually written as "Yahweh" - um, only Jehovahs wittnesses people! One story suggests a sacrifice of a young woman which would never have been permitted. (Judges 11) Torah commentary teaches she lived in seculsion (the sacrafice being she never married or had children)
I gave this 2 stars because most of the book is OK, but Jewish parents should be aware of these flaws. Would be an OK choice for a Christian child, though the take on Judges 11 is disturbing.
Annoyingly written from a Christian perspective, but...  Oct 31, 2005
I read the others Readers' Reviews, and was also taken aback by the stated Christian perspective in a book supposedly geared towards Jewish families. I had a chance to flip through this book, however, and while the Christian perspective is annoying (especially for someone trying to raise a Jewish child in a town where we are a minority), the illustrations, maps and charts somewhat redeem the few Christian references in the text. In typical DK fashion, this book's annotations provide an good overview of the Tanakh, and tell the stories in ways that are neither overly simplified nor overly florid, as found in many biblical texts written for young people. A parent could choose to point out to the child that we live in a world with many religions, and that there are other religions whose roots share a common history with ours. I do agreed, however, that it is unfortunate to find such references in a purportedly "Jewish" book.

For those who are looking for children's bible stories a little more grounded in the Judaic perspective, I recommend the Sheryl Prenzlau _The Jewish Children's Bible_ series, presented in five separate books (Genesis, Exodus, Leviticus. Numbers & Deuteronomy), but which also include the related Midrashim, and a Hagagadah, and the books of Ester, Ruth, and Jonah. Another good introductory book would be _A Child's Garden of Torah_ by Alfred J. Kotlach, which my daughter enjoys reading. Unfortunately, none of these books provide the excellent maps and charts of the DK book, so flawed as it may be, I will probably end up buying this book.
Not for Jewish children!  Mar 24, 2004
I thought about buying this book for my daughter until I read the introduction. The introduction is definitely written from a Christian perspective, and I don't feel that it is appropriate for teaching a Jewish child about the Tanach. Obviously, Jews don't recognize the New Testament, but the introduction states that the Bible is divided into the Old Testament and New Testament. As another reviewer noted, such references to Christian beliefs would be proper for a book on comparative religion, but not in a book purporting to teach the Hebrew Bible to Jewish children. My advice to Jewish parents: look elsewhere.
A great book for both Jewish and non-Jewish kids  Dec 13, 2003
This book contains beautiful retellings of stories from the Hebrew bible, with photos of archaeological objects that match the stories and other relevant illustrations and maps on the margins on each page. This is one of the favorite books at my kids' Hebrew Day School library. The only references to Jesus in the book are in the introduction, which states that these are the stories that Jesus would have read (undeniably true, unless you think Jesus was fictional), and that Christians have two Bibles, the Old Testament and the New Testament, and the stories in the New Testament concern Jesus (also undeniably true). Why anyone would think that the book or the book title is "misleading" in some way because of these innocuous references is unclear. Highly recommended for all kids.
