Reviews - What do our customers think?
Surprised by how much my kids like this book and cd...  Feb 28, 2010
I like this set. My kids love it. Hence the 5 stars. My 6 year old daughter asked me, "When are you going to order the other ones, Mommy?" I agree with the other reviewer that the pictures are for older children. But, not that much older. My girls are 4 and 6 and they didn't make any comments to me about being concerned about the crucifixion. The blood is depicted on Jesus' body while he is on the cross. I looked up my other children's Bibles to see what they did. Some showed what happened more graphically and others didn't. The Big Picture Bible showed Jesus being beaten with blood across his back, but not Jesus on the cross. My daughters didn't comment on the blood, but my oldest daughter did ask me about Skull Hill. She told me that he was crucified at Golgotha. "Skull Hill" is another name for Golgotha.

I think this set is appropriate for 5-7 year olds (maybe 4 year olds who have older siblings). I like the recording on the cd and it is nice that when the reader asks a question that she allows time for children to share their answers. The illustrations are not my favorite style (I am very old fashioned), but my girls did like them. There are also two songs at the end of the cd that are good recordings.

If you are looking for the Easter story for younger children (2-4 yrs), I'd recommend Volume 2 of the Read Aloud Bible Stories by Ella Lindvall. The Easter story is the last story in it and I think it is very biblical and very appropriate for younger children. But, for children 5-7 yrs, I like this set!
Only for older children  Apr 2, 2009
My parents bought this for my three year old for Easter. It is a very descriptive telling of the story of Easter. The illustrations are not really ones that will appeal to young children. They are also very bloody. My husband and I realize that the story of the crucifixion is ugly and bloody and violent, but it is a bit too descriptive for a young child. The illustrations include glimpses of Jesus' bloody forehead under his crown of thorns, the bloody stripes on Jesus' back from lashings, and very easily seen nails in his hands and feet.

This may be perfectly appropriate for a child who is much older, but I review this book as the mother of a toddler.
