The Big Picture Story Bible presents this remarkable true story. Simple words and striking illustrations unfold the storyline of God’s Word from Genesis to Revelation. All ages will enjoy this exciting discovery of a God who keeps his big promise.”
The first thing I noticed about this book is that it should be renamed to The HUGE Picture Story Bible. But I get the title as it is “The Big Picture” because it is the big picture. But this book is huge. I am wandering how tiny hands might handle this book with out dropping and ripping a page. But I am sure that won’t happen.
The second thing I noticed and I like most about the book is the illustrations. I have never seen pictures designed in this way. The faces are drawn in such a manner I have not seen on any other character before. I just love them. They really stand out as different. The colors are vibrant and almost look like they are “spray painted” on only crisper with fine outlines. Maybe its watercolor paints! They are just really neat. I wish I could explain them better.
The next thing I want to tell you about is the stories and how they are written. The stories are simple, informative, thought provoking (questions for you little ones to ponder and answer), interesting, and enjoyable. I think that covers it all. Each “story/chapter” is labeled as “part” as in part 1, part 2, part 12, and so on.
The book ends with John being shown the future and this quote from page 450:
“God’s forever people will one day live in God’s forever place under God’s forever rule.”
God’s people WILL live in HEAVEN to worship with the Angels for eternity!
Halleluiah! Praise the Lord!
I think this is a great book for young children. My 10yo daughter likes it, but it’s too simple for the 12yo daughter.
It’s clear and easy to read. The words are a good “big” size for little eyes learning to read.
I will have to give this book 5 “BIG” stars!
