Version: New International Reader's Version (NIrV)

  • With the popularity of fairy tales and Disney animation, and especially with the new release of Disney’s live action Beauty and the Beast on March 17, Zonderkidz wanted to publish a storybook Bible and full -text Bible (Holy Bible offered in hardcover, and pink leathersoft editions) that would resonate with children and families who loved those types of movies, and loved reading a great story.
  • The art will captivate Disney lovers with similar looking characters and color palettes
  • Zonderkidz wanted to capture fans of this genre, but introduce young children to the word of God, and introduce them to the great characters of the Bible. It’s important to note that this brand serves to resound the theme that the Bible is NOT a fairy tale, but every great Bible story happened once upon a time. The Bible is the ultimate Happily Ever After story!
  • What Christian parent doesn’t want to tie in Bible learning fun with what their kids already love, but also have the opportunity to teach them that the real heroes and stories of our faith come straight from God’s Word.

The Storybook Bible utilizes even more of the captivating art style and beautiful narrative to tell the major stories of the Bible, and the Holy Bible (Click here for the imitation leather version) includes the full-text of the bestselling New International Reader’s Version (NIrV) translation, and highlights 6 great stories of the Bible in full-color tip-in pages.  (there will be 6 stories, and each story is told on 4 illustrated pages.)


Once Upon a Time Storybook Bible

What a great storybook to share the Bible with the next generation? As fairy tales and "happily ever after" stories trends forward, many can't relate it to the truth of the Bible. Many also don't see the connection of "happily ever afters" with the Bible, therefore opting to read storybooks rather than the Bible stories to kids. Once Upon a Time Storybook Bible takes the many true stories of the Bible and present it in a colorful and easy to understand way for parents and kids. A great large format hardcover book, it's a great size to share over on the bed or on the couch. Parents and kids will be able to enjoy pre-selected stories from the Bible, read together and chat more able the "happily ever after" section at the end of each story. A great way to share the Bible with kids, as well as have them envision with the realistic and beautiful illustrations. A great storybook for every kids' library. This is a must have if you want to start the Bible with kids at a young age.

Once Upon a Time Holy Bible

The Once Upon a Time Holy Bible will sure to be a favorite among little girls, as well as parents or friends that want to gift one to a little girl. Love the tagline on the front cover, "The Bible is not a fairy tale. Every great story happened once upon a time." 

A basic Bible, which includes all the books, but also a number of full color pages with pretty illustrations to highlight some of the many popular stories. In the New International Reader's Version (NIrV), it's bound to be easy to understand for the youngsters. Plus, there's a small dictionary for certain words and terms in the back. An alphabetical list of Bible stories are also in the back for a quick reference. In all, a great Bible I'm thrilled to have reviewed and will be a wonderful gift for a little girl in my life!
