About the book:
A Bible story for every day—365 of the best-loved Bible stories fully illustrated in a classic style will become favorites for children and parents alike, with each story divided into easy-to-read sections with the day, heading, and Scripture reference. Children are encouraged to spend family time together reading a new story each day.
  • Old Testament: From the Story of Creation to Isaac, from Joseph to Ruth, from Job to David, from Elisha to the Prophets.
  • New Testament: From John the Baptist to the story of Jesus, to the story of the Apostles, to John’s Vision of Heaven.
My thoughts:
I've been using the Candle Classics Bible with Connor this summer and he has really enjoyed the stories in the Bible. The stories are really short (only a few paragraphs long) and ideal for the older toddler to mid preschooler age. Connor could of easily listened to much longer stories. The pictures are large and fun to look at since they are very detailed, colorful and interesting.

My goal this summer was to start reading a story a day and while we didn't quite meet that goal many of the stories interested Connor enough to learn more and ask questions. Usually I was able to read 2-3 stories at a time with him and he always enjoyed reading them. This would be a great addition to family readings after dinner or if you are trying to start up a family devotions tradition.

Disclaimer: I was offered a copy of The Candle Classic Bible to read and review on CCB. I was not required to have a positive review and no $$ exchanged hands. Thanks for reading CCB.
