        `The Action Storybook Bible` is an interactive adventure through God's redemptive story, for kids ages 8 and younger with text written by author Catherine DeVries.

        Special content includes fifteen key episodes from God's Word which conclude with Life, Faith, and Action features that invite families to talk about how God moves in the stories. Also, a visual index to look up favorite Bible characters by their special icons. This Bible also offers a place to write who this book was presented by and to whom, and the date may be added.

        The first thing I noticed was the vivid life-like colors on each page. The people and animals were realistic. I like the easy-to-read print and the ease of telling each story. The picture of the serpent could be a bit scary for a very young child. Faith in Action section gives an activity to do. One example is to have everyone go outside, take a walk and talk about their favorite things in nature.

        To end the day there is a prayer for the parent and child to say together. I recommend this book to Christian families with children ages 8 and under.
