Christian kids need to be made familiar with the content of the Bible from their earliest years, but most young readers can't manage reading the biblical narrative on their own right off. The Eager Reader Bible attempts to solve that problem by distilling the salient stories of Scripture into easy-to-read 4-page stories for beginning readers (ages 4-8).
At the beginning of each story is a title and the passage where the original can be found. Stories generally cover one chapter, though some cover as many as four. Each page has a full-color cartoony illustration, and there are two comprehension/critical thinking questions in each story that help kids internalize the content.
54 stories cover the Old Testament, with 52 stories drawn from the New Testament. The Old Testament stories are generally of the David and Goliath variety, while almost all the New Testament stories are taken from the life and parables of Christ. This is a good way to get kids familiar with the major stories of the Bible while honing their reading skills, though these stories tend to be reductionistic and to lack the insight into God's character the originals carry.
