Each of the entries in The Children's Bible in 365 Stories includes the appropriate Scripture reference at the top, followed by Mary Batchelor's engaging text that is remarkably faithful to the original texts. Each story is about one page, and every two stories are accompanied by a full-color somewhat idealized illustration.
237 stories cover the bulk of the Old Testament; 128 cover the New Testament. Batchelor avoids the common mistake of moralizing, instead presenting events as they happened. This is probably best for ages 4-7, or any young child who simply needs a good overview of the narrative arc of Scripture before delving into it on their own.
