VeggieTales Bible

In the VeggieTales Bible, Bob the Tomato, Larry the Cucumber, and all their VeggieTales friends invite children to join them and get to know the Bible. In this full-text New International Reader’s Version (NIrV) Bible, each feature is specially designed to help children understand and love God’s Word.

My Review:
What a joy for any fan of VeggieTales!

There are so many creative ideas: There are eight different stories presented in cartoon-like pictures. At the end of each story, the location--chapter and page number--are listed to motivate the child to further explore. Each book of the Bible begins with an introduction. Over 100 verses are sectioned off and colored soft blue to encourage memorization. There's a Table of Contents, a Dictionary, and an index to Veggie Values.

One negative must be mentioned. The print is uncomfortably small for me; most children are used to a larger font. However, the entire Bible is presented, which makes for a hefty book.

This hardbound, colorful Bible should please any child 6-10.

Thank you to Zondervan for my copy.
