Although “Once Upon a Time” is how many fairytales begin, it is also a way to begin telling the story of many happenings in the Bible. The only difference is we know the stories in the Bible are true and actually happened “once upon a time”.
The Once Upon a Time Holy Bible and Once Upon a Time Storybook Bible are a beautifully illustrated book set that will introduce young children to some of the most memorable stories in
the Bible. The set will grow with your child into their elementary age years. Both books are colorful and beautifully illustrated with images that will appeal to many children, especially those who have a strong attraction to Disney films.
Through the illustrations of Omar Aranda, the Once Upon a Time Storybook Bible comes alive telling the stories of Hannah’s Prayer, Jonah and the Big Fish, Jesus is Baptized, The Blind Man, Lazarus, Wake Up and more. The vivid images in the book will keep the attention of little children as they learn more about the people and occurrences in the Bible. The Once Upon a Time Holy Bible is just that, a Bible. It also has nicely illustrated pictures that appear on full color and highlighting six “great stories of the Bible.”As your child grows and continues to want to learn more about God, having their own NIrV Bible that elaborates on the stories that were read to them from the storybook will become a great resource. If you have children of multiple ages, you could also use the book set together. Read a chapter in the storybook with your children and then find the full story in the Holy Bible to give more insight into the story. Both books make for great read-alouds during the day or as part of your story time before bed.
It is recognized the stories in the Bible are not meant for entertainment. The Once Upon a Time Holy Bible and Once Upon a Time Storybook Bible take a different approach to introducing children to God’s word. Although a storybook about God may not be the traditional way to introduce children to Him, it is often one that is more affective for some contemporary children. For parents who prefer to introduce their children to God in a more traditional manner, the Once Upon a Time Holy Bible may be another answer. Either way Zondervan has got you covered as it helps you tell the “ ultimate Happily Ever After story!”
