Adventure Bible Storybook Deluxe Edition

This Deluxe Edition includes a hard cover version of the Adventure Bible Storybook as well as two CD's that slide into a sturdy cardboard folder.  Both come packaged in a hard storage case.

This Adventure Bible Storybook contains most of the most loved and known classical passages of the Bible in a story format.  So if you're looking for a Bible that holds closer to the text, this isn't it.  There are liberties taken and details added.  However, the stories are well-told and beautifully illustrated.  This Bible Storybook contains over 50 stories, including excerpts from Psalms and Proverbs, a rarity in children's bibles.  The CD's follow along with different voices for the characters as well as music/effects to enhance the story.  They were a selling point for me as my kids can follow along, even when they can't read every word.

Each story also includes an "Adventure Discovery" with a few additional story details.  With some of them, there's also a Biblical reference for learning more.  "Words to Treasure" can be found with each story as well, highlighting a verse to memorize.  

While I'd hoped the stories would have more closely followed the Biblical text, overall this was a good addition to our library and a good introduction to the Adventure Bible series.
