6 Classic Bible Storybooks Your Kids Will Love


Some of my very earliest memories include rushing into the playroom to grab my fancy Bible for church. My little red My First Bible in Pictures with its blue handle always made me feel so special, like I had a purse or a Bible case like a grown-up. I loved the cheerful little girl on the cover with her rosy cheeks, and I knew she was looking up at Jesus.

When I was a little older, I loved to spend time looking at one of my big, old Bible storybooks. I liked that it was big and heavy, and it made me feel grown up to have a Bible just for me with such classic artwork. It helped me take the stories more seriously. I still loved my Bibles that were more playful, but something about the realistic illustrations drove home that these stories were about people who actually lived.

Tyndale’s 50th Anniversary: Great Moments in Tyndale History

This photo was taken in 1971 with Dr. Taylor presenting the 1st copy of The Living Bible to Billy Graham at the Oakland-Alameda County Crusade.

The significance of presenting TLB to Dr. Graham is that in the Fall of 1963, Billy Graham used the paperback edition of Living Letters as a television premium for his crusades. In all, more than 600,000 copies of Living Letters were sent to viewers. In the years that followed, the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association used hundreds of thousands of each of the subsequent books in the Living series. His endorsement and publicity significantly launched Living Letters and the whole concept of a paraphrased Bible.
