9781859858677The Candle Classic Bible
The art of teaching children is all about intentionally simplifying this complex world into building blocks that they can understand and build upon other things they know.  The complexities of the bible are no exception, and in order to teach a toddler the stories and principles it contains, it has to be simplified!
I have really loved the Candle Books I’ve gotten to review from Kregel Publications.  They have all been child-friendly, mostly true to what I believe (or close enough that I can leave out a statement of interpretation that I don’t feel is accurate), displayed in a visually friendly and attractive way, and something I’m happy to hold on to as a means to educate my children and teach them about this beautiful world and its wonderful Heavenly Father.
 …
The Candle Classic Bible goes right alongside my other favorites as a fantastic teaching tool.  This is the most extensive simplified book in our collection, and it is certainly meant to be stretched out among several weeks or even months of reading.  It contains 256 marbled pages with a clean table of contents grouped into subject headings.  Each chapter is condensed into roughly a partial column or two of text and interspersed with pictures on almost every page.
I have really enjoyed reading this Bible alongside my kids!  I too forget the stories after not having read them in awhile, and getting a refresher in a simplified format with pictures was just delightful.  I even used it as a reference when I wanted to look up the basics of a bible story and get the names and places down quickly.
The text isn’t so watered down that everything sounds the same, nor is it too wordy or fluffy for a youngen to understand.  I would recommend this for anyone in grade school as a great beginner’s bible.  It is an appealing book to pull out every night, what with the chapters condensed into just the right amount of text.  The hardbound cover and beautiful illustrations make it a beautiful addition to the family room bookcase.  We’re happy to add this to our family’s scripture study literature!

Reading from the scriptures every night as a family is a priority in our household, but try to get a 2-year old to sit through anything more than a verse of fancy vocabulary, and you start to wonder what the point is of trying at all.  I completely understand the appeal of simplified and illustrated bible stories for children, and this toddler edition Candle Bible is terrific.

To begin with, this book is very kid-friendly in size and material.  It is roughly 5″ by 7″ in size, with a hard but padded cover.  The pages are glossy and easy to turn with rounded corners.

It contains 36 well-known stories from the Bible.  I think the publishers selected a good collection of common bible stories that children will be able to remember and understand.  The wording is simplified, but interesting, with just the right amount of words per page to keep a toddler’s attention.

I found the artwork delightful!  Every page was colorful, friendly, and void of busy distractions.  I almost looked forward to the next story just to see how the illustrator depicted the next bible story hero or heroine.  I especially loved the sweet and kind faces of Mary, Joseph, and the baby Jesus as we read our son the Christmas story.

It took us several days to read through it, but after a few stories, it became a favorite and “Rocket” would go find it off the shelf and bring it over for family scripture time.  At 160 pages, I think it is the perfect length and size to enjoy with your child for many nights as a bedtime favorite.  I’m looking forward to enjoying this again and again with my son, and to sharing this toddler bible with all of our toddlers to come!
