These Favorite Children’s Bibles Help Visual Learners
The sheer number of children’s bible story books offer visual learners access to Jesus in an effective way. As with all learning, it is crucial to remove barriers in order to best equip our kids to receive and process what we long to impart to them.

Favorite Toddler to Kindergarten Children’s Story Book Bibles
This favorite story book bible is a beautifully illustrated board book for younger children. The book is simple and engaging. Each page has one large letter of the alphabet along with a one line catechism-type truth from Scripture. The Biggest Story ABC Bible is perfect for the wiggly child with little attention span. The colorful pictures and the simplisity of the text makes for a quick but powerful read.
This is a new on the list and it’s already one of my favorite children’s story book bibles! Because of my son’s speech and language delays, it’s extremely important that I seek out books that support his phonological awareness. The ability to rhyme is an essential reading skill that many struggling readers don’t have. The Rhyme Bible Storybook is full of captivating illustrations and intentional wording that is highly engaging. Support your child’s developing relationship with Jesus and critical speech, language and reading skills.
The Beginner’s Bible is brightly illustrated with cartoon-like images of various biblical characters. This children’s bible does a great job covering a vast number of bible stories while using simple language. While the target audience is on the younger side, if you have an older child with speech and language delay or any other processing issues, check out this children’s bible. Simplified language is often what many children need in order to grow in their language skills.
The Big Picture Story Bible is a sweet depiction of some of the foundational stories from Scripture. The title is spot on. This children’s bible is BIG. It’s a curl-up-in-mom’s lap story book bible as it is the size of a dictionary. Besides being a little cumbersome physically, this children’s bible has it’s own spin on presenting Scripture to children. It is written in “sections” of the larger story of Scripture. For kids who are wired to move, I would recommend reading it in smaller chunks over time.
Favorite Children’s Story Book Bibles
Ages 7 & Up
After exploring the Billy Graham Library one winter afternoon, my daughter and I purchased this Bible story book. This illustrated bible does not disappoint. The images are captivating and the text is solid. Each story begins with a portion of Scripture and then continues from there. It is written in a child-friendly way so that major biblical concepts and the beauty of the Gospel shine through.
The Jesus Storybook Bible is hands down one of the most beautifully-written children’s story bibles I have ever read. It was adapted by Sarah Lloyd-Jones and illustrated by the artist Jago. The Jesus Storybook Bible is written from creation to Revelation as one cohesive story that Scripture. This cohesive narrative allows children a greater understanding of Scripture as every story points to Christ. Ms. Lloyd-Jones uses incredibly powerful language and imagery is breathtaking. Honestly, even adults will be blown away by this depiction of Scripture.
The Jesus Calling Bible Storybook is written by Sarah Young of the popular Jesus Calling series of devotionals for adults. She and illustrator Carolina Farias to created this gorgeous story bible. It’s appealing to both younger and older children. The illustrations are incredibly engaging. Each narrative in this children’s story bible, ends with a devotional written from the perspective of Jesus. Some readers have expressed concern about “putting” words into Jesus’ mouth. When I read these to my kids, I always preface these devotionals with this simple shift in language:
“This is something Jesus might say to us, you, etc…”
All in all, I think The Jesus Calling Bible Storybook is a wonderful addition to any family collection.
The Biggest Story: How the Snake Crusher Brings Us Back to the Garden is one of those children’s bibles that I would rank up there with The Jesus Storybook Bible by Sally Lloyd Jones. Quite frankly, I would describe both children’s story bibles as family story bibles because they are both that good. Kevin DeYoung does a phenomenal job of pointing to Christ retelling pivotal stories from Scripture. The illustrator, Don Clark, who also illustrated the The Biggest Story ABC bible storybook, has a unique and captivating style of art that will grab the attention of the entire family.
Comic book-lovers, artists, and basically anyone breathing will LOVE this FAVORITE children’s bible. Again, every child learns differently. Some kids are auditory, kinesthetic and almost all kids benefit from visual input. This version of Scripture is more in-depth than any children’s bible I’ve ever read. The comic illustrations are so powerful in drama and use of shading. I recommend The Action Bible for every Christian child and adult. This rendition of the bible is that good!!!
