About this Bible

Published in partnership with Concordia Publishing House, this new full-color children’s Bible combines the complete ESV Bible text with more than 120 new, vibrant illustrations of major Bible stories. Accompanying each full-page illustration is the Bible story itself, clearly and accurately retold for young readers—and for the parents, grandparents, and teachers who read to them. Each story includes a Key Bible Verse to memorize, Additional Readings for discovering more of the story throughout the Bible, and simple Reflection Questions to help children begin to understand and apply God’s Word. Colorful icons make it easy for young readers to see where each story is found in the Bible text and to locate the illustration that goes with it.

In addition, dozens of Bible characters are profiled throughout the pages, and color call-out sections provide illustrated facts about important Bible objects, structures, and places. Each Bible book begins with a child-friendly introduction, highlighting the important characters and themes found in it.

The ESV Seek and Find Bible is the ideal first “real” Bible for pre-readers and young readers, ages 5 to 9, to grow up with. It is also a wonderful resource for parents to use in family Bible reading and for teachers who teach the Bible to young children.

My Thoughts

This bible seems to be fun to read for a child.   It is geared for kids ages 5 to 9 years old but to be honest I think it should be for ages 8-12.

The Bible has two colors highlighting the books names and chapters as well as the subtitles you find throughout the Bible.   The colors are subtle and in the pastel tones.  These colors  are relaxing for the eyes I find.

You will also find character profiles as well as specific sections telling a story on some of the characters.  Following this story, the child will have a seek and find where he/she can find the section in the Bible where this story is located, a key verse that could be memorized, three key questions to help the child to ponder on what he/she has read as well as related Bible readings to deepen the study.

It contains the complete ESV Bible text which makes it easy for kids to understand.   I don’t know much about the ESV version.  Personally in our house, our kids are introduced to the NIV with AWANA and the NLT at home/church.    

This Bible can be used by Sunday School teachers as well as the scriptures are indeed easier to comprehend.

Finally, this Bible would also become a wonderful gift for a communion, confirmation or for a baptism. 

The Seek and Find Bible is available at your favourite bookstore, even
