Zonderkidz, the children’s branch of Zondervan, now offers their 25th anniversary edition of the classic Beginner’s Bible with new, vibrant pictures! For this review, our family enjoyed the updated version and the additional resources offered by Zonderkidz.
What is The Beginner’s Bible?
As thebeginnersbible.com describes, The Beginner’s Bible has been a favorite with families since its first release in 1989. Now, for its 25th anniversary, it has a fresh new look with vibrant pictures that engage young children. Full of faith and fun, with easy-to-read text, The Beginner’s Bible is a wonderful way to introduce the Bible stories and characters to your children. With over 90 Bible stories, The Beginner’s Bible was named the 2006 Retailers Choice Award winner in Children’s Nonfiction.
The Bible stories are concise and short to meet the attention span of young children.
This children’s Bible introduces Bible stories and characters to kids in a way that makes God and the true stories of scripture approachable and desirable!
I recommend The Beginner’s Bible for young children, children with learning disabilities, or autism. The stories are clear and the vibrant pictures are so engaging!

How did our family use The Beginner’s Bible?
My 5-year-old son, Sam, loved sitting and looking at the pictures while waiting for me to read to him.
I found that, while reading the Bible stories, I could add more details about the characters and stories. And Sam continued to listen because he loved the cheerful pictures.
The new 3-D pictures make The Beginner’s Bible approachable for children. The beautiful pictures are so joyful and loving! Sam wanted to “read” the Bible on his own and with me. He even brought it to church to share with his friends.
Helping children enjoy the Bible at a young age is so important! It sets them up for a lifetime of essential Bible learning. The Beginner’s Bible is an engaging tool to help parents and teachers instill a love for scripture in children.
