Works well for Gr. 5
By Judy Huppert
It works well for Gr. 5. The reading level is a little challenging for some, but the graphics are a good addition for this level.
Would give it five stars!

Our PSR classes have used the Catholic Children's Bible for a number of years. We are pleased to use this program that connects our younger Catholic to the Bible.
Helps youth understand the Bible!
By Deborah Brown, Robertsdale
Much easier for children and young teens to read and understand, promotes further reading of the Bible. Large font is a bonus for this teacher too!
The Catholic Children's Bible a Must for Younger children
By Karen B, Mequon, WI
We have given this bible to our First Eucharist students for the past 4 years and the excitement over the bible is shared by both parents and children. It is joyfully anticipated by all those entering second grade.
Used in grades 1-6 . Great
By Carol Mercord
We use them in all grades 1-6 . It gives hands on experience and much easier to read even for adults.
By Armando Cervantes
The leelo, vivelo, and amalo activities bring this Bible to life. I can't wait to see children excited to not only read the Word of God but go out and share it! This is what La Biblia católica para niños will do!
By Juan Carlos Farias-Gonzalez, Director of Hispanic Ministry, Catholic Diocese of Grand Rapids, MI
I truly admire the work that Saint Mary’s Press has done to create a resource for Catholic children—as well as the extra effort it has made to prepare a resource for our Hispanic children in a language that is not only appropriate for them but in a language that they speak, understand, and pray. This resource will create an opportunity for Hispanic children and for their families. One of the values in the Hispanic community is strong families, and this resource will not only reach Hispanic children but their adult relatives as well.
I certainly endorse La Biblia católica para niños as one of the resources that will impact the faith and understanding of the biblical stories in a more effective and clear way.
By Giovanni O. Perez, Consultant of Elementary Catechesis, Archdiocese of Los Angeles
La Biblia Católica para Niños is a resource that a catechist must have in his or her personal library. Besides the sacred text, which is faithfully presented, La Biblia Católica para Niños offers additional pages of selected stories for greater understanding, ideas on how to live according to the Gospel values, and simple activities that engage the children. Catechist, La Biblia Católica para Niños: Read it, live it, love it!
By Claudio A. Mora, Family Life Coordinator, Diocese of Dallas, TX.
It is my pleasure and an honor to endorse the new Catholic Children’s Bible Spanish Edition from Saint Mary’s Press. I’m very pleased that we have this Bible available for the Spanish speaking communities in our Parishes and Dioceses.
This Bible has all the elements that children need to become more familiar with the Word of God in a way that is fun, attractive and developmentally appropriate for children. It is fascinating that it is the complete version of the Bible and not just bible stories for children, like in many other books.
The Spanish language used in this version of the Bible is simple and easy for children from any Spanish speaking country to understand. I believe this is a very valuable tool that can be used both in Faith Formation programs in Parishes and at home for daily reading.
By Bridget Simpson, Pensacola/Tallahassee FL.
Thank you so much for FINALLY giving us a Children's Bible! I kept searching for something to have for my children and I found it last year at a Conference in our area (Bishop Ricard's Conference). I was so excited I texted my friends to see if they wanted one -two had them within days. I also help with a women's group at my church, and will be sure to share with them this beautiful resource.
By Pat Solenski, St. Anthony Parish Religious Education, Fort Lauderdale, FL.
I just opened my Catholic Children’s Bible and I am shouting Alleluia! It has pictures and Scripture together! I’ve been in ministry over 30 years and this is exactly what we need! Saint Mary’s Press has always been on the cutting edge with their Bibles! THANK YOU!
By Claudia Lugo, St. Paul the Apostle Catholic Church, Chino Hills, CA.
I attended the LA Congress this past weekend and purchased a copy of The Catholic Children’s Bible. I had a chance to look it over and I wanted to cry. I can’t believe somebody created this! I want to tell the whole world about it! I am emailing all of my catechists, friends, and family. There is nothing like this out there!
By Silvia Zaborowski, Our Lady of Mount Carmel Catholic Church, Buckeye Lake, OH.
I'm really excited about the new Catholic Children's Bible. I had no trouble getting orders from parents. Out of everyone I showed the book to, only one didn’t place an order. Some parents even said they would want to read it themselves, so I think this could be an awesome evangelizing tool for parents. To tell you the truth, I want to read it myself! Parents were also excited about the Catholic prayers and the additional information at the end of the book. But what they loved the most were the “Understand it,” “Live it” and “Tell it” sections. You really have a winner here!
By A. Karina Plascencia, parent and catechist, Office of Religious Education, Los Angeles, California.
The Catholic Children’s Bible from Saint Mary's Press is the first children’s Bible that color-codes all the books, making it easier to use! It is the Bible a child can grow up with!
By Gina Esposito, St. Mary's Parish, OH.
I attended a First Communion meeting today as a catechist and parent. Your representative presented some of the elements of The Catholic Children's Bible. I told her we use it during our second grade Parish School of Religion class because the children love it. Our students discovered page 15 (Bookshelves) and taught each other the order of the books. An awesome experience!
