NEW! The Catholic Children's Bible, Second Edition (hardcover)
The first-ever hard cover Catholic Children’s Bible is now better than ever! This complete Bible inspires and empowers children to read, understand, and love the Word of God, in a revised edition.
With new, easy-to-follow Reading Plans and colorful stickers, the stories of our Catholic faith come alive with vivid, awe-inspiring artwork, larger text, and design features that not only enhance comprehension but create enjoyment.
- Reading Plans with stickers guide children through themes like Great Stories of Faith, the Miracles of Jesus, Following Jesus, and The Mass
- Children will know and understand God’s saving plan, revealed through 125 Feature Story spreads highlighting key Bible passages.
- Understand It! sections enable children to comprehend central themes by using child-friendly backgrounds and commentary.
- Live It! instructions encourage children to apply the meaning of each story to their lives through engaging activities and prayers.
- Tell It! frames help children to retain and comprehend the passage by having them retell the story in their own words.
- Vibrant illustrations immediately engage children and allow them to “dive in” to Scripture and become immersed in the stories.
- Intentional navigational and design elements such as fonts built for early readers, increased line spacing, bold vocabulary words, colorized text, and column dividers help to make this a Bible children can easily navigate and read on their own.

Thank you so much for FINALLY giving us a Children's Bible!

The pages are well laid out with large print and adequate spacing. Age-appropriate pictures are placed throughout the book. Colored tabs help to locate the various biblical books. In lieu of footnotes an asterisk appears after some versus, indicating that more information can be found in the Appendix at the end of the book. There one also finds a Bible Time Line, helpful maps, and aspects of Catholic culture such as the list of corporal and spiritual works of mercy, basic prayers, an explanation of the rosary, and a list of biblical passages for “special times.” This is a fine resource for children.
