The Catholic Children's Bible, newly revised!

A Complete Children's Bible Just for Them, now with Reading Plans and Stickers!

The ground breaking complete Catholic Children’s Bible from Saint Mary's Press is back with even more to love! With new stickers and reading plans–it not only inspires, but empowers children to read, live, understand, and love the Word of God. The stories of our Catholic faith come alive with vivid, awe-inspiring artwork, larger text, and many more design features that not only enhance comprehension but create enjoyment as well.

I Can Read It! 

Reading Plans with stickers guide children through themes like Great Stories of Faith, the Miracles of Jesus, Following Jesus, and The Mass. Intentional design elements such as fonts built for early readers, increased line spacing, bold vocabulary words, colorized text, minimal hyphenation, and simple column dividers help make this a Bible children can read on their own. 

I Can Find It! 
Unique navigational features such as colorized tabs, large chapter and verse numbers, full Scripture references, and clear and concise story titles, are all designed specifically for early readers and to help children easily locate passages and stories. 

I Can Understand It! 
Young children will be able to understand and relate to God’s Word through the Understand It! and Tell It! sections, bold vocabulary words and easy-to-understand definitions, the realistic artwork and borders, the introductions to the Old and New Testaments, and the many pictures, maps, and time lines that are included throughout the Bible.

What people are saying about The Catholic Children's Bible, newly revised!

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.

Review by Bridget Simpson, Pensacola/Tallahassee 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!

Review by Pat Solenski, St. Anthony Parish Religious Education, Fort Lauderdale, FL.

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!

Review by Claudia Lugo, St. Paul the Apostle Catholic Church, Chino Hills, CA.

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!

Review by Silvia Zaborowski, Our Lady of Mount Carmel Catholic Church, Buckeye Lake, OH.

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!

Review by A. Karina Plascencia, parent and catechist, Office of Religious Education, Los Angeles, California.

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!
