Veggie Tales Bible Book Review

Classic VeggieTales Characters Teach Children about the Bible

My review
What is not to love about this Veggie Tales Bible!!  Oh, my goodness, my heart danced for joy when I received this Bible in the mail.  My son LOVES Veggie Tales and he will be thrilled to receive this on his 5th birthday (shh, don't tell!) in November.  This Bible has all the needed elements to make God's Word come alive for young readers: cute cover, written in New International Readers Version, book introductions, Veggie Tale values scattered throughout, things to remember, a dictionary and 8 different full color stories as told from the fabulous Veggie Tales videos in cartoon form.  This Bible is sure to capture a young child to be enticed to read and learn.  It is a great tool for parents to use and help their children grow in the Lord.  I look forward to reading this Bible with my son.

Formerly published in the New International Version (NIV) in 2009, the VEGGIETALES BIBLE (Zonderkidz; $27.99; January 2013) is now available in the New International Reader’s Version (the NIV for kids written at a third grade reading level).  Children will experience the Bible in a whole new way as the VeggieTales characters they already know and love introduce them to key Bible stories and guide them through fun new features in the Bible.


With a beautifully vivid cover, the VEGGIETALES BIBLE (Zonderkidz; $27.99; January 2013) contains the complete text of the Old and New Testaments, using the New International Reader’s Version filled with helpful features for children ages 6 through 9.
In addition to the full text of the Bible, the fresh components include:
·         (8) four-page color inserts with spirited comic strips interspersed throughout the text.  Entitled “Veggie Stories,” each chronicle--based on known Bible characters like the Prophet Jonah and Esther, the Queen of Persia—is brought to life with playful illustrations of favorite VeggieTales characters from popular VeggieTales DVDs.
“Remember Thishighlights 100 important verses to commit to memory, such as “The Lord is my shepherd.” (Psalm 23:1)
·         “Veggie Values” offers a child-friendly interpretation of passages to help kids process crucial themes from the Bible, like telling the truth and having patience.
·         As an added learning tool, the handy glossary at the end of the book helps children grasp key biblical words and concepts.

In the VEGGIETALES BIBLE, readers will discover the Bible in an animated form, tailored just for them, as Bob, Larry and the rest of the VeggieTales gang evoke learning and growth.

Perfect for bedtime or as a way to start each day, the VEGGIETALES BIBLE is a wonderful learning tool for young readers seeking to know more about the Word of God.
The VeggieTales Bible, NIrV is also available with Italian Duo-Tone binding (pictured right, $36.99).
