Looking for a great Bible for the kids or grandkids this Christmas? There are so many amazing Bible and devotional options out there (I counted over 60 different kids Bibles and 75+ kids devotional books on the shelf! So overwhelming!). We all want our kids to engage with God in a meaningful way through scripture. Here are 5 Bible Story books that do just that. Click on the linked title to go straight to the House of James website for pricing and in store availability.

  • “Did you know” inserts a thought, idea, or truth about God and info on where to find out more about it in the Bible

Since is it so likely that children will meet cruel enemies, let them at least have heard of brave knights and heroic courage. Otherwise you are making their destiny not brighter but darker.” - C.S. Lewis

Intended to help kids identify with and connect to characters and help them someone to look up to

  • two very different copies, designs, content and characters
  • very intentional and specific aim at the reader, boy or girl,  cover to cover - from font, to colours, to illustrations, it’s meant to get a girl’s attention or appeal to a boy’s interests
  • Chronologically moves through the bible, pulling out the women for the girls and the men for the boys and telling the story of their contributions
