A great Bible for kids -- it makes the stories more interesting to younger children and teens, and has questions to think about as you read along.
"Sixty Old and New Testament stories (emphasis on the Old Testament) are provided with timelines and supplemental material that help to place them in historical context. The short stories are told in simple language so that kids will take away one or two important messages from them. An effort is made to help kids get excited about the Bible by including tidbits from various disciplines that were contemporaneous with the Bible chapter. For example, the section discussing Moses receiving the Ten Commandments from God (entitled "An Agreement with God") occurred between 1400 and 1446 B.C. This section also tells the reader that Egyptian culture flourished during this period (trade, music and art) and the first Chinese dictionary with over 40,000 characters was published." -BarnesAndNoble.com
