I love the way this children's bible is put together. Each passage is clearly marked with the actual book and line numbers for cross-referencing, and the chapters are short enough to read to toddlers and older children. We are currently reading the Old Testament, and I am particularly pleased with the footnotes, which offer some commentary on how passages relate to the New Testament. This has been a wonderful resource in finally developing the vocabulary necessary to talk to my children about what is most important: God.
