The Christmas Story for Children book review from Creative Madness Mama

I love this. Taking out the special pages from The Story for Children and enlarging and elaborating on them for the Christmas season.

As long as I can remember, to me, Max Lucado has been a trusted name and source in Bible study and devotional resources. When I stumbled across The Story for Little Ones I could not be more pleased. Little Ones encompasses ages 2-5 while The Story for Children: A Storybook Bible I believe is meant for ages 4-8. This is part of a large campaign that includes all ages. The Story for Children (early elementary), The Story for Kids (later elementary), The Story Teen Edition, God’s Story Youth Edition, and then the adult books in The Story, God’s Story Your Story, and a few more. I think from what I have seen (my copy of The Story for Little Ones, God’s Story Your Story (reviewed) and a few digital ARCs of the other youngest versions) I’m excited. I’m really excited that everyone and every age can be touched. That and I adore Max Lucado.

Knowing that I love The Story for Little Ones I was super eager to experience The Story for Children. Little Ones has simple gorgeous illusrations of more-than stick figure quality while The Story for Children are more life-like and complex illustrations, perfect for stepping it up a notch for the reader and their imagination. When I got my hands on the Deluxe Edition I did not know what to expect. I had seen some of the illustrations online, but my Little Ones is a big (thin) book 8.8×11″ and this The Story for Children in my hands is 6.6×8.1″. It is the same size as The Jesus Storybook Bible, The Sweetest Story Bible and The Rhyme Bible Storybook. The Deluxe Edition is in an attractive box sleeve slipcover with illustrations on it. It includes the Bible book and a sleeve with three audio CDs that contain the entire book narrated by Max Lucado. Two CDs for the Old Testament and one CD for the New Testament.

This is beautiful and a treasure to pour over. We love The Story for Little Ones so much I’m going to have to look into the curriculum for kids when we get there to keep the learning going. With these fresh, vibrant, and extremely detailed illustrations.

The Christmas Story for Children is a great treasure for those already familiar with The Story for Children as well as a great introductory gift for any family as well!

The illustrations of Fausto Bianchi are stunning. So full of color and life, the people are so impressive as are the inanimate objects. I love this deluxe edition and I think I find we enjoy the words and illustrations so much it would be worth it to also have the good picture book size to be able to share with the family. I’m truly amazed to see how different this is from the Little Ones but just as incredible all around.
