Once Upon A Time Bible Reviews

I have a couple of Bible reviews for you today, and I have to say, they are so lovely! If you have young children (or grandchildren), I think that either of these would make a wonderful Easter gift. ♥

First let’s look at the Once Upon a Time Storybook Bible …
The Bible is not a fairy tale, but every great story happened “once upon a time.”


With the popularity of fairy tales and Disney animation, and especially with the new release of Disney’s live action Beauty and the Beast on March 17,  Zonderkidz wanted to publish a storybook Bible and full -text Bible that would resonate with children and families who loved those types of movies, and love reading a great story. 

The Once Upon a Time Storybook Bible highlights powerful and inspiring stories from the Bible, beautifully illustrated with fantastical artwork by Omar Aranda. Stories include: Ruth, Abigail, Esther, The Parable of the Lost Sheep, The Prodigal Son, Mary Magdalene, and many more. Each captivating story is told in a way that will get children excited about reading the tales of real heroes of the Bible. It contains 33 of the greatest stories of the Bible in beautiful full color, and includes a “Happily Ever After” takeaway at the end, along with a Scripture reference.

This is such a fun, colorful, beautiful book! With a hard cover and nice thick pages, I could see it easily becoming a child’s favorite Bible storybook.

The Once Upon a Time Storybook Bible is available at Sam’s Club or wherever books are sold. For more information, check out the websites below:


Next comes the Once Upon a Time Holy Bible …

The NIrV Once Upon a Time Bible contains a presentation page and also highlights six great stories from the Bible on 24 full-color inserts. Each story is told on four pages in full-color, illustrated splendor. Also contains the complete New International Reader’s Version (NIrV) of the Bible. We all have our own tale to live and what better place to look for help and encouragement than the greatest story of all.

Stories include:
