From the Book --

The purpose of this compilation is to provide children with actual Bible text from some of the more interesting passages rather than simplified paraphrases. When children read a Bible, or have it read to them, it is important that the power and beauty of the word of God be retained. Simplified wording is sometimes appropriate for explanations about the scriptures, but not the Bible itself. Too often paraphrases mislead, and even demean the sacred text. I am a retired middle-school teacher with a Masterís degree. I know how important it is that children develop early an interest in, and an understanding of, the written word. Moreover, adults and children alike are blessed by time spent reading together. That is especially true when the time is spent sharing the Holy Bible. Also, by gaining familiarity with the passages in this compilation children can more easily begin reading the scriptures independently. The text I used was from the ACV (A Conservative Version). You can read more about that version in the appendix of this volume. I tried to choose those events that are not only more familiar, but which also teach us about the nature of God and his relationship with us. My hopes and prayers are that these selections will help all readers learn more about God, and come closer to him.
