The Illustrated Bible Dictionary For Kids

Holman Illustrated Bible Dictionary for Kids sold by Lifeway Christian Stores is the next review on our list.  This 212 page Hardback book is sold for $14.99 and is geared toward children ages 5-10 (although my 13 year old enjoyed it as well). Click HERE to view pdf sample pages.

In this very colorful Illustrated Bible Dictionary, there are many helpful features that kids can reference if they need help while reading the Bible.  Most of the entries reference where that entry can be found in the Bible along with pronunciation.  Here are some of the other features:
  • Reconstructions show how towns and buildings may have looked during Biblical times.
  • Illustrated Charts provide children with information (visual and written) on the Bible animals, insects, plants, etc.
  • Definitions of people in Bible stories as well as key concepts.
  • Colorful detailed maps.
We really liked this book a lot.  One of our favorite pages was a table of weights and measurements from Bible times.  We now know that one Handbreadth is equivalent to 3 inches, or 8 centimeters.  

This does not need to be used only as a Bible reference, we had a lot of fun just sitting down and reading through the book itself.

Some other products that are sold by Lifeway Christian Stores are Hands on Geography and Art of Drawing Horses.

*Disclaimer* I received this product free of charge for the purpose of this review.
