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 loved reading a great story.
Zonderkidz wanted to capture fans of this genre, but introduce young children to the word of God, and introduce them to the great characters of the Bible. It’s important to note that this brand serves to resound the theme that the Bible is NOT a fairy tale, but every great Bible story happened once upon a time. The Bible is the ultimate Happily Ever After story!
The Once Upon a Time Holy Bible is NIrV version. It also highlights 6 stories with colorful illustrations. I like this version and the illustrations and highlight stories draw the reader in. You can buy this book wherever books are sold.
The Once Upon a Time Storybook Bible is full of colorful illustrations to make the stories come alive. Each story has a "Happily Ever After" section that shares a lesson to learn from the story. For example for the story of Zacchaeus it reads, "Zacchaeus wasn't always a good person, but Jesus wanted to be friends with him anyway. Jesus loves us no matter what mistakes we make." It also shows where in the Bible the story is found so you can look it up and go deeper if you would like. This storybook is available at Sam's Club and wherever books are sold
