    Build character with The Character Builder’s Bible: 60 Character-Building Stories from the Bible! The Character Builder’s Bible is a terrific way to teach children about God’s love for us and gives them a practical guide to daily living. What I love most about The Character Builder’s Bible is that it teaches kids to apply the principles to their lives helping them to build character in the process. Each Bible narrative is told simply, is tied to a positive attribute like obedience or humility, and is followed with a real-life example of how kids can apply the lesson in their own lives. The Character Builder’s Bible: 60 Character-Building Stories from the Bible is an amazing way to help kids build character and I highly recommend!

    The stories of the Bible all teach valuable lessons and morals that we should apply to our daily life. As a young child, however, it can sometimes be difficult to know what those lessons are or how one can apply them to your daily life. With “The Character Builder’s Bible” your child will learn the stories of the Bible and what lessons those stories teach along with suggestions for applying them to your daily life.
    I found this to be a very useful way to help my children understand what God wants them to learn. First we read a Bible story in a way that made it easy for my children to understand. Then we broke down the meaning of the story, the lesson buried inside. Besides the suggestions, my children also enjoyed coming up with their own ways to apply the lessons.
    The illustrations are simple and beautiful with bright, vibrant colors and engaging character depictions.
    The Bible stories have been simplified to be more easily understood by young children. Though they have been simplified, they appeared to be very similar to other children’s Bible story collections.
    The summarizations of the lessons intended to be learned in every story are well thought out, rationalized, and explained. The manner in which they are written helps to present them in an easy to understand light for young readers.
    All in all, I found this to be a wonderful way to communicate these lessons to young children. I would recommend this book to families with young children. A great one to read together.

    Before we even talk about the stories in the book, those illustrations! Oh my grits and gravy they are precious and engaging and amazing and I fell in love with this book through the illustrations. The rest of it all helped as well but good gravy yes. I feel like the quality of the art invites the child into the stories and intended truths that are portrayed, giving them access to dig deeper as well. Not only were they precious and inviting but the cultural diversity in each picture also invited deeper understanding and another way to share with a child means to embrace the character traits found in this book, especially when not everyone lives in a culturally diverse location. Small farming towns in the Midwest aren’t known to really have a great sense of diversity.

    I appreciated that the table of contents was broken down by old and new testament as well as the individual that was featured in the story. I do wish however that there was also a break down of stories by the character trait they embraced. Sometimes you want to spend more time on a certain trait and hunting through the book with a Minion sitting with you isn’t quite the thrilling experience I am portraying here. I appreciated that Bible verse references were given so that the it was easy to incorporate those verses into the story from the translation of parental preference. I even loved the little extras. The comics that furthered the story, and the definitions with extended information on character traits.

    Moo settled herself in with the book for an afternoon and with a lot of help with words read to herself. Her favorite part was the pictures and said it was ‘totally 5 fingers Meme’. Goobie was also drawn into the pictures and enjoyed having the stories read to him. He was more hesitant with the idea that the ideas were relevant to him and I got of ‘I don’t know Meme, you choose’. That’s pretty normal around here. He is one that likes to take an idea and ponder on it and ruminate and then out of the blue will come to you with questions or statements. He’s a 5 finger rating as well. Squirt well, she’s two. She looked at the pictures, didn’t want to settle down for a story time and just grinned at me. She kept coming back to look at the pictures however. I think with time it will be a blessing to her as well.

    This little household found the book to be a blessing that will be returned to time and time again as the Minions grow up and grow in maturity and the character traits take on new meaning.

    Just when I thought our children’s Bible collection was complete, this arrived and changed my mind.
    Not only does this resource contain the usual Bible stories and adorable illustrations, it weaves in character-building lessons too!

    I really love the way this book highlights core character traits found in the Bible and suggests such fun, practical ways to live out these truths with real-life examples.

    There are plenty of adorable, colorful illustrations to go along with the 60 Bible stories and character lessons that will be sure to engage your child and put a smile on his or her face.

    You’ll find all the typical children’s Bible stories in this book along with a few others (like Nehemiah & Miriam). Each one is linked with a positive attribute, like gratefulness, compassion, wisdom and others that you’ll be happy to introduce and discuss with your little one.

    While this book is aimed at toddlers and preschoolers, I feel this book can continue to be enjoyed for several years longer — especially if used as a jumping-off point for more in-depth discussions on character with your elementary-aged children.

    Who’s your favorite character in the Bible? It’s a simple and innocent question. I do, however, find myself often getting frustrated at that question. When we ask it, it’s sort of like asking who you favorite character of a popular movie or television show is. When we say “character,” it insinuates a make of fiction. Moreover, it doesn’t actually get to the real point of the question: why are they your favorite?

    This is where The Character Builder’s Bible: 60 Character-Building Stories from the Bible comes in. This thick, hardcover book by Agnes de Bezenac, Salem de Bezenac, from iCharacter Limited is an amazing teaching tool.

    I was fortunate enough to receive a review copy from the publisher, and have been delighted to be learning with my children ever since. What follows is my personal review of the book.

    When teaching kids about the Bible, it’s easy to lose focus of the character of the people. This is where The Character Builder’s Bible: 60 Character-Building Stories from the Bible comes in. This thick, hardcover book packed with 60 Bible stories containing illustrations, definitions, and memory verses. It’s perfect for showing our kids that God’s Word is relevant to their lives.

    This book is packed, featuring 60 Bible stories with illustrations, definitions, and memory verses. It’s perfect for showing our kids that God’s Word is relevant to their lives….
    Each “chapter” begins with an introduction to the character being explained. It’s opened with a verse and then the story of the character is detailed – in a simple but not demeaning language.

    Next, the character trait is defined – again, in simple language. This is where most books would call it a day. Not this one, though. After introducing the trait, presenting the story, and defining the character trait, the book provides practical applications of it in everyday use. And then, there’s a memory verse to help further instill the meaning and significance of the character trait.

    Oftentimes, though, children hear stories but miss how to apply the principles. The Character Builder’s Bible highlights several character traits within 60 different stories of the Bible. Not only that, it teaches and suggests some fun and practical ways to live out these traits. The language is down-to-earth and easy for little minds to understand.
    So, if you are looking for an effective way to teach character to your kids or youth, get a copy of the The Character Builder’s Bible: 60 Character-Building Stories from the Bible. It’s one that the whole family or Sunday School class can work through together, and one you’ll review many times over.

    I absolutely love looking through The Character Builder’s Bible. The illustrations are so fun and draw my eye immediately. I love the accessibility of the stories for kids, and as I mentioned before, I love that it shares exactly how to practice the character trait in everyday life. It’s not always easy to think of examples in the spur of the moment, and in this case, the work has been done for you!
    Another fun little piece is the last page of the Bible. The last page has a prayer for your child to pray that acknowledges their need for Jesus in their life.
    The only thing I wish The Character Builder’s Bible had is a listing of the character traits. There is a list of each of the stories, but it’s not easy to tell which character trait each story is tied to. I think I’ll be going through the Bible and writing each trait in the table of contents myself. It will be helpful to be able to put a story to the specific thing we are learning about. This might mean jumping around in the Bible a bit.
    (I received a copy of this book from Tyndale House. This review is my own, honest opinion.)

    We read our devotionals and/or Bible every night to the kids at bedtime. I am proud to say if we don’t they remind me! One of the reasons they love this time we spend together is because there are so many great reads out there for kids full of awesome lessons about the bible!

    The book tells a bible story very simply so that your child will understand and that story is tied to an attribute like obedience or humility(character building attributes,) then a real-life example is presented that they can apply in their own lives.
    The stories throughout the book use many attributes like confidence, unselfishness, boldness, sharing, kindness, wisdom, determination and many more awesome traits that you want your kids to have! I really like that this book is just not stories! It has a practical application to the story in the “in my Everyday life” section after the story. I found that this is a great conversation starter for me to talk to my kids about things that might be going on in their lives or how they might be feeling! It’s easy for them to understand and the pages are illustrated beautifully! My kids love this book and we have enjoyed reading it as a family.
