"The Bible is not a fairy tale, but every great story happened “once upon a time.” The Once Upon a Time Storybook Bible highlights powerful and inspiring stories from the Bible, beautifully illustrated with fantastical artwork by Omar Aranda. Each captivating story is told in a way that will get children excited about reading the tales of real heroes of the Bible."
FlyBy Promotions sent me both the Once Upon a Time Storybook Bible and The Once Upon a Time Holy Bible for review.  Both are written in NIrV (New International Readers Version).  NIrV is an easy to read biblical translation perfect for new readers and coupled with these vivid illustrations, these Bibles are sure to be a fave of your little one or new reader.
Once Upon a Time Storybook Bible
The Once Upon a Time Storybook Bible features 33 familiar Bible stories and lots of brightly colored illustrations.  Each story is just a couple of pages which is perfect for lulling little ones to sleep.  This is more of a book of Bible stories than a Bible per se, but for those looking for a Bible, there is the accompanying Once Upon a Time Holy Bible.
Once Upon a Time Holy Bible
The Once Upon a Time Holy Bible is an easy to read Bible complete with listing of Bible books, explanation of the NIrV translation, index and dictionary.  An ideal gift for an elementary school aged Bible reader and would make a wonderful addition to the church library.
Both are beautifully illustrated and a great way to share the love of our Heavenly Father.  For more info on either of these selections, visit or a local bookstore near you.

This looks like a wonderful bedtime-story book for children. I especially like how it's fully interested, which can help to keep children engaged. I also like that the stories are brief (just a few pages each, as you mentioned in the review), making them great for just-before-bed.
