Here is my review of this engaging storybook:

First, I would like to extend a heartfelt “Thank you” to Catherine DeVries and Sergio Cariello and their publisher for sending me a copy of "Action Storybook Bible" to review for them. I am truly grateful for this generosity. I really appreciate the time, effort and expense it takes to make a reviewer copy available to me.
The 'Action Storybook Bible' by Catherine DeVries and Sergio Cariello is an engaging, colorful, comic book format retelling of several beloved Bible stories.  Each chapter is based on different sections of Scripture: some are based on a few verses, others are based on chapters and still others are based on whole books of the Bible.  Each story is followed by a page that identifies an aspect of God’s character, an illustration of God at work, an exercise to encourage application of the principles of the story to our lives and a prayer.

I was surprised at the depth of insight into the stories in several cases.  The “Action Storybook Bible” would be a great devotional for parents or grandparents to do with children.  It will lay a foundation in the home that can be supplemented by Sunday School and future education.
