Thank you to Warner Press for providing a copy of Egermeier’s Interactive Story Bible for review. All opinions are 100% my own.
Bible literacy is so important in our lives. That is why I do my fair share of Bible reviews. I want you to know there are options for all ages and stages of life. We all learn differently. Some of us want room to doodle, others want larger print, some want lots of pictures, and still others want all the maps, charts, and extras; this is why I share so many Bibles with you. So you can make and informed decision that will help you and your family fall deeper in love with the Word of God.

Mom Maven’s Thoughts
Ergemeier’s Interactive Story Bible is a great tool for family worship or bedtime story time. It is geared to kids ages 8-12 which I feel is a bit old for a story Bible. Once kids start reading fluently they need to have a real Bible to learn from. I always feel bad as a Kids’ Church volunteer when an elementary school aged child asks for help finding the verses I am teaching on and I can’t help them because they don’t have a full Bible.
That being said, this story Bible is great for home use. I love that it is in chronological order so a family reading aloud together can see the whole story laid out neatly and in order. The questions that are after every story help families to discuss and go deeper into what has been read. The QR codes bring up videos that help bring some of the stories to life. The maps in the back help kids to see where things happened and how far apart some of the important biblical cities are.
