This resource, Halley\s Bible Kidnotes, is a simplified version of the best-selling Halley\s Bible Handbook. Kidnotes is based on the New International Version for children. The subtitle for the book is ?Bite-Sized Bible Facts and Where to Find Them,? and that is just what it is!

There is a friendly illustration with the introduction to each Bible book that many children will want to color. Following the introduction is a page of facts—the writer, the place and people of the book, why the book is important, and a list of the book\s stories, with the corresponding chapter and verse. The volume also includes:

? Biblical character sketches

? Verse-by-verse references

? Study maps & charts

? An easy-to-use index

Kidnotes is recommended for children, ages six to ten. We would raise that to begin at seven or eight, because of the level of some of the vocabulary. This colorful volume would make a nice gift!
