My First Catholic Bible gives children aged 6 to 10 a devotional Bible of their very own. This colorfully illustrated storybook Bible is not an adaptation or a paraphrase of the Bible, but it uses selections from the actual text of the highly respected and readable New Revised Standard Version, Catholic Edition, including stories from the Deuterocanonical Books. With Stories from Noah's ark to the angel's annunciation to St. Mary - from Moses on the mountain talking to God to St. Peter in Jerusalem preaching to people from every nation - My First Catholic Bible is ideal for family devotions, but also perfectly suited for children to read on their own. The 260 Bible stories include memory verses and prayer starters that make the scriptures even more exciting and fun to read. Full-color art by Natalie Carabetta helps children visualize the action and people in each story.
