National Geographic Kids - 1,000 Facts About the Bible Book (with #giveaway)!

Disclosure: I received a sample product to help facilitate the review. All opinions stated are genuine and my own.



National Geographic is well known for printing high quality material, both in content and in photos. Their 1,000 Facts About the Bible book (for kids) is no exception. This is an over-sized hardcover book (age recommendation 8+) with an emphasis on Biblical figures, history, archaeological discoveries and life in Biblical times.


My son enjoyed seeing pictures from stories he's learned here and there, and we both enjoyed learning some of the new-to-us facts. Everything is written in really simple terms and phrases, which keeps the information fresh and not boring, that latter of which fact books for kids can sometimes do.


Features such as 25 Villainous Facts and Dastardly Deeds, 15 Inspirational Facts About Biblical Art, 25 Telling Facts About the Prophets, and 15 Bounding Biblical Baby Facts add to the learning and reading fun. The words are also written in appealing fonts and highlighted with colorful blocks to separate thoughts. The fast facts make it easy to play trivia if you want (and in our house we're always wanting to play trivia). :)


Right now my son is learning about book structures in his First-Grade classroom so he was particularly excited to see the huge glossary in the back ('glossary' is one of the latest and greatest terms he's learned at school). He was telling me all about how to use one, and how useful they were to help you find things when you didn't want to read a whole book at once. His enthusiasm was contagious (because well, who gets excited about a glossary?!? Gotta love the kiddos. :) ).

In addition to the extensive glossary, additional resources are also offered in this book that are both in print and online.

This is a great coffee table book to have in the house, and if you celebrate the religious meaning behind Easter, it would make a great holiday gift idea too.

You can purchase this book at national retailers or at the National Geographic store online. One lucky winner is going to get a copy of their own. US entrants only. Fast giveaway! Ends 3/26/15.

Oh my goodness what a neat give-away. I have to tell you Rosey my friend. I remember when I was little I went to Catholic Kindergarten school, catholic grammar school and 1 yr of Catholic highschool now while I was in there I made my communion & all the other sacraments a little girl should make & at no extra cost, but nowadays my grandchildren are all heathens because it costs to dam much so we have the job of teaching our children/grandchildren about the Almighty Father & it's things like this I personally look for. Thanks for sharing because I have a couple of little baby heathens growing up... ~snicker~ love my babies. Thanks for the help! Fingers crossed.!!!! I wonder though who would like the book more them or me! bwahahaha

My little guy is getting his first communion in May, so this would be nice to get for him!

I am not of the Christian faith but for those of you who are this would be a marvelous way to give your children some background information on Biblical times. National Geographic is known for their wonderful books and magazines--I would not be afraid to gift one to anyone I knew or even didn't know. We should all be tolerant of other religious beliefs.
