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). :)
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.
