The Jesus Storybook Bible Curriculum tells the story beneath the stories in the Bible through a DVD–ROM, hardcover Bible and three audio CDs. A journey like no other, The Jesus Storybook Bible Curriculum invites children to join in the greatest of all adventures.
We used this for our after school club for primary aged children and found it easy to adapt for this purpose. It really does show children how the whole Bible points to the Lord Jesus and how we need him. Each story clip on the DVD lasts 6-7 minutes and is beautifully read by David Suchet - it's a great way to engage children with the Bible when they are tired and restless after a long day. (After the DVD, we would then do a short Bible study that we had written with the older children in our group - this is not included in the curriculum, but we felt it was important to actually be opening Bibles with children.) The colourful worksheet included in the Kit is easy for older children to complete and helps them to think through what they have learnt about Jesus in each session. The lesson plans have lots of ideas for introductory and reinforcement activities and these work well. Great for both children from church families and also those who have had no exposure to the gospel.
We love the Jesus storybook Bible and the DVDs are super. The children were captivated by them and appreciated the elements of humour. The rest of the materials were good and suitable to use but we found that we needed to supplement craft and activities of our own. We were able and happy to do this as we have a wealth of experience between us. We completed the whole curriculum. I would hesitate to use it with new children’s groups teachers. I think that the curriculum would work very well in a after school bible club or on a situation where there was limited time and the DVD could be shown with a short follow up talk and activity.
