Bible Dictionary for Kids

Bible Dictionary for Kids

In our quest to find some Cool Bible Tools, I stumbled across Holman Illustrated Bible Dictionary for Kids and man was I impressed!  The pages are nice and big (around 8×10), great for when you want to show the class a certain page or two.  The illustrations are colorful and bright, but very realistic too.

Some of the cool features include maps and reconstruction of Bible-time towns, illustrated charts, pronunciation guide, photography, and easy to understand  definitions.  Almost every entry provides supporting scripture so kids can read more about a certain person, event, or thing.  Lots of entries have extras too — like a map of Abraham’s journeys next to his name or the descriptions of each apostle next to the “apostle” entry.

This book errs on the side of more information for each entry instead of many many entries.  It’s very complete on the things it does cover, but may leave out a lesser known places or people.   As far as I can see, though — it has everything a kid might be looking for when using a Bible dictionary.   It covers all the major things and quite a few obscure things such as Mezuzah and Mother-in-law.

Overall, a really great resource to have, and very reasonable priced.  Pick up your own copy here on Amazon for about $11 and start using it in your ministry!
