Holman Illustrated Bible Dictionary for Kids - A TOS Crew Review


Holman Illustrated Bible Dictionary For Kids (2010)
A Holman Reference Book
B & H Publishing Group
127 Ninth Avenue, North
Nashville, TN 37234
$14.99 - hardcover edition - ages 5-10

What is a ziggurat, and what does it have to do with the tower of Bable?  Quick, can you name 12 names of Jesus?  How much does 30 shekels weigh?  What were the tribal allotments of Israel?  What did the temple courts look like?  Did you know vultures were mentioned in the Bible?  What were the names of the 12 apostles?

You can find all this and much more in the 212 pages of this wonderfully illustrated and colorful kid's dictionary.  There are tons of colorful detailed maps and a number of useful charts including
  • Animals of the Bible
  • The Apostles  
  • Birds in the Bible  
  • Jewish Festivals and Feasts  
  • Foods in Bible Times  
  • Insects of the Bible  
  • Table of Weights and Measures in the Bible  
  • Musical Instruments of the Bible 
  • Names of God 
  • Names of Jesus 
  • Divisions of the New Testament  
  • Divisions of the Old Testament  
  • Parables of Jesus  
  • 10 Plagues of Egypt 
  • Plants in the Bible  
  • Ten Commandments  
  • Tools of the Bible

In my opinion, this Bible Dictionary is perfect for Parents, Teachers, and Kids.  In these pages there are Reconstructions, Illustrated Charts, KJV Entries, Pronunciation Guide, Photographs, and Realistic Illustrations and Definitions.  The book contains 750+ terms. 

This dictionary is wonderful for trivia, bible study, using in my Sunday School class, and, of course, pleasure reading.  The layout, accuracy, and scripture appear to be pretty good, and the definitions and references are easily understood.  We had fun looking through this dictionary and will be using it a lot.  Although this product is suggested for ages 5 to 10 years old, we all found something we liked.  My 13 year old says it's "a pretty good one", and my 5 year old is fascinated by the pictures.   My Sunday School class of kids will be enjoying this one too.
