XTB 4: Travels Unravelled
There is a free memory Verse card included in this issue that splits into four ways of learning Memory Verses from Exodus, Matthew and Acts.
One piece is a jigsaw puzzle, another a little mobile of planet earth, another piece folds into a picture frame and the last piece becomes a helicopter that is ready to fly in just two folds!
Issue Four of XTB is called Travels Unravelled. Three months of Bible readings to help you explore the very first Easter in Matthew's Gospel, wander through the wilderness with the Israelites in exodus, and join Paul as he travels to Rome in Acts. We'll dip into some of Paul's letter as well.
XTB (eXplore The Bible) is a series of daily Bible reading notes for children of the 7-11 age group, with puzzles, pictures and prayers.
XTB is beautifully presented with full-color illustrations and is a series of 12 books which, if used on a quarterly basis, will help a child cover all of the main books, themes and characters of the Bible in 3 years.
Look out for Table Talk - a book of daily Bible times for families with children aged from 4 upwards. The Bible passages are the same each day for XTB and Table Talk - so you can use the two books together, or on their own. Whichever suits you best.
Table of contents
- Days 1-10 look at the final part of Acts, chs 23-28
- Over days 11-15 there's a chance to look at some of the letters Paul wrote to the people he met in Acts.
- We get back into Exodus chs 13-17 over days 16-25
- And then again to Matthew chs 26-28 over days 26-45
- Days 46-65 pick up in Exodus again and we go through chs 19-33 with a little look back at Matthew ch 5 on day 54, relevant to Exodus
- A series of puzzles and questions at the very end of the book offer a chance to look into other parts of the Bible not covered here. There is also a little bit of serious code-cracking to do on the very last page.

happy(Review written for 'XTB Subscription')
My kids just so enjoyed doing it by themselves. They brought it over to show me. I was so happy they can do it independently. The activities book such are good exercise through the self-study. Thank you our great saviour lord...
A very helpful introduction to personal Bible study for kids.
We first bought these for our eldest son when he was almost 7, as we wanted to encourage him to read the bible and to learn to pray through what he has read by himself. XTB has been an excellent, appropriate and fun way for him to get into the bible for himself. He does it last thing at night after our family devotions and loves the fact that it is interactive, with codes and puzzles. XTB is an ideal resource to help young ones learn in an age appropriate way. I would say, depending on your child, it would be suitable for ages 6 - 9.
Excellent(Review written for 'XTB Subscription')
Excellent! Our 8 yr old boy n 6 yr old daughter love doing it first thing in the morning by themselves Takes them maybe 10 mins and they really enjoy it. We hope it will help them love God's word and get into daily habit of sitting at Jesus ' feet - it seems to be doing that so far .Can't recommend it enough.
Highly recommended(Review written for 'XTB Subscription')
A first-rate bible reading resource for our 9 year old son. Clear, thought-provoking teaching with interesting puzzles to do which reinforce it. He loves doing it and never wants to miss one before he goes to bed.

XTB notes for children(Review written for 'XTB Subscription')
My daughter is very much enjoying her XTB. As a parent it is good to see your children developing a taste for learning from scripture. XTB is working for her right now. Thanks
Great resource!(Review written for 'XTB Subscription')
Our 8 year old daughter looks forward to doing her 'bible reading' each night - it is easy for her to read alone and understand the big picture of the passage. It also has interesting activities for her. Highly recommended!!
XTB bible notes(Review written for 'XTB Subscription')
Bought these for my daughters age 6 and 7. Both love doing their bible notes each night. My 6 year old struggles with the reading and some of the puzzles bur this doesn't deter her and with a little help she keeps up with her sister! Such a privilege to guide them as they learn from the bible themselves. The conversations we have had about the subjects they have been learning about have been amazing. The notes point them each day to the Saviour - what more can I add?!
A great resource for kids
Our 7 year old son loves this series. A great way to get kids looking at the Bible for themselves.
Great tool for getting kids into the Bible(Review written for 'XTB Subscription')
I ordered XTB because I wanted something more than just Bible stories for my nearly 7 year old. We enjoy doing it together and every day is different which I like. There are some fun puzzles and teaching points are put across in creative ways. She is definitely learning more about God and being a Christian from doing it and so am I!
