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.
This is just the thing to get kids studying on their own (mine do 10 mins before a bedtime story) and finding out interesting Biblical facts. Presented in a kid friendly way with illustrations and simple but foundational truths one at a time, 3 of my kids have used this to start study on their own, 1 to go so will be getting another set at some point. Ages 7 upwards has worked for us. They also show it to their friends and have sent them to non churched kids for presents with no complaints :)
My 7 year old is really enjoying these. They are a great resource to help children get into the habit of reading the Bible every day. They are great fun as well as excellent at helping children apply the Bible to their lives.
Really good value way of buying these. It is so difficult to find good bible study resources for children, but these are excellent. My children (6 & 8) love them, especially cracking the codes. Quite difficult for the 6 yr old ( but he had grown out of the (also good) Pens ones we had been using and difficult to find anything inbetween) but 8 yr old can do them on her own and finds them really stimulating - she would love to work through several at a time but then I would run out of things for her to do! The little extras (stickers, magnifying glass, prayer journal etc.) also go down well. Each book also explains really well how to become a christian and what it means in your life.
We have been XTB with our 8 year old daughter for over a year now, we use it as 'quiet time' before she goes to bed. She enjoys it so much and it has taught her to think about the Bible far more then if we had just been reading the bible with her. We will continue to do XTB with her every night and will start doing it with her younger sister as she gets older too. What a brilliant concept and very well presented.
My kids really enjoy these and will choose to do them over other stories. Clear, simple and varied applications each day.
Full of colour, puzzles and activities. My 9 year old daughter happily sits and reads it by herself as the level is accessible and activities fun.
We love XTB (me and my 6 year old son). It helps to really understand the gospel, not just the bible stories. I think however that it's not right to call this a year's subscription. 1 issue contains 65 days of bible studies and you receive 4 issues over the year, which is only 260 days of bible studies and not the 365 days a year has. I think this should be more clearly advertised!
I have found the XTB resource to be such a wonderful bible study tool and aid for our primary school children (7-9) I would definitely recommend it to parents who are considering to purchase it for there children who want to grow in the bible knowledge and spiritual growth as this is pitched a the right level.
We have used table talk, a Good Book resource for many years with all 4 of our children. We have recently tried XTB with our 8 year old who is really enjoying it and is familiar with the design. It is really great to see her do her own Bible Study every night, and get into (hopefully) a lifelong love of the scriptures. I would really reccommend this resource, Table Talk is still really great (our oldest, now 10 still enjoys it and our youngest, 5 is now answering questions), and XTB is a super follow on. We do table talk as a family every weekday morning and XTB is used every night. It's great value and teaches alot of Gods word in a simple format anyone can understand. Thanks.
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.
