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.
Great prices .. reasonable "free shipping" amount of product level .. kind people on the end of the phone ... what more could you want. Will definitely be knocking on the door again.
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.
My 10 year old son loves these Bible notes, very happy to do them on his own or with a parent. Really good.
My children are aged 5 and 10. Both have enjoyed this resource in different ways. My older daughter gets to show off her reading skills to her brother while learning her way around the Bible. My baby boy loved the stickers and the puzzles that he could manage. We get to have a family time around God's word each night before bedtime. It promotes lively discussion and lots of interesting questions. It's often the 5 year old who eagerly reminds us to read.
These notes are just right for our family Bible Reading times. The passage is the right length for our 6 year old to maintain concentration and the book is illustrated well. The day's reading is well structured by having the reading first followed by an activity or words to fill in to ensure the point has got through. We will continue with this series of books.
We are really enjoying using the Bible Reading Notes and my 6 and a half year old loves the puzzle approach. He finds the stickers quite motivating too. I am very grateful for the encouragement to study and pray each day in an age appropriate way.
We also brought the table talk book to share with my husband who as yet is not a church goer. We haven't got around to the Table Talk yet, but are looking forward to using it.
My 7 year old daughter and I enjoy working through these Bible Reading notes. The activities are engaging and there is the right balance of reading from the Bible. She looks forward to reading the Bible each evening and that has to be a good start to a lifetime of Bible reading
I bought this, with the intention of going through the notes with choirboys who had absolutely no knowledge of the Bible. It was not suitable for this, but would be very good for children with Christian parents, who had some Bible knowledge, and some understanding of biblical and spiritual concepts. I think this was my mistake. the readings and activities themselves were very suitable it my children did not have the background knowledge at all to deal with the questions.
I have bought 10 copies of this to give away as a gift at the end of a Christianity course with infant and junior aged children. They are not too expensive if families want to continue to buy them and I gave details of where from. In the past I have used them with my own children who enjoyed the stickers, timelines and other add-ons. No one bible study aid is perfect, but they all trigger discussion and my children looked forward to the activities in these, so that's a good thing! A lot of the activities tend towards code breaking activities (in these and other children's Bible notes), so the variety of activity can be lacking.
I have bought this for my granddaughter for Christmas so she has not seen it yet, but I have had a good look through it and I think it is an ideal source of teaching for kids presented in a way that will appeal to them.
