The Catholic Children's Bible: Good News Translation

The first-ever Catholic Children’s Bible is now better than ever! 

By Sr. Mary Kathleen Glavich and Brian Singer-Towns.

Hardback (2nd Edition) SMP9296 
Paperback (2nd Edition) SMP9197
Leader Guide SMP0422 
Activity Booklet SMP1818

This complete Bible inspires and empowers children to read, understand, and love the Word of God, in a revised edition
With new, easy-to-follow Reading Plans and colourful stickers, the stories of our Catholic faith come alive with vivid, awe-inspiring artwork, larger text, and design features that not only enhance comprehension but create enjoyment.
  • Reading Plans with stickers guide children through themes like Great Stories of Faith, the Miracles of Jesus, Following Jesus, and The Mass.
  • Children will know and understand God’s saving plan, revealed through 125 Feature Story spreads highlighting key Bible passages.
  • Understand It! sections enable children to comprehend central themes by using child-friendly backgrounds and commentary.
  • Live It! instructions encourage children to apply the meaning of each story to their lives through engaging activities and prayers.
  • Tell It! frames help children to retain and comprehend the passage by having them retell the story in their own words.
  • Vibrant illustrations immediately engage children and allow them to “dive in” to Scripture and become immersed in the stories.
  • Intentional navigational and design elements such as fonts built for early readers, increased line spacing, bold vocabulary words, colorized text, and column dividers help to make this a Bible children can easily navigate and read on their own. 

Leader Guide (reproducible) SMP0422:
Through an engaging and interactive process, the guide uses the Understand It!, Live It!, and Tell It! sidebars to lead young people through the Bible.

Background materials, strategies, and activities are included to assist in the process of introducing children to Scripture. All materials included in the leader guide are reproducible.

Activity Booklet (reproducible) SMP1818:
The activities in this booklet are designed to be used with The Catholic Children’s Bible and encourage the children to look up and read the Scripture passage to complete the activity and to help create a life-long passion for Scripture.

Focusing on the forty featured stories in The Catholic Children’s Bible, the Activity Booklet offers two levels of activities for each story: Level One for younger children and Level Two for older children. This enables teachers and Catechists to have greater flexibility in creating lesson plans.

Each activity page offers a special feature called “Seek and Find,” which poses a search question to help engage children in the Bible and to springboard into further discussion about the Scripture story. All materials included in the activity booklet are reproducible.

NOTE: The Bishop's Conference of England and Wales has authorised the use of the Good News bible translation in masses with children Liturgy Office notification.
