Score: 94/100 (9.4 out of 10)
If the past several contests have taught us anything, it's not to judge a book simply by its cover or its illustrations. You need to look at the total picture. So, yes, the illustrations in this book may be sub-optimal or simplistic, but they're still bright, colorful, positive, and accommodate the tone and message of the book.
An ABC Bible Adventure is a solid Christian children's book. It's a great way to introduce your children (or even new English speakers) to the concepts in The Bible, discussing some of the key figures like God, Jesus, Daniel, Noah, and Moses.
It is a respectful and fundamentally/theologically-sound book. Protestants and Catholics alike can find common ground, finding little to no fault in it.
There is a surprising amount of emphasis on obeying and listening to parents, but it is what it is. That's a message that parents obviously want their kids to take away. However, there are times when it seems over-the-top.
Anyway, this book is very well organized, as you might expect from an ABCs book. The choice of words used for these ABCs are actually quite good. We have no complaints. Sure, words like “zeal” might be big for children, but what else are you going to put there?
Now, there are times when the illustration style seems inconsistent. There are times when human characters have detailed facial features and other times when they're essentially a step up from stick figures. This minor issue is apparent on pages like the letter K page in which some figures have fully detailed eyes while others just have dots. There are times, like on page 22, when characters are proportional; yet there are times, like on page 21, when they're pretty much caricatures.
Overall, this book has a very Infographics or Thought Bubble-like appearance.
It delivers the powerful and significant message of Christianity including God's love and hopes for mankind (like kindness).
