The Picture Smart Bible Giveaway

Hi readers! I am really excited to try out a new Bible curriculum this year. It’s The Picture Smart Bible and I love the detail that they’ve put into this program and my kiddos absolutely love drawing their way through the bible! So I’m hoping this will be a great fit for us!

What is The Picture Smart Bible?

For those of you who don’t know, The Picture Smart Bible is a curriculum that teaches all of the book of the Bible in illustration form. Each Bible book has its own full page illustration sheet with the exception of some of the shorter books that have been combined.

It also comes with a time line as well as maps to help students grasp the lesson further.

They currently offer New Testament and Old Testament lessons, and you can get them individually or as a set. They also come in CD, download, and printed formats so you have a lot of buying options!

They even have a K-3 edition which are a bit simpler drawings for your little ones.


How I set it all up…

I received the printed version for review, then made copies of the student pages for my kiddos. I put all of the teacher’s lessons into a binder, then had my student materials spiral bound at a local office supply store.

I thought it would be a great way to keep their lessons all together, as well as be able to review books as needed.

Plus when we’re done, they’ll each have their own illustrated Bible!




The Teacher’s Manual comes with scripted lessons as well as a completed student sheet so you have an idea of what it should look like. Each step of the lesson also has a small image to let you know which section of the drawing your student should be working on.



The Student Pages come with traceable outlines so no one has to worry about being a great Artiste! For each lesson section, students will trace a certain area of the page and color it in. After looking at the lessons, we will split them up and do 1 lesson per week. I don’t want to rush them through the lessons just to get done, but I’d rather have them take time and learn the material, as well as have time to color in their artwork.



Since I have a kindergartener this year, I gave her the teacher’s manual pages so she’s not having to worry about tracing over confusing lines. So her book (right) is already drawn and all she has to do is color in her images. The other kiddos got the normal student pages (left) and will trace the color their work.



We will also be incorporating their Learning the Word for Life series of books. The intention is to use these books to help memorize key verses from The Picture Smart Bible lessons. As you progress through the lessons you’ll see the books referred to as a key memory verse. Each book has illustrations and the verse to help students memorize verses through visual queues, as well as their own dialogue with God sheet where they can journal.

There are three books in the series:

  • “Foundations” – Key verses from the lessons for memorization
  • “Bread for the Wilderness” – Relating to key issues in life (anger management, self-esteem, etc.)
  • “God, Your Real Dad” – To help students develop an intimate relationship with God.



Since we are just starting this curriculum, I’ll be posting a more thorough review of it a bit later on.

But I wanted to do a giveaway for you so you can get started right away!

    This curriculum looks like it would be very fun to learn for my Kindergartener. She loves Awana & loves learning Bible stories and The Picture Smart Bible woukd be perfect for her to use along with your K4 curriculum that I’m using this year !!!! Thanks for sharing and offering the giveaway :))

  11. Lynn Ashburn says:

    My girls love to color and this would really make the bible come alive for them!

  12. Very interested! Have never heard of this before. I am wondering how it would go over with older kids, though. Is there too much already “pre-drawn” for them????

  13. Katherine says:

    Pictures are always helpful for getting the concepts down. This looks like it could be really neat!

  14. I love how this gives kids an overall “big picture” approach to the scriptures! Awesome!

  15. What a wonderful way to reinforce lessons from Scripture! Besides hearing it read and seeing a few pictures, I believe this curriculum can really help more kids understand the Word.

  16. I am excited about this product! This would be great for our homeschool!

  17. I love how my kids will be able to “see” the Bible not just read it. It would be great for visual learners.

  18. This looks great! The coloring should make it interactive for my little ones.

  19. My girls love doing bible themed crafts- so I am curious to see if this would give them the same joy without as much time put in in planning and execution. It looks like something the whole family can enjoy and learn from together.

  20. Brandi Badgett says:

    The K-3 looks like it would be fun for all our kiddos, since the oldest is in 3rd grade now!

  21. I think this curriculum looks great. I’d love to try it.

  22. Looks awesome!

  23. I love keeping hands busy while brains are listening!! What a fun way to see your progress through the Bible.

  24. I like that young children can trace and participate!

  25. Wow! I wish they had had this curriculum when I was growing up. It would’ve helped me remember many of the stories I heard.

  26. This looks like a great Bible curriculum to do with my kids!!

  27. I like that it uses many learning styles-listening, seeing, doing (kinesthetic) The more senses you use, the more you remember. And what’s better to remember than God’s word? Love that it spans many ages too!

  28. I have had the Picture Smart Bible on my wish list for 2 years now but it just hasn’t been in the budget for us to purchase it. I would love to be able to use the program with my kids!!!

  29. I first saw Picture Smart Bible at a Homeschool conference and have wanted to try it. I don’t have any friend using it to get some information from! So glad you are doing it!

  30. I like that it incorporates Bible history, geography, doctrine, important verses and major themes of each Bible book in an easy kid AND parent-friendly format. With three kids at home I am all about user-friendly! Thanks again Erica.

  31. I saw this at our Convention this year and thought it looked super cool!

  32. This is a great curriculum that really works for all ages!

  33. I have been looking and looking for a good bible curriculum! This looks perfect! Thank you so much for the review!

  34. This looks like a great thing to start after we finish grapevine!

  35. I can’t believe school begins in a couple weeks for us and I still don’t have everything quite ready to go. I think adding grapevine to our schedule would be a great addition. Since all of my kiddos are younger, I think this bible curriculum will keep this engaged. Looking forward to reading more about grapevine.

  36. Kristin C says:

    I hadn’t heard of this before and it looks like something my kids would really enjoy! Thanks for sharing!!

  37. I think my girls would love this! It looks very engaging and a good way for younger students to learn the Bible.

  38. I like that my children will have an interesting way of learning and memorizing God’s word.

  39. Kirsten P says:

    I like how this can be used to go through the whole Bible with even Pre-K so they can start to soak up so many stories and get a great overview of the Bible. The visuals are great!

  40. I had heard of the Picture Smart Bible but hadn’t realized they had added two additional books to the series. Definitely a unique approach to getting the overall picture of the Bible.

  41. I like that it comes as one set and works for all ages. I also like that they have a younger version.

  42. I think that this curriculum looks like it could be fun for the kids. It looks like something that my daughter would really enjoy doing. I am definitely going to keep this one on the list of possibles when needed.

  43. It looks like fun, especially for kids who are creative. It sort of reminds me of Bible Study Guide for All Ages – which my kids loved. Might have to consider this as an option in coming years.

  44. I would love to try this! Thanks for sharing. I had never even heard of this before.

  45. I love that it can be adapted for younger children, as I have a kindergartner and a second grader this year.

  46. Priscilla Staley says:

    Would love to try this out!!
