BIBLE Picture Book Series

Japan Bible Society has publish 36 Bible Picture Books for children, one book per month for three years, completing in March 2011. The two artists who drew the pictures of the Old and the New Testaments are Japanese, Mr Shiro Fujimoto (OT) and Ms. Sachiko Sugita (NT) . The stories are all in Japanese.

Bible Picture Books have adopted the ON-PITSU technology (read the description below) . This is suitable for small children who cannot read yet.

  ON-PITSU âˆ� Amazing Device!

The Bible Picture Book series can be read with ON-PITSU. Each scene of our picture books has a small grey square (target) with page number on the right page below. By only touching the target with this pencil-shaped device, you can listen to the story of the scene. The quality of the sound is equal to that of MP3.


The picture books come with the Bible description pages at the end so that parents can explain to the children what the story is about as well as its cultural and historical background.
