Speaking of illustrated children's Bibles, the Jewish Publication Society just put out a new one that's quite good, based on the flawed but invaluable JPS Bible. My 4-year-old girl is enjoying the stories (with some slight editing by her reader), the bloodier the better. Samson is the current favorite. The illustrations aren't particularly distinguished but the retellings are solid and there's an attempt in the back to explain the principles behind the author's (limited) expurgations.
