We bought the Action Bible (link) by Doug Mauss and Sergio Cariello this Summer and love it! It’s very well illustrated (like a comic) and the stories are translated well. Of course, they are shorter than the full stories, but that in itself helps for kids.
There are tons of kids’ books about Bible stories, this is all of them plus the rest. Each story tells you the section of the Bible it’s based on also in case you want to refer to the full story.
I highly recommend this Bible for kids (and adults) as a great and exciting way to read the Bible!
