With the latest translations, the book will now be published in 152 languages. About 43 million copies of the childrens Bible have already been printed.

We want children all over the world to have access to the Bible, to be able to read and print Christian Scripture, said Maria Zurowski, family office director of Aid to the Church in Need. It was important for us to elaborate an instrument most suitable for a child.

All functions are explained by symbols, Zurowski added. The corresponding language is to be picked on a world map.
The first edition of the childrens Bible was launched in 1979.
