Why Kaleidoscope?

Of all the books ever written, the most important one to get in our children’s hands is the Bible. As a parent, grandparent, or church leader, we know you appreciate biblical resources to help teach your children about God and His word. You may notice, however, that as kids grow in their reading ability, there is a huge gap between resources available for young children and full-length Bible translations (most of which are written at a high school level or higher). Biblical content for middle to late elementary children is severely lacking for families who long to enrich and deepen their children’s faith.

Kaleidoscope is here to create resources to help kids get excited about the Bible. We retell every book of the Bible, in beautifully designed single volumes, at an elementary level. Kaleidoscope is for every family who has struggled with the transition between storybook Bibles and an NIV, ESV, or NASB translation. Kaleidoscope is the transitional resource you’ve been looking for.

Kaleidoscope is a growing company with multiple writers, illustrators, and a vision to produce over 60 volumes by the year 2028. Tell your friends and family to spread the word. Together, we are reimagining kids’ Bibles so our children grow to know and love Jesus.

Meet the Founder

Hi, my name is Chris Ammen, and I’m the founder of Kaleidoscope. As a parent of four children under the age of 11, children’s pastor, and former educator (with a Bachelors and Masters in Elementary Education), I have come to understand many of the pain points experienced by fellow parents and church leaders. Kaleidoscope was borne from my own desire to provide quality discipleship resources for the children I shepherd. My hope is that Kaleidoscope will make its way into your homes and churches as we come alongside you to disciple the next generation of Christ-followers. Over the next 8 years, we will produce every book of the Bible in single volumes at a kid-friendly level while skipping over very little content. We hope you’ll try a volume or two and fill your bookshelves and your homes with the good news of the gospel.

Statement of Faith

The Scriptures

We believe the Bible, both Old and New Testaments, to be the verbally inspired Word of God, without error in the original writings, and the supreme and final authority in doctrine and practice.

The Trinity

We believe in only one living and true God, eternally existing in three equal persons – God the Father, Son and Holy Spirit. We believe God the Father reigns with providential care over His universe, His creatures, and the flow of human history according to His purpose and grace. All glory goes to Him. We believe the Lord Jesus Christ is the eternal, pre-existent Son of God, who for us and for our salvation became a man, died on a cross, rose from the dead and ascended to heaven to reign. We believe that God, the Holy Spirit, restrains evil, convicts of sin. He also regenerates, and indwells and empowers believers for service, and bestows spiritual gifts, sealing them for eternity.

Creation and the Fall

We believe that all things in heaven and on earth were created by God and exist by His power and for His glory. We believe that humanity was created innocent and in the image of God, but that we sinned, bringing both physical and spiritual death to ourselves and this world.


We believe that every person is lost in sin apart from Christ and in need of a Savior. We believe that salvation is a gift of God and is received by man only through personal faith in Jesus Christ. The full scope of salvation includes Justification, Sanctification, and Glorification.

The Church

We believe that the universal church, the Body and Bride of Christ, is made up of all true believers. We believe that the local, visible church is an assembly of professing believers in Jesus Christ who are voluntarily joined together in one body to worship, reach out and grow. We believe that Christ instituted the ordinances of believer baptism and the Lord’s Supper, which are to be observed by believers until He returns.


We believe that the gospel is the good news that the triune God has poured out his grace in the life, death, resurrection, and ascension of the Lord Jesus Christ, so that through his work we might have peace with God. Every person is lost in sin apart from Christ and in need of a Savior. Christ died in the place of sinners, absorbing the wages of sin, so that those who entrust themselves to him also die with him to the power, penalty, and (eventually) practice of sin. Christ was raised the firstborn of a renewed and restored creation, so that those whom the Spirit unites to him in faith are raised up and created a new humanity in him. One with Christ, and made alive in him, who is the only ground of salvation, sinners are reconciled with God – justified, adopted, sanctified, preserved and eventually glorified. The Gospel is personal in its content and cosmic in its scope; together with renewed humanity, the Gospel is God’s promise to one day renew all of creation.  

We reject prosperity gospel teaching.

Things to Come

We believe the Lord Jesus will one day return physically to earth in power and glory to complete what He began: graciously saving believers and bringing righteous judgment on non-believers. Our call is to make ourselves ready for that day!
