I’ve been reading this to my four-year-old daughter every night. She absolutely loves it. There are more stories in this story Bible than in any others we have read and it is actual text from the New Living Translation Bible, so it’s not a paraphrase that someone else wrote. I love that she is getting Bible stories from the actual Bible text.
Another thing we both really love about this Bible is that throughout each story there are suggested activities to help children understand and remember the story better. For example, in the story of Noah’s Ark, after you read to your child about all of the animals that were placed on ark, there is a little section that asks the child to walk like an elephant, hop like a kangaroo, and run like a deer. My daughter loves doing these activities and feels like part of the story. There are usually about five or six different ways that the child can experience the story in this way. There are also suggested crafts, outdoor exploration, “The Jesus Connection” that shows how each story is related to Jesus’ life, and a prayer that go along with each story.
This is a wonderful Bible for preschoolers. I give it five stars! And so does my daughter!
Thank you Tyndale for providing this book for my review.
