I have read and looked through many children's Bibles since becoming a parent, and I can honestly say that this is my favorite one so far. Every Christian parent longs to impart God's wisdom to their little ones, to interest them in the things of God in a way that both teaches and entertains. My Favorite Bible succeeds at both! The pictures are simply adorable and my children can't get enough of looking at them. The actual Bible stories are easy for them to understand and held their attention. And what I loved most is that at the end of each story are two sections called "Family Talk" and "Family fun" that provide some great questions for the children that engage them, and some truly fun activities as well. For example, my family read the parable of the lost lamb, and then proceeded to play a version of hide and seek where we took turns being the "Good Shepherd" and going off to find the scattered sheep! My kids had a blast, and won't soon forget this valuable lesson.
I highly recommend this children's Bible and give it 5 out of 5 stars.
Put this one on your Christmas list! You won't regret it.

My Favourite Bible - Rondi DeBoer and Christine Tangvald
This colorful and dynamic gospel-centered Bible storybook guides children through the foundational truths of Scripture. Each story is fully and vividly illustrated and includes a simple narrative with things children ages 4â€”8 love - repetition and rhythm, along with a key biblical theme, a key Bible verse, an activity page, and discussion questions.
I read the Christmas story from this book to my 1-3 class and they were fully engaged, because the simple text was easy for them to understand and the story was the right length for their short attention spans. The simply illustrated pictures enhance and go well with the stories. Furthermore, the suggested activities after each story are easy and enjoyable for any small child. I especially appreciate the small size of this book - just right for little hands! It's obvious that the author and illustrated created this book, knowing full well what young children need and love. I would recommend â€˜My Favourite Bible' to any family with little ones!
