My 1st Hands-On BibleBold Blue The imitation leather cover is soft (and smells good). Pockets (the kangaroo) and Cuddles (the lamb) are embossed on the front, ready to guide your little one through the 85 (true) Bible accounts that are between the covers. Each page high quality, heavy weight paper with fun illustrations great for little hands and eyes.
One of my favorite parts about the My First Hands-On Bible is that the text is the real Biblical text! The scriptures are abridged to some extent but they are not paraphrased. It is so important for children to learn that the Bible is true, the inspired Word of God. (1 Timothy 3:16)
As you read each passage, youll notice little handprints in various places. The handprints coordinate with a little note on the side of the page. Each note is an idea for an activity that you can do with children as the story is read. Ive used this particular Bible when Im teaching preschoolers, stopping at each handprint to complete the activity, they have such a fun time being creative and using their imaginations.
At the end of each passage there are several discussion questions, activities, and prayer ideas to do with children, practically connect what was just read. The Jesus Connection helps children connect Jesus to every Biblical passage, even if He isnt specifically mentioned. For the price of $19.99 I believe the My First Hands-On Bible is a terrific investment for the little ones in your life.
Tyndale House Publishers has provided me with a complimentary copy of this book in exchange for my honest review.
This hands-on Bible mirrors a real Bible so now children as young as preschoolers can feel special when going to church. Gone are the simple illustrations and big bolded words. Now everyone in the family can belong in a Bible-carrying family.
My First Hands-On Bible is a fun and simple, yet meaningful way to engage preschool, prekindergarten, and kindergarten children
(ages 36) with the Bible while helping them build a solid faith foundation. Each lesson focuses on a specific Bible point through a variety of activities in order to reinforce and help young children remember the stories and lessons. Using common household items, you can help your children have a hands-on learning experience while engaging them in 85 key stories from the Bible.
My First Hands-On Bible doesnt just retell the Bible stories; it also includes actual Scripture from the easy-to-understand and easy-to-read Holy Bible, New Living Translation. In addition to the stories and activities, there are fun illustrations, prayers, and a special Jesus Connection feature.
My First Hands-on Bible: Pretty Pink Deluxe Edition is an adorable Bible which is sure to have your little one feeling very grown up with their grown up Bible! It features a bright pink, soft imitation leather cover with the two adorable little animals on the front. The Bible itself is an NLT version, so little ones can easily understand what they are reading. It is approximately 8.5" by 5.5" inches, which seems like a perfect size for little hands. My 3 year old enjoys just picking it up and carrying it around with her or putting it in her bag.
The stories are short and easy to understand. Sometimes I will tell my 3 year old two or three stories at a time and she is able to sit through them. Each Bible story includes a prayer and colorful illustrations.
I think this is a great option for a child's first Bible. My oldest daughter had the first version of this Bible a few years ago (which we still have). It is very similar to this Bible here and we love them both. Just a great Bible all around. Perfect size, illustrations are wonderful, and the message if very clear. I would highly recommend it!
I received a copy of this book/Bible in exchange for my honest unbiased opinion.
We are loving this Bible. I appreciate that it uses actual NLT text, not paraphrasing or stories. My son is nearly 4 and ready for a little more. Each 2-3 page passage includes several points to stop and do an activity to keep the children interested and engaged. The activities generally require only yourself or an object you within immediate reach ("jump up", "blow like the wind" "form a rainbow with your finger"). It's great! There's also a Jesus Connection at the end of each passage so that the whole Bible is pointing to Jesus in an obvious way. This is especially helpful after sections like the Fall. I highly recommend this Bible for kids 3-6!
