4 Stars Out Of 5
Instill godly truth in your preschoolers!
March 27, 2013
Filled with warm and colorful illustrations, and featuring all of your preschooler's favorite Bible stories, The Preschooler's Bible is a wonderful option for you to introduce to your children aged 3 to 5. My own children love looking through the beautiful illustrations accompanying the stories, especially enjoying how the illustrator has depicted Jesus, both as a child and as an adult. The stories are written in simple language that children will easily follow, and I especially enjoyed how the author would often add a question into the story, one that draws the children into the events that are happening. For example, in the story of Jesus feeding the 5000, the story starts with a question of "How would you like to make lunch for 5,000 people? That's a lot of lunch, isn't it?" Parents who pause in the story to actually allow their children to answer the questions will find that their children are really connecting with what is being read to them. The stories are also written in such a way as to leave the little listener with a take-away truth,such as teaching children that God will help us when we need him (such as in the story of Samson), or the importance of thanking God (such as in the story of the 10 lepers where only one returns to thank Jesus for healing them). What I most love about this children's Bible is that it clearly depicts Jesus' work on the cross, when he died to take away our punishment, out of his great love for us. Children can listen to the stories and come away with a solid beginning understanding of God's amazing love and power and grace. What more could a parent ask for?
If you are looking for a children's Bible that will both entertain your children while teaching them godly values and truths, then consider The Preschooler's Bible. You will be glad you did! 4.5 out of 5 stars.
