The Beginner's Bible is a great Bible story book that includes stories from Old and New Testaments. These stories are written to make it easier for younger children to understand. The age range that is listed on the back of the book is 4-8, which seems pretty accurate in our house. Brother Bear and Sister loved the colorful pictures and the stories were perfect for their comprehension levels. Popper was able to read it independently which is a great help when the younger two want a to hear a story and my hands are in dishwater. Plus, what mom doesn't love seeing moments like this one?!
We really enjoyed the amount of stories that are available! All of my favorite Bible stories written in a way that my kiddos can understand and grow to love!
They have also redone all of the artwork in the book to make it 3D! The kiddos and I really enjoyed the pictures. They were bright and colorful and the images seemed to really jump off the pages. It helped to draw my littles in. Sister is a huge fan of coloring and she really enjoyed pointing out all of the details and colorful images during the stories.
I am always looking for good quality Christian books for both the littles to look at and for me (or Popper) to read to them! I love that we now have this as an option. And while I will not let this take the place of actually reading the Bible to them, it is a fun supplement to the stories that provide pictures of the characters to help make it easier for them to comprehend! It was a great addition to our morning basket. We used it to reread our Bible story for the week.
One of my favorite things about this Bible storybook is that it lists the references from the Bible to the story right below the title. I am using this to help teach that we are to search out the truth for ourselves and make sure that we go to the source. The stories in this book were all accurate, but it is a great way to teach the kiddos because that is not always the case with every storybook.
Overall, this is a fantastic addition to our home library. I also think it will make a great birthday present for my nieces and nephew this year!
