There are a lot of resources to help introduce Bible stories to your little one, including actual beginner's Bibles and/or storybooks. The Adventure Bible for Toddlers is a happy mix of both!
ABOUT THE BOOK:
The Adventure Bible for Toddlers starts children ages 2-5 on the journey of a lifetime, teaching them about the Bible’s great stories and themes. It helps young children grow in their relationship with God using stories and art from the wildly popular Adventure Bible Storybook. With ten beautifully illustrated and beloved Bible stories from the Old and New Testament, this sturdy padded board book will stimulate toddlers’ minds and fill their hearts with love for their heavenly Father.
ABOUT THE AUTHOR:
Catherine DeVries is a writer and editor. She has been influential in the development of many bestselling children’s Bibles and Bible storybooks including The Adventure Bible, The Beginner’s Bible and the Jesus Storybook Bible. She is also the author of My Time with God and many articles that have been published in professional magazines and journals. Catherine lives with her husband and three children in Colorado.
What better way to introduce the Bible then through ten memorable stories? The graphics are magnificent, and did a wonderful job at striking my son's attention. He particularly loved the stories that included any type of animal. Each story in the Adventure Bible for Toddlers is short and sweet to keep the little ones intrigued. Bible tales covered include popular events such as Noah's Ark, Jonah, David and Goliath, The 10 Commandments, and Jesus' birth. I believe the author was going for a more child-friendly version of Jesus' life. In doing so, she omitted the crucifixion, but was sure to include His resurrection.
This is the second book that we've read from Catherine DeVries, and I must say I enjoy her literary works for children. Even though the book is made up of only ten Bible stories, it has a thick padded cover and board book pages, giving it the impression of an actual "big kid" Bible. The Adventure Bible for Toddlers will make a great little starter Bible for toddlers and preschoolers.
