My First Hands-On Bible Review
Something that is very important to me is finding a great resource for Bible stories. I was absolutely thrilled to discover My First Hands-On Bible from Tyndale House especially designed for preschoolers. My son is almost 3 and he and I have a "Bible study" every day where we read from a Bible story book and memorize a Bible verse. My First Hands-On Bible is not only full of Bible stories, but it is a Bible. Yes, all stories are written using the New Living Translation (very clear and easy language to understand). There are 85 stories and each one has several activities within the narrative that will get your preschooler actively listening as well as moving and doing. There are also 2 games to play at the end of story. There is a Let's Talk section with 2 questions and an essential Jesus Connection which ties each story to Jesus. The two loveable characters, Pockets and Cuddles, encourage the children to take time to pray and take time to play. The illustrations are beautiful and the stories are just a few pages each, but packed with so much learning. Your kids will have a blast studying about Jesus.
My son was so excited to open our Bible every day to read and he especially liked Pockets, the kangaroo, who says, "It's time to pray!" I loved reading this Bible since it was a Bible! The activities throughout each story were varied and well scripted. You, as a parent, do not have to come up with anything at all to make the story come alive! This Bible does it ALL for you. I highly encourage you to take a look at this My First Hands-On Bible as a resource for leading your little ones through the Bible.
Shrade and I acted out the activity from Jericho's Falling Walls (Joshua 6).
