My girls, ages 3.5 and 23 months, love sitting down and reading Bible stories, so we have been reading through this book for a couple weeks now. I love that each story is only 3 pages long (one double page layout and one single). It only takes a couple minutes to read, but we also sit and talk about the pictures and count items we see on the pages. A great book to engage your child and build language skills!
There are so many wonderful products out there for teaching young children about the Bible, and The Toddler's 123 Bible Storybook is one of these. It would make a fantastic birthday gift for any child, as well as a perfect baby shower or new baby gift!
I highly recommend this book and give it a huge thumbs up!
