The Baby Bible Christmas Storybook: Book Review

About The Book:


An Interactive Christmas With Your Infant

David C Cook’s The Baby Bible Storybook series offers a set of interactive teaching tools for parents to use with their children, from birth to three years old. The latest addition to this series, The Baby Bible Christmas Storybook, makes the birth of Jesus relevant for very young children through the use of colorful pictures, basic prayer and worship, and fun physical activities. It is never too early to introduce the truth of God’s Word to children, and the Christmas Storybook will enhance a child’s earliest experience of this very special family celebration.

Simple actions such as pointing to a specific facial feature or hand claps enable parents to have fun with their child while telling the Christmas story. Each story is brief and well-suited for short attention spans, and the small size of the books is perfect for little hands. Actions that accompany the story combine with simple vocabulary to make this series even more appropriate for very young children. Christmas Storybook introduces the idea of prayer and worship as part of the child’s daily life while also allowing parents to share the powerful truth of God’s Word.

Christmas Storybook would make a wonderful gift for new parents or serve as a memorable birthday or shower gift. This book would also be appropriate for use in church nurseries or church day-care facilities by creating teachable moments that are centered around events found in the Bible.

Teaching Bible stories can be a vital part of your infant’s early years with The Baby Bible Storybook series from David C Cook. The Baby Bible Christmas Storybook will soon become a favorite activity to be included in any family’s Christmas celebration

My Review:

I often wondered how I would teach my children Bible Stories right from toddler age and up. Well, the Baby Bible Storybook Series has been a welcome addition to our home library. With wonderful illustrations that bring the Bible to life for toddlers, I also love the little activities that promote quality time with your child. My two year old loves the Christmas Storybook, and we have read a few different versions of the Christmas Story, so that her four year old sister will go through the book and "read" it to her. I not only cherish the time this book gives me with my girls, but I love that it is also encouraging some awesome together time for siblings!

If you are looking for a fun and interactive way to tell the Christmas Story to even the youngest of God's children, then I highly recommend you pick up a copy of Robin Currie's The Baby Bible Christmas Storybook today! You will not regret it!
