Holiday Gift Guide Day 8: Bible Stories For Preschoolers

About The Book:

Bible Stories for Preschoolers, written by a team of preschool church education experts, makes the Bible come alive for young children. The dynamic, high-energy, vibrant illustrations featured on every spread will capture children’s imaginations while giving them a lifelong love for God’s Word. In addition to the retellings, each story includes fun, easy activities that parents and kids can do together. The activities help kids remember and relate to the stories!

Bible Stories for Preschoolers is authored by Monika Kustra, adapted by Betty Free Swanberg, and illustrated by Andrzej Chalecki.

My Review:

Bible Stories for Preschoolers is a wonderful way to teach the Bible to children as young as three. With absolutely adorable, brightly colored illustrations, very easy to read (perfect for a new reader to practice their skills) selections from the Bible, and awesome discussion questions at the end of each story for families to talk about, Bible Stories for Preschoolers is a Children's Bible that should be in your home.

 Each Bible story is also complete with a section of activities for families to do together and a memory verse to learn.  One of our favorite activities was called "The Houses" and it used sand, water and interlocking blocks to reinforce the store of the Wise and Foolish Builders. The song, "The Wise Man Built His House" is one of my children's favorites, so it was great to read the Bible Story, do the activity and add some singing time into our Bible time as a family. The activities are very easy to implement and can easily be adapted for the age of your children. Each story is three pages and though there are a lot of words, we just adapted it to suit the needs of our family (with a three and five year old, attention spans definitely vary)

We have several children's Bibles in our home but I feel that Bible Stories for Preschoolers is by far the most interactive and feel that it reinforces Bible principles in a fun, engaging manner. 

Bible Stories for Preschoolers is the perfect Christmas gift for the preschooler in your life!

I highly recommend this book and give it a huge thumbs up!
