My Thoughts on this little Bible!

Baby’s Little Bible, by Sarah Toulmin

I love Bibles of all kinds, and what a special little Bible to give as a give to a newborn! Because then is when we should start teaching our children about God.

In this Bible, the author chose some of the more known Bible stories for little ones. Some of those include: Creation; Noah and the Flood; David and Goliath; Jonah and the Whale; Daniel and the Lion’s Den; Jesus Feeding the Five Thousand; Jesus Calming the Storm; Jesus’ Death and Resurrection, plus a number of others.

The stories are very simple, and they do leave out important facts, but I think what the author is doing here is being as simple as possible for the young reader. When I am reading stories that are simplified like this, I always add what I think the child can understand, in a way they can understand.

The cover is very pretty, looks like something newborn. I recommend this book for your small child and encourage you to get a copy and start reading to your child as soon as they are born.

This book was provided by Kregel Publishers for me to read and review. I was not expected or required to write a positive review. The opinions in this review are mine alone
