It’s very important to Scott and I that we share the joy and wonder of the Lord and His Word with our children. Our daughter Kaelyn is 19 months old and although young, has already been exposed to a number of things to help shape her understanding of God. Whether it be the music she listens to, the television shows she watches or the things we talk about…we are always doing our best to instill in her these values and beliefs. Her favorite book is actually her Bible, or “bibi” in her words. Even at such a young age she enjoys learning and hearing the stories of the Bible.
That’s why I was SO excited to have had the opportunity to receive a copy of 100 Bible Stories, 100 Bible Songs from Thomas Nelson Publishers to review! I knew that as much as she loves her Bible…she’d adore this and all it has to offer….and I was right! It includes 100 Bible Stories that are introduced in a kid-friendly way as well as two CD’s filled with 100 Bible Songs…all of which are very catchy!
What I think is so great about 100 Bible Stories, 100 Bible Songs is the way it was made. I appreciate having a kid-friendly way to introduce our children to the Bible in a way that’s meaningful to them. I really liked the way it was laid out. Each story references the chapter and verses from the Bible, and has a one-sentence summary from the passage as well as an application statement. What a wonderful way to introduce your little one to scripture and application! I really look forward to spending many hours with our daughter, reading these stories and singing the songs together. Kaelyn especially loved the colorful illustrations that went along with each story! Although the publishers recommend this Bible Storybook for preschool age children, I think it was great even for my one year old! She enjoys every minute of reading the stories and listening to the songs… it’s never too early to share the Word of God with your children!
