Bible Review . . . my first Hands-On Bible!

I have had the opportunity over the years to review quite a number of Bibles for children. I'm happy today to share with you a new Bible for preschoolers . . . 

My First Hands-On Bible 
Publisher - Group/Tyndale
Ages 3+

Favorite Features -
  • Bible includes 85 Bible stories . . . I understand the ones they chose to include, but am somewhat baffled by the ones they did not include . . . for example, they begin - of course - with Creation and Adam and Eve, but stop with Adam and Eve sinning and covering themselves with leaves. They do not tell about God removing them from the garden, providing clothes for them and promising to send a Savior.
  • love the "How to Use My First Hands-On Bible" - great info will help parents know how to create a love for reading God's Word with their young children
  • I especially love the design - each Bible story has activities for children to do as the story is read and then finishes with questions for parents to help parents talk with their childrne about the Bible lesson, a fun activity to do with their children, a prayer and some end with a jesus Connection to help children see Jesus is the "center of Scripture"
  • colorful illustrations
  • New Living Translation for ease of understanding
If you are looking for a Bible to recommend to parents which they can use with their preschool children - and actually learn from, take a serious look at the my first Hands-On Bible! Be sure to encourage parents to use the discussion and activities so they can help their preschoolers learn God's Word is something they can understand and live in their everyday life every day!
