Read and Share Toddler Bible
The Wee Wonder and I have been enjoying the Read and Share Toddler Bible we received from Thomas Nelson publishers. She really likes the fun pictures and simple stories, and I like how short the stories are - no losing her attention while telling the story of Moses, or Noah, or... you get my drift! Plus, whenever a story is shorter than her interest, she instructs me to read the next one. She uses the pictures to take us to her favorite stories when she wants to hear a particular story again (they usually involve babies, typical little girl that she is!). She is proud to have her very own Bible, since everyone else in the house has their own, and she calls me to read it to her often.
The Read and Share Toddler Bible also comes with a DVD of an hour of short bible story videos. All of my children enjoy watching those. The older children know a bunch of the stories, and the video is a great way to "tie it all together" - which children really love to do!
The only downside to this Bible for us is it's size - it isn't large, it is just larger than some children's Bibles - and really, a good Bible is generally over-sized, so we are a bit used to that! The Wee Wonder just likes to take her own Bible to church with her like everyone else does, and it is a bit heavy for her to handle for very long. Overall, this is a great addition to the many "stages" of Bibles we have around here, and I am blessed to have been able to share it with my children. I recommend this Bible to anyone looking for a children's Bible that will be appropriate and interesting to children between the ages of 2 and 6 (because new readers also like simple, short stories, I think this Bible would still be of interest after the toddler years).
