From as far back as I can remember until age 10, my mom read a Bible story to the youngest four of her clan of nine children every night. We had two sets of books, but our favorite was the set of five. Each book had five stories in it. Some nights when my head hits the pillow now, years later, I can recall some of the phrases from those stories. One of the stories I remember almost word for word.
I’m guessing some of you are the same. Maybe it was a Sunday School teacher or your grandma or maybe you had one big book of Bible stories instead of a set like my family had. Regardless, you still smile when you read that story or the eyes of your children or grandchildren light up in pleasure over it.
My awesome friends at Tommy Nelson gave our family the privilege of previewing a HUGE book of Bible stories, aptly named, Children’s Favorite Bible stories. Each story is titled and contains the Scripture verses for where the story can be found in the Bible. The stories are color-coded: Beige for Old Testament and Blue for New Testament.
One of the really neat features of this book is the “Let’s Pray” section at the end of each story. A short verse and prayer provides the opportunity to reflect on the story. There is also a “Going Deeper” section which contains a Read It! and a Do It! item. This section is a fantastic way to get everyone in the family involved. Though designed for ages 6-12, my crew all the way down to the just-under 2 yr old listened and enjoyed.
Our family has really appreciated this book and we plan to read it all the way through. I’d love for one of you to have that same opportunity! So follow the Rafflecopter to enter the giveaway because I want to know:
