Great way to teach your children Jul 25, 2008
If you're looking for a fun way to begin introducing your little one to scripture and application, this is great. I enjoy the songs and the little lessons. My only suggestion for future publications is that the song # be placed as a reference on the story page. As you can imagine, with the large number of songs, if you want to dive into the middle of the book and you don't know the corresponding song number, it's gonna take some effort to find it. I just wrote the #'s in myself so now it's a breeze. The music is energetic and fun and the lessons are well done. Enjoy!
thorough and non-violent Jul 22, 2008
There are many stories in here that don't usually make it into a children's Bible, such as Balaam and the Talking Donkey or Ezekiel and the Dry Bones. I'm very pleased with the selection!
More importantly, the text does an excellent job of carefully phrasing the violent parts of stories into something small children can understand (without being scared). Even Abraham's sacrifice of Isaac is taught without the words "kill" or "die" or even "sacrifice." But even with the simplification, the renderings are perfectly accurate.
I personally find the CDs rather annoying, but they're not made for adults.
Just right for 2-3 year olds May 29, 2008
I'd been looking for a children's Bible that my son could really understand (he recently turned 2). This one has brief stories that his attention span can cope with. At the end of each story, there is a review statement (observation), a statement making the story relevant to today's life (interpretation), and an application statement ("I will pray to God", "I will obey God", etc). Although it's simple enough for my son to understand, my almost 4-year-old daughter enjoys listening as well, and the 3 concluding statements trigger great questions from her. We listen to the CDs in the car, and the songs are great for reinforcing ideas from the stories. I'm glad I found this book, it works really well for both my children.
The Best for Toddlers! Apr 11, 2008
This is absolutely the best bible story devotional for toddlers that I have seen, and I've looked at a lot. I love the application sentences that are short and easy to understand and memorize. The kids LOVE the songs, and can now sing them even when the CD isn't playing, which I love, because they're memorizing biblical truths in song! The pictures are entertaining, and the stories are just the right length for the toddler's attention span (although we usually read 2 or 3 in a sitting). This is DEFINITELY worth buying!
Good idea - not a good execution Mar 24, 2008
I bought this book to use in conjuntion with a sunday school lesson that we teach for 3-4 year olds. The index does not allow you to figure out which of the songs relate to a particular bible story.
My main gripe - the CD's were packaged in vinyl envelopes on the inside of the front and back covers of the book. The CD's has chemically reacted to the vinyl and would not play ont he CD player. After some cleaning I was able to remove some of the haze but not completely.
