Great discussion book Jul 26, 2008
I purchased this book for my almost 5-year-old, and it has been a great discussion starter for our family! (My 2 1/2 year old also loves it) The stories are created for short-attention spans and include great practical questions about our every day life. My kids love the illustrations too. We have created a new family tradition by reading one story each evening after dinner or before bedtime. We love this book and it makes a great gift for 4-8 year olds!
great for the kids Jun 15, 2008
this bible is awesome for my children in the church. All of them enjoy this bible and want to learn from it every second they can and also the people who drew alladin, beauty and the beast, mullian and veggie tales did a awesome job drawing the pictures! A must have!
As expected Feb 14, 2008
The book is great for young kids. Isn't so elementary that it isn't challenging for kids. Not so challenging that it isn't easy to understand by kids.
Disappointed Feb 3, 2008
I teach Sunday school to pre-kindergarten classes, and have been disappointed each time I've tried to read Bible stories to the children from this book. It uses vocabulary that is not familiar to young children -- I often have to stop the story to explain a word or concept. This does not allow the stories to "flow" very easily for the young children.
Wonderful, beautiful book to inspire kids Feb 2, 2008
My daughter loves this book, and I was so excited to see her finally become enthusiastic about praying and reading Bible stories. This is the book that helped her truly understand God's importance in her life. The "Pray" and "Live" sections really bring the book to life, the questions throughout each Bible story ensure that the child understands and is thinking about the story, and the illustrations are lots of fun. When I adopted my daughter from foster care, she had had very little exposure to religion, and no positive exposure at all. Religion scared her and was unfamiliar. I tried various books and experiences, and while our church community helped her feel loved, My First Message was what really got her to feel a sense of God at work in the world. I am so grateful!
