Book Review: Bible Stories for Preschoolers


Book Description: Bible Stories for Preschoolers, written by a team of preschool church education experts, makes the Bible come alive for young children. The dynamic, high-energy, vibrant illustrations featured on every spread will capture children’s imaginations while giving them a lifelong love for God’s Word. In addition to the retellings, each story includes fun, easy activities that parents and kids can do together. The activities help kids remember and relate to the stories!

My Thoughts:  I love that it was written in a way that engages kids. In every story it has an element that asks the children questions within the story or to interact with the pages (like point to the star, or donkey). I also enjoyed the fact that at the end of every story there are a few questions that you can ask your child in order to help them understand the scripture better. The Best part - The Bible memorization verse uses language that children understand. That’s a big one for us!! (even though we don’t use this bible anymore, I still use these verses with my children!)
Things I didn’t like, the craft element at the end of each story, its good for some but we do our bible reading at night before bed. So the crafts were not so important, also I personally think that some children would focus more on the craft and not so much the learning of scripture. My biggest issues with the bible is that some of the stories have details that are not accurate with Scripture details. I’d rather have my children learn the scriptures right the first time than have to relearn it later. My kids could give or take this bible and we have reverted back to our favorite bible for bed time stories/scriptures.
