Book Review: My First Hands-On Bible
My First Hands-On Bible is a Bible especially for preschoolers. Usiung the New Living Translation, the My First Hands-On Bible illistrates key stories of the Bible in an easy to understand format. Included in the Bible are Hands On Activities, Prayers and Conversation Starters, and a “Jesus Connection”. With over 80 different Bible stories, children are lead through the Old and New Testaments.
I reviewed this book alongg with my 5 year old son. There are quite a few activity ideas so we chose ones that were more appropriate for his age. Some of the activities would be great for infants and toddlers, too. There are simple things like hand motions and there are more involved activities like creating things or exploring places. The little prayer at the end of each story is very simple and great for a toddler or an energetic preschooler! The stories are short and held my son’s attention and the pictures are colorful and fun. The pages are glossy and not too thin so that they would easily tear. This is important when you are planning to share this book often with your small child. Also, the cover opens easily so that you do not have to hold the book open when you get closer to the middle. This book would be a great investment for a growing preschool Christian!
