The fun-time, anytime read-aloud Bible rhyme! Boys and girls love the soothing rhyme in L.J. Sattagast's bestseller The Rhyme Bible. Now toddlers have a Bible rhyme book designed just for them! From the story of creation ('In the beginning God made the light. The light was for day. The dark was for night.') to the resurrection of Jesus ('All his friends were happy then. Jesus was alive again!'), this is the perfect choice for parents who want to introduce their toddlers to the Word of God. Joyful illustrations and classic stories told in vivid verse make this a sure favorite that will entertain your young ones and teach them biblical lessons that last a lifetime.
Despite the title of the book, this bible is NOT just for toddlers!
I have read this bible aloud to my children dozens of times over the years. Although the bible indicates on the back that it is suited for Ages 1-4, my younger daughter is eight years old and still enjoys it and we read it at least once a year! She is also at the age where she can pick up this bible and read the stories to herself. The bible stories are brief, and they are told in rhyming verse and I find that it engages the attention of any squirmy toddler! The illustrations fill both sides of the page, and they are bright and colourful. There are 12 stories from the Old Testament, and 14 stories from the New Testament.
Whenever anyone asks me what bible they should get for their young children, this is always my top recommendation and my go-to baby gift! I think it is a perfect first bible for any child.
