I am always searching for new material to read to my girls when it pertains to stories from the Bible. I do not know what system each family has with rotating books in their home, but I have to learn a way to bring in new books into our home. I somehow wondered if people have swapping parties and bring their old books to trade with other families. I personally think it would be an awesome thing to do.
A while back my mother-in-law gave our girls a whole set of Bible story book series written by Guideposts. We now have a good collection that the girls alternate choosing a story or two to read in the mornings or evenings. The have started memorizing the photos with the Bible story they have been hearing. It really is sweet.
We were recently at our pastor’s home for lunch and noticed he had a new book written by his friend who is also a pastor in Michigan. I loved seeing how colorful the cover was and thought it would be a good book for my girls. Needless to say I received a copy a short week later to review and was real happy!
In The Biggest Story, Kevin DeYoung – a best-selling author and father of six – leads kids and parents alike on an exciting journey through the Bible, connecting the dots from the garden of Eden to Christ’s death on the cross to the new heave and new earth. With powerful illustrations by award-winning artist Don Clark, this imaginative retelling of the Bible’s core message-how the Snake Crusher brings us back to the garden-will draw children into the biblical story, teaching them that God’s promises are even bigger and better than we think.
I loved seeing my oldest daughter thumb through the book, immediately recognizing Bible stories just by seeing the illustrations. They are so colorful and detailed that it really keeps the attention of the reader and the listeners engaged. The girls even pointed out their favorite colors on most of the pages and since the book is arranged in short chapters, one of them pointed out the numbers on each page in delight. What a great way to see how my toddlers are recognizing their numbers.
