This book is huge! I was not expecting it to be so big but was pleasantly surprised when I received a large package on my doorstep. The Read And Share 5 Minute Bible Stories book by Thomas Nelson Publishers is a hardcover book with a padded cover that is easy to wipe down just in case there is an accidental spill that occurs. Stories are taken from the beloved Read and Share stories for older readers and readjusted with bright and colorful pictures for little ones.
Meant to be read as a devotion by parents to children, your child will learn about Bible figures such as Noah, Joseph, David, Paul, and Jesus in a way that is easy to understand. When our children were little, under the age of five, we loved to read Bible devotions such as these to our kids. We now read the actual Bible in the mornings and memorize scripture at night as a family but there was a time where they simply weren't ready for that. This would have been a perfect addition to our devotional time! This book includes stories that are short and sweet which is great since little ones usually have a short attention span.
This book encourages scripture memorization, even at a young age! There are quick and easy activities throughout the book suggested as well so the parent and child and interact with the story and make the message memorable.
