When my oldest was very young, I used to sit in her bed with her each afternoon and read through her favorite books.
The one that most stands out in my mind was a well known author who writes books with simple story lines. His books are full of colorful, fun illustrations and simple sight words.
Courtney and I would sit for hours in the afternoon as she read the words she was seeing.
It was a sweet time of bonding for us, and she walked away with a sense of having done something big!
I will cherish those memories always.
This month, Tommy Nelson send me a copy of the Say & Pray Bible for review.
A soft-covered book with rounded edges, this little Bible is 40 pages in length.
Each two-page spread has a simple Bible story, Bible verse and short prayer. It also has easy sight words for toddlers and new readers.
There are many Bible stories including the following: Joseph’s Colorful Coat, Baby in a Basket, David Sings, Brave Queen Esther and Jesus Grows Up.
From the back of the book:
“Say and Pray the Bible with Your Little Ones!
Curl up together and experience the Bible in a fresh, new way. Young children will enjoy pointing to and naming objects on each page for early learning. Most important, they’ll discover favorite, age-appropriate Bible stories with Scripture verses and short prayers that also hide God’s Word in young hearts.”
I was given a copy of this toddler book in exchange for my review. I was not required to give a positive opinion- it is all my own!
