We are keeping up our habit of promoting a book of the month.
For April, it is “The Beginner’s Gospel Story Bible” by Jared Kennedy. It is available on Amazon, or (for cheaper) at wtsbooks.com.
This is a great resource for family worship with young children, aged 2-5. Fifty-two chapters cover the highlights of both the Old and New Testaments while keeping Christ at the center from the very beginning. The lessons are short (6 brief pages), feature colorful full-page illustrations, have ways to engage children (i.e. “Can you count [Joseph’s] brothers?”), and include scripture references.This story Bible is strongly doctrinal but has simple writing for children and interactive questions to keep them engaged. Read it over-and-over to your kids, even before they can understand, and they will begin to assimilate the foundational stories and principles of scripture that, by God’s grace, will bear good fruit in your children’s lives.
