Baby Bible Board Books by Edward & Sarah Bolme A Review

Aimed at children aged 1-3, these four books teach essential stories of Jesus with delightful illustrations and simple, clear text. Each story also ends with a simple lesson to help your young soul love Jesus.

Authors: Edward and Sarah Bolme

Illustrator: Tim Gillette

ISBN: 0-9725546-4-5

ISBN-13: 978-0-9725546-4-5

Contents: Set of 4 board books

Each book measures 5" x 5"

Each story is twenty pages long, with an average of six words per two-page spread. The books feature bold, colorful illustrations and each ends with a simple faith lesson for the child to take to heart. Designed for infants and preschoolers.

Sarah Bolme is the Director of Christian Small Publishers Association (www.christianpublishers.net), the owner of Crest Publications, and the author of 7 books including the award-winning Your Guide to Marketing Books in the Christian Marketplace (www.marketingchristianbooks.com)and numerous articles.

A clinical social worker by education and experience, Sarah stumbled into the world of publishing after her two self-help books were published by a small publisher. Sarah and her husband, a fiction author, then collaborated on a set of board books for infants and toddlers after the birth of their children. After much thought and research, they decided to publish the project themselves. This decision led to the creation of Crest Publications and Sarah's journey into marketing.

Navigating the Christian marketplace began as a rather solitary learning experience for Sarah as no guide books or associations were available for marketing in this unique marketplace. After meeting and dialoging with other small and self-publishers marketing books in the Christian marketplace, it became clear that an organization was needed to provide assistance and information to new and emerging publishers. Christian Small Publishers Association (CSPA) was founded in January 2004 with Sarah Bolme as Director.

Sarah's passion is educating others to help them improve their situation whether that is helping them get unstuck in their lives through counseling, learning and applying Biblical truths, or marketing their books into the Christian marketplace.

I just love these four Baby Bible Board Books. The colors are delightful and just the right amount of words on each page. My 13 month old grandson doesn’t like to sit still for a minute, but he didn’t move as I read all four books to him. Another reasons I like these books is because the past and present are in each book. The people wear robes and sandals, but you will also see a football, thermometers and jump ropes. I also really like that at the end of the story you will see a Bible verse to reinforce the story. Another thing these books have that children love and it’s animals. Each story has many cute animals to provide another thing for your child to love.

The books are wipe able and very strong and sturdy, just right for little hands. It’s never to early to teach your children about the Bible and these books have some of the most favorite stories in the Bible. They are Jesus Stops a Storm, Jesus Heals a Little Girl, Jesus Feeds the People and Jesus Helps a Blind Man.

I highly recommend these four books that would be a prefect gift for your children, grandchildren or friends. What is so fantastic about them is you will be able to use, read them for years.
