This four board book set is just fantastic. I love the big colorful pictures and the simple stories from the Bible that young children can understand and learn from. The Beginner’s Bible is so wonderful to teach and entertain your children. They will understand stories before they get old enough to understand the Bible and won’t forget what they have learned.
The four stories are:
Daniel in the Lions Den
The parable of the lost sheep
Jonah and the Whale, but have really neat name for the children to understand. Here’s a little about each story.
I highly recommend these sweet books for your precious child/grandchild/friend.
The Lion's Big Sleepover (and Daniel's Scary Night) is the story of how Daniel was put in the lions' den. It tells how Daniel prays and is protected by an angel, and it ends with the king wanting to tell others about Daniel's God.
Little Lamb's Big Scare (and the Shepherd's Great Care) is the parable of the lost sheep. The shepherd calls out the to the lost sheep to stop playing hide-and-seek, which helps bring it down to a child's level.
Fish's Big Catch (and Jonah's Second Chance) is the basic retelling of how Jonah disobeyed God's instructions to go to Nineveh and was swallowed by a big fish. Of course, in the end Jonah did obey.
Elephant's Big Ride (and Noah's Stormy Adventure) shares the story of Noah, focusing on the animals. It's a cute book, but I would have liked more of the biblical facts to be included because even a two year old can enjoy learning about 40 days and 40 nights.
