The Beginner's Bible ~ a TOS review

Welcome back! Today I am excited to share with you my first review product for the 2017 review year. Let’s get started.

Have you heard that there is a newly updated The Beginner’s Bible from Zonderkidz? Yes! It’s brand spanking new and has been updated to celebrate the 25th anniversary since the first publication with some pretty great features including new stories and visually stunning three-dimensional pictures that seem to just pop off the page. The book is printed on heavy weight paper which is perfect for tiny hands. With over 500 pages this hardcover book includes over 90 stories {48 from the Old Testament and 46 from the New Testament} of both old and new Bible stories. With all these features it's no surprise that The Beginner's Bible was named the 2006 Retailers Choice Award winner in Children's Nonfiction.

This book is recommended for ages 4-8, but I find this book is perfect for my two year old son. Each of my girls has a Bible of their own and he has been wanting a Bible too. When we were offered the chance to review this new Bible I knew this would be the perfect gift to include in my son’s stack of books he receives at Christmas. When Micah opened his Bible on Christmas Day he was so excited and he squealed with joy. It was priceless!

As with previous editions, the stories in this Bible are short and sweet, yet they still keep the original story intact at a childlike level. The stories are the perfect length for young children who normally don’t sit still for very long. Each story is given a title and a scripture reference. One of my favorite features is the dictionary that is included in the back of the book. It is a comprehensive listing of the italicized words that you may need a little more clarification on. The words are defined in short, easy to understand definitions.

We were first introduced to this children's Bible nearly 8 years ago as we began our homeschool journey. This Bible was included as part of Madison's 2nd grade Language Arts reading program. Since then, I have had two more children read through this bible during their second grade year with great success. I am so excited to have McKenzie and Micah use this new updated version when their time comes. To get a closer look at some of the changes check out the old edition vs the new version. The Table of Contents also received an updated look and it is more reader friendly.

In our house we read and study our Bibles during our Morning Time Recitations {MTR}. Now that Micah has his own Bible he is able to sit as quietly as he can and "read" his Bible as we do our daily lessons. I normally sit with him either at the beginning or the end of our MTR and let him pick a story to read aloud to him. You can usually find us snuggled up on the couch under a warm blanket now that the weather has turned cooler. This special one on one time is priceless and Micah and I look forward to it each day. We normally have my older girls listening in too so its really a family affair.

I can't recommend this book to you enough! It makes the perfect gift if you are looking to give a special someone their first Bible. I know we will have many years of enjoyment with this Bible and I look forward to sharing it with my son and daughters. Don't just take my word for it of how great this book is.
