We always read bedtime stories to our kids when they were little. It was their favorite part of the bedtime routine. Now that they are older, we still read stories together from time to time but they usually do their own night time reading. We incorporate Bible reading as much as possible in our family. The new Read and Share 5 Minute Bible Stories book is a great way for you to do that in your family! I took the opportunity to review this book so we can use it with the kids at church from time to time.
This big book of short stories is hardback but with the soft, almost squishy feeling cover. From the first touch it will interest your toddler or little one. Inside they will find bright, colorful illustrations and over 90 stories from the Old and New Testaments. Each one is 2 pages, includes illustrations, has a Biblical reference, and ends with a thought or question. I've never been a fan of Bible stories for kids that stray from the original text and/ or add lots of imagined information. I feel like these stories stay pretty close to scripture and don't add a lot of fluff to the text. Each entry is presented in a way that will be interesting and easy to understand for your little ones.
My own big kids have had fun digging into the stories into these 5 minute stories. I can't wait to take it to church and share it with some of our younger kids on Wednesday nights. I think they will really love these fun, familiar stories! Take a sneak peek into the book.
