A Bible for Pre-Readers (Giveaway Included)


Not so long ago I was teaching my two to read. It was always a struggle to find books that were easy to read but more than just a few words. Both kids progressed past the phonic books, and it seemed like we were always looking for something for them to read that wasn't quite a chapter book. I wish we had The Look and Tell Bible back then! This latest review item is just right for 3-6 year olds that are starting their own reading journey.

What a better place to start than with the Bible? This large hardback book is sure to catch your little one's eyes with its appealing illustrations. The 23 pages are made of shiny board book material so there's no worries about rips or tears. The Look and Tell Bible begins with the story of creation. It uses a mixture of words and pictures to tell the story. Next come the stories of Noah, Joseph, Moses, David and Goliath, and Daniel. Each of these includes one page of key words with large illustrations and then a page long story. You can see a great preview here. Your little one will also get the stories of the birth of Jesus, the feeding of the 5,000, the Good Samaritan, and Easter. 

This big boardbook hits the highlights of the Bible to share the Good News with your youngest children. The shiny pages and bright illustrations will keep them interested in the tales. If they are beginning to read, a book like this will help them gain confidence as they work through familiar stories with the mix of words and pictures. What a great gift this would be!

  3. Mine is to make sure they are not hungry or sleepy when trying to teach them. If my daughter is either of those things her attention span is zero and sounding out letters is impossible for her :)

  4. Read aloud LOTS and LOTS to them from infancy so they are familiar with books,covers, left-to-right reading, holding books right side up, hearing good vocabulary, etc.
