Summary taken from Goodreads:
My First Hands-On Bible is the preschooler version of the popular Hands-On Bible, which has sold over a half million copies. Jesus taught with hands-on lessons and illustrations; My First Hands-On Bible uses the same experience-based learning to communicate God’s Word in an active, understandable way. My First Hands-On Bible is a fun and simple yet meaningful way to engage preschool, pre-K, and K children (ages 3-6) with the Bible while helping them build a solid faith foundation. Each lesson focuses on a specific Bible point through a variety of activities in order to reinforce and help young children remember the stories and lessons. Using common household items, you can help your children have a “hands-on” learning experience while engaging them in 85 key stories from the Bible. My First Hands-On Bible doesn’t just retell the Bible stories; it also includes actual Scripture from the easy-to-understand and easy-to-read Holy Bible, New Living Translation. In addition to the stories and activities, there are fun illustrations, prayers, and a special Jesus Connection feature.
I am a big fan of this book. At night my son and I read stories together before I put him to bed. We are just about to finish up our current book and I am really looking forward to reading this one with him.
I really enjoy how the book is laid out. Each bible story is 2 to 3 pages long, with bright and colorful illustrations. Each story is followed by a discussion question, and idea of an activity to do with your child, and another activity of how to act out the meaning behind the story.
This would be a great bible for any preschool age child- it is a lovely book for a gift, or for a child to read with his/ her family.
