The Preschooler's Bible by V. Gilbert Beers Book Review and Giveaway!!


The Preschooler's Bible by V. Gilbert Beers is an exciting new way to share God's Word with preschoolers (age 4-5).  There are 101 stories written to the learning level and attention span of a preschooler with beautiful, high quality art.  This Bible is written so a preschooler can connect with the simple language and also gives opportunity for the parent and child to interact with the stories.  The heart of this author shines through the goal for this Bible "to grow children God's way to help them become God's people."  Children grow spiritually in three ways- believe, become, behave.  We want children to learn to accept God's teaching and love it!  We want them to have roots in Jesus and embrace his character traits in their lives.  And when they start to believe and become who God wants them to be, they will learn to behave in a Christ-like way.  This only happens with consistent and loving exposure to God's Word.  A great feature of this Bible iare the lessons  and character values your child will learn as you teach them with intention.  Take time to review the stories with your child and teach the lessons from the stories that will bring the story close to your child's heart.  There is an appendix section in the back of the Bible listing all the lessons and values.

The Preschooler's Bible is absolutely amazing and very friendly for a preschooler to share with a parent.  I enjoyed the short, simple stories that clearly share God's Word in meaningful ways.  My son and I really enjoy sitting down and reading this Bible together and discussing the story and pictures.  I look forward to taking a deeper look with the stories through the lessons and values outlined at the back of the Bible.  I'm so excited to share God's Word with my child so that he will come to know God better and be drawn to Him in amazing ways.

*I was given a complimentary copy of this Bible in exchange for my honest review.*

This review reminds me that it needs to be important. We joined youth group for the first time last month so now we have youth group homework in addition to regular school homework. I'm praying this book can work into our regular reading time! :)

If my faith is important, than reading God's Word must be important!

I like this Bible's illustrations!

Reading the Bible with my kids is important because the words in it are the foundation of what I believe and what I pray they will and follow. I remember the importance my mom placed on Bible reading and am thankful for that influence in my life. And if that's not reason enough, or rather maybe this is where the reasons start, Deuteronomy 6:1-8.

1These are the commands, decrees and laws the Lord your God directed me to teach you to observe in the land that you are crossing the Jordan to possess, 2so that you, your children and their children after them may fear the Lord your God as long as you live by keeping all his decrees and commands that I give you, and so that you may enjoy long life. 3Hear, O Israel, and be careful to obey so that it may go well with you and that you may increase greatly in a land flowing with milk and honey, just as the Lord, the God of your fathers, promised you.

4Hear, O Israel: The Lord our God, the Lord is one.a 5Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength. 6These commandments that I give you today are to be upon your hearts. 7Impress them on your children. Talk about them when you sit at home and when you walk along the road, when you lie down and when you get up. 8Tie them as symbols on your hands and bind them on your foreheads. 9Write them on the doorframes of your houses and on your gates.
