I Can Learn The Bible by Holly Hawkins Shiver {Book Review}


I Can Learn the Bible: The Joshua Code for Kids has made learning more about God through scripture exciting for my son and daughter! We’ve only just begun this weekly study as a family and so far, it has been a huge blessing. It’s encouraging to see how committed my children have been to go through this book together. I will say memorization has not been the easiest tasks for one of my children, but with the way each verse is presented it hasn’t been an issue! I’m quite impressed.

In this book, there are 52 Bible verses and plethora of kid appealing illustrations that’s pretty appealing to kids. The book is designed that children learn one scripture a week. The way each verse is presented is done exceptionally well. Each weekly scripture spans about 3-4 pages, it’s not strung out but instead simple and to the point. The author has broken each verse down with a series of thoughts and questions a child might would ask about it. Children will understand how the verse applies to them and learn more about God’s love and guidance for their lives.

If as a parent one is needing a bit more direction in helping their child or children to memorize scripture, there’s a letter to parents in the the beginning of the book and tips at the end. One of my favorite tips suggested is to write down the scripture where one could see it throughout the week. I wrote the first verse in this book on our white board and the results were good!

I can think of no better way than to start the New Year off than to commit to learn a new verse for all 52 weeks. You don’t have to start at the beginning of the book. There are weeks but not yearly dates. You can pick it up and start anywhere you’d like. After having such promising results, I think this study would be an excellent choices for families with 4-10 year olds. I highly recommend it!
