Children often learn best by actions so in pairing specific words with movements a memorable experience for little ones is created. The Read & Play Baby Bible board book offers readers and listeners an action and word format that doesn’t overwhelm parents, caregivers, or teachers in introducing important Bible stories to listening ears and wondering minds.
There are 22 stories taken from both the Old and New Testament books of the Bible. The stories are in the simplest of formats that a child as young as 18 months could understand, in my opinion. Two sentences usually make up a story and on the corresponding page, are the actions to go along with the story. For example, the “Jesus is Lost” story has actions that tie in a game of peek-a-book to stress how Jesus was missing but was found again by his parents.
Actions throughout can be physical, song, or a prayer. Aside from the unique actions, the illustrations are a delight for children to gaze upon. Picture are full of color and lively characters of animals and people, all which fit well into the book. The characters for each story are depicted as children which is somewhat common for children themed books. Each story has the scripture verse of where it can be found in the Bible under the title for reference if one so chooses to look it up.
It’s a cute Bible storybook perfect for children 18 months to 3 years old, in my opinion.
