Review: My First Hands-On Bible

 Finding a good preschool Bible has always been a bit of a challenge for me. I've enjoyed the Bible story books we have had for our preschoolers, but the new My First Hands-On Bible from Tyndale Publishers brought some extra things to a preschool Bible that I fell in love with. 

First, Tyndale's new My First Hands-On Bible is an actual Bible. It's been abridged, but the scriptures are all from the New Living Translation (NLT). This book features 85 of the key stories from the Bible. I appreciate using true scripture because I think it's important for our children to hear scriptures, not a story-form paraphrase of scripture. When I showed this Bible to our Youth Pastors, they said right away that they love using the NLT because if you are struggling with a verse, it uses simple language to make the Bible passages easier to understand. 

Rebekah LOVED her new Bible from the moment she got it. In fact, she insisted on having her picture taken with her new Bible at church. Each story in this Bible has several hand prints in the story. Each hand print is a simple activity that helps bring the story to life. We also like Pockets (the Kangaroo) and Cuddles (the Lamb). Pockets has a prayer and Cuddles has activities you can do outside of reading the story. Finally, each story has a Jesus connection that helps your child see that Jesus is at the center of all Scripture--even if he isn't mentioned in that passage.

Rebekah loves reading her new Bible and doing the activities. She remembers to take it to church each Sunday. This hard cover Bible retails for only $16.99. We give it an enthusiastic thumbs-up.
