By Doris Wynbeek Rikkers / ZonderKidz
The Read with Me Bible for Little Ones is the perfect storybook Bible for parents and young children to read together. Children can follow along with the engaging storytelling artwork and begin to read and recognize words with the easy to read language. This action-packed padded board book is a great way to share God’s Word with children as they begin their spiritual journey.

Read With Me Bible for Little Ones is a board book Bible with young children in mind. It is designed to tell some of the well-known stories of the Bible in a way which children will be able to understand. One of the ways it does this is by very colorful, active, and animated illustrations done by Dennis Jones. Another way it provides understanding is through its simple summaries of each story. There are not a lot of words to bring confusion to a little ones mind or a long story where their attention drifts off to something else.
I like how in the very beginning they have a completely black page with text, illustrating how there was nothing before God created the heavens, earth, light and dark. Another section I liked was where they show the gradual elevation of the water in comparison with the ark sitting upon land. The colorful images on each page can almost tell the stories themselves without words. My 2-year old son loved it as soon as I showed it to him. Before I had a chance to read it to him, he was already wanting to preview it himself.
I recommend Read With Me Bible for Little Ones to all little ones and their parents.
