Bible Basics Board Book

One of the biggest responsibilities God has given me is to teach and instruct my children in His ways so that they can have a relationship with him someday. As a book lover, I am always on the hunt for books that teach about God so that I can surround them with His love. A love that I can share through reading. Then, I stumbled across this book: Bible Basics. From the moment I heard about the idea behind this book I was intrigued.

But even more so as I flipped through the pages. Each page is colorful and attention grabbing, perfect for the attention span of babies and toddlers. The book itself is a board book so it’s not easily damaged. I can see Brookie and Little Man handling this book for many years which is always a plus for me.

But most importantly are the ideas introduced through this book. Babies and toddlers are introduced to the Trinity, Ten Commandments, books of the Bible, character traits, and more… in such a way that they can learn without being overwhelmed. Even though some of the topics go above their heads, the tenants are there to be building blocks of the faith I hope they will once claim as their own. On top of that, it’s a counting primer. So instead of counting ducks and balls, we can count things found in the Scripture.

    I’ve been looking for something like this for my 7 month old grandson! I want him to grasp the biblical aspects early, and so does he parents. He’s already such a bright boy!

      That’s so great that both his grandmother and his parents are so invested in teaching him Biblical concepts. A book like this would be a great addition!

    Hey Christina, We miss you! Do you find that Little Man has the attention for this book? I’ve been struggling the last week or two with baby ADD… I try to read a book to Lias, and he’s only interested in every OTHER book we are not reading :/

      Haha. Babies love to do that to us! Little Man is hard to get to read for any amount of time. But when he looks through it on his own, he’ll spend a good minute on it. At the age of our little ones, they’re attention span only lasts for a minute. Basically the equivalent of their age. What I do sometimes is give one book to him to hold while I read from another. Some learners are kinesthetic so they might have to do something while you’re reading to them.

      This type of book works really well with Little Man because he can do so much with it. He can turn the pages and bend…and if I have a chance I can point out what’s on the page and talk about it with him. Even if it’s only one page, it’s a great chance to instill a Biblical concept in him. And even Brookie who is now three gets a lot out of this book. So as Lias gets older, he’ll notice more and more and his attention span will grow.

      I miss seeing ya’ll too! We’ll hopefully make the next playdate. We were out of town for November and sick for October. So hopefully December will be better!

    This is truly a fabulous concept. I just wish my kido was young enough to enjoy it. Oh well there are always nieces and nephews to spoil!

      Haha, yes. It’s definitely a wonderful concept! I know I’ve always struggled to find books like this. Who knows? Maybe your kiddo could get some enjoyment out of reading to your nieces and nephews? It could definitely open some conversation about these concepts, too.

      Yes, it’s a great book to do that. Teaching our children to be more like Christ is such an important job.

    This looks like a cute book for my nephew!

      Thank you! I’m glad you like the title of my blog. Yes, this book would be great for anyone who needs to learn more about the Bible and who God is.

  8. Jen Enoch

    Such a great idea, especially for all the little ones and my family! I’m into anything that breaks down the Bible and God into easy to understand lessons for kids. Thanks thanks for sharing!

  9. Bonnie Lyons

    My kids are 5, 3, and 4 months and love all kinds of books. They’d love this.

  10. Helene Cohen Bludman

    You can never introduce books too early. Nurturing a love of reading is one of the best gifts we can give our children.

  11. nlampert

    Sounds like a good book for children who want to learn about religion.

  12. Amber

    This looks like a really awesome book!

  13. Eleanor

    What an awesome idea! My beautiful nephew has just been Christened, I’m yet to get him a gift and this is perfect!! Thank you!

  14. Milica

    This would be perfect for my 4 years old son. 🙂

  15. Elizabeth O.

    It’s a great way to introduce children to the bible and to reading in general. I love that it’s colorful, it will definitely grab a child’s attention.

  16. Sonya Kolodziejska

    This has got to be the best children bible book i have seen. Usually they aren’t ‘grabbing’ enough and lack colour. But this look great!

  17. Jennifer L Johnson

    What a fun book!! Teaching kids about the bible is so important, these would be especially great for younger kids to look at in church.

  18. Meeta

    Teaching kids about God is very important. Although we try not to make our teachings on any religion we are particular to show our kid that all paths in life lead to God. Being a family that travels a lot I want my child to grow up tolerant to all religions and cultures.

  19. Jane Porterfield

    Instilling a love of reading is an accomplishment in and of itself, but when young children can learn at the same time, it’s awesome.

  20. Sandra Crespo

    I agree God is such an important job as a mom for me now and I absolutely love these!

  21. Alfonzowords

    Now while i’m not a big believer in anything religious nor the bible this is such a creative and unique concept for a book. And I’m a big fan that it promotes reading.

  22. Kimberly C.

    So nice. Me and my hubby also read the bible with our son every night. We are constantly challenged going from a picture bible to a big-kid bible as he grows. Finding the right bible can be challenging, but when you do, it’s a beautiful thing.

  23. erinconefrey

    I’m not religious, but I have plenty of friends who are! I actually know one who is due with a baby in January and this would be such a sweet gift! 🙂 -Erin at http://www.stayathomeyogi.com

    What a lovely concept, board books are great.

  25. Fatima

    I know some family members who would love something like this for their Christmas stockings! These are perfect for growing children.

  26. Ashlea

    This looks like a cute book. My mother in law would definitely buy it.

    This looks really neat. I love that it is a board book for little hands too.
