A Bible is a Great Gift!

A Bible is a great Christmas gift that’s a lasting legacy for any child. I still have the Bible I got in elementary school with my name engraved on the cover. More importantly the lessons I’ve learned about life from that Bible are what have guided me through the years. I know you want your children to rely on God’s word as they face daily challenges. One of the best ways to help them is by getting them a Bible version they can understand at an early age. So, here are some selections by age level. You can also refer to my blog post, “Shopping for a Bible”.

Baby’s Hug-A-Bible (Ages 0-4)

This resource is a great way to start your child off with some of the most basic Bible stories. It’s written by Sally Lloyd-Jones, the familiar author of The Jesus Storybook Bible.  And it rhymes!   Little kids love rhyming books!  

God’s Great Plan Storybook Bible (Ages 3-6)

This little book bridges the age gap between the Baby’s Hug-A-Bible and The Jesus Storybook Bible.  As your child grows, you’ll want to make sure you are providing a Bible that grows with them.  

The Jesus Storybook Bible (Ages 4-8)


I’ve reviewed this resource for you before.  If you get my newsletter, you know I love to use this little book with my grandkids.  We read this book often when they are with us.  Check out my review “Developing the Habit of Family Devotions”. 

The NIrV Adventure Bible (Ages 6-10)

These are great for elementary age kids and this version is so understandable.  There are so many different covers for these, be sure to select one that will fit your child’s personality!

Other Books to Capture Your Child’s Attention 

I love finding good books for kids that will keep their interest while teaching them a few things. When a live lesson is wrapped in a good story, it can be easier for children to understand without seeming preachy! And one series I’ve recently found is written by J. Warner Wallace. 

Wallace, a retired detective,  decided to investigate the claims of Christianity as he would a cold case. At the end of his investigation, Wallace found faith in Jesus! He has written about his investigations so that adults and children can see that faith is evidence based. Written for 8-12 year-olds, this series uses an investigation of a mystery to introduce detective principals and then applies those same principals to the claims of Christianity. Your children will learn to THINK as they explore evidence leading them to truth. In addition to the books, you can download activity sheets and note sheets that will take them through Cadet Academy. Plus there’s a parent guide to help you discuss each chapter with your child.  Parents might also want to read the adult versions of each book, Cold Case Christianity, God’s Crime Scene and Forensic Faith.

Cold Case Christianity for Kids

God’s Crime Scene for Kids

Forensic Faith for Kids

Resources to Build Family Time

Today’s families don’t seem to have a lot of time to interact. What I love about the following products is that they involve the entire family and can help children learn how to engage in good conversation.  Add any of these to your holiday gatherings or keep them on hand for dinner time discussion.  You’ll be surprised by what you learn about others! I really think it only takes one or two of these questions to get the whole family talking!

Devotional Dippers (Ages 3-12)

I’ve reviewed Devotional Dippers in a past blog. There are three different categories, God, Prayer, and Key Bible Words. Check out my review “Developing the Habit of Family Devotions”.

Family Talk (Ages 3+)

Questions, questions and more questions!  All formulated for family discussion, no matter what age!  There is a Family Talk 2 available at the end of December, but not in time for Christmas.

Grandparent Talk (Ages 3+)

And a special set to include grandma and grand-pap!  A trip down memory lane while educating children about the past.
