Gift idea- The Beginner’s Bible: Timeless Children’s Stories

 

The Beginner's Bible: Timeless Children's StoriesThe Beginner’s Bible. Illustrated by Kelly Pulley. Read with Gage in 2014.Published in 2005. 512 pages.

When I was pregnant my grandmother gave me this Bible at my shower and this is what she wrote.IMG_1483[1] My grandmother had a habit of gifting Bibles signed by her and I have them all.  They are my connection to her now that she is gone and I’m so thankful that Gage has this Bible to hold onto to remember the few years he was able to spend with her.  So, that being said, if you are looking for a perfect and personal  Christmas gift for a child or grandchild I can think of none better than a meaningful and timeless book. For me and my family that has been a Bible.

This book is broken up into very short chapters telling the many well-known stories of the Bible, each chapter a perfect length for small ones.  We read one chapter every night before bed after his other picture books and he felt such a sense of accomplishment as the bookmark progressed through the book (don’t we all?). It’s a great starter Bible to familiarize young kids with most of the big stories.   I think we’ll probably read it again starting in January.

  2. We still have a copy of the Beginner’s Bible around here somewhere, but it is not as meaningfully inscribed as yours. Definitely a treasure!

  4. She would have loved to read the Bible to Gage. I know she is watching and smiling as you do.

  5. Thanks for the reminder. I have a few of these and need to dig them out and start reading them to Cole. I am so glad that Gage has one from his Grandma.
