The best kids Bible ever

This is the best children's Bible ever-- it doesnt water down the story or go from Noah to Moses to David-- Gideon, Samuel, Deborah, and Jephthah are covered as well. Plus, it doesn't give you the short version, but goes into great depth at a wonderful speed-- and the illustrations are really enjoyed by my kids. I am blown away by what they have been able to grasp and incorporate into their playtime and life. They have such a hold on the flow and history of God's chosen people the Israelites.

I have to be honest, when this was a suggested book in the Sonlight catalog, I thought, "Really-- do we need another kid's Bible with the little feel good concise stories?" Then, I found a used one on Amazon and decided to try it and have been so happy and impressed, but most of all-- it has been an immense blessing to our family.

"snowed" in ideas

Well, it's winter in PA and we have been getting a couple little snowfalls here and there and it is very chilly :) I love snow- if it has to be cold, it can at least look pretty right?

Snow is so Magical.

So, we have been inside a lot-- I mean a lot! We have been making good use of playdough, dance parties, blocks, animals, games, puzzles-- all that stuff that might get a wee but ignored when its nice out and we're out and about soaking it all in.

Oh yes, we have been reading lots too. My five year old can read a bit (thanks to teach your child to read in 100 easy lessons) and my daughter doesnt mind listening for a little while, but while he practices, she reads in the big circle chair snuggled up with a blanket. I love it. Books are so wonderful-- they become treasured friends.

Funny story-- I was reading a mommy book and trying to finish it because it was so good and so I had it out while the kids played next to me and my son said, "Mom, all you do is keep looking at your book-- are you gonna start reading it?" So cute-- he didnt understand silent reading yet :) Someday soon I hope they still spend winter days buried in books....
