What is it about anything pink with hearts that has little girls excited? My daughter took one look at this Bible and squealed! I explained to her that it’s for toddlers so at five, it might be a little young for her. But she insisted The Sweetest Story Bible for Toddlers was simply MADE for her. So we sat down to read it together.
We actually read the whole thing in one sitting, cover to cover, which you probably couldn’t do with a toddler. They were all the familiar Bible stories, just told on a younger level. The thick, padded cover and cardboard pages are conducive to toddlers handling and turning the pages.
The illustrations are perfect for toddlers and the swirly font makes it fun and girly. It’s just eight stories that kids will be the most familiar with. I did notice that Queen Esther was a little bit of a detour from the usually selected stories in a short Bible. I assume this is because it’s a Bible for girls and Esther is a role model for little girls to look up to. I like that it included her story. It also tells the story of Moses as a baby and how he was rescued by the princess. Princesses and Queens are the stuff fairy tales are made of so it’ll definitely appeal to little girls. I know it did mine!
The Sweetest Story Bible for Toddlers really is sweet, from the font to the illustrations and stories that are chosen. This will make a perfect little stocking stuffer for the toddler girls in your life this year!
