Watching my children fall in love with reading has been such a joy for me this year! Reed actually just got the reading award in first grade and I couldn’t be more thrilled! The little boy I used to have to force to do his reading is now described by his teacher as always having a book in his hand!
He eagerly checks out any book I give him and the Believe Storybook was no exception! He gobbled it up like he does all books!
My family does devotions together every night and this is centered around a children’s devotional book or Bible. We just finished our last storybook Bible that was basically just all the major stories that we read to our children in a very simple, young format.
Reed is now seven and does most of the reading to fulfill his requirements from school. Paige is five and just finishing Kindergarten. She usually answers the questions found at the end of the chapter. It took almost a year to get through our last book and they both grew and changed so much this last year that they definitely outgrew the book and were ready for something more mature.
I really like that the Believe books from Randy Frazer have versions available from the tiniest of tots through young adult. This Storybook version is for ages 4+ and it’s just perfect for my older kids.
They were really excited to dive in to a new book and we all liked the bug, larger than life size. It makes it easy for young hands to hold and grasp and especially when it’s spread between the laps of two children.
When I read the foreword first I was really excited! The format of this book explores the themes of the Bible like love and forgiveness. While it doesn’t go from Genesis to Revelation like most, it does include some of those favorite Bible stories that kids know and love. The focus instead is more on the purpose and meaning of the stories instead of just the facts.
I feel like this is the perfect transitional storybook to take my kids faith to the next level and I’m so exited about what we will all learn from Believe!
