I officially have a toddler and he is on the move! It is rare to see Jax conscious and not moving. One of the rare exceptions is reading time. He loves being read to; thank goodness! We do required reading and family devotions together every day so it would be rough if he couldn’t even sit for that! While his older brother and sister are at school I focus on reading him books geared towards his age. He loves having his own books to “read!”
The My Give Thanks Bible was an instant hit with him. It must have been the bright, colorful cover with happy characters that grabbed his attention because he instantly took it and sat down to look through it. It has the nice soft cover and rounded corners that are perfect for toddlers to handle with thick cardboard pages for easy turning.
This book goes through the most popular Bible stories that people are usually familiar with. Each story has a title, the reference of the verse(s) in the Bible where it’s found and a short recap of the story. What sets this book apart from others is the “give thanks” aspect of it. At the end of each story it says “give thanks” and then says what we can be thankful for in relation to the story.
For example, “In a Den of Lions” found in Daniel says “Thank you, God, for keeping me safe!” This is a great one for little ones especially who have fear as a daily part of their lives. They need to be reminded that God is watching over them, always taking care of them.
I like that this book focuses on giving thanks with Thanksgiving just around the corner. It’s a great reminder for our little ones to always give thanks to God for the things he does for us daily. My Give Thanks Bible is a new favorite for both the toddler and I!
About the Book
My Give Thanks Bible brings beloved Bible stories such as Noah’s Ark, David and Goliath, and the birth of Jesus to life for beginning readers. The stories chosen for this padded cover board book show children how people in the Bible were thankful for God’s great blessings and remind us that we should be thankful for the blessings in our lives too.
