I received a copy of “The Sweetest Story Bible for Toddlers” for purposes of evaluation. Thoughts are my own.
I don’t have a daughter, but I do have nieces and goddaughters and I love giving them small gifts whenever I could. When I saw The Sweetest Story Bible for Toddlers, I knew I wanted to give it to my friend’s daughter, age 4, who started being part of our church’s tambourine ministry when she was just 3 years old.
Toddler edition of a popular storybook Bible designed just for little girls!
The sweetest things surround a little girl’s life: hearts and flowers, kittens and puppies, umbrellas and tea parties, kisses and hugs. But the sweetest thing of all in her life is God’s love. The Sweetest Story Bible for Toddlers includes eight beloved Bible stories that show how much God loves his people and every little girl. This board book includes a padded cover, perfect for reading with little ones.
I love that this book features 8 well-loved Bible stories — Creation, Noah’s Ark, Baby Moses, Queen Esther, the Birth of Jesus, Jesus’ Ministry, Jesus’ Crucifixion, and Jesus’ Resurrection — so some of these might already be familiar to young kids especially if they attend Sunday School regularly.
Each story is just 4 pages long and each page has just about 2-4 lines of words in them. This means that little girls can finish reading a story in just a few minutes.
The illustrations are cute and easily grabs a toddler’s attention because of the beautiful colors. I once read a similar children’s book and didn’t like some of the illustrations because some were a little too “dark” especially on some sad events (the plagues, Jesus’ crucifixion, etc). But this book’s illustrations didn’t feel dark at all. That’s not to say that it didn’t get its point across though.
All in all, I think this is a good book to give to toddler girls. You can give it as a “first Bible” even if it isn’t technically one.
