The Early Reader's Bible“A Bible to Read All by Yourself”

The tagline on the top of the cover of The Early Reader’s Bible is incredibly accurate. This is “a Bible to read all by yourself.”

My daughter is an early reader. She is heading into grade 1 and is learning to read. As I was browsing through this children’s Bible, I was thinking about how my daughter, as an early reader, would engage with this content, and I think she would love it! It’s fascinating to me how all of these story Bibles can be so different and so unique.

I love children’s Bibles that have a consistent pattern and routine to them.

This story Bible has a couple of steady elements to it:

  • For every story there are 3 full pages of Bible storied, simple “early reader” content
  • At the end of every story there is “something to ask” (set of questions to review the story) and “something to do” (a handful of action steps to take in light of the story)

I’m a big fan of the author: V. Gilbert Beers.

A number of years ago, we use The Step-by-Step Bible: A Panoramic Journey Through God’s Word, in our Followers after school program, and we loved it! It was a great resource to walk students through the content of Scripture and Beers was a great and accurate storyteller. I’m thinking they used his style in this book, which is a really good thing.
