Bible and Prayers for Teddy and Me is a book that is sure to delight your little ones (children or grandchildren). This is the perfect gift with illustrations that will capture the attention and stories that are simply told in an understandable dialog.
This is a first story Bible that will introduce young ones to some of the best known Bible stories. There are 14 stories taken from the Old and New Testaments beginning with Creation and ending with the Resurrection. The Old Testaments stories include Noah's Ark, Baby Moses, David and Goliath, Jonah and the BIG Fish, and Daniel in the Lion's Den. The New Testament stories include Jesus's birth, Zacchaeus, and Jesus's parables about the Lost Sheep, the Prodigal Son, and the Good Samaritan.
Each Bible story is followed by a poem/prayer that is illustrated with children and their teddy bears and is altogether thoroughly delightfully. With the Christmas season approaching this would be the perfect gift for the youngest members of the family! I know without a doubt that this is what my Grandmother would have given us as a gift if it had been available when we were all younger.
I was provided a copy of this book by Kregel in exchange for my honest review.
This Bible storybook contains favorite episodes from the Old and New Testaments, chosen to emphasize the message of God’s love and care. Each story concludes with a blessing, prayer, or reflection, which is illustrated with the child and the teddy bear together. Children will love the endearing teddy bear illustrations which will help them to relate easily to the stories and prayers.
