Jesus And Me Bible Storybook

My philosophy is that my kids can never have too many storybook Bibles.  I feel like every one has something a little different to offer, and you never know which storybook Bible will offer an explanation that will resonate with their little hearts.

I was pretty excited to read the Jesus and Me Bible Storybook, because I wanted to see what this one would be like.  And you know what?  I love it.  It's probably my favorite of all the ones we have so far.

This is a storybook that is entirely focused on Jesus - each page has a story, fact, or characteristic about Jesus.  It also includes a prayer and a "Jesus and Me" section - which is like a practical application of whatever was discussed in the story.  It's almost more like a devotional than a story book, but the devotions are appropriate for young kids - Wyatt listens when we read it, and I try to pull out a lesson for him to remember from each page.

This is seriously my favorite thing of everything I have from Tommy Nelson.  Wyatt really loves it too - he asks for more than one story when we read it at night, and he carries it around with him during the day.  The other morning he came downstairs to our room, wanting to climb in bed with me, and he had the Jesus and Me storybook Bible in tow!  I tucked him in next to me and we had morning devotions together.

(I have to share this, because it's so cute - the other night we read a story from this book about how Jesus healed people.  Derek mentioned that he was feeling like he was getting sick, so I told Wyatt and said we should pray for Jesus to make Daddy feel better.  So we said a prayer, and then I sang him a song and tucked him in, but he said he wanted to "pray for Daddy" again.  So I started praying again, but he jumped in and said "Please Jesus, make daddy feel better . . . in Jesus name, Amen."  It was his first real prayer that he has prayed all by himself, and it pretty much made my heart explode listening to his sweet little voice, talking to Jesus.)

Another thing I love about this book is that it includes telling kids about believing in Jesus as their Savior in the majority of the stories - and I love that.  I love the constant reminders of what Jesus did for us and how to spend eternity with Him.

We're a little over halfway through the book (we've been reading one or two stories every night), and I'm already sold on it!  I would highly recommend this book to any parents with young kids!

Tommy Nelson has also offered to give one of my readers a copy of the Jesus and Me storybook Bible!  Enter below for a chance to win!

Note: I received this book for free from Tommy Nelson in exchange for this review.  This is my honest opinion.

Oh I'll have to take a look into this book! We have multiple different children's Bible books and you are right, they are all a little different, I like that. The idea of one all about Christ sounds cool, different than the ones we have!

This looks like such a cute book. It would be great for Jackson. :-)

I have also fallen in love with storybook Bibles! We have The Rhyme Storybook Bible and just received The Jesus Storybook Bible for Julia as a gift and it is fantastic! Beautifully written and illustrated and so much explanation to help kids understand God's word.

I have one that I absolutely loved. I used it while teaching Bible in a first grade classroom at a private school. I found that it was very informative and also sensitive to children and their developmental needs. However you are right I think that you can never have too many, especially because they provide different insights. I'm super excited to check out the fun!The Jesus Storybook Bible: Every Story Whispers His Name by Sally Lloyd-Jones et al. http://www.amazon.com/dp/0310708257/ref=cm_sw_r_udp_awd_Gk6btb0V1EYZC
