Curl up together and experience the Bible in a fresh, new way. Young children will enjoy pointing to and naming objects on each page for early learning. Most important, they’ll discover favorite, age-appropriate Bible stories, with Scripture verses and short prayers that also hide God’s Word in young hearts.

MY THOUGHTS ON THIS CHILDREN’S BIBLE 

I really like this little Say and Pray Bible for little ones. The Bible itself is a board book, so it’s great for your one year old!! No tearing pages. It is just the right size for little ones to hold. The illustrations by Sarah Ward, in this Bible are so precious and children will love looking at the pictures in their own Bible. The stories are short, but they are a great introduction to the Bible for this small age. I am all about teaching children about the Bible, even before they walk and talk. They can always listen and look at pictures. I can see children grabbing this little Bible off the shelves. And they will have a Bible of their own to carry to church. What a great way to teach children to always carry their Bibles to church. This Say and Pray Bible has so many lessons, you don’t want to miss any of them.

Diane Stortz has the cutest Bible’s and Bible story books for little ones, and this is one of her cutest ones. Sarah Ward does an excellent job with the illustrations. They are cute, cuddly, and just the right look for your precious children! If you have small children, in the neighbor hood of 0 to 3, this is a great way to start teaching them about Jesus. I highly recommend this Bible to you!

More from Diane

Once upon a time there was a little boy who loved his books. Long before he could talk, he loved turning pages, looking at the pictures, hearing his grandpa name the objects in the pictures, and pointing to those objects.

And once upon a time there was a grandma looking for a truly age-appropriate Bible storybook for that same little boy. And the best ones she found still contained too many words.

And she wondered . . .

Why not write a Bible storybook that could be designed especially for babies, toddlers, and young preschoolers? With the shortest stories you’ve ever seen, and with labeled objects and people in the illustrations that little ones could point to and name?

That’s how my book Say & Pray Bible began.

I wanted a book with age-appropriate, SHORT Bible stories. Babies and toddlers LOVE turning pages. Listening to long stories has to wait until they’re older.

I wanted short Bible verses and prayers to go with the very short stories.

And I wanted the illustrations to have lots of LABELED objects to encourage little ones to point and name.

Some days you might just read the stories. Another day, just the verses. Yet another reading, just the prayers. And some days, you might just talk about the pictures.

Most children begin to say single words with meaning, always nouns, at 12–18 months. This is the stage when children can point to—and eventually name—photos or illustrations of objects in their books.

Around 24 months, children begin to say two-word, noun plus verb sentences, such as “Cat run.” In time, sentences become longer and include adjectives and adverbs, but no function words: “Big cat run fast.” Last to develop is the use of function words (such as the and an) and more complex sound combinations and sentence forms.

Human beings seem to be hardwired to acquire language and learn to speak—evidence that, as the Bible says, we are “fearfully and wonderfully made” (Psalm 139). But there’s a lot we can do to help little ones develop language skills and expose them to God’s Word at the same time!
