In order to encourage y’all and your little readers, we’re delighted to share tried and true kids favorites (books or series) from our family’s collection. My ABC Bible Verses by Susan Hunt is a long-time favorite for us! Feel free to return the favor and tell us all about your kid lit favorites in the comments!
about the book
Knowing the Bible can help you know God better. Here is a colorful, story-filled way for even the youngest child to take God’s Word to heart—and learn the alphabet too!
Presented in an easy-to-use story format that applies individual Bible verses to real-life situations, this illustrated book for 3- to 7-year-olds is perfect for reading to your children or grandchildren, and great for use in churches, Christian schools, Bible clubs, or home schools. It can also be easily adapted for family devotions with young children.
The ABCs are building blocks to your child’s formal education. And these verses are the building blocks of the soul—the building blocks that can lead to eternal life.
why we like it…
This one of our favorite resources to share practical and applicable scripture with our children. Each verse has a short explanation, a story with children who learn to apply the verse, and discussion questions to help hide His Word in our hearts.
Throughout the book, Missy and her brother Bill learn about God’s Word and how it teaches us about Him and how He wants us to live. The stories gave our children a deeper understanding of the verses by putting them into a context they can relate to and remember.
We purchased this book over seven years ago and still use it today.
The opinions expressed are my own.
