The Baby Bible Storybook for Girls and The Baby Bible Storybook for Boys were written by Robin Curie and illustrated by Constanza Basaluzzo. They are exactly the same in content, but one has a pink cover and the other a blue cover!
These board book Bibles are filled with colorfully illustrated familiar Bible stories: Creation, Noah, Abraham and Sarah, Jacob's Ladder, Joseph, Moses, Joshua, Samson, Ruth, Samuel, David, Elijah, Jonah, Daniel, Jesus' Birth, Jesus' Baptism, Mary and Martha, Zacchaeus, Resurrection, Peter, and Paul! As you read the stories to your toddler or preschooler, there are fun interactive things that will help keep your child engaged.
In “Noah and the Animals,” the story reads:
“God told Noah to build a big boat called an ark. Noah used a hammer. Let’s pretend to hammer. All the animals marched inside – monkeys and bunnies and cows. God shut the door. Clap your hands together to shut the door. It rained and rained. But Noah and all the animals were safe and dry. Wiggle your fingers and show how the rain fell. God took care of Noah. God takes care of you too. Dear God, I’m glad You take care of all the animals and me! Amen.”
What I Like: I like the concise stories and the adorable illustrations. These would make a prefect 3 minute before bed devotional!
What I Dislike: Nothing
Overall Rating: Excellent
Age Appeal: The publisher says ages 3-5, but I would say ages 2-4 is a more appropriate range.
