My First Hands-On Bible by Tyndale

A few weeks ago, we received a great children’s Bible from Tyndale House Publishers – it’s called My First Hands-On Bible.  Here’s a bit about this Bible, directly from the publisher’s website:

978-1-4143-4830-8 My First Hands-On Bible is the preschooler version of the popular Hands-On Bible, which has sold over a half million copies. Jesus taught with hands-on lessons and illustrations; My First Hands-On Bible uses the same experience-based learning to communicate God’s Word in an active, understandable way. My First Hands-On Bible is a fun and simple yet meaningful way to engage preschool, pre-K, and K children (ages 3-6) with the Bible while helping them build a solid faith foundation. Each lesson focuses on a specific Bible point through a variety of activities in order to reinforce and help young children remember the stories and lessons. Using common household items, you can help your children have a “hands-on” learning experience while engaging them in 85 key stories from the Bible. My First Hands-On Bible doesn’t just retell the Bible stories; it also includes actual Scripture from the easy-to-understand and easy-to-read Holy Bible, New Living Translation. In addition to the stories and activities, there are fun illustrations, prayers, and a special Jesus Connection feature.

Ian (5) and I have been enjoying reading through this Bible  together.  The illustrations are fun to look at and the text is easy for him to understand.  Rather than being a “Bible story book” this Bible actually uses Scripture (from the NLT, which isn’t my favorite, but it IS simple); and the verses are identified with numbers. Through the text are multi-colored handprints, which refer you to other things – little extra notes, questions, activities, and information that kids will enjoy.

After each chapters main text, you’ll find extras like The Jesus Connection (which is essentially a one-line summary of the text), Sing-Along Time, Dos and Don’ts, Let’s talk (with some great conversation starters), activity ideas, and a prayer.

This Bible would definitely make a great gift for the preschooler in your life. It retails for $16.99 and can be purchased directly from the publisher, or from Christianbook.com, Amazon.com, and various other retailers. 

NOTE: This is a MamaBuzz Media review. The product was provided byTyndale for this review.
