Retold by Diane Stortz
The sweetest things surround your little girl's life: hearts and flowers, kittens and puppies, umbrellas and tea parties, kisses and hugs. But the sweetest thing of all in her life is God's love. The Sweetest Story Bible for Toddlers includes eight beloved Bible stories that show how much God loves his people and your little girl. This board book includes a padded cover, perfect for reading with little ones.
The key is "sweetest." This little board book has the most delightful Bible re-tellings. Using a two-page layout, this little book is easy to handle especially with a little one upon your lap. The story of Creation, of the Ark, of Moses, Esther, of Jesus' birth, Jesus with the children, the Crucifixion, and the Resurrection are all portrayed with loving detail that is perfected for a little one's comprehension. Each story begins with the scripture passage at the top for older ones to explore beyond your "read aloud" time.
At bedtime, on a trip, or while tucking your little one in... this is the perfect little book for planting the harvest of love, faith, and God's promises. Choosing to give this as a baby gift, or a baptismal gift, or just for a little one's birthday will be a blessing that will last a life time. Consider this as a "Read It Forward" investment...
Worth snuggling up and reading over and over!
