Description of this little Bible:
Specially designed for very young children, the God Helps Me Biblefeatures a spiral binding that allows the book to lay flat on a table, floor, or lap, which leaves little hands free to turn the pages and point out fun details in Clare Caddy’s darling illustrations.The twenty-five favorite Bible stories use words and concepts tailored for the youngest reader, so each story clearly emphasizes how God loves and helps His world and people.

My Thoughts on God Helps Me Bible
God Helps Me Bible

This is a really cute Bible for small children. The stories are short so that some children can even memorize them. I really like the spiral bound, and especially since they have the spirals covered up, and the pages open easily. The illustrations are adorable, with beautiful colors and cute child-like characters so children can relate to the characters. One especially nice feature is the thickness and quality of the pages. My three year old niece plays with and reads this Bible all of the time, and the quality of the Bible keeps it nice and in great shape even though it is a constant book she looks at and reads. And she does read it, she knows most of the stories, so she looks at the pictures and makes up her own little story, so adorable.

I appreciate authors like Juliet David, illustrators such as Clare Caddy and publishers like Candle Books and Kregel Publishers for Bibles for children that they can look at and read in their own little way. It is never too early to teach children about Jesus, and this precious Bible is one of the many ways we have to do just that.

My only disappointment with this Bible is that there is no story on Jesus giving His life so that we could have eternal life through Him. I know why it was left out, but this being the most important thing in the Bible because it is our only way of a home in Heaven, I feel it should be included. This is why the 4 stars instead of 5. Everything else about the Bible I love.

I received this book free from Kregel Publishing. I was not required or expected to write a positive review. The opinions here are my own.
