Bedtime Read and Rhyme Bible Stories by Bonnie Rickner Jensen
Bedtime Read and Rhyme Bible Stories is a beautifully illustrated book and is the perfect addition to the family night time routine. I keep this on my son's dresser and we read a few stories every night before bed. They are short and written in poem form so are easy to read and fun for kids to listen to.
As you would imagine, the stories aren't thoroughly detailed but are great to get your child started on a variety of Bible stories, or supplement one's already known to the child. Stories include the Creation, The Ark, Daniel and the Lion's Den and Queen Esther for the Old Testament stories among many others. The New Testament stories go beyond the life of Jesus and into the gift of the Holy Spirit, Saul's change of heart and even touches a little bit on Heaven in the book of Revelations. Each story/poem (over 90 altogether!) ends with a short prayer, so this can be a complete, short devotional for kids before bed.
The illustrator, Robert Dunn, does a fabulous job keeping the pictures matching the stories so children can easily imagine the stories and they are bright and fun. The book is a gorgeous hardcover that has a golden ribbon to easily keep your place and also includes a To, From, Date page towards the front of the book to make this a great gift.
Bedtime Read and Rhyme Bible Stories can be purchased at a variety of bookstores and online. Purchase here: Tommy Nelson Publishers This is the perfect Christmas gift for that special child in your life.
