My Favorite Bible by Rondi DeBoer and Christine Tangvald

Bring the Bible alive!

The most treasured stories of the Bible come alive in My Favorite Bible.

Start your little ones on a life-long love of God's word!

This colorful and dynamic gospel-centered Bible storybook guides children through the foundational truths of Scripture. Each story is fully and vividly illustrated and includes a simple narrative with things children ages 4—8 love: repetition, rhythm, and energy, along with a key biblical theme, a key Bible verse, an activity page, and discussion questions.

Adults and children will cherish time together as they grow closer to God.

Rondi DeBoer sold her first series at age fifteen and now has more than 430,000 copies of her books in print. After graduating from WSU in Elementary Education and studying at Multnomah Biblical Seminary, she went on to become a classical Christian teacher. Now she spends her time homeschooling her three daughters and eagerly awaits the arrival of a fourth daughter from China. She and her husband, Brian, live in Washington with their family.

Christine Tangvald has been writing for children for more than 25 years, with nearly 100 titles to her name and almost 3.5 million books in print. After earning her Elementary Education degree, she worked with children for more than 20 years. Her passion is to personalize God and make him real and alive to small children. She lives in Washington with her husband Roald.

I am always looking for fun books to share with my grandchildren, and I am sure that My Favorite Bible is one that will be loved by the whole family.

I love the format and size of this book, and my grandchildren have already given their stamp of approval. The book begins with the creation story and many other favorites like Noah and the Ark, Joseph, the Christmas story, and so many more.

One of my favorites is the story of Lazarus and how Jesus brought him back to life. The theme is the importance of friendship, and the family fun activity to follow is simple yet effective. It describes how to make a simple family friendship chain out of strips of colored paper, and to write the name of one special friend on each strip of paper. This is a chain that can keep on growing as other friends are remembered and treasured. What an awesome idea!

The colorful and bold drawings in this book are exceptional. With only limited words on each page, children eagerly follow along from one page to the next. I highly recommend this book, and I look forward to reading more of these stories with the little ones in my life.
