My Sing-Along Bible is a fun collection of easy to read Bible stories and easy to sing-along songs. The target “reader” is a toddler or preschooler. But, Baby J really enjoyed this book, which includes 50 favorite Bible stories and 5o songs, one for each story.
Here is how the book is organized. There’s a “Let’s Read” section which is the Bible story. Most of them are only six lines. Short. The middle section is a key verse, which is followed by the “Let’s Sing” section, with the lyrics to one of the songs on the CD, which can be found in the front cover of the book. Each story also includes a “Little Lesson,” which is the one sentence main idea of the story.
When we had to drive to Richmond one day, we took this book and CD with us. Baby J was all about it. One night, as we were transitioning into bedtime, she leaned over in my arms and reached for the book. We opened it up and read one of the stories, she “turned” the page and we read another one.
The book is a soft board cover, with durable binding, making it kid-friendly. The pictures are bright, colorful, and fun. The book does not cover any of the crazy, scary stories in the Bible. It does, which I was pleased to see, including a number of the Psalms. The story for these are things like, “Prayer is talking to God,” and then gives examples for what we could pray for. (“If your puppy is sick, pray!”)
This is, of course, a great addition to the little one’s library. But it could also be helpful for a nursery at church, or a young preschool Sunday school class.
