Little Bunny’s Bible – Children’s Board Book Review

littlebunny
When given a choice of books to review through Zondervan Publishing / Zonderkidz, I chose to review this children’s board book Bible – “Little Bunny’s Bible” – because I have a morning routine with Tessa, where I read her a few pages from her baby Bibles.
We have quite a few baby Bibles because, as you can imagine, board books don’t really allow for much variety of text after a while. After reading the same simple text over and over and over again, I’m pretty much ready for a little change! Also, since I want to raise my children to be familiar with the Word of God, I figure you can’t have too many Bibles lying around!

About the Book

Book description from Amazon.com:
The Little Bunny’s Bible is a soft, cuddly Bible that children age 2-5 can call their own.  Throughout this plush-covered book, little ones learn that they’re loved and cared for by God as they hear about God’s faithfulness in stories from the Old and New Testaments of the Bible.  With sweet, rhyming text and colorful illustrations, this soft and cuddly character storybook Bible is sure to become a classic with preschoolers.

My Thoughts on the Book

As I said above, we have LOTS of toddler and baby Bibles in our home (I have even reviewed a couple of them before). That said, I can say with complete confidence that this is BY FAR the best baby board book Bible I have seen yet.
Not only is the fluffy plush exterior something that kids LOVE (my daughter ran toward the book with arms outstretched, giving it hugs and kisses the second I unpacked it from the mail!) but the illustrations are bright, colorful, eye-catching and very toddler friendly. Lots of animals, colors and context to talk about, prompting fun and varied conversations to explain and instruct with. “Look! Two birds! One, two. This one is blue. Birds go tweet tweet!”… You get the idea.
But I have to say, my FAVORITE part of this baby Bible is that the text is NOT dumb. I don’t know how to describe it any other way. Sometimes it feels like whoever is writing board books just isn’t trying! Like, because it’s for a toddler, no thought needs to go into whatever is printed on the page. I’ve read some text in baby Bibles that approaches the nonsensical, throwing in random words just because they rhyme.
Not only does this baby Bible have great text, the poetry is so pure and profound, that I might actually use the text as memorization lessons for Tessa when she is a bit older! Not even joking!
Anyway, since I’ve received this book, we’ve read through it (a page a day) twice now, and we have no plans to set it aside anytime soon! I would highly recommend this baby Bible, above all others!

    Tessa will literally grab our hands and walk us to her book shelf to have us grab this book. Then she’ll sit in our lap making all the animal sounds she knows! It’s super cute!

    Looks really cute – especially if they can touch it and it is fluffy = that’s what the cover looks like? 🙂

    Sounds like the perfect gift for a new baby:) I’m afraid my board book days are far behind me… and I can’t remember any that were particular favorites. But I do remember always having a bag of them with me because my oldest adored books. And she still does at 21… she reads more than anyone I know. I agree that the writing can be beautiful even for toddlers. They are listening, so why not use eloquent language?

      Right?!?!?! I’m so glad someone “gets it”.. I always feel kind of bad whenever I talk unfavorably toward a kids book, but it’s like.. come on! For instance, I just read a board book called, “Jose the Talking Pinata” to my daughter. The entire text was something along the lines of “Telling the truth is good! We should always tell the truth! Lies are bad! So always tell the truth! The end!” And during the entire book, a little Mexican boy is holding a pinata.. and the boy is the one talking, the pinata is just a cardboard pinata. Like.. what the heck?!?!??! Are you even trying?! lol

    Honestly I’ve never read a Bible for kids, but I really appreciate the concept behind thi one. I loved reading your review.
    You just left a comment on my blog that really stroke me….are you able to sew as a Couturier like Giambattista Valli? That’s amazing.

      LOL, my sewing skills are random and sporadic, but I have experience with a lot of obscure dress styles and techniques. If you check out my cosplay page: http://domesticgeekgirl.com/cosplays I made most of those costumes from scratch. My husband and I LOVE to sew together, and we are getting pretty good at Victorian / Edwardian / ball gown cuts and styles.. which seems to be coming back into vogue! lol

    The book market has evolved a lot since my son was a toddler – we had some plastic books or with fabric, but the things of nowadays are gorgeous!! Waiting for grandchildren (not too soon, though 😉

    Oh my goodness does this ever look adorable!

    We too have so many Bibles. I never got baby/board Bibles though… I went straight to preschool picture book Bibles.

    Thanks for sharing!

    This board book got me curious, from the way you gushed about it in your review, Gingi. 🙂 Off to Amazon now or elsewhere online to check out photos of the inside. I wish you were able to post even just a couple to tease us, and definitely other moms who might come across this post.

    I get what you mean with the “dumb text” in children’s books. I browse the children’s books in bookstores to pass by time (like whenever I go there to wait for some friends in case I get to the mall first or something lol) and notice that they don’t even try. Literally there’s like 3 words (or less!) in every page, in big bold fonts and the entire book has less than 10 pages and it costs a lot. Ridiculous. How is any kid going to learn proper sentence comprehension or construction with that. :))

    That fluffy cover design is genius too. I might even get one for myself just for the cover if I saw it in the bookstore.

      Yeah, I hate when the text is straight up dumb.. there are some books I read to my daughter and then just sit there like, “What, exactly, is this teaching her??” hehe.. at this point I only get her used books or books for review. Board books are WAY too pricey..
