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!
