The Read With Me Bible for Little Ones is a new board book (with padded hardcover) from Zondervan/Zonderkidz. The illustrations throughout the Read With Me Bible for Little Ones board book are done in Dennis G. Jones' very specific cartoon style, as seen in the cover image.

The Read With Me Bible for Little Ones includes very simplified versions of 8 popular Bible stories, 4 from the Old Testament and 4 from the New Testament. They are:
- The Very Beginning (Genesis 1-2:3)
- Noah Builds an Ark (Genesis 6-9)
- David Fights Goliath (1 Samuel 17)
- Jonah and the Big Fish (Jonah 1-3)
- Jesus is Born (Luke 2; Matthew 2)
- A Day in the Life of Jesus (Matthew - Mark, Luke - John)
- Jesus Calms the Storm (Matthew 8)
- Jesus Goes to Heaven (Acts 1)

Each of the 8 stories span 4 of the board book pages (2 page openings each). There are just a couple sentences on each page, with the majority of each page filled with illustrations.

There are a lot of Bible board books out there for little ones and one thing that sets the Read With Me Bible for Little Ones apart from others is the "A Day in the Life of Jesus" story. Although I do think that particular story could have been written better (it is very choppy), I love the idea of "following" Jesus like this.

All in all, the Read With Me Bible for Little Ones is a colorful, fun, easy-to-read board book story Bible for little ones, and is worth checking out.

The pictures really catch your attention first, they are very funny and joyful looking which is different than most bible story books!

This Bible is geared for toddlers and it shares 8 stories that are your typical stories for that age group. Each story only takes a couple minutes so the book can easily be read quickly before bed each night! The language is simple for your toddler to understand so if you did read it often they will probably be able to tell you the story each night.

Thanks Zondervan for sending me this book to review as part of the ZBlog Squad Review Crew. I am blessed to be a part of this team to relieve free copies of books in exchange for an honest review. I will also add that I have been able to use these books as wonderful giveaways at my kids church events! My hope is that each child who comes through the doors will have a book to take home with them! (Posted on 5/8/2016)

The Read with Me Bible for Little Ones features gentle tellings of some of the more common stories of the Bible. I particularly like "Jonah and the Big Fish" because it speaks the truth about what happens when you don't listen. In this case, Jonah didn't listen to God's directions. Each story could also be used for a Bible class in the nursery or preschool class. Although the book doesn't mention the crucifixion, Jesus is depicted going to heaven with the assurance that he'll return someday. I see a lot of good conversation starters for three to four year olds. The illustrations are fun. Young children will enjoy the exaggerated features and big smiles. I received a copy of this book in exchange for a fair review. (Posted on 4/20/2016)

Now even the youngest in the family can have their very own Bible. I just love seeing the creativity of the authors as they create the perfect Bible for little ones. This one is a real good one for the 4-8 age group. It is a padded board book so perfect for those tiny hands to turn each page. Complete with scripture references each excerpt is just a small summarized sentence or two on some of the more popular Bible stories.

Some of the stories included are creation, Adam & Eve, and Noah just to name a few. They are put into simple words and phrases but it would be best read by an adult. A great bedtime story companion!

**Disclosure** This book was sent to me free of charge for my honest review from the author. (Posted on 4/15/2016)

“Read With Me Bible for Little Ones” was sent to me by Zonderkidz – a division of Zondervan Publishing – free of charge, in exchange for my honest review.
Doris Wynbeek Rikkers wrote this Christian Children’s board book with the assistance of Dennis G. Jones, who illustrated it. Several of the stories from the Bible are told in few words. But, the thing that I believe will hold a little one’s attention – Dennis G. Jones has drawn VERY playful pictures. I believe children will find them fun.
I’d recommend this board book for tiny tots, early readers, and all those who read to and teach them.
