My Thoughts: This delightful, soft bound [not paperback or hardback] is just right for little hands to hold.
The toddlers in our church nursery are always wanting to hold a book for themselves so when the teacher reads from the "grown up" lesson book many of the tots want to hold her book, too. But the lesson book is just cumbersome for small ones so she was delighted with this Bible that the tots can hold while she tells the bible story.
The tots also love the bright colorful pictures and enjoy "telling" the story to you or others. Now the pages are paper but don't tear very easily. As with all books tots should be made aware or how to hold and treat a book.
The "lessons" in this Bible are simply put for little ones attention spans; for example, the first lesson is "In the beginning God made the heaven and earth. But everywhere it was dark and empty." (p. 8). The lessons begin with Creation and end with Jesus coming back again.
A great gift book for the little one in your life!
