Juliet David’s God Helps Me Bible is a sweet devotional Bible for parents to share with their young children. God Helps Me Bible contains many of the Bible stories that most children’s picture story Bibles contain (Noah’s Ark, David and Goliath, Jesus feeding the multitudes), but it adds a little spot at the end of each section that tells the child how God helped the person in the story and encourages parents to talk to their children about how God has helped their family – this is precious! Often we read Bible stories to our children but neglect to teach them how to apply those true stories to their own little lives. God Helps Me Bible is a great reminder that the “life application” aspect of reading our Bibles is not for adults, alone, but for us to teach the younger generations as well.
God Helps Me Bible is also formatted as a covered spiral binding with very sturdy, though not quite “board book”, glossy pages. The spiral binding allows it to lay flat open on the table so that those with multiple children (or Sunday School teachers) can lay it down and let everyone crowd around without worrying about losing their place in the book.
God Helps Me Bible is such nice edition of a children’s Bible that it would make a great gift for a child, family, or for a Sunday School classroom (Preschool/Kindergarten).
