A collection of stories from the new Testament. Retold in simple and lively language with breathtaking illustrations. A special gift and a source of inspiration that introduces children to the world of Bible and conveys that God loves us.
I still remember when my ZD was still in my tummy during my pregnancy period - I always read him a story and I always listen to classical music. We all know as a mother that reading stories and listening to music during pregnancy, specially starting from three months is very important because babies begin to absorb language when they are inside the womb their brains do not wait for birth to start absorbing information. That's why I was always excited to read him a story. Not just reading but also talking to him of course.
ZD's now is a toddler. If before I'd always exerted a lot of effort reading him a story already, how much now? You can just imagine how chaotic it can be! Even my ZD is very active and restless, I still try to catch his attention by reading a story. There's a lot of story books that we can purchase from book stores for our children. Here are some types of stories for children.
* A folk Tale- Usually transmits traditional wisdom.
* A fairy tale- There is usually magic.
* A Bible story- It is more about our Spiritual.
* A personal story- You can also tell the children a personal story about something that happened to you in your life. Just make sure not to tell them a lie, they believe everything we say! lol!
* A nursery rhyme- Usually has a rhyme and rhythm and may be sung. Most have a melody. Some have hand movements or a dance.
I had a folk tale and a Bible story for my toddler. But right now I always read bible stories for him before he sleeps at night.

Did you see that? Only one book but filled with bible stories that your kid will surely enjoy :) No wonder why it's called Jumbo book! lol! I love this book because of its size. The pictures are very clear and colorful. The story is very simple designed for children for them to understand.
For me I need to teach my child about the bible or bible story because the bible is the Word of God, it is alive and sharper than any two edged sword according in Hebrew 4:12. I want him to know more about God, how the world began, for example: the story of creation. I want him to love God as God loved him also. The Word of God says in Proverbs 22:6 "Train up a child the way he should go"... For me the firm foundation of this life is when you have Jesus. :)
