Book Review: My First Hands-On Bible

My First Hands-On Bible

About the Book (from tyndale.com):
My First Hands-On Bible is the preschooler version of the popular Hands-On Bible, which has sold over a half million copies. Jesus taught with hands-on lessons and illustrations; My First Hands-On Bible uses the same experience-based learning to communicate God’s Word in an active, understandable way. My First Hands-On Bible is a fun and simple yet meaningful way to engage preschool, pre-K, and K children (ages 3-6) with the Bible while helping them build a solid faith foundation. Each lesson focuses on a specific Bible point through a variety of activities in order to reinforce and help young children remember the stories and lessons. Using common household items, you can help your children have a “hands-on” learning experience while engaging them in 85 key stories from the Bible. My First Hands-On Bible doesn’t just retell the Bible stories; it also includes actual Scripture from the easy-to-understand and easy-to-read Holy Bible, New Living Translation. In addition to the stories and activities, there are fun illustrations, prayers, and a special Jesus Connection feature.

My Thoughts:
I’ve been looking for a kid-friendly Bible for my 4 year old, so I was excited to receive this for review.  After looking through this book, I really like what I see. Each chapter uses actual Bible text, not a dumbed-down paraphrase. This book is also full of hands-on exercises and discussion questions for kids and families. The activities lean more to the pre-school side, but the discussion questions are good for older kids as well.

I like it so much, I’ve decided to use it as the Bible component for our homeschool studies this year.
