My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Bright yellow handle, a board cover that is designed for a toddler/or baby; “My First Handy Bible” is perfect for the youngest members in the home or as a “First Bible” gift for that youngster in your life.
Durability is what is impressive with the bible, followed with the bright illustrations, that is enough to keep the kid(s) attention.
Composed of simple sentences,”My First Handy Bible” really does make for a good first time bible for the little ones.
Covering all 66 books of the bibles, but covering with references for the parents to look up if the child (though with the age group, not as likely) to go over deeper with the child,”My First Handy Bible” has all the hallmarks for a “fun” good first time bible for young children; It gives them something to call their own and a way to keep them busy while at church or in the backseat of the vehicle.
For parents looking for a good beginner bible for toddlers and just for the babies to “have”, this is highly recommended to give as a gift.
“My First Handy Bible” does what it needs to do; It gets the attention of the younger children, its colorful, it lets them have something that is for them to have and call their own, and just really have the winning combination that makes this a good first bible.
