Giveaway: Read and Share Bible

 I am so ecstatic to be doing this giveaway!

I had heard about this bible after seeing a trailer for the Read and Share DVD Bible from one of the GiGi videos my girls watch, but never got my hands on it to see it for myself. When a wonderful representative from Tommy Nelson Publishing contacted me to do a review and giveaway, I was giddy with excitement.

I loved the idea of actually sharing with you my experience with this bible and them passing it along to you.
I was in for a surprise...it completely exceeded my expectations.

The girls have had several kind of bibles that are age appropriate. Some were lift the flap, or stories with an illustration of a bible character.  But the Read and Share Bible is by far the best bible we have used with our kids for a few reasons...

1.  The discussion starter questions that accompany each story make for simple and very fruitful devotion time.
I am amazed at the response from my girls.  They LOVED the illustrations and the thought provoking questions actually made them think and respond.  They are age appropriate and it made them want to hear more.  After the first time using this bible, they both woke up in the morning asking to read it again as a family.

2.  The illustrations are nothing short of spectacular!
When you first see them, they are bright and not at all busy.  But it is the content of the illustration that is so amazing.  They literally tell the story in a way that a child can understand and then engage themselves in the story. For example, in the creation story, when God makes man, you see this large hand fashioning a man and it makes it understandable for a child that our Big and Mighty God made us. 

Below is the story of Noah so you can see for yourself.  The illustration of the flood covering the land is just brilliant and so easy to understand in the little mind of a child. I will stop typing so you can start reading...The Story of Noah from the Read and Share Children's Bible

  6. 1. I would get this for my daughter, she loves to read bible stories. Now that we live with my grandmother it would be a great book for them to share together.

    2. My favorite part of the read and share bible is the discussion questions, I think that sharing questions are important ways to get your kids and everybody thinking about the bible stories.

  18. I'd like this bible to be my son's very first book. He's turning 3 this coming April and would be starting school on June. He's a bit talkative so I know he'll be sharing the stories to his peers.
