Story time has a special place in every child's life. It has particular impact when that time includes Bible stories, because through them, parents and children are drawn closer in their shared faith and - most important - closer to their Savior. Bible literacy begins early, as children become familiar with words, people, places, events, and concepts. Hearing stories at a young age about God's people builds intimacy with the Scriptures and their application to everyday life. Reading Bible stories with children helps them understand that the Bible is God's true Word, that God is active in every aspect of our lives, that God's uses His power for our benefit, and that God keeps His Promises. This collection of 125 retold biblical events, compiled especially for kids 6 and up, is accompanied by realistic illustrations. The narratives are written to encourage understanding of how God loves, forgives, guides, and protects us. And they are presented in readable language so children will listen, comprehend, and remember. The Growing in Faith Bible Storybook is interactive. Each narratives beings with a question to encourage the hearer to think and apply to Christian concepts and continues by explaining why the story is important and what it means to us today. Narratives conclude with a prayer to help children develop the practice of regular prayer.
