The Bible is not a fairy tale, but every great story happened “once upon a time.” The Once Upon a Time Bible for Little Ones features eight powerful and inspiring stories from the Bible in a treasured padded board book format and decorated with foil. This storybook includes tales of the baby in the basket, the birth of Jesus, and the boy that helped feed thousands, all illustrated with whimsical artwork by Omar Aranda. Each story is told in a way that will engage and excite young children as they hear the tales of real people of the Bible.

My thoughts: ONCE UPON A TIME BIBLE FOR LITTLE ONES is a cute collection of Bible stories to read to your favorite little one. Written in simplistic language, it is also kind of devotionalish with an application for your favorite child to think about as she goes about his or her day. 

My daughters are old enough to read, but they enjoyed reading this book to their dollies and stuffed animal friends, showing them the pictures, so even if your child is too old to read to, if she plays school or Mommy she might still enjoy the book.  (She used only because my daughters do it, but I know some sons might.) My daughters also embellished the stories as not all details are included, to make it more age friendly.   A fun book for little ones. 

I was given a copy of this book. All opinions are my own.

With full-color illustrations and two narrated and enhanced read-along CDs, this special deluxe edition of The Beginner’s Bible brings God’s Word to life for children in a way like never before. For on-line games and fun activities visit

My thoughts: THE BEGINNER'S BIBLE has been around for years and for good reason. This is a rerelease of the 2011 Deluxe edition with CDs so your child can listen to Bible stories when you can't read them to him--like at bedtime, naptime, or in the car. Or maybe when you're sick and can't talk. 

If your child likes to be read to, this would be wonderful to have on hand so your child can listen to it at will, The narrator is well done, and not annoying. 

A great gift idea for a new mom.
