The Jesus Storybook Bible

Cadence's main Easter present from Chris and I was her new Bible. Prior to Easter she would always carry around one of our Bibles whenever she was playing. We have a couple of little pocket-size ones and she thought they were perfect for her purse/baby stroller/whatever she happened to be carrying at the time. So, we got her her very own Bible. She LOVES it!! It's called the Jesus Storybook Bible and Chris and I are both very happy with it. It basically takes the major stories in the Bible and puts them into 3-5 pages. The really cool thing that makes it different than normal children's Bibles is that it then takes each story and turns it around to show how Jesus is right in the center of everything that goes one. Old Testament-present. It's pretty cool. Chris loves this about it because if you know Chris very well at all, he's a huge fan of Jesus. I'm not complaining or anything - I really like Jesus too - but Chris finds a way to put Jesus into everything he teaches (this happens to be one of the traits that I love the most about him).  

Anyway, so every night Chris, Cadence and I sit down to read one of her stories. So far it's going well and Cadence seems to really enjoy it. 



Tonight our new friend Isaiah was hanging with us and Cadence remembered that a few days ago her daddy had read a story about Isaiah so wanted Chris to read it again. So, we skipped from Jesus being born BACK to the OT and Isaiah prophesying about Jesus. Pretty cool and Isaiah liked that it kept saying his name.

Ditto April. Love the hair. The super cute brown dress and polka dot tights are also way cool! And that 2nd picture I love, love, love that Cadence Shae has her eyes glued on her daddy as he tells her about Jesus. And how sweet that she wanted to share the "Isaiah" story with Isaiah!

Hi!

I came across your blog via a google alert thing and thought I'd stop by and say hi--and how much i loved to see these photos of Cadence reading THE JESUS STORYBOOK BIBLE. Particularly, to see Superman reading Isaiah with her! priceless. (would love to be able post a blog showing Superman reading it--if you give me permission... ?)

What an honor to hear of how Cadence is enjoying the book. It's God's Wonderful Story and my privilege to be able to retell it for little ones... (and some big ones too)

My best to you--and thank you for reviewing the book and helping others know about it!
