My mom was my Sunday school teacher more than once when I was young, and I have many memories of the Bible stories and songs we learned together at church and at home. I’ve called her more than once to remember the songs she taught me so that I could teach them to kids at The Crossing. Among the many teaching tools and books we used at home, the Read Aloud Bible Stories stand out in my mind. These big books with glossy pages and colorful illustrations were always fun to read. In fact, I still enjoy reading them.
There is nothing special or new about these books that has kept them in print for dozens of years. I think their simple wording and bright colors catch the attention of a 2 year-old, make sense to a 5 year-old, and are comfortably familiar to a 10 year-old. If you’re looking for fun books to read together with your kids this summer (or even by yourself!) I highly recommend all four for all ages. We offer Vol. 1-4 in our bookstore, and you can also purchase them online at Borders.
We would love to know what your family is reading and learning together this summer. Please let us know!
