Babies cuddling on my lap + reading to my kids + pointing them toward Jesus = three of my favorite things! Read & Play Baby Bible is a new Bible geared specifically for babies and I was excited to have a new one to work through with my kiddos.
However, when it says “babies,” it really meant it. My son, who hadn’t turned 3 yet when we started this as a nightly reading, was beyond it. It was too short and too silly for him, so just keep that in mind.
Each page has a very short “message” that was part-Bible verse, part-interactive lesson. It has the parent/reader do specific things like blow (like the wind) or point out eyes & little noses or make a boat with your hands. Just actions that go along with the lesson.
Strangely (because I love almost all children Bibles for various reasons), this one just did not jive with me…or my kids. The artwork isn’t my favorite either — Jesus looks like a girl among other odd things.
Although I read through the whole thing, we stopped using it in our family Bible time before it was finished. It’s worth maybe checking out at the library or borrowing from a friend, but I could recommend others if you’re looking to purchase a new one.
I rated it 3 out of 5 stars because it’s all Biblically accurate, but that’s mostly what it has going for it.
