I AM

40 Reasons to Trust God

Creator. Comforter. Healer. Friend. God’s names tell us who He is, what He is like, and what He does. This beautiful book covers forty of the Bible’s many names and descriptive titles for God, Jesus, and the Holy Spirit, including Jehovah Jireh, The Lord My Shepherd, Immanuel, Rabbi, and I Am.

Through Bible stories, short devotions, and prayers, children discover the meaning of each name and how it relates to their lives. As they develop understanding of God’s character and His love for them, children will grow to know, love, and trust the great I Am more and more.

“Those who know your name put their trust in you.” —Psalm 9:10

Reader Reviews

One of the very best children’s books I’ve purchased. Captivating artwork, well-written text. Absolutely perfect for the designated age level. I’m a mom of three,grandmother of two,and have taught Pre-K for the last 7 years. I highly recommend it. —review on amazon.com

My daughter has often questioned the many names for God and I don’t always have an answer for her. This book is the perfect way to introduce the many names of God to your kids. And for adults too! So much goodness in this book. It will be a permanent fixture on our bookshelves for sure. —review on amazon.com

Say & Pray Bible

First Words, Stories, and Prayers

Curl up together and experience the Bible in a fresh, new way. Babies, toddlers, and young preschoolers will enjoy pointing to and naming objects on each page for early learning.

Most important, they’ll discover favorite, age-appropriate Bible stories, with Scripture verses and short prayers that also hide God’s Word in young hearts.

After hearing a story and pointing to objects in the illustration, little ones can “say and pray” the related Bible verse and prayer with each story too.

Makes a perfect baby gift or birthday gift—a book to grow on!

Reader Reviews

I love this Bible. More importantly, my 17-month-old son loves it. Each entry is perfect bedtime length, and pointing to and naming the various images and characters is very engaging where he’s at in his development. I’m a pastor, and we’ll be making this a gift to all new parents and babies as part of our baby dedications. —Chris Travis

As you can see on the cover photo, many of the pictures are labeled. I adore that feature so much because it is great for early letter recognition and pre-reading skills. Overall, this book is a hit for everyone in our family! —review on amazon.com

I like how few the words are for the actual Bible story because it holds the attention of little ones while explaining the story in easy-to-understand language. I also like how lots of items in each picture are labeled with their names because young children will love to point at each one. What a great way to learn how to read while learning Bible stories! This is a solid tool for any parent who wants to help their little ones on the road to reading success while growing in their love for God’s Word. —Nancy I. Sanders

My four-year-old is nonverbal and I’d been seeking a very basic children’s Bible for him. Say and Pray Bible was exactly what I was looking for. Text is minimal, pictures are simple but interesting, and all people and objects are clearly labeled—from the animals on Noah’s ark to basic family roles (Ruth and Boaz are Mommy and Daddy, Naomi is Grandma). I highly recommend the Say and Pray Bible for young toddlers and/or nonverbal and minimally verbal children. —review on amazon.com

Reader Reviews

This book is a “must have” for parents, grandparents, other family and friends who care about growing Bible literacy in the 4- to 8-year-olds they know and love. When I read selections from this book to my grandsons and granddaughters (in different families), they all have the same reaction: “Can we read another story?” —review on amazon.com

As a person of color, I am often frustrated when books, especially those geared toward a Christian audience, fail to reflect the various hues of the human race. . . . The illustrations included here, however, are all encompassing—peaches, browns, and every tone in between. I am convinced that this was intentional and that makes me smile. —review on amazon.com

Gorgeous illustration and design, words that matter, messages your kids will understand—this Bible storybook is no less than the title promises, a dream. —Amy Parker, amyparkerbooks.blogspot.com

Reader Reviews

“I was skeptical about this book, as glitter-gilded and rainbow-infused as it is. I was afraid it would be over-the-top with the “sugar and spice and everything nice” and low on substance. Well, I was pleasantly surprised. It is a good, sturdy Bible storybook that just happens to be decorated to match the aesthetic preferences of the average four-year-old girl. And I was even more pleasantly surprised to find that the book spotlights many important women in the Bible who aren’t always given their due attention, including women from Acts and the Epistles! My daughters love hearing the stories, and of course have special affection for the rosy illustrations. I am glad I chose to review this book as they will get many hours of joy and enrichment from it.” —review on amazon.com

“I am often suspicious when it comes to books like these. This time, I was quite pleased. The “Bible” (of course, it is really Bible stories with Scripture) is nicely illustrated and seems soundly written. . . . After each story there is a verse to think on and a little saying that sums up the lesson learned. Girls will like this book as it is pink and sparkly. I thought they did a nice job and it is aptly described as a sweet book. It would make a lovely gift for a little girl to start sowing the seed of the Word of God in her heart that will lead her to salvation!” —review on amazon.com

The illustrations are beautiful. There aren’t too many words per page. And I love that the Scripture reference is included for each of the eight stories. —review on amazon.com

At bedtime, on a trip, or while tucking your little one in, this is the perfect little book for planting the harvest of love, faith, and God’s promises. Choosing to give this as a baby gift, or a baptismal gift, or just for a little one’s birthday will be a blessing that will last a lifetime. Consider this as a “Read It Forward” investment. —review on amazon.com

One of my favorite things about this story Bible is that it is even perfect for beginner readers. The words are simple, but the message is strong. This Bible will be used regularly for many years to come, and I hope one day [my daughter] passes it to her own daughter. —review on amazon.com
