Say & Pray Bible: First Words, Stories, and Prayers

Reed4Today I’m CELEBRATING the release of my new book, Say & Pray Bible: First Words, Stories, and Prayers!

It is JUST RIGHT, truly age appropriate, for introducing little ones to God’s Word!

There are 20 stories, 10 Old Testament and 10 New Testament. The stories are SHORT … just one sentence (or two very short sentences). Here’s one.

Baby in a Basket

Little baby Moses slept in a basket while his sister watched.

Yup, that’s it!

But there’s also a Scripture reference (Exodus 2) plus a short Bible verse and a short little prayer.

Say and Pray

He cares for you. –1 Peter 5:7

Thank You, God, for sisters and brothers! Amen.

Did I mention the stories are SHORT?!

Babies and toddlers LOVE turning pages. So that much text is about all they will absorb until they are older.

Some days you might just read the stories. Another day, just the verses. Yet another reading, just the prayers.

And some days, you might just talk about the pictures—bright, simple, whimsical illustrations by Sarah Ward. Objects in the artwork are LABELED (I am SO HAPPY about this!).

Because toddlers love to POINT and NAME pictures of objects and people they are learning to recognize and say!

Reed3It’s all wrapped up in a sturdy board book with rounded corners and a padded hard cover–practically indestructible!

The little boy in the photos is my #3 grandson. He loves his books and naming and pointing to objects in the pictures, and he was the inspiration for this book!

SayPrayThumbnailI’m putting copies in the mail today for grandsons #2 and #4.

(Grandson #1 turns 8 this week, and he’s been busy reading my Words to Dream On and Devotions for New Readers by my friend Crystal Bowman and Christy Lee Taylor.)

And I’m praying for SOOOO many little ones to learn of God and hear his word (in many languages, I hope!) with this book for years and years to come!
