Honestly I'm thrilled with this little Bible. Now that my daughter is starting to take interest in board books and being read to (she's 2 1/2 months) I wanted to find an age-appropriate Bible with good theology, short but catchy text, and strong supporting illustrations. I thought that would be a relatively easy task but I was so surprised!

I am so happy that Amazon happened to recommend the Hug-A-Bible to me becasue of my purchase of Sally Lloyd-Jone's The Jesus Storybook Bible: Every Story Whispers His Name (an excellent children's Bible but more appropriate for school aged children). With Lloyd Jones I knew the theology would be good so I broke my rule of looking at children's books before buying and ordered it.

I was initially surprised (and pleased) at the size of the Bible. I had assumed it was standard board book size but it's actually double that at nearly 12" tall. The cover is, in fact, hugable. Despite this being a solid board book, the furry cover (which looks like sheep's wool) makes the book incredible soft and nearly stuffed animal like. The book also appears to be well built and will probably withstand being carried around by a toddler.

Now on to the content. The illustrations are bright and beautiful using primary colors. They are simple and contrasty enough to engage even a very young infant but also colorful and detailed enough to capture the attention of a busy toddler. Another thing I like about the illustrations is that all the people have a nice tan color and have black circles for their eyes. I think it is important to teach that Jesus was not a white man with blue eyes ... He grew up in a specific culture with a specific heritage.

Was in search of the most recently-released, latest and greatest bible board book for a baptism gift and was pleased to stumble upon this bible board book. It's covered in a faux sheep-like fabric to live up to its title, which allows baby to do just that -- hug the bible. :) This bible comes boxed, ready and appropriate for gift-giving. The age range, which is newborn to age four, is indicated on the back of the box. This bible is definitely Christian but non-denominational. The length of the book is simple enough to hold a baby's attention with its illustrations. It includes popular bible stories that rhyme, making it easy to read for baby to keep up with. If you're literally looking for a baby's first bible in a board book format that baby can actually hold, snuggle and play with, and (if you let them) chew on, search no further!

My three year old picks this bible out of all the others every night. It is pretty basic and simple. She has it memorized. It is great for a little one with a short attention span. Her's has a furry outside. She likes to sleep with it at night which is sort of funny. Don't know how to clean it but oh well.

This is SUPER cute, but the Bible stories all say the same thing in the rhyme, they don't actually tell a Bible story, they just say things like "God saved _____ (Noah, Daniel, etc.) too... and yes little one, He loves you!" One of the poems doesn't even rhyme, in fact, it appears to be a typo. This may make a cute gift, but for real Bible teaching, go with another Bible. I like the "Lift the Flap Bible" by Sally Lloyd Jones. Great shortened version of Bible stories for children, fun flaps to open. Our toddler definately prefers the Flap Bible to the Hug a Bible.

If you like this book, you'll be glad to know that some Nashville musicians have just released an album that sets this book to music!

It's called Rain For Roots, and you can grab it on [...]

I've got no affiliation with the musicians; it's just good stuff!

This Bible is for the toddler set, and contains five Old Testament and five New Testament stories all told in rhyming poems. The reader is often directly addressed as “Little One,” which my little one enjoyed. As always, Sally Lloyd-Jones writes beautifully. Her retellings highlight the main parts of a story as well as a truth about God. For example, in “Jesus Stops a Storm” from Mark 4, the poem concludes with “His name is Jesus – Lord of all. And he will answer when you call.” My only nitpick is that based on the text, you might think Zacchaues was literally blind because he was short (“Zacchaeus was too short to see.”)! Also, Sandra McCracken and others have come up with music using the lyrics from this text in Rain for Roots. It’s a pretty mellow CD that we enjoy listening to at rest time.

I bought this for my almost 9 month baby boy. He has "tale of three tree" boardbook but wanted to buy him the first bible.
There are less than 10 stories but they are very encouraging and showing lots of love from God.
The cover and the back is in fuzzy (kind of like big huge lint) type.
They are quite big I have to say but very nice introduction to baby as a bible.
If the books are made with cloth type, it would have been better so that baby actually can hug the book or even use as a pillow to sleep on it.
SLeeping with bible would be very nice.
