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!

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.

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.

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!

I never would have thought my daughter would yell "Bible, Bible, Bible!" for her bedtime story, but that's what she did last night! My husband finds it a little "too sweet", but I don't mind reading it at all. I love how this book focuses on the message of God's love in addition to the literal story. For example, the story of Moses is described: "Who loved that baby in the reeds? Who knows just what a baby needs?" putting more emphasis on how God cares for us than simply that Moses was sent down the Nile in a basket. This would be a great baptism gift in a tote bag with "Lost Sheep: A Touch and Feel Book" by Caroline Jayne Church and some Munchkin snack holders as a church kit.

I bought this for our son, and I love the art and rhyming synthesis of biblical truths. My only concern is that the fleecy white cover will get easily dirty and dusty.
