Okay, maybe I was a little disappointed in the small size but everything else is just perfect. Every page in the Old Testament and New Testament has a short verse in rhyme that reads the significance of a particular person in the bible. It's short and right to the point! The illustrations are beautiful and the pages are good quality. If there was a board book version, I would have bought this for my 13 month old son a lot sooner. This is his actual "first" bible and I'm including it in his Easter basket. Would also make an excellent Baptism gift.

Our infant son is still too young to understand words, let alone read, but we wanted to expose him to reading from a very early age. We also wanted to expose him to Christian message, and especially the stories from the Bible. After looking around at several different options I came across this little book. It seemed like an ideal first exposure to the Bible, and a great way to read to a really small child. I can sit him on my lap and hold the book right in front of him. I can read and show him the illustrations while holding him, something that has proven difficult with much larger books.

The book is really tastefully and beautifully illustrated. The illustrations are really well done and will certainly appeal to kids of all ages. Roughly half of the book is dedicated to the Old Testament and the Other Half to the New Testament. The Old Testament includes a snapshots of some of the best known stories - Adam and Eve in the Garden of Eden, Moses parting the Red Sea, Daniel in the Lions' den, etc. The New Testament part is exclusively the Gospel accounts of some of the highlights from the life of Jesus. Each little "story" combines an illustration and four verses on the opposing page. I was worried that the verses might be corny, but they turned out to be quite well written. They are amusing and get the gist of the message that each episode is trying to convey. The verses can be used as a springboard for deeper discussion of the given Biblical stories.

We just love this little book. I expect to read it very often in the upcoming months and years. Would definitely recommend it to parents of small children who want to expose their children to the Biblical stories from an early age.

HIS FIRST BIBLE is a beautifully-illustrated story book for baby's first introduction to the Bible. One four-line verse per page, with a colorful picture, is a wonderful way for a small child to meet well-known Bible personalities. It is appropriate for the very youngest child and must be read aloud.

I really expected to love this little (and it's little) book based on the reviews I read, but I am actually considering returning it. It's a beautifully illustrated little book and I continue to reread it hoping I can convince myself to give it to my great-nephew for his Baptism, but I just find the sweet little rhyming sentences to make no sense to a little one.

I suppose you can say that it 'plants a seed' as I read from another reviewer, but I don't see that. Before purchase, I had read the first couple of pages that Amazon allowed me to preview and I thought ok, that is sweet ("God spoke to the night 'Let there be light!' And all the world grew sunny and bright"). But then it just jumps on through with pages such as, "Rebekah did her part God knew she was smart. She gave the camels water And won Isaac's heart." or "A coat of bright colors Angered the brothers, For Jacob loved Joseph More than the others." ... then it jumps onto another chapter and so on.

I get it that it is supposed to be only an 'introduction' to the bible, but these words mean nothing to a child and as the adult, I would find it difficult to elaborate into words so that a child can understand. I guess I just expected more of a simplifacation of God's creation and love for his children (words that comfort a child).

I don't want to recommend that you not purchase it. It's just that in my opinion, it will not make any sense at all to a child or make him wonder/ponder about it ever. I even read this book to my husband and he actually disliked it. He said it makes no sense.His First Bible

I purchased one of these for my grandson and was tickled to death with it when it arrived. I liked it so well, I immediately ordered another one for my other grandson (his little brother).

Most baby's bibles are simply small regular bibles with tiny print, some just have the New Testament. Those are nice little keepsakes, but I don't consider them practical for actual use. Babies have notoriously short attention spans. This thin little bible is perfect for reading to a little one and introducing them to the Word without overwhelming them. You could call it a summary of bible highlights. Starting with God creating light and moving through to the NT, each page has a short one or two line rhyme that describes an important point in the bible with a charming illustration on the facing page.

I got this product for my son, it works well for him because he is only 3 months old. I wouldn't recommend for an older child, the book is very small and mostly pictures which is what makes it perfect for me. The size makes it easy to travel with because it fits very well into his diaper bag.
