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. I appreciate that even in an infant's Bible the pictures are accurate.
The text is wonderful. On every page on the left there are two rhyming verses and on the right is a full size picture. The first verse (as an example):
"Little one, who made the seas?
Who made the birds? Who made the bees?
Who made the sun all big and bright?
And twinkly stars to shine at night?
God made them all. Oh yes it's true.
Yes, little one, and God made you."
Every story has a title, Scripture refrence, and then a rhyming story with a message. Here are all the stories:
1. God Makes Everything (Genesis 1-2) Message: God made everything including you
2. God rescues Noah from the storm (Genesis 6-9) Message: God cares for and protects you
3. God helps baby Moses (Exodus 1-2) Message: God cares for you everyday in every area
4. Little David beats Goliath (1 Samuel 17) Message: God helps little children like you
5. God Saves Daniel in the Lion's Den (Daniel 6) Message: God keeps you in His care no matter where you are
6. Baby Jesus is born (Luke 2) Message: Jesus came to be with you
7. Jesus stops a storm (Mark 4) Message: Jesus is Lord of all and he answers when you call
8. Jesus loves Zacchaeus (Luke 19) Message: Jesus loves you
9. Jesus is Alive! (Matthew 27-28) Message: Jesus died to make us new and that is something to celebrate
10. Jesus loves little children (Mark 10 and Psalm 135:4) Message: You are unique, created by God, and Jesus is your shepherd who loves you
The one complaint I have about this Bible is that the cover does not detach which means it is spot clean only. I could imagine that after being drug around by a toddler for a while this book will need to be replaced. But. That is a small complaint compared to the excellence of this Bible. Highly recommended for ages newborn-4.
Good quality board for a board book
Fun wooly outside.
On the top of each page it has a heading that you can read instead of the text underneath.
Its too heavy for my 19 month old to carry
Pictures were only on half of each page
The fuzzy wool appears used even if you buy it brand new out of the box
There is too many words for this to be a "baby" hug-a-bible.
Overall: This box would work better for a kindergarten aged child. My 19 month old toddler LOVES to read and in fact points out objects and says words that follow stories of books. However this book is much to wordy for her. It is more of a "Child" bible not "baby" bible. The texture on the outside is fun but I can see sticky hands ruining it pretty fast. I will have to re-introduce it to her when she is older.
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.
