Zonderkidz The Beginner's Bible Review

The Beginner's Bible {Zonderkidz}

Hey neighbors!

Well, it is time to start up new homeschool reviews for the Homeschool Review Crew.  First on my list this year is The Beginner's Bible, Timeless Children's Stories, from Zonderkidz, division of Zondervan.

Before I begin this review I want to state for all me readers who are KJV only, please remember this is a retelling of Bible accounts for young children.  Yes, they are told in a form young children will understand and yes, they have cartoon type drawings.  Yes, I personally have an issue with calling them stories, as they are true accounts of events that actually happened.  I also want to point out here, that I do not agree with the cartoon ark, as it is not very realistic for the size of the true ark, nor could it hold the amount of animals that were loaded on the ark.

The Beginner's Bible {Zonderkidz}

Now, with that done and out of the way, the Zonderkidz Beginners Bible is written in an an easy to understand manner to begin teaching young children Bible accounts.  You will find many of the well known Biblical events.  This book can easily be read to your child anytime of day.  Bedtime is of course a favorite time for reading out loud.  You can also use this book to encourage your child, at an early age to spend time reading and learning about the Bible daily.

The illustrations are very colorful and will hold a young child's attention.  The accounts have been shortened, quite a bit, to fit a young child's attention span.  For example, Noah's Ark is about 30 sentences long, some of them being two word sentences.  The Beginner's Bible starts with Genesis and works through the New Testament.  They also have a small dictionary at the back to explain a few of the larger words used, like armor or widow.  The book is 511 pages long and has 48 Old Testament accounts and 46 from the New Testament.  The age range for read aloud is 4-6 years of age.  This could also be used once a young child has started to read as they do try to keep the reading level easy.  The Beginner's Bible is the perfect size for young hands and the glossy, pages are pretty sturdy for those young hands to turn pages.

Place this book on a shelf where your child can easily reach it for themselves.  This gives them the ability to at least look through the pictures.  You can also allow them to hold this and browse through as you do family devotions.

You will also find many extra resources on their website to add to your child's learning experience.  They have videos, coloring pages and a free app.

As always, be sure to check out their social media and follow where you can:

What To Do About Those Fuzzy Uninvited Guests In The Home

When we talk about pests in the home, the most common that we tend to deal with are the creepy-crawlies that find their way in. Ants, termites, and spiders, for instance. Occasionally though, you have a real chance of getting a much bigger, fuzzier unwanted guest in the home. What do you do about the fact your home is at risk of becoming a wildlife sanctuary for some truly unhealthy and even dangerous beasts? Picture by Alexas_Fotos Know the signs It doesn’t matter if you’re in a suburban home, a country cottage, or a fourth-floor apartment. Some animals can find their way just about anywhere. It’s worth knowing the signs of pest infestation so you can confirm it and act on it immediately. Spotting droppings, keeping an ear out for scratching, and looking for signs of nesting like shredded paper, scrunched leaves, and grass clippings around the home without explanation can help you start fighting back.

10 Things You Need To Do Before Moving Abroad

From There is nothing more fulfilling than travelling the world and visiting new and exciting places. If you’re a fan of travel , then you might have thought about moving abroad at some point. Unfortunately, there is a lot to do before you can get on the plane, with finding accommodations and a job being the most important.
