Imagining God’s Story through Motion and Play!
The Play-Along Bible, written by Bob Hartman, and illustrated by Susie Poole, is an adorable, interactive way to introduce children to stories in God’s Word. This allows them to Play-Along (following the prompts) as you read each line of the narrative. The stories are steadily paced, easy to understand, and perfect for daily reading-time rituals.
Appearance: The hardback book is encased in a thick cushiony cover, decorated with colorful images of people, flying creatures, and nature.
Contents: The book contains a table of contents, a brief letter to parents and caregivers explaining what to expect from the book, and continues on to the 102 one-page Bible stories.
Each story section contains:

In God’s Image
Genesis 1:24-31; 2:4-7, 21:23
God said, “Animals!”
And there were wild animals, (Roar like a lion.)
Farm animals, (Moo like a cow.)
And creepy, crawly animals too.
(Move your fingers like a spider.)
Illustrations: Every story is illustrated with charming drawings sure to capture kids’ attention. I like that the characters are various ages and diverse cultures.
My thoughts: This adorable book makes discovering the Bible fun for children and adults. It’s important to spend time with our young ones, and what a blessing it is to know you’re instilling them with not only knowledge and morals, but priceless memories as well.
I recommend this book to any parent, grandparent, or caregiver who wishes to share God’s Word with their little treasures.
