God’s Little Lambs Bible Stories is recommended for ages 3-8 and has a total of 35 stories all together. These stories are broken down by the Old Testament (17 stories) and the New Testament (18 stories).
The stories are short and written in a way that is a little different than the traditional Bible stories, but are perfect for grabbing the little ones attention.
At the start of each story are Bible verse recommendations to go along with the Bible story and at the end of each story you’ll find a prayer that your child can say along with you or repeat.
All in all both of my boys (ages 5 & 9) have enjoyed reading these stories together. We haven’t quit completed the book yet, but we are pretty close.
God’s Little Lambs Bible Stories can be found at your local book retailer or online at stores like Zondervan.
