YouVersion - Technology is wonderful. My husband and I usually have our phones on us or nearby, so downloading a Bible app has been a great way to have the Bible right at our fingertips in any given moment. We like to read the "verse of the day" to our children at breakfast. We even play a game with it where the kids have to guess where the verse comes from in the Bible. They usually don't know, so we give hints to help them. Then, we talk about what the verse means. We keep it brief and simple. It is a time for us to be encouraged and move on with our day.
YouVersion: The Bible App for Kids - This is a wonderful idea for kids to play and learn about the Bible too. My small children love tapping on the pictures to see what they will do.
When small children are concerned, it helps to keep things simple. We have found that using children's Bibles and simplified Bible stories are great for teaching and bonding time with our kids. Here are some that we have used and love:
The Beginner's Bible - Very simple and colorful pictures
Bible Stories to Read - This has a corresponding coloring book which can make a nice keepsake.
ESV Seek and Find Bible - Although the ESV is not my preferred Bible version, I like that this Bible has simplified stories with follow-up comprehension questions spread all throughout. This makes a good transition for a child who is starting to read independently. Upon writing this post, I have learned that this Bible is no longer in print. However, I'm sure there are other Bibles with similar format.
Read and Share Devotional - This is one that is wonderful to read to younger children. We wore this book out and then lost it. It's on my wishlist to buy again because I love it so much. It includes activities to do with your child and focuses on character traits as well as bible stories. There are also four volumes of Read and Share Bible DVDs which are great and not overstimulating for smaller children. If I had to choose just one favorite book to purchase for little ones, this would be it.
Jesus Calling: 365 Devotions for Kids - Once my son was good at reading, he received this devotional as a gift. He loves to read this at bedtime.
Since we homeschool, we include Bible as one of our subjects. We could simply count Bible reading as sufficiently fulfilling the course objective (which we have done), but sometimes we prefer a curriculum to follow and guide us through our Bible study.
Character Building For Families, Volume 1 - This is our choice curriculum for this year. In the past, I have led our children in Bible time at the start of our school time. This year, we have changed our day up a bit so that we have Bible time in the evenings with Daddy. So far, we are liking it. Our older two children are doing well understanding the scripture reading and concepts taught. Although my preschooler is picking up some things along the way, this curriculum is a little too advanced for her age and maturity level. Still, it is good training for the little ones to learn how to sit still and quiet while listening to Daddy teach us during family Bible time.
Studying God's Word: Book C - This is a great workbook that a child who is reading can work through independently. My son used this when he was a second grader.
