Beginning with God at Christmas helps parents with young children to explore the real Christmas story with their child. Eight Bible stories cover the events of the first Christmas, and a quick introduction to who Jesus is.

This special Christmas edition differs slightly from the regular Beginning with God books. The left side of each page is the same as usual containing the 'main course' which leads toddlers through that day's true story from the Bible. On the right side there is space for the sticker and also a picture to colour in (based on the sticker) that illustrates the story you have been reading about. This colouring picture is in place of the usual Appetiser menu and Snack for the journey. This makes the book even easier to use and especially accessible for families who don't normally read the Bible together.

This Christmas edition provides a simple way to start your child in a regular habit of reading God's word and growing to know God, who loves them. It's an ideal introduction to the full 'Beginning with God' series.

Beginning with God has been designed to work with The Beginner's Bible, but it can also be used with most other infant Bibles.

• Short passages to look at each day
• 22 full-colour stickers
• Works alongside The Beginner's Bible
• Includes a picture of today's story to colour in
• Sections on using the book and praying with a child

Please note that Beginning with God at Christmas uses a selection of stories and illustrations from Beginning with God Book 1.

“Great intro to Beginning with God”

My kids really enjoy this - it's a bit young for my 4 year old but my 2 year old is really enjoying being able to answer the questions, and it's nice to aim something at him for a change! They love the action prayers and the stickers particularly.

HI There! We LOVE this resource. We are using it for our 2-4 yrs leading up to Christmas. Is there any way we can get more stickers for the kids to use for their colouring in sheets?

“Very Satisfied”

Books arrived very quickly. Realising that some that I had bought were too old for the children they were intended for I phoned the company and was dealt with by a very helpful staff member who exchanged them for others which arrived before I'd even sent the wrong ones back. That's good service!.

As enjoyable and helpful as the usual Beginning with God studies for 2-4 year old's, and really helpful in the run up to Christmas. A little disappointed that there were only 5 studies included on the Christmas Story as was hoping to use it as an advent build-up, but apart from that, really great studies. My little one loves them, especially the stickers!!

“My son loves doing this book”

My two and half year old loves this book and can't wait to do his Bible study as he calls it. The colouring and stickers have gone down a treat. It was very straightforward to use and a great way of focusing on Jesus at this time of year.

“Terrific book - looking for the Easter one!”

Terrific - interactive and helpful for engaging with the Beginner's Bible with extra ideas for how to talk with your children about what you're reading.
Going to give it away as gifts for our Playtime Children this Christmas.... we went looking at Easter time for an Easter version.... would be great to find this from the Good Book company next Easter!

“Excellent 1st Bible”

(Review written for 'Beginning with God at Christmas Pack')

I bought this for my 5 year old and she has hardly looked at any other book since getting it! The stories are just the right length to hold her attention and she loves the colourful pictures. Highly recommended for this age group.

My 4 year old son couldn't wait at bedtime each night to do the next part of the story. A brilliant way to introduce the gospel in a simple way to a young child.

“Love it!”

I used this book with my 2 young children, repeating the stories throughout December and we've thoroughly enjoyed it. I read the story and ask the questions etc over breakfast. My 17 month old who is a bit young just enjoys the Bible Story but my three year old loves doing the notes as well as the story. It's brilliant to hear him say excitedly every morning that he wants to read the Bible. I've just had delivered Book 1 of the Beginning with God notes which we are going to start after Christmas and I'm really excited to look at and think about the Bible Stories we'll read more thoroughly. I would definitely recommend this for families with children aged 2 1/2+

“Can we read the bible book daddy?”

How many books can we read before bed-time daddy?
Just one tonight because it's late.
Can we read the bible book daddy?

Do you need any more endorsements!

When will we expect Beginning with God: Book 3, 4, 5 etc...?
