'Taste and see that the Lord is good.' - Psalm 34 v 8

Beginning with God helps parents with young children to explore the Bible with their child. This book 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.

We hope this book will help you and your child to explore the Bible together. Along the way you will meet Moses; read about God’s special family the Israelites; and be thrilled by the wonderful things said and done by God’s perfect Son, Jesus. But most of all, we hope that reading God's special book, the Bible, will help your child to know God, who loves them.

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

Special offer - Get The Beginner's Bible and Beginning with God - Book One for just £12.92 In today's culture so much pressure is put on us to feed our children well. We pray that this material will help those of us with pre-schoolers to nourish them with the word of God.

Each day is split into the following sections:

The main course: read today's true story from the Bible; answer some simple questions; pray together; then stick in today's colourful picture of the story.

Appetiser: an optional activity to grab your child's attention before the story.

A snack for the journey: a conversation to have while out and about.

Make it and munch it: optional craft activities to help your child remember today's true story.

Colourful sticker set included with book.

“Excellent introduction to bible studies”

We are revisiting this series with out daughter after using them with our son.
Now our son reads the bible story as we come together as a family to explore God's word together.
Our three year old has loved listening to the passage, answering the questions and praying together.
I would recommend this series to all preschool families

“Great Resource”

(Review written for 'Beginning with God: The Collection')

A great resource for teaching toddlers the stories of the Bible and applying them to their lives - we use it with them in Sunday School.

“Well pitched for toddlers”

(Review written for 'Beginning with God: The Collection')

Bought the bundle for my 3 year old and so far can be adapted to use with a different children's bible which is useful. Well pitched for attention span with some fun ideas to engage, and stickers are always a win (although our book 1 stickers were not all present and correct, but hopefully this will not be the case for everyone).

“Great for preschoolers, manageable for parents”

(Review written for 'Beginning with God: The Collection')

I think this is an excellent resource. I always have sth I can use for the suggested intro activity that I can lay my hands on in a couple of minutes so I'm not put off doing it by lengthy prep. It's repetitive in its format which is great for a preschooler, brief enough to be manageable daily(ish!), and engaging enough that they are keen to do it more often than not. I bought all three books after just a few days of the first one!

“Myriad of ways to use this excellent resource”

(Review written for 'Beginning with God: The Collection')

Revisiting this with my nearly 5 year old child who enjoyed these as a toddler. It is excellent. She is enjoying engaging more with it this time around. The hands up (wow God!) And hands in prayer section is short for their limited attention spans.
We also used this as a crèche team for the main teaching curriculum for over a year.
Children this age can repeat several times over in many contexts and still benefit every time.
It is currently helping our daily devotional times to be concise, practical and enable me to have in mind teaching as we go through the day together. Priceless moments of teaching for very little parental effort. We use it for our home education morning time as a family group as well. It would also easily be a good outreach event programme for a toddler group etc. It makes a great gift for others in your church or who are interested in their children learning the Bible who have no understanding themselves.
Thanks for a great resource!

“EXCELLENT DAILY READINGS FOR CHILDREN”

(Review written for 'Beginning with God: The Collection')

I bought the Daily Bible Readings, in appropriate ages, for my 2 grand daughters. They are excellent, as are all books sold by the GoodBook Company.

“A super resource”

(Review written for 'Beginning with God: The Collection')

I've used The Beginner's Bible for a while and made-up my own activities. Stumbled upon this resource and it's fantastic. My 2 1/2 year old loves it but could easily be adapted for up to 5/6 year olds.
Fun activities and thoughtful questions all with the bonus of getting a sticker when completed!!

“Excellent”

This is a great addition to the daily routine and gets children into the swing of reading the bible each day, and gives a basis for 'right and wrong', 'grace and law' etc etc type discussions that underpin family life. Kids enjoy it too and look forward to it.

“Great resource for toddlers”

This is a great buy. It is book 2 of the Beginning with God series. Each day there are suggestions for a starter activity, instructions for which story to read, simple questions, a prayer and ideas for a way of introducing the theme into a conversation later in the day. It is perfectly pitched for pre-schoolers. We don't always manage to do every bit suggested for each day, but it's great to have the options so when time (and her mood!) allows, we have it available. My just-turned two year old loves the stories and the stickers. Often I find I have to answer the questions myself (!) but as she gets older I'm sure she will become more involved in this section. For now, she is getting into a good routine of bible reading and enjoying related crafts and chat. Thank you to the Beginning with God team for another useful resource.

“Highlight of dinner time!”

We do what's now known as 'Bible Sticker Time' with our 3 year old son and 11 month old daughter every night once we've had our dinner. The introductory ideas are so imaginative (and are often played throughout the next day). I've just been amazed by how much my son takes it. He really understands the story and the questions. The prayer ideas are great for getting him praying somewhat independently. We're on Book 3 now and will look forward starting with Book 1 again in a few weeks!
