The fun-time, anytime read-aloud Bible rhyme! Boys and girls love the soothing rhyme in L.J. Sattagast’s bestseller The Rhyme Bible. Now toddlers have a Bible rhyme book designed just for them! From the story of creation (“In the beginning God made the light. The light was for day. The dark was for night.”) to the resurrection of Jesus (“All his friends were happy then. Jesus was alive again!”), this is the perfect choice for parents who want to introduce their toddlers to the Word of God. Joyful illustrations and classic stories told in vivid verse make this a sure favorite that will entertain your young ones and teach them biblical lessons that last a lifetime.
I ended up with this toddler version by a blesseded accident as I meant to get the full version for participation in the Animal Play Curriculum for our two-year old homeschool year. I could not be more pleased in the end. The rhymes are a perfect length for my toddler to repeat after me and really get some of the stories and learning new words. Currently we start the morning with a section from the Rhyme Storybook Bible and the in the afternoon (when there is a toddler version of said verses) we read along together in a repeat after me fsshion in the toddler version. I love this special time with her!

And now they can enjoy thirty-five delightful, classic Bible stories retold in lilting verse and rollicking, read-aloud rhyme in The Rhyme Bible Storybook. Rhyming books are always among children’s best-loved treasures, and The Rhyme Bible Storybook is certain to become a well-worn favorite! Filled with vivid, joyful illustrations, each story teaches important Bible truths while giving children a reading time that’s packed with giggles, chuckles, and fun!
After realizing that I really needed this version to go along with the curriculum I ordered myself a copy. After reading and reviewing the toddler version I knew that this would be worth every penny and I was not wrong. This one is bigger and thicker. There are about eight to ten lines per page as opposed to four three word phrases. It’s like taking the next step up and it’s fabulous. This will be great for years to come. She listens to this one and doesn’t repeat the rhymes, but I think one day she’ll be ready for longer ones and this one will be perfect.
