But if you are still looking to by a few gifts for the kids in your life, might I recommend some meaningful books?
Each of these books will help your child to learn the stories of the bible and its truths. They are beautiful, well-written and affordable. Almost all are around $7-$12 and are available on Amazon, so you can totally get them in time for Christmas. (And if you don’t have Amazon Prime, sign up for a free-trial and get a month of free 2-day shipping. We couldn’t live without Amazon Prime in our house!)
The Jesus Storybook Bible: Every Story Whispers His Name by Sally Lloyd Jones – without question, this is my favorite children’s bible. A must-have. It brings scripture to life for both me and my kids.
Thoughts to Make Your Heart Sing by Sally Lloyd Jones -This is Sally’s newest book and it is simply beautiful. Moreover, the content is excellent. In it are 101 simple devotionals that are perfect for families to read together.
Deep Blue Kids Bible: Diving Deep into God’s Word: This bible is geared toward kids 7-12. It is a full-bible (CEB translation) – not a bible storybook – and has color throughout. I think the layout, notes, devotions, etc. make it super kid friendly.
Jesus Calling: 365 Devotions For Kids The Jesus Calling devotional is phenomenal, so I was thrilled that Sarah Young adapted its language in a way for kids and tweens can relate to their everyday lives (I already gave our copy away as a gift, which is why I pictured the adult version. )
Jesus Calling Bible Storybook I really love the format of this children’s bible. The stories are very digestible and each one ends with a Jesus Calling kids devotional. I really like alternating reading from it and the Jesus Storybook Bible.
Totally Awesome, Super-Cool Bible Stories as Drawn by Nerdy Ned– I got this book to give to my nephew this year.It combines International Children’s Bible® text with funny illustrations to bring to life beloved Bible stories.
Hide and Seek Devotional: This book is darling and perfect for young kids. It takes 26 Old Testament and 26 New Testament verses to create an engaging year-long devotional for kids. Included in the book is a free download of 52 songs and Bible stories narrated by Kirk Cameron.
