Jesus Storybook Bible Advent

Hi friends! We are coming up on the holiday season FAST and I really should have posted this a month ago or even a week ago but life happens and better late than never.

I wanted to share my favorite Advent reading for children and families. This is not a sponsored post, just something we really love.

The Jesus Storybook Bible from Zondervan is a beautiful telling of Bible stories that shows Gods plan from the beginning of time. It speaks to the reader and makes the stories relate-able and even funny. My boys call this book “the stinky foot Bible”, which you will see why in one of the stories.

We aren’t always great at Bible reading consistency, but I find it especially important at this time of year when we can all get so wrapped up in the buying, giving and general busyness that this next month brings. We can all use a reminder of the reason we are celebrating this Christmas season,  Jesus coming for us. EACH ONE OF US!

I started this Bible reading two years ago for advent season for my two older boys who were 7 and 3 at the time and even though the stories are short, it was a little too much for my three year old to sit and listen. Now however, they are both very engaged and my youngest who is three plays while we read but still is listening and looking at the pictures, which by the way are awesome!

Here is a FREE printable to go along with the Bible Advent readings. There is one for each day with a picture on the front and the scripture reading on the back. I like to put these in our Advent calendar (along with a candy, of course!) and then let the kids find the matching picture in our book. The readings will take you from the very beginning all the way to Jesus birth; telling of Gods love that is “Never stopping, never giving up, unbreaking, always and forever love”. It is beautifully written and you will be moved no mater how old you are.

This is the perfect chance to get your kids (and your whole family) in the habit of Bible reading! My boys wanted to keep reading every day last year so we could finish the whole Bible. These are stories and lessons that will stick with them for the rest of their lives. I know first hand the importance of knowing these lessons and knowing this “never stopping, always and forever LOVE”. If you are new to the Bible, this is a great chance to learn together the basics and if you have any questions feel free to ask me here or send me a private message on Instagram or Facebook.

So, get the book HERE from Amazon for about $10 or from FaithGateway who is offering free shipping till the 12th.

The FREE printable is HERE.

And if you are really lazy (or just awesome!) you can get the DVD’s HERE which is great watching and easy for the kids to do while you bake all the cookies.

So you may not start tomorrow, unless you run out to the bookstore today or get it on Kindle but even if you take a few days to catch up or double up on reading; you will be glad you did.

Make this holiday season one to remember with these short stories bringing the focus on the meaning of Christmas.

    […] My simple wall hanging with pockets, which I’m using as an Easter Advent Calendar of sorts, is perfect for putting little treats into or even fun little note cards for your kids. My boys are excited to have 20 days of treats leading up to and following Easter and this gives us the perfect opportunity for daily Bible readings on the life of Jesus (from our super fun Jesus Storybook Bible, of course! Which you can read more about HERE). […]
