Description

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 color in (based on the sticker) that illustrates the story you have been reading about. This coloring picture is in place of the usual Appetizer 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-color stickers
• Works alongside The Beginner's Bible
• Includes a picture of today's story to color 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.

“Good”

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!

“Brilliant”

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...?

“Brilliant, my 3 yr old loved it”

Really pleased with this series. Only one problem - the stickers can be a little hard to get out and sometimes rip.

“Like the idea of using this book to get youth to understand the meaning of Christmas and Jesus!”

After reviewing this devotion I could see how this would catch the interest of a child and draw them closer to God. I like the idea of starting with Christmas as a way to interests a child who might not otherwise have time to begin a study.

“Excellent Taster”

We've nearly finished our first run through with this material with our two and a half year old.

We've always read a children's Bible with him and have been trying to help him understand more, but the extra elements of simple questions, stickers and colouring pictures really help him to enjoy the time. They help us too, especially if we're a bit tired!

This is a good taster booklet, we hope to start the first book proper after Christmas.
