My first reading experience with Zonderkidz was when Uncle P gifted my son a Beginners Bible from Zonderkidz.I was more excited than my little boy as it was a pleasure to read such a lovely little Bible. I liked it so much that I shared it with all of you ( link). Zondervan has a wonderful collection of books for children and it's called Zonderkidz as a section dedicated to children.I adore the Zonderkidz collection and hope to feature more reviews in the future.
I was excited to receive a box filled with books from Zonderkidz. We already read some of it for bedtime today and my little book worm loves them! I will be posting first about the Christmas books so that you have them by Christmas!
This Christmas wrap these books beautifully and let your children discover some special Christmas stories!
Stan and Jan Berenstain introduced the first Berenstain Bear books in 1962 and almost 40+ years now..they are as adorable as they were and still continue to teach children about the life values and story illustrations for scriptures. For little minds, it is a wonderful way to understand the meaning of the verses. In this edition, while participating in the yearly Christmas play at church, Brother and Sister Bear learn that it is better to give than to receive. Brother and Sister Bear learn this valuable lesson on the stage when they see what God gave us out of His love for us..a truly heart warming story for a little child!
Christmas time spells gifts for every child and this book will help them understand how joyful it is to give! Though my toddler is still in the stage of "my, my, mine", reading this story as he grows will help him experience the joy of giving !
This colourful and sparkly book written by Dandi Daley and brilliantly illustrated by Michle Noiset is about a lucky little boy who gets to celebrate Christmas in 17 different states from Alaska to Maine.My son loved the sound of this book ( not because mommy reads in an animated voice!) because of the rhyming words used throughout this book.
"... A choir of one hundred or possibly more,
I never got chills just from singing before."
When he finally gets home, he realizes what Christmas is all about and thinks about the Saviour who is the true meaning of Christmas.
This book made me laugh! It is a really funny story about the 3 wise men and I am still giggling as I write about them.While I liked the way Mike Thaler has compiled the story of the wisemen's journey to see Baby Jesus, I wasn't sure if the pictures like a comic strip does justice to the hilarious story. Maybe a 9 yr old will understand the comic strip sequence and laugh along. But this will be an unforgettable Christmas story that your child would like to hear over and over again.
The I CAN READ series from Zonderkidz is a treasure chest of 120 books for different levels of reading.
This is a great Christmas story that you can read to your child and encourage him/her to read along. The page is filled with a big picture against a white background and just 3 well spaced lines in every page. I recently started Dr.Seuss young readers collection for my son. When this book arrived, I am happy to have him listen to the greatest story ever told! I wish the illustrations were more simpler and the angels didn't look like transformers!
What better present than a Storybook Bible for Christmas?! This Storybook Bible is written by world-renowned Nobel Peace Prize Winner Archbishop Desmond Tutu with global appeal.He is known for his great love for children as well as his powerful and profound understanding of the message of Jesus Christ.Every story shows how God works through history and ends with a short prayer, which personalizes the message for each reader's own life.
This is a global Chldren's Bible - artists from all over the world were invited to illustrate the stories using their artistic talents.It makes every story a unique piece with their art exhibited from different cultural backgrounds. The English is simple and suitable for a child and the stories are short and don't run for more than 1 or 2 pages. It's truly a special Christmas gift!
