The Bible is full of wonderful stories, which all have something important to say, even to the very young. But it takes a special skill with words to help them understand the meanings. The stories in this book have been specially chosen and retold for young readers. All the great names and great events are here. The rhythm and repetition make them ideal for reading aloud with young children, and older ones will enjoy reading them on their own. Complementing the Bible stories are prayers that will help children take their first steps in talking to God. They have been chosen to match everyday experiences in words that children can understand. The simple and appealing words act as starting points to give young readers the confidence to express their hopes and joys in prayers of their own. With over one millions copies of The Lion First Bible sold worldwide, this gift edition brings two much-loved volumes together in an attractive hardback for children to love and treasure.
The Lion First Bible contains more than sixty Bible stories, specially chosen and retold for children. The Lion First Book of Prayers is thematically arranged to reflect a child’s daily experiences and feelings. It incudes a simple paraphrase of the Lord’s Prayer.
