Young children will love taking part in acting out favourite Bible stories with movement, sounds and actions. From the moment children open their eyes at the start of creation to the final shout "Hooray!" in Revelation, encounter hundreds of fun ways to actively engage with the Bible and enhance children’s understanding of familiar verses. Imaginations will come alive, chirping as birds, twinkling fingers for stars, roaring as lions, waving, marching and jumping around. A lively, fun and interactive way to help children become familiar and recall special Bible moments.
