The Legacy Of Reading Bible-based Books To Your Grandchildren

Grandparents reading

What a joy to see a Grandmother reading to her grandchildren and then years later to their great grandchildren. Why not add a Bible storybook into the mix of those books. We encourage grandparents to have a multitude of Bible-based storybooks to choose from.

Most people that really enjoy reading to kids don’t just read the books, they tell the story. They add questions like, “What would you do?”, “Do you know what that means?” “How many_____ do you see?”

How wonderful to share Bible storybooks and ask those questions as you read the story.

Kids listen and enjoy the interaction. The faith of the grandparent is shown to the grandchild by the time spent reading the Bible stories.

2 Timothy 1:5 

“When I call to remembrance the genuine faith that is in you, which dwelt first in your grandmother Lois and your mother Eunice, and I am persuaded is in you also.”

Paul reminds us of the importance of faith in a grandmother and how it transfers onto grandchildren. What a joyful moment for grandparents and grandchildren to share reading Bible-based books.

If you like what you read, check out our children’s book, Hooked on the Book, on this website.  It is great for parents and kids because it provides the Big Story of God’s miraculous plan for His children in all 66 books in the Bible including colorful illustrations, rhymes and a surprise on every page.

    I’m seriously coendinrisg reading through my ESV Study Bible… Eeek! Not sure that is such a great idea, but wow, I just so need to seriously get into things right now, and last time through it took me so long with trying to coordinate it with the kids. I am SO THRILLED that I don’t have to mess with that part this time. I’ll still have to find time to listen to them.Anyway, I am going to START with the Study Bible. I’ll drop that if it is too overwhelming.
