The Biggest Story ABC
From Adam and Eve in the garden of Eden to Zion and the new creation world, the Bible is telling one big story—the story of God's promise to deliver his people. Kevin DeYoung, best-selling author of The Biggest Story, has written a new board book to help kids ages 1 to 3 to make connections from Genesis to Revelation and from A to Z. Each page introduces a new letter of the alphabet with engaging and whimsical illustrations from award-winning artist Don Clark, retelling the biblical narrative in one continuous story. This board book is a fun way for parents to introduce their small children to the big story of the Bible.

    Jesus Wins. The Christian message told by the ABC's - starting in the Garden with Adam and ending in Zion. The gospel with who God is and what he has done brings your child and you to the Good news. Each letter is given to the gospel and in doing so, your child is learning their ABC's by sight and sound. With colorful illustrations, it engages a family devotion of redemption.Will be purchasing these for my grandchildren!

    A Different & Unusual ABC Board BookMost ABC board books for small children use the letters of the alphabet to focus on a single word like Apple or Ball. Instead Kevin DeYoung tells the story of creation, the fall of mankind, then the message of the Old Testament melds into the salvation of the world through God sending Jesus Christ.

Instead Kevin DeYoung tells the story of creation, the fall of mankind, then the message of the Old Testament melds into the salvation of the world through God sending Jesus Christ. The combination of the focused message is combined with the beautiful illustrations from Don Clark. Instead of the normal where each letter is focused on a single word, DeYoung has the particular word in a sentence for that letter. For example, M “They needed a Messiah to make things right.” Or N “But God’s people were Naughty almost all the time.” The distinctions make the text more flexible than the normal ABC book and entertaining for young children. The creative twists with THE BIGGEST STORY ABC make this book a hit with young readers and something parents will enjoy reading repeatedly. I recommend this book.

    This is a beautifully simple, theologically sound ABC storybook. The overall story of the Bible is all there and flows smoothly even with the alphabetical constraints. Though geared for children ages 1-3, I think a slightly older child could memorize this book and have a good basic understanding of God’s story. It’s written well and has interesting though somewhat abstract pictures to go with each page.This is the board book version of “The Biggest Story: How the Snake Crusher Brings Us Back to This is a beautifully simple, theologically sound ABC storybook.

    I loved "The Biggest Story: How the Snake Crusher Brings Us Back to the Garden" and didn't think you could net the essence of the Bible down to much shorter of a story but Kevin DeYoung has done it with his new book "The Biggest Story ABC Board Book. In 26 phrases he has captured the essence of God's love for his people (us!) and how Jesus not only rescues us from our sins but is our Victor and how we will get to live with him some day.I recommend this board book for everyone who wants to unders I loved "The Biggest Story: How the Snake Crusher Brings Us Back to the Garden" and didn't think you could net the essence of the Bible down to much shorter of a story but Kevin DeYoung has done it with his new book "The Biggest Story ABC Board Book.

    This is a neat children's book that marches through the Bible, from Creation to Resurrection, with the guidance of the ABCs. There are colorful illustrations that help engage the young reader in the story of the Gospel. I would recommend this book to parents who desire to teach their young children about the Bible in a fun and exciting way. It would be an excellent addition to church libraries and Sunday school classrooms.

    Every once in a while, a book comes my way that impacts my entire family—you know the kind of book I mean.

Books like The Jesus Storybook Bible or Found.This sweet book is a board book, so I admit I wondered if it would be too baby for my 5yo and 3yo; however, we quickly discovered that the format aside, it’s actually perfect for preschoolers. Perfect! You see, my 3yo is on her way to preschool this fall and my 5yo is headed to kindergarten; my daughter is learning her letters, and my son is learning what sounds the letters make. An alphabet primer is just the thing. Each page introduces a letter of the alphabet, and then has one sentence telling a part of the gospel story with a key word using that page’s letter. For example, for the L page, the sentence is, "God gave them the Law, but they disobeyed." (The L in Law is underlined.) Plus, the illustrations are stunning and engaging.We’ve had the most fun with this book! First, my 3yo looks at the letter on the page and tells me what it is. Then we talk about what sound it makes. I read the sentence, and my 5yo tells me what word in that sentence begins with the page’s letter! But of course, the best part is that they are learning and relearning the gospel story in 26 simple sentences that are comprehensible to their little minds. The gospel is not dumbed down at all—just stripped down to clear language that children can appreciate. They ask to read this book every single day; I think by the end of the summer, they might have it memorized.I love this book so much, it has become my new go-to birthday and baby shower gift.
