|This is, by far, my favorite scripture book to read to my 2 year old right now.|
|Here's a look at the inside of one of the board books you can see in the front of our scripture basket. I discovered these right after my youngest was born. They are board books and I love the italicized action instruction. Plus, they are short and simple stories. This is still greatly enjoyed by my 2 year old and now he is able to actually do all of the actions himself.|
|I have this set of Book of Mormon readers. I bought the curriculum that these books belong to a couple of years ago. I didn't enjoy the curriculum but I love these books. They are like Bob Books but for the scriptures (see pic of inside below). They increase in difficulty. This is the first one. The beginning books are just right for my 5 year old to read all by himself during personal scripture study time.|
|Here's a look at a few of the other books in the basket. I have multiple books from each of these sets.|
|Here's a look inside the scripture readers. Again, this is the first in the series. They increase in difficulty.|
|The front of each sheet has a beautiful picture on it. I face the picture toward the children and have them focus on it while I read the back (see below).|
|This is my latest discovery. It contains the actual text from the Book of Mormon and each excerpt is accompanied by a Lego depiction. (I heard that this book was put out by a family in order to help pay for the boys' missions. I don't know if this is true but either way it is a really good book.) This has been perfect for my almost 8 year old to read and my 5 year old loves to sit and look at the pictures!|
I doodle in my scriptures and he was inspired by this (he LOVES to draw).
|Here's a look at one his pages.|
|This is a book I ordered the PDF for on Etsy. I have volume 1 and 2.|
|This is a felt story for Jonah and the Whale but I have felt stories for quite a few scripture stories (Noah's Ark, etc.) I either make them or buy them.|
|I purchased this game for $1 from The Dollar Tree. It's fun to use to tell the story but also to work on vocabulary development (animal names) and counting/numbers.|
|I also have magnet stories for quite a few scripture stories. Noah's Ark, Nephi and the Brass Plates, and The Jaradites to name a few. I also either buy or make these.|
To summarize, when studying scriptures with children I like to try and make scripture study fun, engaging, and switch things up. That is why I have so many variations of similar topics.
I have a lot more but this post is already crazy long!
Hope this was helpful!
