Before heading to the pet store on Saturday morning, I happened upon a recommendation for the Jesus Storybook Bible on the blog 4tunate. Since the Christian store is right across the street from the pet store I decided to go check it out. I've never been happy with the Little Eye's Bible we had for the girls so I was excited to see what this book would offer for bedtime stories. The book lived up to the recommendation and I purchased the last copy in the store.
When we got home on Saturday afternoon, Grace had requests for two different stories, Noah's Ark and Jesus' birth. I wasn't surprised by her request because she loves to recount the story of Noah every time it rains (like it has been all weekend). Whenever it rains we have to look for the rainbow and she reminds me that a rainbow is God's promise that he will never again flood the earth. Later in the weekend I saw Emma Jo reading the story of Jonah and the Big Fish to Grace and Cooper. I think this will be a great addition to our bedtime storybook collection.
