With Christmas quickly approaching, it can be so hard to find gifts for kids that will have an impact and be used day after day, year after year. It’s difficult to find things that my kids choose to use, play or read for an extended period of time – just like all of us! One thing my kids love and use weekly, if not daily, is the Zonderkidz Beginner’s Bible.
The Beginner’s Bible is an illustrated Bible for little ones with over 90 of the most well-known and beloved stories of the Bible. As a parent, I want my kids to start hearing the stories from the Bible at a young age but knowing how to actually share Bible stories with them can be daunting. Where do you start? Will they understand them? How interesting is it? Will they want to hear more?
Zonderkidz has been a trusted brand by families for nearly 30 year and as huge variety of books and activities for kids. From prayer books to sticker books, board books to My First I Can Read books for beginner readers, you can be certain they know how to reach children.
When we got our Beginner’s Bible books, our kids could hardly wait to dive into them and beg me daily to read them stories. They’re quickly starting to remember names from the colorful photos and Roy has started telling his siblings the stories he’s heard me read to them.
In case you need a few additional ideas for gifts for your kids, grandkids or any little one in your life, here are 9 other Zonderkidz books that will bring joy and delight to any kid!
1. The Beginner’s Bible Gift Edition
This is the same as the Beginner’s Bible but it has a larger trim size, larger illustrations (that are beautiful!) and a gorgeous decorated cover that gleams with foil.
2. My First Book of Prayers
The Beginner’s Bible My First Book of Prayers is a great way to teach your kids to pray to God about anything! There are 16 prayers written with a kid in mind. There’s everything from character trait prayers like caring and forgiveness as well as prayers of praise, thanksgiving as well as requests.
This book is full of bright colored illustrations that even the youngest of kids will enjoy! This book has quickly become of favorite at our house since it’s easy to flip through to look at the photos even if there’s nobody reading it to the kids.
3. A Christmas Celebrations Sticker & Activity Book

5. First 100 Bible Words
I have an entire post on the First 100 Bible Words book! My kids are still pulling this book out and Penelope’s starting to learn more and more words through it. This is a great book for toddlers who are just learning words up to kids who are learning to read.
6. My First I Can Read – Queen Esther Saves Her People
Like the Noah book, the “My First I Can Read” books have basic language, word repetition and beautiful, bright colored illustrations that are perfect for reading together.
