I am a fairly new Christian and I wanted to get suggestions for a nice bible not just bible stories. I want something for a 4 and 5 year old. Something with pictures but that mimics a grown up bible but words that they would understand. Hope I am making sense here.

Thanks so much !!!!

hello!  i have a 4 yr old & a 2 yr old & these are the two we have for them right now

Beginner's Bible for Toddlers Author: Don Wise, Chris Wise  & Bible for Me: 12 Favorite Stories Author: Andy Holmes

now they only have bible stories in them, but it is a good start i think for an intro to the bible

but we also have a devotional book we do that she loves The One Year Devotions for Preschoolers 2 (Little Blessings) Author: Carla Barnhill

We have the Toddler Bible too, Linda...  but I had not seen that devotional book for preschoolers...  I think I may pick one of those up for Brady for his 2nd birthday in March...  he's getting a new toddler bed and a boy doll to transition into his new bed, and that would be PERFECT for bedtime reading!!!

Speaking as a children's Sunday School teacher, it is great to get the little ones started early.  Many of the children I have in my class will not bring their Bibles with them and I think that if it was started when they were younger that would not be a problem.  My own children were given a (real) Bible when they were born and had many Bible "storybooks" but they always knew the "storybook" did not replace the real thing. Also try and keep advancing with their age.  Those who do have their Bibles like to find the scripture along with me and they sometimes can't understand why it is not in their "Bible".
