I just discovered a long-forgotten book that I had planned to read with my children, called 365 Read-Aloud Bedtime Bible Stories. I can’t wait to get started! There is one-short story for each day, and one page for each day of the year! Sort of like a devotional but in story-form for kids!

Children love Bible stories, especially when they are written in age-appropriate, easy-to-understand language. 365 Read-Aloud Bedtime Bible Stories, written specifically for ages 3 to 8, has a year’s supply of the best-loved Bible stories that will delight your children. All the excitement, adventure, history, and spiritual truths of the Bible are skillfully presented. At the end of each story you’ll even find questions to help stimulate discussion, and to help precious young minds understand God’s Word. Now your can make the most of bedtime with 365 Read-Aloud Bedtime Bible Stories!
I also love the black & white illustrations — there are over 100 of them, which bring the stories to life in a creative way!
I plan to read this with each of my kids!
Here is a sample from page one:
God Creates the Earth
The earth is very old. No one knows when it was made. But God has always been alive. He created the heavens and the earth. The earth was empty and very dark and covered with water. Nothing lived on the earth.
God said, “Let there be light,” and there was light. God saw that the light was good. He called the light Day and the darkness Night. The was the first day. One the second day, God spoke and made the sky.
Next God said, “I want the dry land to come out of the water.” So it did. God named the land Earth and the waters Sea. God saw that this was good. Then God said, “Let all the green plants grow out of the earth.” All this happened on the third day, and it was good.
Then on the fourth day, God spoke again. He said, “Let the sun and moon and stars come into the sky.” So this happened. God put them in the sky to give light to the earth. The sun shines in the day. The moon and stars shine at night. God saw that this was good, too.
This ends Day One and Day Two picks up the rest of the Creation Story.
I love this book, because in a simple, beautiful way that adults can appreciate and children can understand, 365 Read-Aloud Bedtime Bible Stories takes you through Genesis to the Book of Revelation (although it understandably skips from Acts to Revelations, since everything in between are epistles, mostly from Paul).
