Little Chick’s Bible
A Chick to Hug, a Bible to Love
by P.J. Lyons
Art by Melanie Mitchell
Little Chick’s Bible is a sturdy board book that is covered with a soft plush cover including an adorable baby chick on the front with a beak and wings that are loose (like the chick’s hands) and can be held in little fingers. Creation, Noah, Baby Moses, David and Goliath, the Birth of Christ, the Good Samaritan, Feeding the 5000, and the death and ascension of Jesus are the passages that are included in this Bible. The rhyming text is playful, fun, and bursting with kid-appeal. The art is sweet, precious, and comforting. What a great Bible to give as a gift for Easter or as a baby shower gift!
What I Like
As a writer myself, I especially like how much fun the words are in these stories. For example in God’s Friend Noah, one part says:
God said, “Noah, build a ship,
Pack a zoo, and take a trip.”
Kids just love language like that! What a great read-aloud Bible. Each story is short but complete with a meaningful message as well–perfect for little listeners. The Scripture reference is included underneath each title.
I also like how this is a companion to Little Bunny’s Bible. Some of the stories are the exact same in both, but some are different ones altogether. This makes it even more fun to give as gifts in Easter baskets…you can choose which child to give the yellow chick and which to give the fuzzy bunny.
And did I mention how the art is absolutely adorable!!!! Kids will want to hug this cuddly book and will feel a natural love for God’s Word.
