Making time for God has become a priority in our home lately. The kids have been doing P.A.C.E.S. workbooks since we left Connections Academy. As a result, they are more interested in reading more of God’s word. I have been getting each of us new Bibles to help with making our devotional time more engaging. Delbert has been enjoying the Faith Builders Bible from Zonderkidz as part of our family devotions.
About the Faith Builders Bible
The Faith Builders Bible uses the fact that kids (and some adults) are fans of the brick building toys. It is filled with inspirational devotions wrapped around the brick building concept. This Bible is ideal for kids ages 6-maybe even 12. Throughout the book, it uses your kids love of bricks as a means to help them learn the Bible better.
We were all impressed with this Bible for Delbert. Jimmy was a bit upset that it wasn’t for him since he’s also a brick building fan. Delbert likes the fact that it’s easy to read and the devotionals in it keep him engaged. As I mentioned in the video, my favorite part has to be the fact that it lists off the stories of the Bible and where to find them. The fact that this is a Bible designed for kids, I like the fact that the text seems more simple to read. Kids love images and this Bible has a good many of them.
The fact that this is a Bible designed for kids, I like the fact that the text seems more simple to read. It’s written at a 3rd-grade reading level. Kids love images and this Bible has a good many of them. It is missing pictures of the maps, but personally, to me, that is a GOOD thing because my kids tend to spend more time looking at the maps instead of reading text like they should.
The devotionals in this Bible also prompt the kids to use their bricks to recreate the messages that are trying to be taught. That makes my life as a mother a lot easier because it not only provides the discussion prompts, but also an activity to SHOW the kids the actual message. It’s nice to be able to use the devotionals to help them memorize their Building Block Verse. They like to create their own storyline to go with the verses. These kid-friendly verses are easier to remember due to their wording.
Overall, I would state that this Bible is a great beginner Bible for the middle aged kids. I wouldn’t say it’s ideal for kids who aren’t reading at least at a 3rd-grade level. However, kids who adore bricks and can read at that level they will treasure this Bible.
