  • Check these out on Amazon. You might find one you like. You could even get it used and get more than a couple. And its never too early to instill priciples and values that are important to you. Spiritual or not.

  • *snicker*

    ......none.

    Seriously, though, buy a Bible-themed story books. Three-year-olds can't read, and odds are, if you buy them a giant scary Bible, they aren't going to be reaching for that at story time, anyway. Get a Bible storybook and read it TO your toddler, if you insist on indoctrinating your children so early in life.

  • My 4 year old has an Adventure Bible (6-9 years old). He loves to be able to carry it around with him. I can read stories out of the Bible that use words he knows and soon enough he'll be able to read it and understand it.

  • My boys love our children picture bibles. They love the story of Noah with all the animals best. I would find a picture children bible. They even have some cute board style books you can buy. I get most of mine from Autom (http://www.autom.com/) on the Internet here. I have also found cute books at our Family Dollar store. They are nice and cheap so if the rip them I can afford to buy more. It is never to early to introduce God to your children. I read from the bible to my kids from birth.
