My First Message: A Devotional Bible for Kidsby Eugene H. Peterson (Translator)
Parents want their children to discover the value of God’s Word. My First Message is a one-of-a-kind Bible that transforms family devotions into interactive experiences. The great Message style offers a version of the Bible that is easy to read and understand. Children ages 4-8 are encouraged to learn to study the Bible through a “read, think, pray, and live” approach. Filled with lively illustrations and fun activities for parents and children, My First Message keeps in mind the short attention span of its readers and moves the stories along at a good pace.

I love it
My sons really love this book. Although the only problem that I have is some stories aren't included but I use other Bibles to supplement the teachings. My twins are 6 years old and I use this as a teaching tool and just fun daily reading.
