An excellent centre piece for a faith programme for preschool children - nice large book to sit around, excellent versions of bible stories, interesting accompanying pictures and really good craft activities and songs.

F A B U L O U S 3 Aug. 2000
By "a_mom" - Published on Amazon.com
I can't remember being this excited about a book in a long, long time. This is an incredible book. It is well suited to bedtime stories, family devotions, Sunday School, or homeschool. I use it for all of the above!
The illustrations are very well done. They are perfectly detailed to hold young childrens' interest, yet not too busy. The format of the book is large, so it is easily used for a group. Each story is approximately eight pages long and has its own style of drawing and font. The stories are told in child-friendly language, but unlike some childrens' Bible storybooks, they do not compromise the actual Biblical story.
Following each story are three pages of activities: prayers, songs (sung to the tune of familar childrens' songs), rhymes, crafts, snacks, games, finger plays, service projects, etc. The ideas are fresh and use inexpensive materials usually found around the house. For homeschoolers, the activities provide a variety of ways to incorporate other subjects into the lesson. The possibilities are exciting.
I can't imagine a more perfect book for teaching young children about God's Word. This is a great book.

Excellent BIBLE for children and their families to share!!! 7 Oct. 1999
By Kristi Stephenson - Published on Amazon.com
This is an exciting book for children and their families to read TOGETHER!!! Pray and Play brings the BIBLE characters to the present and has kids loving to read the Bible and wanting more!!! I love how there are songs written to go with specific stories to familiar tunes and other activities as well. This is an asset to any preschool, Sunday School Class, or home!!! We have spent countless times reading to our little one from this book and they always ask for it again!!!

We LOVE This Book!! 11 Oct. 2005
By CC - Published on Amazon.com
My daughter, age 2 1/2, loves this book so much she asks for "stories and crafts" every day. I love the fact that the this book has a simple craft ideas, snack ideas, memorable songs & finger plays that accompany and are tied to every illustrated bible story in the book. This makes it easy for me do a simple family devotional with my daughter since everything I need, (except the craft and snack materials) is all in one book. And the stories, action ryhmes and songs are innovative and fun. They are so memorable my daughter has spontanously started repeating them hours after our bible time has ended, and when we sit down to do one story and she often asks for me to repeat the previously told stories as well. I orginally purchased this book when my daughter was experiencing seperation anxiety and didn't want to go to children's church so I could do something with her at home, on Sundays, but now we do devotionals from this book almost every day, we love it so much. I would recommend this book to almost anyone who wants to introduce there little one to God. Group Publishing makes a "Pray & Play Bible 2" I just ordered it since we loved the orginial "Pray & Play Bible" so much. I envision using both for years to come, and when my daughter outgrows it I will keep it to with my future Grandchildren.

Absolutely WONDERFUL! 4 May 2012
By LisaLou - Published on Amazon.com
I am the child care director at a Christian Day Care. My original plan was to pick one story in the Pray and Play Bible per month and develop a theme around that Bible Story. My goal was to read the story once a week and do a related craft. However, the children BEG me to read the chosen story of the month over and over. They want to hear the stories more than once a week. At the end of each story, they remind me to "do the song". They absolutely LOVE the songs and fingerplays after each story. The crafts are great too. However, I do find that I do a lot of research online to find crafts to supplement what is in the book. I HIGHLY recommend this book. I will be purchasing the Pray & Play Bible 2 to use for next school year. I hope it is as great as the first edition. :)

We are excited about this purchase! 11 Sept. 2007
By Froggy Mom - Published on Amazon.com
Our Play and Pray Bible arrived today, and we are already enjoying it very much! The large size of the book is appealing, as are the brightly colored illustrations. There are activities to extend each Bible story, and we have been singing lots of the songs tonight. (These are sung to familiar children's tunes, and they caught my daughter's attention right away.) I also teach 4-year-olds in a Christian preschool, and I teach 3's and 4's in Sunday School - I'm looking forward to using this book in those settings, as well as at home!
