Beginning Bible Readers at Home
Do you want to encourage your child to read Bible stories for himself?
- Visit your local library or Christian bookstore.
- Help your child select some Bible storybooks at his reading level.
- Give your child the opportunity to read them to you again and again. (Kids learn from repetition.)
- Suggest that your child read one of the stories aloud for bedtime devotional.
- Have a Bible story play. Act out the story using simple props found around the house.
Kid Ministry Idea
How can VBS and Sunday School teachers encourage the new Bible reader?
- Establish an easy reader check out system. Allow kids to borrow one or two books to read at home.
- Create a Bible readers club. Fashion it after the summer reading club at the local library. Reward kids for beginning Bible stories they have read.
- Have guest readers. Encourage one child to read the focus Bible story for the other kids
