My Bible: God’s Word for Me
My Bible: God’s Word for Me introduces primary-age children (ages 5 to 8) to God’s Word. Pairing exquisitely illustrated stories with traditional Catholic prayers, this Bible will educate young readers and plant the seeds of personal devotion. Filled with foundational stories drawn from both the Old and New Testament, My Bible is both engaging and comprehensive. From Noah and the Flood to the Road to Emmaus, vivid illustrations breathe new life into familiar narratives.
Taken on their own, these stories are critical for the formation of any young Catholic. However, My Bible goes beyond pictures and storytelling to engage young readers, including essential Catholic prayers like the Creed, Our Father, Hail Mary, and the Rosary to accompany these Bible stories. These prayers link the past with the present, reminding children that the God from the sacred stories they read is the same God that loves them. By encouraging children to learn and recite prayers in addition to reading, My Bible teaches children (and reminds parents!) of an invaluable lesson: we are created to know, love, and serve God. The stories and images help children grow in knowledge of God, but the prayers translate that knowledge into love and service.
These illustrated stories, combined with basic prayers, emphasize a distinctly Catholic understanding of the Bible that places scripture and tradition side-by-side. Learning basic Biblical stories is a necessary part of any child’s formation, and My Bible: God’s Word For Me teaches children that prayer and scripture go together naturally. For any parent or educator looking to teach children the basic prayers and mysteries of the Faith, My Bible: God’s Word For Me is a trustworthy and exceptional introduction.
