The Play-Along Bible: Imagining God's Story through Motion and Play
by Bob Hartman (Author), Susie Poole (Illustrator)
Looking for a way to integrate the Bible into your child’s playtime?
The Play-Along Bible inspires children’s imaginations while growing their understanding of and love for God’s Word. Through simple hand motions, facial expressions, verbal exclamations, and funny noises, kids can participate and respond to God’s amazing story. Whether it’s acting out the dawn of creation by making a funny fish face or belting out a giant roar while pretending to be a ferocious beast in Daniel’s lions’ den, kids will encounter hundreds of fun ways to actively engage with the Bible. Using this fresh and easy, multisensory approach, you’ll be surprised how well your child will recall and absorb the Scriptures. Adding to the experience are delightful full-color illustrations from British artist Susie Poole.

The Play-Along Bible by Bob Hartman is adorably cute! I love that the The Play-Along Bible gets kids involved while learning about stories and scriptures from the Bible! My kids absolutely loved this book. We read it in the afternoons and they love letting loose and using hand motions, facial expressions, verbal exclamations, and funny noises while reading this book. They have a blast and I'm completely amazed at how quickly they've been able to learn the stories. I absolutely love the multisensory approach this book takes and I know my kiddos do too!
