There are plenty of good books to read to your child. Here are a few;The giving tree by Shel Silverstein, Guess how much I love you and You are all my favorites by Sam McBratney, Because I love you and You are special by Max Lucado. Enjoy let me know how it goes. GB

We had "My Goodnight Bible" that has 45 Bible stories from the OT and NT along with questions, a prayer, and a quiet time thought for the night. I got this for my son when he was 2 and we wore it out so much that I had to buy a new one when my daughter turned 2. They are now 5 and 7 1/2 so we have moved up to a different bible story book but this one was great because you could read the short story and do whatever of the other "activities" you felt were age appropriate.

There is a whole series of bible stories called "Arch Books" that are really good bible stories for kids. You can find these at Christian book stores like "Family Christian Store." They stay very true to the bible passages that the stories are taken from and they are usually written in a way that they have rhythmn when you read them. Here's an example:
Come, my dear children, gather around,
I'll tell you a story that's true--
Of how God our Father sent His Son,
In love, as a Savior for you.
There are some "my first bible" that are nice, but I think these do a better job of telling each story and there are lots of pictures to go along with it. On the book it says the reading level is Grade 3 and the Interest level is Ages 5-9, but I have been reading these to my three-year-old since she was a baby and she very much enjoys them.

We just recently got a book called "The Lamb" by John R.Cross. It came HIGHLY recommended by 2 families in my church and so far it is AWESOME! It goes a step further than most toddler books as far as teaching about God. It is good for pretty much any age, you just have to spend time talking with them about it on their level. I wasn't able to find it in stores, but found several of them on Amazon.com and also on Christianbook.com WELL worth whatever you end up paying :)

There are so many childrens bibles, bible story books, bible base stories. Then there are things like veggie tales. God rocks and such, that teach biblical values and principles in a fun, exciting way that toddlers and kids can understand. Veggie tale and God rocks have both movies, books and teaching resources. Check out your local christian book store, or christian book distributors online.
My 4 yr old had a "My Very First Golden Bible" when he was 2. He learned to love it and own it. It's still a special one to him. Now his younger brother is 2 and we often start and end the day with Bible stories. The interesting thing is if I start a story around the last supper time, he wants me to read all the way to the end. He doesn't like to leave Jesus with any part of that story undone ?! I make a point to explain that the Bible stories are true and some of the other stories we read are not true. (But I still read them all sorts of other stories).
