When I agreed to review Little Words Matter Bible Storybook, I was hoping that it wasn’t just another little kids Bible Story book. Like all the rest.
It certainly isn’t! I LOVE this book. So little, so sweet. Just a simple board book. Easy for little hands to hold and read.
The stories in the book, aren’t just the simple verses of the popular stories in the Bible. The author Tama Fortner, gives this little book a personality and separates it from the other Bible Storytime books. The illustrations by Holli Conger add so much to these beautiful little stories
Each story -there are 19 of them, start out with simple word statements. Fortner goes on to tell us the story in easy, small kids words.
Most children that read this can remember those sentences. 19 stories from the Bible. Isn’t that what we, as parents, grandparents and/or teachers or ministry leaders want? Words that not only teach these children, beautiful stories from God’s Word, but anything that will help them to remember them.
We will take the story of Jesus on the Cross.
from Luke 23, John 19:17-42
Jesus was arrested! He was laughed at, spit on, and beaten. Then He was put on the cross. But even on the cross, Jesus loved everyone
“Father, forgive them,” He said, Jesus dies and was placed in a tomb. A giant stone covered it
Jesus died to take away the sins of the world
What a great way to sum up the story of Jesus on the cross, just so the littles can understand! I LOVE this book and am so grateful to have reviewed it to be introduced to the series, With Christmas coming, and a lot of littles in my family, this will make the perfect gift to put in their stocking or under the tree!
you can find this book and many others at Family Christian Stores. Check out all the great things you can get for Christmas presents for your kiddoes.
About the Author Tama Fortner
My name is Tama. I love God, my family and friends, and coffee with extra cream. I live a crazy life that is all-at-once wonderful, messy, and filled with love.
In the midst of the craziness of carpools and crockpots, I am also a Bible teacher and a freelance writer and editor. My most recent book, God Is Always Good, was published this fall. I’ve collaborated on a number of titles, including the bestselling Jesus Calling for Kids and Grace for the Moment for Kids. My home is in the hilly suburbs of Tennessee, with my husband, two kids, a dog, and a cat aptly named Trouble.
My prayer is that all I do, all I say, all I write and teach will bring glory to Him, because . . .
He brought me out into a spacious place;
He rescued me because He delighted in me.

About The Illustrator Holli Conger
Holli’s artistic talent and creativity has been evident from a very early age. Although she excelled in many areas of school, art projects were always her favorite. In third grade, Holli’s art teacher presented her with a big green pencil case (which she still has today) for having the best drawing in the class.
Today she is a digital and dimensional illustrator who illustrates in a whimsical style suitable for any application of illustration. From magazine, greeting cards and advertising, to CD covers, packaging and children’s books, Holli approaches each project with whimsy and creativity guaranteed to put a smile on any child’s (and parent’s) face.
With a Bachelor’s Degree in Graphic Design and Advertising, Holli has the knowledge and experience of working with
art directors, designers, copywriters and other creative types to collaborate on projects. A Nashville native, she currently lives in Winston-Salem, NC, where her husband, their daughter and son give her plenty of inspiration.
