Begin with the basics especially with younger children and those that may not have any church background and new to the Bible itself.  Make sure to clarify the accuracy and validity of the Bible; it is NOT just another storybook!

There are many children's Bibles now available for any age child and written in language so that kids are able to both read and understand God's Word.  Check these out at Christianbook.com -

One of my favorites that was released in the past few years is

708257: The Jesus Storybook Bible: Every Story Whispers His Name The Jesus Storybook Bible: Every Story Whispers His Name
By Sally Lloyd-Jones

It presents the Bible as one story...the story of Jesus; it proclaims, "Every story whispers His name."  Zondervan also offers a complete Children's Bible curriculum based upon this little Bible storybook. 

No matter which Bible you may use, the following lessons &ideas will help you draw out truths that are applicable to life and growing closer to God.
