SUNDAY SCRIPTS: LDS Books for Children - My First Book of Mormon Stories

My First Book of Mormon Stories by Deana Draper Buck and Jerry Harston (Sep 2001)

I bought this book when it first came our for my own son, who was only about 3 at the time.  It's a big chunky board book and he sat still for a few minutes at a time to hear a quick story and see the pictures.  He was a super wiggly guy.  He was adopted and his mom is from Mexico, his dad is, (as he put it), French Creole. So our Samuel is dark skinned.  :)  We teased him that he was made of chocolate and he loved it.  So our Samuel especially loved the story of Samuel, the Lamanite and spent years with a sword or two of some kind in his hand pretending to be "Samuel".  Later, when we read about the Anit-Nephi-Lehi's, we found him burying his swords under a mound of couch cushions.  Ha Ha!

The stories scan only a couple of pages and so they are short enough to hold a small 2-4 year old child's attention.  This is a great alternative for toddlers and preschoolers.

This book is available at Deseret Book, Seagull Book, Amazon and wherever LDS books are sold.
