_______________________________

Easter is always the perfect time to give a
special, age-appropriate bible to your child.
This can be a fun, illustrated "devotional bible"
for a preschooler or a bible made especially for
early readers. There are many bibles that are
girlie, have pictures and themes that attract
boys or girls, and have lessons & experiments
to live out for school-age children & teenagers.

In Madison check out Family Christian Stores
near the Princeton Club by East Towne Mall,
or Barnes & Noble locations.
