  • Flaps make the stories especially vivid
  • The perfect gift for a baptism

The large baptismal Bible includes the 12 most important stories from the Old and New Testaments. In age-appropriate texts, stories such as the Creation, Noah's Ark, the Christmas story and the birth of Jesus are told. The stories are accompanied by beautiful, realistically illustrated scenes and two to three flaps per double page. This allows parents to actively involve their children in shared reading.
