Susan Hunt’s ABC Bible Verses: Hiding God’s Word in Little Hearts is a terrific Bible memory tool for 4’s and 5’s (and even older). These stories are longer than the ones in Kenneth Taylor’s Scripture memory books, and the questions at the end are a little more complex. The verses are organized alphabetically by first letter of the verse. If you’re familiar with Steve Green’s Hide ’em In Your Heart CD’s, you will recognize some of these verses. But there are plenty of new ones, and the stories help flesh out the verses nicely. Some of the stories are a little warm and fuzzy, but overall, this has been a great tool to help us learn Scripture with our children. We’ve read and discussed (and memorized) one verse a week.

The verses are in the New King James version, so I rewrote these in our preferred version/translation (ESV); thankfully, most of the beginning letters were the same!
