The Bible tells one complete story about God, Jesus, and the Holy Spirit. It is, important to extend our reading to entire chapters so we "get" the big picture.

One way to interest our children in listening to and eventually reading the Bible themselves is to introduce different books in both the Old and New Testaments through solving puzzles. Word puzzles can be solved with help from older brothers or sisters or other family members. Discussions can then take place about words in the puzzles events or people and then the entire story can be read aloud from the Bible. This way we and our children become knowledgeable about the lessons in the stories and become closer to Jesus.

Colossians 3:16-17: "Let the message of Christ dwell among you richly as you teach and admonish one another with all wisdom through psalms, hymns, and songs from the Spirit, singing to God with gratitude in your hearts."
