It might be a good idea to speak out loud the different books so that the children can all get used to hearing how the book names sound. Perhaps the whole group could speak out the bible books together. The key is repetition – especially with younger children. The more they hear the book names, the more familiar they will become with them.
Why is it important to learn the books of the bible?
Let’s get this straight, it’s not the be all and end all. However, the more familiar children are with the bible and the bible book names, the easier they will find it to navigate their way through the bible now and in later life.
