If your child loves hero stories, there’s no better place to find them than the Bible! In these pages, read how God empowered led Ruth to care for Naomi and for Boaz to care for Ruth!

Then read the rest of the stories in the Little Bible Heroes™ series. Each book offers a story of bravery, faithfulness, or kindness—straight from the Bible and perfect for little hero-loving hearts!

The Little Bible Heroes series has been a favorite in our house for quite some time. So much a favorite that the corners are dog-eared, the covers are ripped—and I’ll be honest, a page or two might have been eaten. (Such is life with children…)

It’s almost as if B&H Kids knew my internal monologue, because they’ve begin releasing these same stories—originally available as a 2-in-1 flip over book—as single board books. Same illustrations. Same stories. A bit more durable. Which is great for me, because my I’ll-do-it-myself toddler loves to turn pages and is very excited to do so.

Little Bible Heroes: Ruth is a retelling of Ruth’s story. Seven panels—fourteen pages total—tell the story of her coming home to Israel with Naomi, how she cares for Naomi, and how Boaz sees her hard work and decides to marry her.

It’s so wonderful that this series includes one of the best-known women in Scripture. Little girls need to see themselves reflected in the pages of the Bible and Ruth’s story of fearless sacrifice is very important.

It may seem a little silly, but there was no cute animal on every panel like in other books in this series—and my little one noticed! One panel has a couple of birds on a window sill and he was noticeably confused when they didn’t appear again.

Like other books in the series, the very first page has a Parent Connection section that includes a Bible verse, a couple discussion questions, and one quick thought to remember. These are more than just stories to read. These are timeless truths of Scripture told in a way that even the youngest readers and pre-readers can understand.

As always, the Little Bible Heroes stories do well at lending themselves to interaction in the storyline. Ask, ask, ask questions. Don’t just read the words, get your child to interact with them and seek out their thoughts and have a conversation with them. It is so important to cultivate faith at a young age and the Little Bible Heroes series is perfect for doing just that.
