One of My Favorite Bible Resources for Lapbooking

 Book of Bible Charts, Maps, and Time Lines. I totally agree with Dr. Ed Hindson who said, “If I could give only two books to a new Christian, one would be the Bible and the other would be this book.” Since it is reproducible it is perfect for Bible lapbooks.  If you are using Ancient History: Adam to Messiah this […]
