This summer is set to go down in the history books as record breaking. What with temperatures soaring up to 35 degrees (whew!), and England’s fantastic performance in the World Cup which saw them get further than any team has since 1990 (sorry, it had to be mentioned!).
And now the 6 weeks of the school summer holidays stretch out in front of children and parents. Or perhaps you’ve not quite got that long off, but you have got a week or two to be spent on a beach somewhere abroad, or splashing in a pool, or like a lot of us, traipsing round a field praying that the stunning weather holds out long enough to get the tent up.
You’ve got your suncream, maybe a pair of wellies for festivals or a pair of flip flops for the beach. You might have even splashed out on some new luggage or an inflatable pineapple pool float, but what about the other summer essentials?
If luggage space is tight but you still want to take a Bible away with you, we’ve got a selection of compact Bibles which can be slipped into a pocket or backpack, ready to head off on your travels. The NIV Tiny Bible is exactly that, tiny! Still featuring an abundance of additional features this miniature Bible can squeeze into a pocket, purse or even a lunchbox! So you’ve still got room in your suitcase to bring home tacky souvenirs for your friends and family!
Looking for some poolside entertainment? Or something to do whilst you luxuriate in the comfort of your suntrap garden. Make sure those brain muscles aren’t taking a summer break too with a range of Bible puzzle books (yes, they’re really a thing) from Sudoku to Crosswords, these books will challenge not just your knowledge of literacy or numeracy but also your Bible knowhow! Or turn your hand to some colouring books, with these stunning scripture art books.
Summer is a great time to pick up a new skill, so why not give today’s hottest trend a go: Bible verse mapping. These new Bibles feature a definitive guide to help you delve deeper into scripture.
Let’s not forget the kids, who somehow seem to utter the ‘bored’ word within 5-minutes of finishing school. Keep them entertained come rain or shine with scratch and sniff books, colouring pages, Biblical fiction and craft activities. They summer holidays will just whizz by!
However you’re spending your summer, we hope you have a wonderful time.
