The Bible is a big book, isn’t it? It’s actually more of a library of books. 66 books of the Bible make up the library. Have you ever taught your kids about the books of the Bible?
Help your kids navigate the library that consists of the books of the Bible!
When your children read the Bible, it’s important that they understand the genre of each book they’re reading and who authored it. They need to know how the Bible is divided and categorized. Not only do they need to be able to navigate through the books of the Bible, your kids will benefit from understanding the major themes of each book of the Bible as well.
Now, if you’re using Bible Road Trip™ in your home, your children will learn these things over time. It’s really nice to study everything about the books of the Bible in a unit study style as well. I’ve got you covered!

The All About the Books of the Bible Lapbook is an in-depth study your kids will never forget! Take a look!
All About the Books of the Bible for Kids
The All About the Books of the Bible Lapbook is a fun, hands-on study of the Bible for your child from the ages of 5-12. You and your child will study several aspects of the structure of the Bible:
- Vocabulary Definitions of Bible Genres and Categories
- The Genres of the Old and New Testaments
- The Books of the Bible in Order
- Author, Date Written, Genre, and Theme of Each Book of the Bible
It is important that our kids know the books of the Bible so that they can find their way around the “library” of the Bible, but it’s also important that they learn about each book of the Bible. These facts will help your child read the Bible with a greater level of comfort, knowledge, and understanding.

How to Print and Use the Books of the Bible Lapbook
To create the base of your lapbook, place your file folder on a table and fold both sides inward toward the creased spine of the folder. Once the outer edges meet, crease your file folder. This will give you a book that opens in the middle. You will still have a fold in the middle of your book, so I like to glue a piece of cardstock into the middle section of the book to create a thick center that won’t bend.
You can watch a quick tutorial for the Books of the Bible lapbook above.
