1. Use a version that speaks to your students. Change up the versions now and then. There are so many great Bibles out there now. Picture Bibles. Early Reader Bibles. Audio Bibles. Veggie Tales Bible. Study Bible for Kids. So many options! Use a version that speaks to young people. There are Teen Study Bibles, Adventure Bibles, other themed Bibles geared to students, The Message, and more.
2. Listen to the Bible being read: http://dailyaudiobiblekids.ning.com/ is a Bible reading social network for kids. A young girl reads the Bible daily and then prayer requests are shared. For older students and adults, the regular Daily Audio Bible is an option.

3. Engage your children while reading to them. I've heard about or come across several examples of wonderful activities that children can do to make the stories 'stick'.
My Bible Story Sketchbook is being released in November 2013 (Amazon.ca).
My Bible Story Sketchbook is the perfect place to sketch, doodle, and write! Including blank sketch/journal pages, doodle starters, and drawing prompts, these fun, two-color pages provide plenty of space to create. Covering familiar stories like David and Goliath, Moses parting the Red Sea, Deborah the judge, and Jesus feeding the 5,000, plus other more abstract ideas like love, forgiveness, and joy, My Bible Story Sketchbook will challenge you to turn your creative thoughts into actual artwork. It's an all-in-one, Bible-themed fun book that you'll love!
