The Bible is a Library Bulletin Board

Our minister had mentioned in a sermon that one of his teachers said that "The Bible is a library." There are so many things to learn and it seems like we find something new every time we study it.
I have been wanting to do a bulletin board like this for a while, so I bought the graphics... and then I couldn't use them for this. There are stacks of books in the graphics, but not one of them had the number of books in the stack that I needed! I couldn't even put any together to make what I needed! So, I made my own. ☺
I lined up the Old Testament books along the bottom of my bulletin board, since I wanted them to kinda look like they are on a shelf together. I kept everything simple, without any extra picture graphics so they can be used for any age group.
 
I put the New Testament books in order down the side, with the letters in each division listed on scrolls. I think this will help with the kids being able to understand how we divide the Bible.

Also, I like to have bulletin boards with the kids names, so I asked each student who their favorite Bible person is and why. I said "When I say Bible, who do you think of and what did they do?" You can print this questionnaire here.

I printed the students names on their shirts and the book from their favorite person, but since I have to lock in the graphics, I just put Holy Bible on the kids graphics. You can let them add stickers to the Bible, or draw a picture, and you can add their name on their shirts if you decide to. You can purchase the kids reading books graphics at http://www.scrappindoodles.com/ if you want to be able to add custom lettering to yours. Click here to print the kids reading books graphics.

Click here to print the books & letters, the titles, and the scripture.
This last download has the Old & New Testament and the arrows. I put the arrows on their own sheet so you can print them on any color cardstock you want to march your board. You can print them here.
