Jill Duggar's Husband Kicks Off Baby Israel's Religious Training (PHOTO)

Even though baby Israel is only two months old, mom Jill and Derick Dillard have already started him on some reading material that would make the Duggars proud. Can you guess what it is?


That's right, it's Bible time! How fitting is that? Thankfully it looks like a babified version of the Bible with pictures, since an actual Bible would probably bore a baby to death. Check out the sweet photo below:

While it may seem pointless to start "educating" babies on reading or religion. Yet in 2014, the American Academy of Pediatrics advised parents to start reading to their baby the day they're born.

The reason: Studies show that babies read to from birth are smarter and have a head start on language skills. In other words: More is sinking into those noggins than may appear at first glance.

Same goes with religion: While it may look like those Bible stories about Noah's Ark aren't impressing baby too much, you never know what they're picking up along the way -- probably more than you think.

Good for Jill and Derick for starting Baby Israel off on the right foot!
