|Book Of Mormon Violence And My Three Year Old|

I have been trying to read the Book of Mormon reader (short illustrated version) to my 3 year old. However, I have had to skip many pages as I do not want to read about wars and killing to him as he has no concept of death or violence or even weapons yet (besides snowballs which he discovered this weekend). So I have been limited to reading 3 Nephi 11, 4 Nephi, King Benjamin’s address and a few other chapters that are non-violent.
Given there are many who have trodden this path – any suggestions on how to give him the spirituality and experience without all the gore? When did your kids learn of guns, swords, violence, etc?
