About the Book:
Keep enquiring young minds busy with these detailed depictions of Bible history, and a glimpse behind the scenes with flaps to lift on every page. Brief text explains the setting, and references events and stories from Jesus’ life. The book covers the first Christmas, illustrations of a synagogue and carpenter’s workshop in Nazareth, fishing in Capernaum, farming and shepherding in the hills of Galilee, homes of the wealthy and everyday people, the temple in Jerusalem, the way of the cross and the first Easter.

This is a very educational book that is not only pleasing to auditory learners but also to those who learning through touch and doing – with each flap the child lifts another new fascinating fact is learned. The vibrant colors and illustrations are pleasing to the eye and keep the reader’s attention. As far as I can tell everything is Biblically sound, although I must admit I had only been told there was only 1 angel in the Jesus’ empty tomb so I had to go look that up and sure enough there were two angels. The book is hard cover and looks beautiful on the shelf or in a book basket (I need a few book baskets!) and will put up with some rough and tumble wear from young children, although the flaps will not put up with a lot of rough housing, it will be a teaching moment to children in how to be gentle with their books.
Beginning at the birth of Christ, their home in Nazareth, Lake Galilee, all the way up to the Easter story of Christ’s Resurrection children will delight in learning more about their Savior and grow with Him as they age. There are 16 pages and the book measures 8.75 inches by 10.55 inches which makes it a manageable size for most children. I would think this would make a wonderful Christmas gift for a child or grandchild in your life or even a birthday or anytime present – if you want to make the Bible come alive and show a child a glimpse of Jesus’ life in their age appropriate way, this is a great way to do that.
