Book Description: Bible Stories Painting Book 1 and Bible Stories Painting Book 2 are two fantastic painting books are easy to use with no mess involved! Each book has sixteen scenes from the Old and New Testaments with a simple line of text explaining the picture. Simply dip your brush in water, wipe over the paint pallets on the inside covers and fill in the illustrations with bright, bold colors!
My Thoughts: I love these kinds of "workbooks" for young hands! Why?!? First of all, it's an all inclusive book. The paints are inside the front and back covers, the story is at the bottom the the pages and the child can easily paint the pictures.
Since there are four pages of paints, I cut one page of colors off and placed a paper towel under the paint so that the paint didn't come off on the table. By.the.way our table is covered in a plastic tablecloth so that the paint colors aren't painting the table too. The plastic makes it nice for any water spills, too.
This paint book has a sentence at the bottom of each page that tells about that picture . . . so it's not a story book or even telling a Bible story. It's a piece of the whole picture. But this makes a nice way to tell a story and then let the child paint the "important" part.
I love using these books in our Children's Church Department. I let each child have a book and since there are eight front and back pages I cut the paints out. Each child then paints two front pages, saving the next pages for later and saving the paints also makes for more painting later.
I have found that doing the above also works well with just one child too since young children tend to paint quickly. This way the book can easily lasts through four painting times.
This is a great book for babysitters and grandparents to have on hand or for a rainy day activity by bored little ones! Just add water!
