Book Description: Keep curious young minds busy with these detailed depictions of Bible history, and a glimpse behind the scenes with flaps to lift on every page
Jesus took his message to all kinds of people in all kinds of places—from the shores of Lake Galilee to the bustling streets of Jerusalem. This book takes readers right into the world that he knew, with appealing illustrations and flaps that open to reveal all kinds of fascinating details. 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.
My Thoughts: When I was a child I loved the "hidden" pictures that were in a flap book.
So, when I saw this book...I grabbed it for our Nursery class. I realize that the flaps may not stay intact for a long but it looks as if these flaps will last for a few years. I love the hard back exterior of the book because it looks, as if, it will hold up nicely for many readings.
The children not only loved the "stories", actually it's more of a brief explanation of the picture but the teacher can expound and tell the story that goes along with the flap but they loved lifting the flaps and seeing the neat pictures that go along with the story. A nice interactive book.
There are quite a few different biblical "stories" in these wonderful book...all about the life of Jesus.
Children of all ages may enjoy this book but the ideal ages for this book is probably around five years old and maybe as old as eight years old.
This book makes a great gift too.
