    Great Gift or first Bible storybook

    I don't know about you, but I'm in the season of baby showers. So many young families around us are having babies. And I'm always looking for a great gift that has meaning. My Pop-Up Bible Stories is a great example of that type of book.

    My 4 year-old and 20 month-old have thoroughly enjoyed this book. The pictures are intriguing to children with warm colors. It covers tried and true favorite stories from Moses to Daniel and the Lion's Den to Jesus raising the little girl from the dead. My 4 year-old can read it without me worrying about her breaking the book. I want to watch my youngest with it.

    This is the kind of book that can become a favorite storybook, one children return to over and over. At the same time, it can help parents and others introduce children to key stories in the Bible. More detail would have been nice in the book, but when you keep in mind that this is only a starting point and to remember you'll have to go to the Bible for the full story.

    What a wonderful way to introduce your youngsters to the word of

    What a wonderful way to introduce your youngsters to the word of the
    Bible. Beautifully done illustrations, and bright colors and the pop up
    feature will make this your youngsters favorite book. There are five
    popular Bible stories in this book. Each story spans two pages and
    consists of about a paragraph along with an eye catching pop up. The
    stories included are: Jesus Calms The Storm, Daniel and the Lion's Den,
    Moses, The Shepherd and the Lost Sheep, and a little girl being brought
    back to life by Jesus. The thing that really stands out for me was the
    fact that the author also includes the scripture verse at the end of
    each story which steers you to the particular story in the Bible.
    Overall a very sturdy book that would make a wonderful gift for your
    little one, a great addition to your child's library.

    I received a copy of MY POP-UP BIBLE STORIES by Juliet David, il

    I received a copy of MY POP-UP BIBLE STORIES by Juliet David, illustrated by Daniel Haworth from Candle Books through Kregel Publications. In case you can’t tell from the title, it’s a pop-up book – of Bible stories! I’d never seen one like it before, and I by the time I finished reading it, I had mixed feelings. Originally, I was thrilled. Children and adults love pop-up books. They bring the stories to life in a 3-D sense that a mere picture book can’t do. When I was subbing and doing my student teaching in local elementary schools, children loved the pop-up books best. The school library even had a few that were always out. Since they delight children so much, it’s a great idea to make one about the Bible.

    Sadly, I wasn’t as thrilled when I finished reading it. Each page was a different Bible story, such as Daniel in the Lion’s Den. While I loved all of the stories, integral to understanding the Christian faith, the single page that included only a few paragraphs didn’t do the story justice. It felt rushed and incomplete, leaving me with more questions than answers. A parent or teacher reading this to a child could then go to the Bible and continue the lesson, but since the stories are so sparse, they don’t capture the imagination or hold interest.

    On a more positive note, the pictures are eye-catching and child-friendly. As a supplement to a lesson, this would be a great resource. Despite my misgivings, I did enjoy the book, and recommend it to teachers and parents.

    Beautiful Children's Bible Stories

    As soon as this book came in the mail I was required to read it to my boys. Since then they request it very often.
    The first pop-up is the story of How Moses became the Prince of Egypt...this one has a beautiful pop-up of the baby going down the Nile in a basket. We then went to our bible with the reference [using a children's Bible] of Exodus 2:1-10.
    Next is the reference of how God rescues David from the Lions. The kids loved this...especially peeking at the guy looking in! Referencing the Bible again we read Daniel 6:1-24.
    Then we have the story of Jesus bringing a girl back to life...so very sweet and we read Luke 8:40-41 49-56.
    The Boys loved the next one and the pictures of How the Shepherd found his lost sheep, and we read Luke 15:1-7.
    The last one was one of their favorites...How Jesus stopped the storm! We read Luke 8:22-25.
    What a great and enjoyable way to share the bible with little ones. The pop-up enhanced the reading so very much.


    I received this book from the Publisher Lion Hudson, and was not required to give a positive review.

    Delightful book for kiddies with moveable pop-up pictures

    "My Pop-Up Bible Stories" by Juliet David & Illustrated by Daniel Haworth
    ISBN:978-1-859-85237-8
    Hardcover
    By now, most of my readers realize that I really love to get my hands on good children's books. We as adults have a tremendous responsibility to implant in their innocent minds God's truth and a love for His Word and His world. We are also responsible to be sure that they learn about good things, beautiful things, lovely things and are taught gentleness, kindness, and generosity.

    Well, My Pop-Up Bible Stories certainly won't do all of these things because it takes more than one piece to complete the puzzle of learning. But this is a beautiful piece; and it will certainly be considered a border piece because in its lovely, gentle way, it presents part of the binding that is the stuff of life. It presents Bible stories to the young age 3 to 5 child in a way they can understand and in an ingenious method - pop-up pictures - that will captivate them.

    Five stories from the Old and New Testaments include: Daniel, Baby Moses, Lost Sheep, Jairus's Daughter, and Stilling the Storm. Baby Moses gently floats, Jairus's daughter is raised, and Jesus stills the storm. Pop-up paper art created by Linda Birkinshaw brings to life the illustrations by Daniel Haworth. The stories beautifully told by Juliet David mesh wonderfully with the art. Children will be enthralled by this book and you and your child will surely cherish it. Their little hands will clutch it tightly to their heart because they love it. And you will be thankful it is in your home for them to learn from and to grasp a beginning knowledge of God's Word.

    DISCLOSURE: I was provided a complimentary copy for the purpose of rendering my honest review by Kregel Publishing on behalf of Candle Books (imprint of Lion Hudson).

    My Review: There are five well known bible stories included in this pop-up book. Each story short and brief making is easy for young children to read. Read how Moses became a prince of Egypt, how God rescued Daniel from the lions, how Jesus brought a girl back to life, how the shepherd found his lost sheep and how Jesus stopped a storm. Each shot stories included a scripture reference for extended bible reading.

    Each story has a pop-up illustration that helps not only tell the story but brings it to life with its vibrant color scenes.




    FTC Disclosure: I received a review copy of this book from Kregel Publications in exchange for a fair and honest review. I was not monetarily compensated for my opinion in any way.

    I’ve often wondered why Christian parents are so content t

    I’ve often wondered why Christian parents are so content to give colorful, captivating books about Disney characters and nursery rhymes to their children, when similar books promoting Bible stories seem to be overlooked. One reason might be how hard it is to find decent Christian books for kids. So often the books one does find are so petty and trite, that it seems pointless to spend more money for them. Instead the cheaper, secular books find their way into our homes.

    While it might take a little more effort, collecting Christian resources for our kids is worth it. I’m as guilty as anyone when it comes to taking the easy way out on this. But more and more, there are an increasing number of good Christian books that we can get for our young ones.

    Juliet David is a prolific childrens’ book writer and has produced a wide variety of books for little hands and hearts. I’ve reviewed her "Candle Prayers for Toddlers" book, previously. In "My Pop-Up Bible Stories", she offers an engaging and well-produced book that is sure to interest one-three year olds, and their older siblings. Just about any pop-up book will fascinate kids of all ages, but they are so easy to break and tear. This book published by Kregel seems sturdy and durable enough to handle some abuse.

    The stories that are included are simple. Baby Moses in his little ark, Daniel in the Lion’s den, Jarius’ daughter rising up when Jesus takes her hand, the shepherd looking for a lost sheep, and Jesus stopping the storm. There isn’t a lot of text included for the stories, but the Scripture references are shared. This approach allows parents to teach the story at the child’s level.

    Daniel Haworth has provided engaging and colorful illustrations. My two year old and four year old girls are most interested in this book. While the message is not overtly Gospel-centered, it isn’t just a bunch of fluff either. The stories stick to Scripture but are told at a child’s level. This resource will be a helpful addition to our collection. I’m sure if you have little hands, something like this will come in handy.

    Reviewed by Kristie I. for Readers Favorite

    "My Pop-Up Bible Stories," written by Juliet David and illustrated by Daniel Haworth, is a treasure for young children! There are five well-known Bible stories included in this book. Each story is told in a brief paragraph and then the passage where the story can be found in the Bible is given. Along with each of the stories is a pop-up illustration that is very vibrant and filled with detail, and portrays the story well. The stories included in this book are: Daniel being rescued from the lion's den, Moses becoming prince of Egypt, the little girl being brought back to life, the shepherd finding his lost sheep, and Jesus stopping the storm.

    I must say that this is a beautiful book. I was in awe of the illustrations when I first opened the book! My children's favorite page is the story of Jesus stopping the storm. Jesus' arm moves as do the fish and the duck. This book is a great way to teach and to make us visualize the stories and lessons from the Bible. This book is meant for young children as the stories are very short and the illustration quite fitting. I am sure older children too will enjoy it. This book really brings to life the stories for children and it is a great way to show children the stories and help them to remember them. Care should be taken when reading this book, especially with very young children, as the illustrations may rip and tear apart easily. This is a book that you will not want to miss out for sharing with your children!
