This bright Bible storybook highlights the adventurous stories in the Bible and points its readers to God’s mighty power. The language is action-packed and kid-friendly, which makes it a great book to read out loud. The short stories, easy-to-read bold words sprinkled throughout each story, and the bright, cartoon-styled art will keep kids engaged. Each story is paired with a “Mighty Thought”—a simple statement that summarizes the Bible story. (Examples include God made the world; God is always in charge; God is a mighty leader; God rescues his people; God makes his power known). At the end of the story, the Power Words section gives a short scripture that can be used as a memory verse. The story ends with an activity designed for the active child (measure yourself with books and measure Goliath’s height with books; make a megaphone from a milk jug—to have a loud voice like Jonah needed).

Rumble! Zap! Pow! by Diane Short and Illustrated by Luke Daab is a sweet and fun little Bible that packs a quick punch in a short space. All the stories focus on ways that God proved himself mighty throughout the Bible and each story features a Mighty Thought (kind of like the theme), Power words (or key verse), and and activity to drive everything home.
I think this children's Bible is an ideal pick for little boys for a whole host of reasons! My son loved the comic book style. I think it keeps him actively involved, following all the different pictures around the page. All the comic book style action words really take the stories into "boy language" and speak straight to their little sound-effect sensibilities! And there is just the cutest little sheep super hero who introduces all the stories- so that appeals to both mom and boys!
I will say that it is pretty surface, as Children's Bibles tend to be, but if you are just looking for a good overview of Bible Stories that present them in such a way that your kids are sure to listen, then you will most definitely enjoy Rumble! Zap! Pow!

Rumble! Zap! Pow!, Mighty Stories of God", by Diane Stortz, is a great compilation of adventurous bible stories for active young readers. If your little one is desiring more action in his or her daily bible reading, this book is sure to please.
It almost reminds me of a hard cover comic book with illustrations that are bright and cheerful. Words like, "Rumble!", Whoosh!", Thud!, are all over the place and making reading exciting.
I thought that this book was good for preschool aged children, boys, or really active kids.

Rumble! Zap! Pow! Is an action packed comic style book with a deeper meaning. It has several bible stories from both the Old Testament and the New Testament, 40 in all. Each comic has a mighty thought which kind of sums up the big point in the story, power words which includes a small bible verse, and activity which encourages an easy hands on activity to go with the story. I love the lay out of this book I think it would be a wonderful addition in any preschooler's book collection. The pictures are very childlike I would not recommend this one for the older child. I think this book is best suited for kids ages 2-6. I know just the little boy in my life who will adore this! I give this sweet little boy's comic book 5 stars out of 5!!

Rumble! Zap! Pow! Sounds a lot like those old comic strips or even the old time super hero shows. Yet this unique children's book combines both a comic strip version of some of the classic Bible stories we have come to know and love in one hardcover version called Rumble! Zap! Pow! by Diane Stortz.
The Bible is full of action and adventure! Follow Moses as the walls of water part with a Whish!
March around Jericho with Joshua and hear the RUMBLE! of the city walls crashing down. Watch Goliath fall down with a giant-sized THUD! And listen in with the amazed disciples as a mighty WHOOSH! fills the room.
Perfect for energetic preschoolers, these 40 exciting stories and engaging activities make the Bible come to life for kids...and teach them how mighty our God is!
The best part following each of these colorful, comic strip stories is the activities that follow each. Such as Find crayons or markers. Get these colors: red, blue, green, yellow and purple. In your yard or at the park, match the colors of your crayons to the colors in God's beautiful world. This activity follows the creation story. There are even great scripture verses to practice memorizing such as the Power Words: I am the Lord who made all these things ~ Isaiah 44:24.
What a great and educational way to incorporate Bible learning in our earliest learners. I can see this book as a perfect introduction to the Bible for children just learning to read.
I received this book, compliments of Tyndale House Publishers for my honest review and have to say it rates a perfect 5 out of 5 stars.

Rumble! Zap! Pow! Mighty Stories of God by Diane Stortz and illustrated by Luke Daah. This is a delightful Bible story book that share stories about God for young children. Each of the forty stories are introduce by Super Sheep in comic-book-style illustrations. At the top of each story, Super Sheep shares a "Mighty Thought", such as God made the world, God heals our body and God works mighty miracles. The stories are taken from both the Old and New Testament Books of the Bible and are only a few pages long, which is good for active children. At the end of each story there is a scripture reference labeled as "Power Words". Every story has an activity to further engage your child in the story. There are crafts, games and more.
Rumble! Zap! Pow! is a great first devotional for young children. Children often times will not sit still for long periods of time and this book is perfect for introducing short stories from the Bible in a creative style and engaging manner. My five-year-old enjoyed the stories and the activities at the end. We had a lot of fun playing "Simon Says". She loved it!
