    Bible "what if's" for kids

    What if early Bible events were happening today? What if the things we take for granted were also available to Noah or David or Adam? That is what Sandy Silverthorne is asking in her new book, "The Awesome Book of Bible Stories for Kids." Each story begins with a Bible based synopsis, adds the "what if," and then encourages the reader to "Get Real" by reading the correct Bible passage. This book lets children use their imagination, then look up what really happened. Samson was a strong warrior. What if he was their gym teacher? David was too young to fight, yet took down a giant. What if kids could watch someone stand up to a bully on TV? Achan stole when God told the Israelites to destroy everything. What if CSI were there to put the clues together? These are just a few of the wonderful "what if's" in this book.

    This was a fun, quick read for me. I found myself giggling at some of the stories (Adam naming the animals while an animal program was filming, for example). This is another tool for parents to use with their children. While encouraging questions, this book also provides the answers. It will make a great addition to a home or church library. Thank you, Net Galley, for the opportunity of reading this proof on my Nook.
