This is an incredible result from the combined effort of three persons, producing a wonderful book for kids ages 4 to 8. The most important stories of the Christian Scriptures (Old and New Testaments) are told here in a language that is easy to the young children to understand and assimilate. After every story was told, there is what is called a Family Time, with activities like Talk, Do and Remember. This is a great orientation for your children to learn and grow in the right path (as it is written, "Start children off on the way they should go, and even when they are old they will not turn from it" - Proverbs 22:6). The illustration is monumental, one of the highlights of this book. The whole production was very carefully executed and the final result is really a masterpiece. This book was written by Monika Kustra, adapted by Betty Free Swanberg and illustrated by Andrzej Chalecki and was published by Tyndale House Publishers in August 2011 and they were kind enough to send me a copy for reviewing through their blogger book review program.
'Bible Stories for Preschoolers' by Monika Kustra, adapted by Betty Free Swanberg and illustrated by Andrzej Chalecki is an exceptional children's Bible story book. It is well written for the preschool age comprehension. I loved how there are questions throughout the text that just flow as part of the reading. It is a great way to engage and maintain interest in the story. The illustrations are lively, cute, and even humorous at times. I think any child would enjoy flipping through this book to enjoy the pictures. At the end of each story are several questions and talking points to help with story comprehension, and reinforce the lessons being learned. There's a memory verse too for every story. And my favorite part is the activities. They are really exceptional, doable, simple but really fun. All the activities really excited me as I read through them. I can't wait to do them with my children as we read through this book together. One example is with the story of Joseph and the famine is to create a 'store house' jar with trail mix type ingredients. You could even ration out the food throughout a week sharing how Joseph was in charge of collecting and sharing the food so that everyone could survive during the years of famine. It's also simply a great collection of Bible passages, very comprehensive. I could not be more pleased with this book and would love to see more from this collaboration, maybe a book of Psalms and Proverbs with pre-school devotional type format. I am very happy to be able to add this book to our collection. I received a copy of this book from Tyndale Publishing for the purpose of this review.
This book tells lots of stories from the Bible in a way that little ones can understand and not loose interest.
