What’s under the flaps? Find out in this collection of eight very simple Bible stories in a large cased board book format. Each story is told across a double-page spread and there are flaps on every page. Bright, quirky illustrations full of wit and color from Louise Anglicas are perfect for this engaging introduction to Bible stories.
Stories are: Noah and the Ark, Moses and the Bulrushes, Daniel and the Lions, Jonah and the Great Fish, Born in a Stable, Boy with Loaves and Fishes, The Lost Sheep, and Man Lowered Through the Roof.
This is such a fun book to read with young children. The illustrations are bright, colorful, and hold the interest of youngsters. Each page has several flaps to open and discover what is hiding underneath. It is nice that the flaps open at different angles and are different sizes, to help develop fine motor skills while the prose develops listening skills. This book is perfect to instill a love of books from a very young age.
I also like the sturdiness of the book. The book and pages are as thick as a board book, and the flaps will hold up to a lot of opening and closing. All in all, this book is great for little hands to explore.
The stories included in the book will introduce children to people from the Bible and help them become acquainted with their stories and settings. The language is simple and easy to understand.
If you are looking for a book for very young children, this is the one for you. It will hold up to many years of being read and loved.
I received a complimentary copy of this book from Kregel Publications in exchange for my honest review. All opinions are my own.
