“Ready, Set, Find as you read the story of Christmas in this interactive board book for young readers,” the back jacket states in Zonderkidz children’s book, Ready, Set, Find Christmas.
~ What ~
This numbered twelve-page board book with rounded corners and five page-tabs targets children ages four to eight years old who enjoy the story of Jesus’s birth. With the left side of the pages being a bright yellow background with a sentence or two about Jesus being born, underneath are eight colorful objects with their names listed. The opposite pages are detailed and colorful illustrations that matches the story and contain each of the objects to find.
The simple story includes Joseph and Mary going to Bethlehem, being told there was no room at the inn, and having to stay in a stable, as well as Jesus being born and the shepherds and wise men visiting the Savior of the world.
~ Why ~
Having a three-year-old grandchild who lives out of state, I cannot wait to share this cute and fun book with her because she loves to match up duplicate pictures. I like how the illustrations are colorful while being easy to identify with some of the same items included again on other pages. It reinforces the Christmas story while searching for objects in the artwork.
~ Why Not ~
Those who do not believe in Christ or have a personal relationship with Him will probably avoid this book that contains Christ’s birth. Some beginner readers may have trouble reading the book by themselves.
~ Who ~
No information is offered regarding the illustrator.
~ Wish ~
It would help if some of the complicated wording were easier to understand for the younger listeners. I wish all pronouns of God were capitalized for reverence.
~ Want ~
If you are looking for an engaging children’s book that is interactive with objects to find in the illustrations, this makes an excellent addition to a child’s bookcase.
