Title: My Lift-the-Flap Bible
Retold by: Michael Berghof
Illustrator: Gill Guile
Publisher: Tommy Nelson
“My Lift-the-Flap Bible Stories is a wonderful introduction to the Bible and a perfect gift for the children in your life,” the back jacket states in this book.
~ What ~
This twenty-page hardbound with rounded corners targets children four to eight years old who enjoy board books with hidden flaps. Even though it has stories of Daniel in the lions’ den, Jonah in the large fish, and that Jesus died, there are no scary visualizations in the thirteen stories retold from the Holy Bible.
As readers view five stories from the Old Testament of creation, Noah’s ark, Moses leading the exodus, Daniel, and Jonah, the nine stories in the New Testament stories include Jesus’s birth, His miracle at the wedding in Cana, healing of a man, feeding the five thousand, walking on water, having His last supper, resurrected, and being with His disciples. When the thirty flaps are opened, children can visualize the joy and happiness that God gives to the scenes.
~ Why Not ~
I like how the short stories are written in paragraph format with brightly colored illustrations that cover the page. The flaps are of all sizes, entertaining a young child as they peep under them. I appreciate that the stories follow the Word of God.
~ Wish ~
Although there is no plan of eternal salvation or Jesus’s dying on the cross for our sins, the book is a good start for young ones to see the Bible’s importance through several retold stories.
~ Want ~
If you are looking for an interactive book for a child to lift flaps and see what is underneath, this one that focuses on well-known Bible stories will delight your little one.
Thanks to BookLook Bloggers for this complimentary book that I am evaluating by choice.
