...not because it helps children learn about the Bible
...not because its about a very big hero of the Bible
...not because its easy to read
...and certainly not because its a nice story
This book is special because it makes the story of Paul interesting to children. When I brought this book home, I showed it to my grandchildren. I asked if they wanted to read it, and I got replies like, not right now and I guess.
So I opened the book and began to read it to them, showing them each page as I read. By the time we finished the first chapter, I stopped so we could eat our dinner, but the children protested.
Grandma, keep reading! I told them wed read more as soon as we finished dinner. It passed quickly and we were soon deep into the story of Paul again.
The author does an amazing job of writing the book about the Apostle Paul, telling about his life before he met Jesus on the road to Damascus she doesnt go back and forth, referring him to Paul one moment and Saul the next she explains that he was born with the name Saul, but that soon after he began telling others about Jesus, he began going by the name Paul. Nancy mentions that he was born with the name Saul, and mentions this name another time, but mostly she refers to him as Paul (or the Apostle Paul). I think this helps children to understand better and not to get confused by using two different names throughout the book.
All in all, a wonderful book, and I'm overjoyed to report that my grandchildren can't wait to read the next one!
I was blessed to receive a free copy of this book in advance from the BookLook Blogger program
in exchange for an honest review.
Kianna RoseNew York, NYAge: Under 18Gender: female5 Stars Out Of 5Book Review: Get To Know Apostle PaulJuly 29, 2014Kianna RoseNew York, NYAge: Under 18Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5Get To Know Apostle Paul is a full-color biography for kids complete with easy to understand text portions, fun facts titled Did You Know? and a dictionary of sorts that define words such as resurrection and false witnesses to give kids a better understanding of Bible terms. I found all of these resources within the book to be helpful and insightful. Not only is Get To Know Apostle Paul an easy read, it's also an entertaining read. Any curious child with an appetite for learning will find this read enjoyable. I think my favorite part are the full-color photos; they're just like the ones found in "grown-up" Bible dictionaries and concordances. The overall look of this book, I think, also encourages young children in their own study of scripture because it's easy to use but bits of it resemble study books parents use.
So, if you're looking for fun Bible study resource for your children (or younger siblings) I highly recommend the Get To Know series including the Get To Know Apostle Paul title.

Sanders. What a great book! The book makes it easy for children to understand who Apostle Paul was and of his life. I love the vibrant and beautiful pictures.
In addition to the colorful pictures, there are sections of the following:
Did You Know? - Which tells of small tidbits of information or facts
Eyewitness Account - Which is of historians of the time of eyewitness accounts that tell of the time about the time Apostle Paul lived.
Word Bank - This is on most pages that tell the meaning of certain words. These words are also included in the Glossary of the book
Bible Hero - Tells of certain heroes from the Bible scriptures
Timeline of Mary - Shows an approximate dates of Apostle Paul's life and what was going on around the world at the same time
I think this book is great for kids and adults, as well. I enjoyed reading it. I was quite impressed with it. I look forward to other books in the Get to Know series.
I definitely recommend it to children so they can learn about Apostle Paul.

When I am searching for new books to review, I often am looking for myself. Our book budget goes to text books and books for the children mostly so the best way I am able to read new books is by reviewing them. But, after a friend's recommendation I went back and chose this book, and I am so glad I did! It is fantastic! It is packed full of information about Paul, including his child hood and how he was raised on through his time in Rome and his death. It even includes background information. For example when the book talks about Saul being from the tribe on Benjamin the book discusses the twelve tribes and where they came from. It also includes full color illustrations, maps, photographs, art work, and even a time line. Also, vocabulary is defined on every page. At the end of each chapter is a section that includes: eyewitness accounts, did you know trivia, and information on Bible Heroes discussed in the chapter.
Apostle Paul, part of the get to you know you series is a wonderful resource for children and even adults may learn a thing or two they didn't already know. I am definitely looking for other books in this series to add to our book shelf

SunflowersWVAge: 35-44Gender: female4 Stars Out Of 5Great addition to any child's bookshelfJuly 1, 2014SunflowersWVAge: 35-44Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5This is a title that you will want to add to your bookshelf. Not only does it give an account of who Paul was and what he did, but it is chock full of extras like the "hero" notations of other people such as Ananias, Barnabas, and Amos. Or the "did you know" sections full of interesting tidbits.
The photographs help the reader to really picture what things may have been like during Paul's time, the maps help us to keep all his travels organized, and the artwork opens a door for some great conversations. (What do you think Paul may have looked like? How do you envision the scales falling from his eyes? etc)
There were few minor things that rang as wrong with me, such as, "Jesus taught that the traditions of the Jews were not as important as the Scriptures said." on pg. 27. I never read anything in Scripture that said traditions were important, and such a statement comes across as Jesus contradicting Scripture which was not the case. Still, they were very minor and probably wouldn't even come to a child's attention.
I look forward to reading the rest in the series and adding them to my child's library.
