Product Description

Eight Bible stories are depicted in bright color and comic, cartoony illustrations. There is a sentence or two explaining the scene at the top, and then details to spot, mistakes to find, and questions to answer along the sides of the picture, such as, "Did Noah's workmen REALLY have power tools?" and "How many rabbits are in the picture?" Children will love scouring the illustrations to find the answers and spot more amusing details in the busy artwork of Emiliano Migliaro. The stories are Noah and His Great Ark, Moses Crossing the Red Sea, Joshua and the Fall of Jericho, David and Goliath, Daniel and the Lions, Jonah and the Big Fish, Feeding the 5,000, and Man Through the Roof. Recommended for ages 5 to 7 years.

    When I review young children's books, I always do so with a mind toward whether one of my little nephews might enjoy it. After all, the test of a kids' book is whether or not kids like it as much as I enjoy reading it with them.

    "Bible Stories Gone Crazy" is a winner, because all three (ages 6 and under) can enjoy it together or separately. A larger sized hardcover book, "Bible Stories Gone Crazy" offers a sort of "Where's Waldo" learning environment where kids can enjoy finding goofy mistakes in drawings depicting bible stories.

    "Did Noah have electric tools and cement mixers? Did the Israelites really have surfboards," asks the book. But among the silliness and the complex, colorful drawings are some more serious questions bordering the pages, like, "how many pairs of animals are there?" or "Do you know why the king threw Daniel into the pit of Lions?" that teach kids math and reasoning skills as well as some bible history.

    Stories highlighted include Noah and the Ark, Moses and the Exodus, Joshua and the Wall of Jericho, David and Goliath, Daniel and the Lion's Den, Jonh and the Whale and the Miracle of the Loaves and Fishes. There is quite a lot packed into this book for hours of learning fun.

    One complaint. Perhaps I received a damaged copy, but several of the plastic-covered pages were creased and the stitching binding the book together doesn't allow pages to lie flat to facilitate exploring the drawings for hidden mistakes.

    A copy of the book was provided by the publisher.

    Josh Edward, Author, & Emiliano Migliardo, Illustrator, in their new book Bible Stories Gone Crazy! published by Lion Hudson gives us Eight Bible stories depicted in bright color and comic, cartoony illustrations.

    From the back cover: Did Noah have electric tools and cement mixers? Did the Israelites really have surfboards?

    Heres a bunch of Bible stories illustrated more crazily than you can imagine!

    Can you find all the artists jokes and deliberate mistakes?

    Emiliano Migliardo has illustrated, with his wonderful artwork, eight Bible stories presented by Josh Edward. This was great fun for me so I can only imagine how much more fun it will be for children. Not only are the stories told but there is the added benefit of items that do not belong in the art. Surfboards, Frankfurter Cart, Boy Scouts eating Smores around a campfire and in each story. Then in every picture there is Teddy, the teddy bear, that you have to find and sometimes he is in there more than once. The stories are Noah and His Great Ark, Moses Crossing the Red Sea, Joshua and the Fall of Jericho, David and Goliath, Daniel and the Lions, Jonah and the Big Fish, Feeding the 5,000, and Man Through the Roof. This book will provide hours of entertainment and a great way to teach the Bible stories to your children. I recommend this book highly and look forward to more from Mr Edward and Migliardo.

    This book is a keeper! I havent seen another one like it! It is recommended for ages 5-7 years but I would stretch it both ways and make it ages 3-10 years! So many things I like about this book. On the practical side, it is a little bit bigger than an 8 x 11 sheet of paper. Usually I prefer books for children to be smaller so they can hold them, but in this case I appreciate the larger size. The book will probably be laying on a flat surface while the children look over the pictures! The whole book is super sturdy, but I was impressed with the thickness and glossiness of the pages. Crayon would not mark on them, and regular markers just beaded up and wiped off. (Yes I tested it!)

    There are 7 Old Testament Stories and 2 New Testament. Each story is one illustration across two pages. At the top of the page are 3 or 4 sentences summarizing the Bible story.

    These are similar to Wheres Waldo but made for little eyes to hunt and find. I found there are just enough pictures to make it interesting and challenging but not so many that they would become overwhelmed. The illustrations are comical and in super bright colors. Around the edge of the pages are pictures of characters for them to locate and funny questions. In teaching young children for the past 41 years, I have found obviously silly questions get their attention and make them think about what they are learning. It also helps them gain confidence in being able know the right answer. In addition it also adds to the fun!

    A scripture reference is included near the bottom of the page, so you can read the actual biblical account. I plan to read the scripture then do then do the activity. For very young children you might want to read the from a Bible Story book. A book you will want to own!

    From the moment the book arrived the boys wanted to read this beautifully illustrated book, especially once the first page was turned and they saw the guys with hard hats building Noahs Ark.

    The author quickly brought bible stories to life and the boys were full of questions, and were asking good questions, and enjoying the humor that made them think. We had a carnival hawker selling rocks at the story of Little David Beats Goliath or another example that made them laugh was a picnic in the whales mouth and hot air balloons in the Jonah and the Monster Fish, they took turns picking out the funny happening, all the while remembering the real story.

    This has become a favorite, and it seems there is always something new to find here. Highly recommend this one for you book collection.

    I received this book through Kregel Blogger Book Tours, and was not required to give a positive review.

    There is nothing like an easily written and colorfully illustrated book for children about the Bible. "Bible Stories GONE CRAZY! by Josh Edwards is illustrated by Emiliano Migliardo. There are 8 Bible stories in the book. The child is asked to find the teddies in the paintings and to explore the pictures to find mistakes.

    It is fun to look for the mistakes in the illustrations. For example, in the Bible story about Daniel in the lions den there is a lion carrying a bundle of balloons. There is also a chalked game of Hop Scotch in the lair. One angel carries dentures in her hand. I could imagine children laughing at these paintings. For a synopsis, you can read about two to three sentences at the top of the page.

    Near the bottom of the pages are the scriptures that will fit the drawings.The scriptures are rather lengthy. It is helpful to think of the child's age. Probably, an adult will read the stories to the child. The question is whether your child would begin to wiggle and lose interest during the story telling.

    At the bottom of the pages, there are a series of questions. To answer the questions, the child must look at the pictures on the pages again. Reading the book and looking at the art helps the child develop proficiency with concentration and observation skills. Counting skills can become developed as the child counts the teddy bears in the illustrated pictures. To help along the way, the exact number of teddy bears are found on the last page of the book, the answer page.

    The book begins and ends with a funny picture from a Bible story. All the way through the book, there is this feeling of playful fun. The back and front covers give an idea of the fun to be found inside the book. The illustrations definitely fit the description "comically illustrated." Kregel Publications
