With stories from both the Old and New Testaments, this big book means big fun and learning for little ones.

SuzieNashville, TNAge: 35-44Gender: female3 Stars Out Of 5Three and a Half StarsMarch 15, 2018SuzieNashville, TNAge: 35-44Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 3To be perfectly honest, I'm not exactly sure how I feel about this one. It's an interactive book where you can scan a QR code, choose the image that's on the story page in the book and get a little video. Maybe I'm old fashioned, but do toddlers really need time playing with smartphones?
That said, parents can read these short (and by short, I mean 3-4 sentences) Bible stories to their young ones. This board book is a good size and the pages are sturdy so no matter how many times you're asked to read it, the book is going to withstand the test of time and toddlers.
The simplistic storytelling and the easy questions and answers are an excellent way to get children started in the Word early. As they grow, the details can be filled in for each of these stories. The colorful illustration offer plenty to catch the eye and may even promote more questions as the reading becomes more familiar.
Over all, this is a quick way to engage children during their formative years with stories that won't require them to stretch their attention span longer than a couple minutes.

VeraNorth CarolinaAge: Over 65Gender: female5 Stars Out Of 5They will love it (& the free downloadable app)March 8, 2018VeraNorth CarolinaAge: Over 65Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5This is such a nice Bible story book for toddlers. With a softly padded cover and sturdy board pages, it will be one that wee hands can safely handle and enjoy. They will love to find it and take it to someone to read to them.
This little book is more than a collection of Bible stories briefly told so the very young child can understand. There are key questions with answers that accompany each story. Not just about the story, but about theology. This will be the beginning of your child's instruction into a deeper understanding of Biblical truth.
Example: "Why does God punish sin?" Answer: "God is holy. He never sinned, He is right to punish sin." "Who is always in control?" Answer: "God is always in control."
The illustrations of these Old and New Testament stories will appeal to the young child. What is very appealing to today's young who are so captivated by technology is the ability to download an app that is used with the book to "read" the story and view the illustrations in an augmented, or 3-D effect, manner. The story as voiced on the app is clear and very understandable. The text is slightly different from that which appears on the page. Each icon in the book denotes a "chapter" that is accessed through the app's menu. Super fun. They will need a smart phone or tablet to do this. But the book is great as a unit itself without the need to utilize the app feature.
A great addition for homes with young children.

JSimmo195 Stars Out Of 5Great Book for 0-3sFebruary 22, 2018JSimmo19Quality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5I am a big (pun absolutely intended) fan of The Big Picture Interactive (TBPI) series - the combination of great artwork, technological elements and focus on Christ is a win for this series and this new book is no different!
You will have guessed by the title that this padded book is a great one to read aloud to you nought to threes, although I'd probably say by then your older ones may be on the verge of being able to handle something a little more. Each double-page contains a story of about six lines in large enough font for little ones to see (and follow you finger along). a full page illustration complete with Augmented Reality icon and a "Big Picture Question" and "Big Picture Answer".
I want to dive into the literary content first - the stories themselves. This Bible storybook contains some of the big ones - stories your little one is likely to have heard from a young age "David Fought Goliath", "The Ten Commandments" and "Jesus and Lazarus" but to name a few of the 20 stories portrayed on thick cardboard pages. The stories are presented using clean, crisp fonts and present the heart of the scripture in a clean and concise way, with a reference to the scripture being summarized given too. This would be perfect for a quick five minute story time before bed!
Another element of the book is the imagery, now we use The Gospel Project for our preschool and younger elementary kids and so I have always loved how the imagery is consistent across that and the imagery kids are seeing in church and on take home activities. The artwork is simple and fun, yet looks so good!
One of the things I have always loved about TBPI series is the focus on Christ. Each of the literature for older children I have looked at in this series features a summary of a key point from the story and how that relates to Christ. This is a little different, with the "Big Picture Question" aiming to reveal something about who God is from the story or our state as fallen people - with the gospel being clearly sewn into these questions throughout the book as sin is highlighted as an enemy, and Jesus said to be the only way to be saved. So whilst it takes a different stance to older books, the age appropriate way in which the gospel is presented throughout is good!
Now, my favorite part about these books is always the Augmented Reality element - I've said it before that these books are worth their price without this, but this takes it to the next level. The story itself actually comes to life, with narration, in a way that blows my mind - I love TBPI series so much because of this!
So, there you have it! My thoughts on another addition to the excellent TBPI collection! I'd encourage parents to get it and use it for you 0-2s, and if you have a 3 year-old pick it up and have a look, but I think you'll still find use for it!
