Author Elijah Buchan5 Stars Out Of 5A cute chronological critter Christmas storySeptember 23, 2020Author Elijah BuchanI love how different animals along the chronological story of the Bible are used to lead kids through the Christmas story!
BrittDiIorio5 Stars Out Of 5Beautiful, Biblically sound book for little ones!November 28, 2018BrittDiIorioQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5These books are absolutely beautiful! The colors and illustrations are the best I've seen in a children's book. I love that it not only teaches about different animals, but also goes through a storyline of the animals appearing in scripture from Eden to Bethlehem. I will be buying those books for all of my momma friends and their babies!
Emily H.4 Stars Out Of 5Great children's book but better suited for older preschoolersNovember 7, 2018Emily H.Quality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 4We love all the baby believer books. Unlike many Christian children's books these typically contain a whole scripture verse(s) to go along with each page not a watered down version. Each book topic is carefully thought out to captivate the attention of young children while not staying to far from scripture. The illustrations are beautiful!
These books can be used by a variety of ages. With my infant/toddler we just look at and talk about the pictures and act out the animal and make its sound. The one downside of this book is that many of the scriptures chosen are long for those 2 and under and don't keep their attention.
Keri Snyder5 Stars Out Of 5Great Book!November 5, 2018Keri SnyderThis book is highly recommended for kids. I love how it carries the story of the Gospel throughout. The pictures are beautiful and everything is simple for little ones to enjoy!
Fizzy Pop2 Stars Out Of 5I loved the illustrations, they were bold and colorful and easily identifiable for very young toddlers and children.November 5, 2018Fizzy PopQuality: 3Value: 3Meets Expectations: 1I'm forever on the lookout for good Bible based books for the Minions, now my niece (who is 3) and nephew (just a baby) to learn and grow with. When this book crossed my Net Galley radar I knew I needed to review it. This is a new author to me who brings an intriguing idea to mind that I wanted to grasp hold of. The idea that you can take a book with truths you want to impart to your child and use the same book through different age stages to reinforce the idea. The book is billed for ages birth to 4. Something, that in the right environment, can truly bring home the Biblical truth of redemption. However. . .
OK, I loved the illustrations. They were bold and colorful and easily identifiable for very young toddlers and children. However, once you get past some of the obvious ones such as the snake and the donkey they lost me just a little bit. I think the loss was in the idea that the Bible versus were not tailored to the understandable vocabulary of a young child. You get into the section from Isiah that tells of the coming of Christ and how the lion will lie down with the lamb and the lion shall eat straw like an ox, etc. Honing in on these animals is a great way to reach children and again the pictures were so capturing but the words that accompanied it are beyond the grasp of my niece.
Starting out with the first image we have words like enmity and betrothed. I truly believe that children can and should learn the Bible (I'm not quite as adherent to a specific version as I know others are) but I also believe that if we want our children to choose the Bible through their lives and want to study the Bible we have to make it approachable for them. I remember as a child struggling to care about reading from the Bible as the words and phrasing were over my head (and I was an advanced reader!). I remember that it wasn't on my radar of want to read books like so many others I buried myself into. I can't help but think that if there had been more approachable, more to my level of understanding, options available that I might have developed a stronger appeal to God's Word than I did. And perhaps I might have actually put forth the effort and desire to study it sooner in life than I did.
I was provided a complimentary copy of this book by NetGalley. I was not compensated for this review and all thoughts and opinions expressed are my own. I was not required to write a positive review.
