Keep curious young minds busy with these detailed depictions of Bible history, and a glimpse behind the scenes with flaps to lift on every page
Jesus took his message to all kinds of people in all kinds of places—from the shores of Lake Galilee to the bustling streets of Jerusalem. This book takes readers right into the world that he knew, with appealing illustrations and flaps that open to reveal all kinds of fascinating details. Brief text explains the setting, and references events and stories from Jesus' life. The book covers the first Christmas, illustrations of a synagogue and carpenter's workshop in Nazareth, fishing in Capernaum, farming and shepherding in the hills of Galilee, homes of the wealthy and everyday people, the temple in Jerusalem, the way of the cross, and the first Easter.
ACS Book FinderAge: 45-54Gender: female5 Stars Out Of 5Very goodDecember 1, 2014ACS Book FinderAge: 45-54Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5This is a great book. My children always enjoyed lift-a-flap books and we would read them over and over again. My children are now grown, but my grand-daughter is no different. This particular book covers the life of Jesus from birth to ministry to crucifixion to resurrection. The short and simple descriptions give opportunity for further discussion about the life of Jesus. The illustrations are colorful and very nicely done. Although the target age of this book seems to be K5 and older, you can easily adapt to a younger children.
The book is only 16 pages long, but each page is detailed enough that you could treat each page as an individual book and spread the reading out over several days or for bedtime stories. It is also a hard-copy book and the pages are thick cardboard type material.
I highly recommend this book as a staple to your library for your children. It is very good!! (rev. P.Howard)

i blog 4 books1 Stars Out Of 5Would Not RecommendNovember 23, 2014i blog 4 booksNot sure I would recommend this book. While the idea seems goodto give young readers an idea of what life during the time of Jesus would have been likeI didn't think it was executed very well. There is very little text on each page to explain what you're looking at. I felt like it would have been more helpful to have single words over pictures (more like a beginner book ... think Richard Scarry). Multiple stories from the Bible were referenced on the same two-page spread, and I wasn't sure of the purpose. It seemed confusing to me as an adult ... almost as though the book was trying to say that those stories happened simultaneously when they did not. I would give this book a pass.
I received a free copy of this book from the publisher in exchange for my fair and honest review.
MoonpiePRYORAge: 55-65Gender: female5 Stars Out Of 5UNIQUE, FUN AND GREAT QUALITY!November 19, 2014MoonpiePRYORAge: 55-65Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5What a wonderful idea! A book for little ones to learn not only about Jesus, but also what life was like in the times he lived in! I feel it will help them connect Jesus was a real person that lived on earth The book is super sturdy (very important!) and can be wiped clean.
The illustrations were colorful, bright, and well done. I especially liked how detailed they were. There was a lot to look at. I remember as a child how intensely I looked at the pictures, noting every tiny detail that I am sure the grownups missed!
The book covers 8 parts of the Lords life from birth to resurrection. The author did a wonderful job getting the information across but keeping it simple. Each section is covered in 2 pages. There is a short paragraph explaining the location and event in Jesuss life. Additional captions are scattered throughout the pages giving more information and further explaining the illustrations.
Flap books are a big hit with youngsters. It allows them to participate in the reading and it is also great fun! By being involved, they are more likely to remember the stories. Another thing I liked about this book was how many flaps there were. I counted 37! Most books have one on each page and that is never enough for the pint size reader! A book any child would treasure and enjoy! If you buy one be prepared to be asked to read it over and over!
I received this book free from Kregel Publications, which requires an honest, though not necessarily positive, review. The opinions I have expressed are my own.
MaureenTSyracuse NYGender: female5 Stars Out Of 5Adorable Activity BookNovember 17, 2014MaureenTSyracuse NYGender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5What a great book to add to your childrens collection, and their spiritual education. The book is well illustrated and has very bright colors. Added to each page along with the story are little flip ups, a surprise with each of the individual pictures.
The story begins with the Stable in Bethlehem, at home in Nazareth, and as you read to your child they can open the flap at who is in the carpenters workshop? As we follow further into Jesuss life we are by the shore of Lake Galilee, open one of the doors; Fishermen sell their catch, splish splash. Then we have a rich mans feast, and we can open the shutters.
Traveling further along in the book are A Roman Trial, and A Garden Tomb. The book is made out of very sturdy cardboard, and you can spend a long and great time together getting to learn about the life of Jesus, and shows the world that Jesus knew.
Found this to be an adorable activity to spend with my child, along with being educational.
I received this book through Kregel Publications and was not required to give a positive review.
VeraNorth CarolinaAge: Over 65Gender: female5 Stars Out Of 5I heartily endorseNovember 16, 2014VeraNorth CarolinaAge: Over 65Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5This is a large, sturdy board book and each spread of pages has several "lift-the-flaps" designed in a variety of sizes that offer engaging educational opportunities for the child. Even though it is a "board book," it will be valuable and enjoyable for young readers as well as non-readers. Parents can use this as an invaluable teaching tool. But most of all, it is a very pleasant and lovely book for the child. The child is the important key word here. Engage the child. Educate the child. Help the child to learn of Jesus. This book will successfully do just that.
Look Inside the Time of Jesus is spot-on accurate (not an archeological "dig" type of book, though) to Bible times and Bible events. Each picture is replete with details that the child can engage in seek 'n find activities as well as the lift-the-flaps. I like that the flaps each are designed so that little fingers can lift them without difficulty.
I heartily endorse this book produced by Lion Hudson and distributed by Kregel. Hint: This would make a terrific Christmas gift for a child.
